Milan: Although the focus of Silvio Betterelli’s Spring collection was on pleating and folding, the designer was actually at his best when keeping it simple, exploring abstract prints and ombré instead of construction embellishments. Wearable pieces included a basic, marbled silk tank and a matched set of a splatter print long-sleeve blouse and floor-length skirt, rather than the peach dresses awkwardly twisted into voluminous origami. Volume did work, however, for a gunmetal, dropped peplum halter blouse paired with fluid, ombré-tipped trousers to create an easy, modern uniform. —Nina Stotler
