On day two, Milan Fashion Week had the following shows:
A structured, precious and, most of all, sartorial collection. Brocade coats, lame skirt and dresses, glencheck and oversize outerwear, are the key pieces for a glamourous and yet clean style. Lines are smooth, while collar shirts and turtle neck tops are the basis of the outfit.
The oversized jacket is the signature piece of this collection. Garments are overlapped, the fitting is smooth and the fabrics vary from tweed, wool, and nylon.
The palletes feature warm autumn colors in the first part, while colder colors are in the second part.
The collar pinstripe opening shirt is worthy of attention. The masculine lines are the leitmotiv of the collection.
The joyful attitude is the signature touch of this artist. Arbesser’s woman plays with prints – pinstripes, geometrics, and flowers. Colors are shiny and hairstyles are clean.
Arbesser’s woman winks to an informal femininity with oversized balloon sleeves, naked shoulders under mohair sweaters, hats to frame the face, and the ultra feminine boots. This designer attracts a woman who doesn’t feel the need to parade her femininity.
Forget the “less is more” style: this woman wants to be noticed in her outfits and the allure is theatrical. A bit Frankenstein and a bit oriental, this collection is the expression of dramatic, eccentric, and conflicting moods. The fabrics themselves reflect this endless search – shimmering flashes, multicolour fabrics, flowers, velvet, lace and tulle. The face is covered by hats and sunglasses or embellished with jewels and tulle chadors.
Annakiki takes her inspiration from space with aliens walking the runway. Shoulders are oversized, the outerwear is embellished with balloons, squared lines, ruffled design, and tulle details.
This collection is focused on the sleeves with rounded airy designs and embellished with furs, vinile and technical fabrics.
This collection recalls disco music of the 80’s. A lot of velvet, lame fabrics and brocade to enhance the garments.
Plums, rounded volumes, little studs over the hats, and black shirts with big shoulders along with necklaces are the master pieces on this catwalk.
Creative Director Alessandro Dall’Acqua takes his inspiration from the majorette with models wearing the typical hat but there is also a lot of a western vibe in this collection. Fringes over shoes, tops and bags, checks, little boleros, cow prints and amulets as necklaces. The body shape is always underlined by feminine lines and small volumes.
The cow print flats are the funny detail of the collection.
Angel Chen, a “unisex” designer with a Central Martins London degree who recently appared in Forbes’ list of “30 under 30” in the fashion industry, presented her collection for the second time.
This collection shows off pop and stylish accents mixed up with vibrant red, yellow, and electric blue.
The mood reflects the contemporary culture from the pop music with low-wasted gym pants, short sweaters, and oversized outerwear.
The ecofur jacket of the opening outfit and the fur details of the dresses give a stylish touch to the collection.
This collection by creative director Jeremy Scott looks a lot more weareable than the past ones without loosing his ironic vision of fashion. The inspiration is taken from the 70’s and a stellar mood and the colour is still a distinctive sign.
On the catwalk, a Jackie Kennedy reinterpreted in a contemporary way with a leather jacket over the midi skirt, zipped jackets, coloured outerwear and patent leather details.
The silhouette is enhanced by the belts, the skirt,s and the pencil line dresses.
Small chain or top handle bags, the patent leather pointed Mary Jane and the night dresses assembled as two pieces to create a flash design are the key pieces.
