HAUTE HARLEQUINS
Milan: With Picasso’s harlequin paintings, the Commedia dell’Arte, and Pierrot on their minds, Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi created a colorful collection characterized by variations on the traditional harlequin diamond pattern. There were overlapping diamonds, pieced diamonds, striated diamonds, uneven diamonds, and even diamond paillettes. Some of the silhouettes also reflected the shape, with extra-wide, angular sleeves and nipped-in waists. Though the diamond extravaganza was overkill at points, there were plenty of positive elements in the show. Jewel tones and lustrous silks gave the looks a feeling of richness and luxury, and slim midi skirts were elegant and sophisticated. –Joanna Manganaro
