In his third collection for the famous Italian fashion brand, Alessandro Michele worked closely with Brooklyn artist Gucci Ghost best known for its graffiti of Gucci logos which could be noticed on silk skirts.
Michele successfully continued the story that began with his first collection so we could still see geek chic garments and accessories like glasses, hats and loose cut sequin dresses inspired by the modern librarian.
Also, we could see motifs of different animals worked into the structure of clothes, bright multicoloured dresses, tights, oversized coats… Runway looked like a big carousel of colours so it was surprising when business-like suit in black and grey or coat in white and brown showed up.
Oversized bomber jackets in grunge style were a perfect match with printed skirts, colourful socks and retro sandals.The whole collection was less layered than spring one but that doesn’t make er less powerful.
Michele proved us once again that he’s a master of diversity.
Donatella Versace put emphasis on street fashion which is luxurious enough but still wearable. she was thinking about business women who are wearing a sporty pencil skirt and short jackets to work and sequin dresses for the night out.
There are some interesting asymmetric cuts in skirts and dress which perfectly completed play of materials and colour. Little black dresses have experienced a complete twist complemented with contrasting details like that looked like a crack in the rock.
Because of bright colours such as sky blue, sunny yellow and pink we could think that we are watching spring line. Shades of blue accompanied the whole collection, made it fresh and airy and rounded up the story about women’s independence and strength. The iconic model bags “Palazzo Versace Empire ‘in black and yellow version got a boost in the form of a fur tail.
Dolce & Gabbana
Dressing princess is nothing new for the fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. Just a few days ago Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, appeared at a business meeting in a mini skirt of the eponymous house and have shown how to be appropriate and stylish dressed for the office. Experts in creating beautiful fairytales once again presented their work as a fantasy. Cinderella in a light blue glitter dress with puffy sleeves just before the cutest white dress white mice motifs all over, Snow White in a velvet dress with chandelier shaped bag… Visionary interpretation of fairy tails, that would embarrass Hans Christian himself, was present through the whole collection, but designers have remained true to their famous form. Short A- line dresses, luxurious designs inspired by the golden 1950s, and short jackets in the military style full of diamonds and pearls, medals and decorative bindings had the last word. Jackets combined with floral dresses that reach below the knees looked slightly dramatic, just like a modern independent princess with an attitude.
Adorable handbags like carrying cases got reinforcements in the form of details from fairy tales, as well as overly decorated Mary Jane’s with heels of Plexiglas and pair of shoes that looked just like Cinderella’s. Already distinctive parade at the end ,this time, it was consist of 76 models all dressed in short glitter dresses in peony, light pink and silver.
In her newest collection creative director Angela Missoni took us on the trip back to 70’s and disco era. Metallic lurex or blanket-like colourful coats were the light motif through the collection. Relaxed silhouettes and seemingly casual looks were raised to a higher level thanks to metallized fabrics present in long dresses and suits. Knit expert didn’t disappoint once again by pairing heavy knitted dresses with bright coloured sandals and socks. Long flared trousers and too long sleeves on tight turtleneck sweaters took us to 70’s and the David Bowie era. Casual and youthful collection that will refresh the gloomy autumn days.
Fendirumi furry monsters in ice cream pink and electric blue we could see on many handbags from but just a few days before the show, from Tokyo Fendi pop-up shop, 2 meters tall fendirumi monsters Piro-chan and Bug-kun arrived to Milan. Of course, everyone wanted to photograph with them and publish on social networks with the hashtag #Fendirumi. Very clever of Fendi marketing team …
Fun note was also present at the show in the form of turquoise boots that reach over the knee, navy coat with inevitable fur collar, fur coats in different colors and colorful bags.
The whole collection looked playful and light, with beautiful dresses and skirts with frills and cuts very similar to 60s.
