Adrian Oianu Spring/Summer 2008

Adrian Oianu is one of the few Romanian designers with a real interest for innovation and for building a well-defined style. His spring/summer 2008 collection, called The Beat, focuses on a sophisticated mix between two wardrobe key pieces, the trench and the dress, using soft, fluid fabrics, lots of pleating, frills and also sporty details.
