Malandrino designs for real women: Flattering bias cuts and woven knits emphasize curves; loose skirts with handkerchief hems elongate the legs; shirred or knotted tops show off the bust. Famous for playing with contrasting textures, the designer skillfully combines chiffon with heavy wool, or adds a swatch of heavy, embroidered fabric to a loose cotton top. There are handbags and shoes, too.
