Milan: Up-and-comer Sergio Zambon’s models looked like a cross between Jackie O. and a 60s schoolgirl. While A-line minis and frilly chiffon frocks felt young and playful, sculpted bob hairdos and oversized sunglasses added a sophisticated element. Boxy suits channeled Jackie, while candy-striped mini dresses looked made for a modern-day Twiggy. From boxy shifts with sky-high hems to double-breasted outerwear, silhouettes were all Mod. Pale neutrals and a few navy items grounded the sweet pastel palette. Looks that placed bright white against cream or khaki were some of the freshest; a plain white tee and khaki skirt combo was simple yet chic. Texture was incorporated midway through the show, with glossy fringe covering the surfaces of several coats and dresses. Although Zambon’s line is still fairly new, the designer is no newcomer to the industry. Formerly the designer of Fendi’s men’s line, Zambon is an established figure in Milan’s fashion scene. The designer shined brightest when he kept things clean and classic; basic items with flattering cuts, like dresses and tops that created the illusion of narrow shoulders, will likely be his best sellers.
