Milan: Luisa Beccaria A/W 2012 collection. Backstage Luisa Beccaria poses with some of her models. The Luisa Beccaria autumn/winter collection is centered around the conceptual contrast of lightness and structure. The focus is on the real woman, who works but can still dream. She is a woman of today, ambiguous and even controversial at times, very much in charge of her own time, but also ethereal and dreamful.
