Something shifted as the show progressed, though. Restraint is not exactly the word, but Giorgetti did pull back a notch or two. Take the Prince of Wales Crombie coat with the camel-and-red color-blocking on the hem. In MSGM world it qualified as positively staid. You can't say the same thing about a purple-and-green-floral brocade trench, top, and pants combo. But "a total look," as they call it in the business, does qualify as news from a designer who is so closely identified with mix-and-match. Another surprise: a gray wool coat, blue cotton button-down, and camel patent-leather skirt—it was 100 percent print-free. It was good to see Giorgetti stretching himself here.
