Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear
February 24, 2012 Milan
Piazza Sempione's 20th anniversary celebrations over, and a short-lived partnership with Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi similarly done and dusted, the label's Fall lineup was presented at its showroom today. The low-key affair matched the efficient, understated nature of the clothes. Piazza Sempione makes no claims to trendsetting, and that's just fine with its clients. Still, the new collection made glancing references to hot topics like peplums (theirs are on the subtle side, naturally) and head-to-toe prints. In fact, Piazza Sempione's print isn't a print at all, but a tweed made from wool and a paperlike silk. Their short-sleeve parkas came with built-in knit undersleeves, stretchy enough to squeeze a suit jacket under—not a bad idea.
