For its return to the Milan calendar after a brief hiatus, Piazza Sempione splashed out with an art partnership, borrowing Fortunato Depero’s painting “Rotation of Dancer and Parrots” from the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto to exhibit alongside the spring capsule collection it inspired. Done purely in white cotton canvas and cotton organza, the clothes came in stark shapes — crisp tunics, airy shirts and skinny pants — that let the premium fabrics and decoration take center stage. A tunic was printed with a white-on-white pattern mimicking the brushstrokes in Depero’s painting and embellished with ballerina embroideries and paillettes. White tuxedo pants came with a hand-painted black stripe down the side. These were not clothes that fit into any current trend, nor did they seek to. Rather, they’re for a moneyed customer who appreciates fine quality and thoughtful details.
