Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli toughened things up for fall, injecting an urban-sporty vibe into their chiffons and ruffles. They also rehashed the house’s iconic red, which they used for furs, lace tops and stovepipe pants. “We wanted to show a more dangerous attitude, so we experimented with slouchier, more organic volumes on the top, counterbalanced by skinny bottoms,” said Piccioli.


To wit, sculptured black jackets, blush pink and black lace blouses and short roomy furs were worn over skinny black pants in leather or lacquered cottons.
