Rebirth, renewal, and reconstruction. New silhouettes highlight the runway: short and sleek, long and voluminous. Sleeves are slashed right through to embody cape-like cuts. Richly gathered necklines are scooped or run straight across, like a 15th century portrait. The "affresco" palette blends ochre, umber, sienna, black, and white with smudges of subtle color, like the soft pastels of an Italian Renaissance masterpiece.
