According to Siriano's show notes this collection was inspired by the Congo jungle and the home of silverback gorilla along with plant life that surrounds the environment. Now all designers need inspiration, but for the client Mr. Siriano is aiming for; he may have missed the mark at least in his evening wear. As for the day it's strong consistent and works perfectly for the season. His opening Tiger wool cashmere leaf collar coat set the African tone as did his safari textured crepe open-back dolman sleeve blouse. In short the daywear shines but when evening came it seems his design hand did a dramatic shift. I do not know if he's shooting for red carpet looks but the opulence and drama was lacking which is something we have seen in previous seasons.
