Milan: Designer Consuelo Castiglione, known for her sophisticated and forward-thinking designs has once again charmed the international fashion circle with her S/S17 collection. A gently distorted and monochrome silhouette featured oversized cargo pockets and blown up sleeves, while drawcords, transformed the guise of softly draped dresses into asymmetric silhouettes, yet each piece felt perfectly controlled. Layered, twisted and turned details pervaded as key elements throughout the line-up while pliced skirts and slouchy drawstring bags came wrapped around the waist. Shades of white and cream along with pops of red, hues of green, blue and dusted pastels in monochromatic silhouettes turned into beautifully distorted micro prints and melting sparkling embroidery adding a new dimension to the expression of soft pleating, folding and gathering. – Christa Kaufmann
