As Piazza Sempione’s 25th anniversary approaches in 2016, the company used pre-fall as an opportunity to hone in its roots. Key to that are the house’s tailored pants — “Piazza Sempione pants” is Google’s first autofill suggestion when searching the brand’s name — here, updated in cropped silhouettes as well as exaggerated flares. Done in an autumnal palette, the lineup was classically understated with a few graphic details for visual interest. Geometric prints were inspired by the Cubist artworks of Sonia Delaunay, and oversized outerwear — a luxe standout — included a color-blocked cashmere coat and a camel poncho trimmed in mink.
