MILAN — A smorgasbord of trends — from punk to ladylike — and a surfeit of heavy fabrics and somber colors made buying the Italian collections a challenge, retailers said.
“This is certainly the season for the skills of the buying team to create an optimistic buy based on beautiful fabrications that are not too thick and heavy, emphasizing cut, detailing and buying into color wherever we see it,” said Sarah Rutson, fashion director at Hong Kong-based Lane Crawford. “Clothes need to sing on the rail and draw the customer in.”
