Milan: For his third season as designer of Genny, Gabriele Colangelo presented a collection based on rich textures and geometric patterns. The leathers were buttery and smooth, and tailored wide-leg pants in the material were lovely. Dimensional jacquards and cloqués harmonized with luxe metallics and a dreamy shade of teal. Most of the looks featured a contrast waistband that included a long black strip, which became a focal point. In some cases, in particular, the cleaner, mostly-white ensembles, this bit of contrast worked. However, it took away from the interesting patterns and sumptuous tones on others. Though his revival of the Italian label has been somewhat lackluster, Colangelo’s use of texture, tone and pattern here was enticing. –Joanna Manganaro
