Fashion is back in the spotlight, and so are the major labels. Coco Chanel made a splash in fashion in the 1920s. Then, in the 1970s it was Halston, whose disco dresses epitomized lithe, slinky sensuality. In the 1980s came Gloria Vanderbilt and Ralph Lauren and then...nothing. The 1990s, according to some in the fashion industry, were 'a wasteland of flannel shirts and saggy, even dirty, jeans.'Fortunately for fashionistas, the trend has reversed. Rinascimento is one of the fashion players bringing back glamour and chic to the streets with affordably priced urban boho designer wear. Unlike earlier decades, in which the label itself was king and fashion was all about status, today's clothes are more about personal expression.Rinascimento clothes are made in Italy, the fashion capital of the world. The line manages to combine girlish innocence and worldly sophistication throughout its collections. You'll find black and white used to great effect, as well as the juxtaposition of ruffles with straight lines, satin with lace, and feminine lines with menswear details.Rinascimento also has a collection for the larger woman, called Kitana. This line, too, is composed of examples of the sophisticated girlishness and boho detailing that's found elsewhere from this label. This year it's all about page pants with drawstrings, white lacy blouses, and unstructured denim in white and earth tones. Don't expect Italian styling to be conservative; it's all about creating a new personal look for every single season of your life.
