Emanuel Ungaro founded his namesake house on Avenue Montaigne in 1967 after stints with some of the great couturiers, including Cristobal Balenciaga and Andre Courreges. He quickly became a hit for his uncompromised vision of opulence, such as his lavish gowns, dramatic silhouettes and vibrant hues. Now under the helm of British wunderkind, Giles Deacon, the house of Ungaro has bloomed anew with a fresh youthful spirit. The house signatures have been reinvented as bright florals and flirty proportions that nod to its heritage while looking towards a new sophistication. Deacon’s touch has also brought a new range of daywear, such as strict tailoring that brings a new twist to idea of power dressing.
