Milan: MSGM by Massimo Giorgetti was shown in an industrial space lit with coloured neon strip lights setting the mood for a print-free offering inspired by Yarn bombing and the architect Anton Alvarez. Graphic re-interpretations of the labels signature stripes in varying vertical and horizontal widths adorned macs, shirts and tight jersey pieces. In addition, randomly pieced together striped panels reminiscent of digital movement worked best on a series of youthful crotched tops and sweaters. Mismatched chevrons joined the mix, as did an oversized madras check that looked very impressive on slouchy lounge trousers, shorts and a statement trench coat. The ease continued in voluminous side-snap trousers and roomy shorts cinched in with sashes and judo belts. Streamlined tailoring, eco-suede and gauzy shirt jackets with safari pockets topped the looks. Giorgetti continued the emerging Milan trend for summer darks with a pallete of autumnal shades of black, navy, oxblood, burnt orange, tan and browns with highlights of bright red and electric blue. – Tom Crisp
