Piazza Sempione is chasing rainbows for Resort. The collection offered looks in every shade of the Roy G. Biv spectrum, which was a nice shot of energy for the upscale department store label. An Yves Klein blue anorak had a nifty, detachable skirt, and an asymmetric-hem cape that doubled as a dress came in a pretty cerise. Designers Ionna Soleas and Daniele Calcaterra know their way around a pair of pants, and they showed tapered lemon-colored trousers here with a first-rate fit. Piazza Sempione remains focused on being well crafted as opposed to cutting-edge.
