8 nood inn?; Zht JS'rj&nerj Hornin ?eralb TUESDAY, AUGUST 25, 1998 Jane de Tellga X i Si... 1 f i .1! -.i .i 1 5 i The new breed of young Italian designers is in town. f Leichhardt is Sydney's Little Italy, then where better to photograph a fresh crop of the younger Italian labels now available in Sydney. The hip and wearable Max & Co. little sister to the elegant Italian label MaxMara. has a spring-summer collection that is full of great basics, smart separates and cute accessories. Max & Co's stretch-denim pants-suit or diagonally striped stretch blaer over a knit tunic are just right for a weekend lunch in Norton Street - and it sure cracks that hardest of all dress codes, smart-casual. Versus, the diffusion line of Gianni Versace, was always Donatella's baby. And Gianni's little sister has always had an edgier, more streetwise style than the glamour of her brother. Versus is on the button with the clamdiggcr crae, even funkier in strange green lame teamed with a hip hooded anorak w ith slit shoulders. Fun American designer Anna Sui has her Jeans line made in Italy, produced and distributed by Gilmar. This is its second season in David Jones and the new range - with a touch of vintage and rock'n'roll, and a penchant for dolly-heads prints - is already selling fast. Team her cute cartoon-printed jeans w ith the hottest two-tone mules in fuchsia and purple from Italian must-have shoe label Sergio Rossi. Giorgio Armani has handed over the Emporio design reins to his niece, Silvana Armani, who now heads the design team. Last spring-summer season he brought her onto the catwalk at the end of the collection showing in Milan to acknow ledge her input in keeping the popular line young and fresh, but still with that unmistakable elegance. The muted colour palette and refined fabrication of the niched T-shirt, textured raw silk jacket and w ide linen pants have all the hallmarks of Armani good taste along with his characteristic soft tailoring.
