Milan: Alexis Martial’s collection for Iceberg felt particularly streamlined this season – his inspiration being the design of aeroplanes and all things aviation. Clean-cut lines and sharp yet sexy silhouettes glided down the runway, with an air of seventies explorer to them. Formfitting leather belts cinched the waists of pencil skirts and high waited trousers, worn with colour-block intarsia knitted sweaters and shearling aviation jackets – the blocks and patterns of color being a reference to airport landing strips. Leather pockets applied to outerwear felt utilitarian and contemporary, most noticeably on a tailored suit jacket in denim paired with skintight trousers. A birds-eye-view orchid print gave the collection a feminine edge printed on a turtleneck and on the inserts of a V-neck blouse. Sporty, sexy and fit for any adventure. – Anna Ross
