TRAD ON ICE
Milan: Frida Giannini showed a collection full of traditional elements like glen plaid suits and bomber jackets, all updated with icy colors and an aggressive, mysterious cool. Black, iced blue, and cool white were everywhere, turning down the temperature on wintry items like chunky sweaters, cable-knit turtlenecks and glen plaid suits. The designer intrigued attendees by layering smooth leather jackets under long, crisp, felt military jackets, while allowing hints of cranberry, wine, persimmon and mustard to add fall flair to leather pea coats, marled wool blazers, and fur-lined bomber jackets. Ultimately, the collection felt cold and creepily goth, with warm, fuzzy fall colors adding balance, and while classic, wearable items helped maintain a firm grounding. —Andrew Luecke
