Milan: Massimiliano Giornetti’s inspiration for this collection came from an exhibition at London’s Tate Britain about folk art. The result was an exquisite collection with a strong nature connection – outerwear and blazers featured flying bird motifs and dandelions, while other animals like owls, buffalos or zebras decorated knits and tailored garments. Models sported long and chunky scarves wrapped around the neck creating a dramatic effect throughout the lineup. There were many covetable pieces – blurred checks updated lumberjack coats and jackets, duffle-inspired cardigans came in white and camel tones and shearling trimmed leather outerwear presented a beautiful cracked and faded effect. The folk references were noticeable on crafted knits lined with leather stitching, distressed mohair jumpers, embroidered butterflies on blazers and zebra-like patchwork on overcoats. Giornetti brought some poetry to the season with this daring collection. The woodlands never looked so elegant. – Diego Sanchez
