Designer Roberta Furlanetto, who was born in Veneto and now works from Milan, has designed pieces for French maisons Christian Lacroix, Emanuel Ungaro, Christian Dior and Azzedine Alaia. Furlanetto's namesake ready-to-wear collection calls up couture craftsmanship while keeping the overall look clean, sophisticated, and modern.
