Runway Trend Alert – Neo Noir

Film Noir, the genre full of desperate women, small-time private-eyes and dark, moody imagery, is a key touchpoint this season in Milan. Femme fatale style is conjured up with 1940s-ish silhouettes like strong shoulders, fitted sheaths, pencil skirts and mannish coats, all worn with a bit of alluring deshabille. Gloomy black-and-white landscapes — a key print direction this season — underline the romantic yet slightly disturbing aesthetic. —Sharon Graubard
