Milan Fashion Week Wrap



L to R: Jil Sander, Roberto Cavalli, Missoni, Pollini

Taking cues from New York designers, Milan Fashion Week sustained forms inspired by art and architecture. Jil Sander’s Raf Simons drew inspiration from mid-century French ceramicist, Pol Chambost, to mold his double-faced dresses and suits. Dresses from Roberto Cavalli, adopting futuristic forms, fell mid-thigh and were paired with over-the-knee boots that disappeared into the hemline (very similar to looks seen at Rodarte). Exaggerated layers were seen at Missoni with knit dresses layered over leggings, then draped with a scarf and topped off with a knit tube-like hood. Broad shoulders were one of the strongest themes that continued from city to city; Pollini’s glam jacket was similar to shapes presented by Marc Jacobs.

    A nice variation to see and several choices to pick from when it comes to shape. It’s going to be interesting to see how some of these shapes trickle down to the markets from the runway.

    Agreed–We have been seeing cowl necks for many seasons now, it will be nice to have perhaps an exaggerated hoodie or funnel neck.
