About this Article

Floral references during the Milan Fashion Week womenswear previews ranged from the graphic motif to romantic bouquets or jungle foliage. It's not a sexy season. Collections for next summer are more romantic than racy and sheer fabrics suggest more than they show. The silhouette is loose and flowing -- with skirt lengths both baby-doll short and granny-dress long.
