In Piccioli's words, the diffusion collection is a romantic idea of a young girl thinking about fashion: mixing something new with something vintage with something couture. The result is full of charm: tulle ruffled cocktail dresses that look as sweet as they sound, fitted pants with cashmere capes for day, and for evening, a very on-trend brocade jacket. With a simple and feminine color palette—blacks, off-whites, and shades of blush—it has the potential to be as popular as its big-sister collection. And with so many items to pick from, we'd love to see a store in the U.S. soon.
