Italian term or phrase: vestimentarie
Sentence: "Prosegue il ripensamento delle identità vestimentarie." The context is the idea behind new fashions for 2004. Are they just talking about the identities associated with one's way of dressing? If so I can't come up with any elegant ways to express it...
