For her Pre-Fall 2016 collection, Pamella Roland focused on Peggy Guggenheim at her adopted home of Venice as her muse. The late philanthropist was known as an eccentric lover of art and opulence.

Roland focused her collection around this opulence of Guggenheim through luxurious brocade and silk fabrics trimmed with lace or furs. The silhouettes are classic, impeccably tailored in mostly monotone palettes of rich color, creating a sophisticated, regal sense about the collection.
Personal favorites are the black and metallic gold jumpsuit, the gown with the same black and gold fabrics with a cutout triangle at the bust, the pale blue and gold strapless brocade gown with jeweled waist, and the teal dolman sleeve caped gown.
