Designers like Roberto Cavalli, Haider Ackermann, Giambattista Valli, Missoni and many others have created impeccable pieces of garments either with sheer details or fully veiled with embroidered parts, with a wide range in their colour palette. From sporty chic to sexy style, this trend has many levels, in order to be assimilated by everyone and conquer all our summer appearances.
