Milan: Maurizio Pecoraro’s S/S 13 collection followed the trend in Milan this season for embellishment with sequins and crystals, but his version was refreshingly low-key and relaxed. Elongated and slouchy tanks, collarless jackets, loose skirts and sporty shorts were luxuriously beaded, with a neutral pumice hue edged in ombré plum making the pieces appropriate for everyday. There were brighter tones too, as well as cotton and liquid jersey, and Pecoraro stuck to several basic silhouettes while working a painted calla lilly motif inspired by Mapplethorpe throughout. Confidently uncomplicated, this Spring presentation was an elegant combination of polish and ease.—Nina Stotler
