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.
