Milan: A relative newcomer, Italian designer Marco de Vincenzo is quickly becoming adept at focusing on one concept and seeing it through to a satisfying conclusion. His obsession for Spring was knitwear, but not just ordinary sweaters or stretchy pants. Instead, hand-painted, dimensional spiral cable-knit dresses clung to the body, their lines drawing the eye and flattering the figure. More difficult, but still unique, were knit leggings straight out of a surrealist ski-chalet, embellished with raised twin cables and paired with a coordinated tunic top. In an impressive finale to this experimental yet honed collection, de Vincenzo succeeded using metallic treatments to elevate his work for evening, closing on a long-sleeve knit dress slit to the thigh and armored with strips of gold paint.—Nina Stotler
