Background: Claudio Tonini, one of Italy's fashion designers for the Younger Woman, presented Dec 2 the "Crown Line" in his Winter collection.
The Crown Line is emphasised by the waist bands of his models. The designer while not actually going against the Imperial Line, presented by another Milanese designer last September (Prod 9347) to accent high waists, does not emphasise the sack waist line. If anything Signor Tonini favours feminine curves.
