THE 90S TO 2000


Women’s wear… Voluminous cascading  outfits were still the rage.   Ample capes or jackets worn over voluminous flowing trousers.  Dresses and complete outfits in knitwear appeared.  Cold colors predominated.  The casual-chic, inspired by a quick glance at the trends in menswear,  entered into the female closet.

Men’s wear… An attempt to renew jackets was made by raising the collar (sopra di collo).  Lapels got shorter but were still wide.  Trousers were a little slimmer but the double-pleat fronts reappeared.  Everything had to be soft; rigid and structured garments had been banned, almost as if casualwear had completely annihilated the classical look.
