Is the Italian fashion industry doomed? These six promising designers would tell you that it's definitely not.
FLORENCE--As an editor, you see so much fashion that sometimes, as Diane Pernet says, you get "fashioned out." In general, it takes a lot to delight and surprise me when it comes to womenswear. Especially after a month of shows. So it was lucky that one of the few designers at Pitti creating pieces for women caught my eye before February's runway storm. Andrea Incontri, winner of Pitti's “WHO IS ON NEXT? UOMO” prize in the accessories category, staged a film and runway show/presentation at the Cinema Odeon on Piazza Strozzi. He showed a full collection--clothes, bags, accessories--for both men and women.
