MILAN — For fall, Italian designers are going for imaginative, contrasting proportions and shapes inspired by everything from Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles to Cubist paintings. Tailored looks are done in lady-of-the-manor tweeds, tartans and flannels, teamed with frothy silks for a romantic edge. In details and accessories, Marie Antoinette meets Queen Victoria with a flourish of bows, beads, rhinestones and even cameo-buckled belts.
