Marni is only 20 years young this year, meaning the fashion house is younger than I am! So for their anniversary show, Consuelo Castiglioni along with her husband and daughter, Gianni & Carolina, celebrated with an experimental but still beautiful collection that reflects the now & the future of the label rather than throwing it back to previous collections. It moved from the blank canvas of neutral hues and feminine cuts and Japanese-inspired shapes, then introduced some colour and pattern before exploding into a colourful array of floral prints and back again to monochromatic patterns.
The Spring collection at the Salvatore Ferragamo show was a mix of subtle minimalism and sexy but classy animal print crazy. Grey beige looks started the show with zesty accents, fringe and snakeskin details that then transformed into more elaborate looks featuring animal prints and more citric fruit hues before ending with black, blue & brown dominance.
Dolce & Gabbana
I always look forward to the D&G shows, and my oh my, I fell in love instantly. From the opening look of a short three-piece ensemble in textured & embroidered black, to the confection of crystal & hearts embellishments on lace, the women’s suits, the sexy & sultry lingerie, the florals, the polka dots, the regal touches and the closing of the show where all models wore matching shirts & high-waisted bubble shorts. Domenico Dolce & Stefano Gabbana did an astounding job for the collection, I was in love from start to finish and want it all.
Oh how they Luisa Beccaria show delivered utter ethereal romance. Floral motifs in almost every look in pastel hues, tulle, lace & silk; this collection epitomised Spring absolutely perfectly. From the appliqué gowns, to the sheer caped jackets and the bridal dresses closing the show, there was not one look I didn’t love! Thank you Luisa Beccaria & Lucilla Bonaccorsi.
From birds to stripes and a lot of colourful additions, the MSGM show was an interesting occasion, with designer Massimo Giorgetti inspired by Jonathan Franzen’s book ‘Freedom’, which was also spelled out on two looks and appliqué mixed up on more. Hues of blue, lime and orange made prominent appearances alongside staple and black with sheer overlays, clear but embroidered rain jackets and a lot of sequins & feathers.
White, tan, red, green and blue; they’re the colours that moved from one to the other in a beautiful transition at the Trussardi show to finish up Milan Fashion Week. Designer Gaia Trussardi did an amazing job with her collection that featured smart pieces, cardigans, suede and leather, with a retro cool sporty luxe vibe, which really does epitomize a Ready To Wear collection.
