The brand’s dedication to innovating and enhancing its knitwear has not changed. High-waist trousers in breathable material, military style shirts and African tribal printed polo shirts were also seen on the Runway. The mood of the collection previewed on the second day of Milan Fashion Week, was encapsulated in an intricate sand-color crew-neck sweater with pieces of red and milky shell embroidered into decorative panels. A small leather talisman sack, for a good luck charm or precious object, was worn around the neck on strands of beads. The designer for the family label referenced the colors of the continent: indigo textile dyes from Benin, clay tones from Mali, and dark olive from the rain forests of Ivory Coast.
