EXCLUSIVE MILANO FASHION WEEK 2021: THE DATE BY CALCATERRA

Historic and ethnic influences are always present. This time, they trace parallel paths that blend Milanese bourgeoisie, Berber culture, and an

over-the-top contemporary babushka style.

Colors, from stones to earthen hues, are linked by a trickle of oil
