Reality is not what it seems, in Moschino crazy world. the catwalk of Jeremy Scott is a play of paper dolls, in which every look is made in a trompe l’oeil effect, you can’t say if it’s fiction or reality. Silhouette printed in lingerie, chains, polka dots, corsets. Biker and denim. Fake hands out from a trench and evening dresses with printed strass and giant bows. Was it a tricky dream? For sure commercial. And the drug bags, inspired by american flacon pills, will be big hit.
Gigi Hadid was the star at Versace. we’re not underestimaning the comeback of Naomi Campbell of course. But it’s Instagram queen Gigi the icon today. And the perfect testimonial for Donatella Versace luxury sportswear. A super active collection, Olympics inspired, very high-tech, from green to red to blue. “Sportswear is the future, should be comfortable and glamoured” said Donatella at the end of the show. Tennis superchampion Serena Williams was in front row.
Marco De Vincenzo is Milan new rising star. He’s a talent out of time and definitions, in constant evolution, contemporary yet classic. Young and mature at the same time. He showed a collection build on crossing chromatism, one brilliant and one nocturned, like an up and down traveling. It’s geometric in coats and dresses as well as decorated in silk, patchworks and jacquards.
Twins Dean and Dan Caten brought the usual joyness and party mood on the dancefloor. DSquared2 is downtown meets uptown in the 80s. Superglamour for the disco, with animalier minidresses, low waist broken denim, sparkling paillettes all over. And deluxe accessories as eyes and lips-shaped pins or disco-bags.
A double celebration at Bottega Veneta. 50th anniversary of the historical italian brand and 15th of Tomas Maier as creative director. In the prestigious venue of Accademia di Brera, Maier showed mens and womens together. Natural choice for a subtling luxury brand, made of perfect manifacturing and artisanal skills.
