The third fashion Week of the “Big Four” is over. What do you remember about this event? What shows were the best?
Recently, the Fashion house Gucci was on the rumor: an advertising campaign with Jared Leto and Lana del Rey, a racist scandal with a blackface sweater. So critics followed every outfit in the collection closely. Models’ faces were hidden under masks. Alessandro Micheli invested in this specific sense: "The mask is simultaneously full and empty. On the one hand, it hides your personality, and on the other hand, it attracts attention to it. Masks can be constantly to change and not give someone look to you in soul. Micheli is clearly tired of the excesses: the outfits of this season were very concise, and every thing self-sufficient. The designer returned to the aesthetics of the 70-80s, which was important for the brand: broad shoulders, corduroy suits, lace and blouses with bows.
Creative Director of Max Mara Ian Griffiths made the coat a key thing in the collection. "A coat is a thing with which you have an extremely strong emotional connection. It becomes your uniform, associated with you," he shared. The whole show was divided into color blocks: first on the podium there were models in bright yellow and blue outfits, after ― in caramel and chocolate.
Jeremy Scott is a true professional in pop culture and bright shows. The entire show was held in the form of the famous TV show The Price Is Right, which first appeared on the screens in 1972 and is still on air. The meaning of this game is to guess a more accurate price of the goods shown. The winner receives prizes. Hyper-volume hairstyles, catchy makeup, an abundance of metal parts, dresses with dollar print ― all clothes from Jeremy Scott evokes emotions.
This collection from Fendi was the most expected at Milan fashion Week, because it is the last work of Karl Lagerfeld, who died on February 19. Sylvia Venturini Fendi says that right before his death, he called her and said he wanted to add bows, and his will, of course, fulfilled.
The participants of the show were drooping, because all to the last hoped that Carl will be able to attend.
The collection itself looked extremely optimistic: bright colors, feminine sexy silhouettes, neat layering and a lot of details, to which Carl was always attentive.
Dolce & Gabbana
Designers adhere to the traditions, and at the show in Milan, they demonstrated the classics and luxury with elements of surrealism. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showed 127 outfits, which were divided into thematic blocks: Taylor, things in linen style, models with floral, leopard and baroque print, in a costume cage, in sequins, dresses embroidered with precious stones, as well as lines of evening and wedding dresses. A lot of gold, red velvet and Noir atmosphere ― all this helps us to understand the brand's handwriting.
