MARNI FALL WINTER 2018 WOMEN’S COLLECTION – MILAN FASHION WEEK

Marni Woman Fashion Show FW 2018 Milan
Marni Fashion Show FW 2018

 

Elementary. The ancestral and the futuristic, joined like siamese twins. Regaining a state of primitive bliss, using technologic means.

Basic, raw, immediate. Constructing pieces around the body, elementarily. Folding, slicing, nipping. Wrapping instead of buttoning. The coat, the jacket and the dress, reduced to the primary line, moving away from the hips, marking the waist, forging the archetype.

Urges that drive mankind. Changing skin as a vital need and a lively force. Using clothes to transform appearance and environment. The act of dressing and adorning as a way to affirm the self, preserve oneself and attract the others, gathering a tribe.

Horizontal, vertical, square angles. Elementary rhythm of elementary movements. Stripes that run, blankets assembled into capes, folds that wrap.

I, we and an army of me: a camouflage of faces. The individual and the collective. Being one and safety in numbers. A plurality of women, sending out vitalistic messages, collecting and assembling signs of the evolution of the species: feathers fluttering from the ears, coins inflating and decorating, ropes dangling.

Elementary urges. Undressing to seduce, covering up to shield and protect, unraveling to express extraordinary desire. The sensuality of a silky movement. Eyes of a cat hypnotizing and attracting, allover.

Fusing halves together. Dresses and coats, embracing their brotherly alter ego. The sensuality of a siamese union, and its feline undertones. Differences that empower, by pointing in the same direction.

Harmony of clashes: done/undone; languid/assertive; natural/synthetic. PVC and radzmire, polyester and leather, a riot of brights and naturals. Opposition as the energy of life itself, ruled by universal magnetism. Elementary.

EMILIO PUCCI FALL WINTER 2018 WOMEN’S COLLECTION – MILAN FASHION WEEK

Emilio Pucci Fashion Show FW 2018 Milan
Emilio Pucci Fashion Show FW 2018

 

Emilio Pucci’s own ties with America – his love for sportswear and a groundbreaking lingerie deal dating back to the Fifties – inspire a glitzy detour across ideas of femininity. The jet set aura and the sporty spirit are mixed and glamorously mingled.

The silhouette is shapely and curvaceous or elongated and dynamic, with voluminous duvets, roomy melton duffels and luxuriously utilitarian double-face coats offering function and protection.

Marylin Monroe’s archetypal charm: nipped waists, big skirts reminiscent of hand painted Pucci classics or languid slips and intarsia camisoles. Cropped knits tops further highlight the womanly shapes. Quilting is a cozy mountain touch that runs up to the toque hats, gaining a sophisticated air.

The private becomes public: underpinnings turn into dresses, as Diana Vreeland suggested looking at Emilio’s artfully printed slips.

The alluring and the sporty, continuously mixed: silk jersey pieces and lace details. Pucci solids on long silk jersey dresses as favored by Marilyn, embellished by few pieces of extraordinary jewelry culled from the Bulgari archives further underline the jet set aura of the American trip.

A beautifying palette of make-up box powdery tones. Soft pinks, blues, greys and dusty pastels are highlighted by the sfumato Mirage prints. Purples and greens combine with taupe in the Tulipani and Trifoglio archive prints. The Emilio Pucci logo follows as a happy mix.

Sophistication meets function in the accessories: minimal leather shopping bags, both in print and solids, with plexiglass handles; oversized pockets go from skirts to bags. Neoprene lace-ups with kitten keels, patent boots.

Glamour gets to the fore, with the quintessential Pucci ease.

VERSACE FALL WINTER 2018 WOMEN’S COLLECTION – MILAN FASHION WEEK

Versace Fashion Show FW 2018 Milan
Versace Fashion Show FW 2018

 

THE CLANS OF VERSACE

“The Clans of Versace know that today nothing is acquired through birth, but rather earned through what they achieve: this is why these women are all Queens to me.”
Donatella Versace

United through passion and a desire to rock all boundaries, the Clans of Versace are crowned as the true modern royalty. Daring to speak their mind and standing out from the crowd through their style choice, they rule their own life and always look out for each other. Women who aren’t afraid to walk their own walk, and talk their talk, never forgetting that they were born to be bold.

Strong. Loud. Confident. There are no mid-ways. No compromises. A clash of cultures that generates friction and contrast between past and present – old and new, trendy and subculture, sneakers and stilettos. Different clans are represented by their print of choice. All played out on the Versace Fall Winter 2018 catwalk.

THE CLAN OF COLOR
Never safe. Never obvious. An explosion of personality. The Versace way is always innovative, with a plethora of colors and prints that are not afraid to Mix and Clash.

THE CLAN OF UNITY
Family always comes first. Versace women stand together, rooting for their cause in unity. Soccer-style scarf fringe inserts on dresses give the right amount of ‘look-at-me’ sass to evening wear. Groups of tartans are mixed together in a seemingly random manner, representing the clash of subcultures. Prints named after ‘the greater Versace family’ pay tribute to kinship. A celebration of the deep bond between each member of this royal family, where diversity and inclusivity reign.

THE CLAN OF THE PRESENT
Sneaker geeks keep one eye on the past, one on the future, with their feet firmly gripping the present. They live for today. Now matters most. The insta moment is everything. They create a Chain Reaction with a ripple effect. Some people are born royal. Some become Queens on their own.

FENDI FALL WINTER 2018 WOMEN’S COLLECTION – MILAN FASHION WEEK

Fendi Fashion Show FW 2018 Milan
Fendi Fashion Show FW 2018

 

For a romantic uniform in a woman’s world, the Fall/Winter 2018-19 Collection is a mirror of softness and strength. The lines of architecture are intertwined with wistful notions of urban femininity with an outdoor edge, in a palette of navy, black, moss green, camel, claret, ivory and blushing pink.

A box shoulder creates a framework for capes -shoulder slips- and belted coats that fall with a planed sleeve, zipping open at the hip in a cascade of sunray pleating. Trompe l’oeil yoke details create delicate hybrids within a single garment. Tailoring fabrics define the city attitude of slim coats and skirt suits in Prince of Wales checks, grisaille wool and glazed canvas.

Pondering the simple elegance of a lady’s handkerchief, pleated silk dresses and scalloped blouses are adorned with needlepoint collars and encrusted lace. The diamond becomes a leitmotif in print, texture and construction, from FENDI argyle knitwear to plush intarsias and a dramatic latticework of beaded fringes. In bright pebbled calfskin, stamped leather or satin, pointed Western boots rise to mid-calf or knee length featuring a double Cuban heel.

This Collection sees the debut of the Double F bag, a two-sided chain bag featuring ‘F’ corner frames on one side, and the round FENDI stamp on the other. A new unstructured Peekaboo X-Lite bag is defined by a soft construction and contrasting internal pocket popping in precious leather, pastel calfskin or iconic FF.

The Women’s Fall/Winter 2018-19 Collection includes the FENDI/FILA logo created by the artist @hey_reilly, re-appropriated by the House across ready-to-wear and accessories.

MAX MARA FALL WINTER 2018 WOMEN’S COLLECTION – MILAN FASHION WEEK

Max Mara Fashion Show FW 2018 Milan
Max Mara Fashion Show FW 2018

 

Culture and counterculture; icons and iconoclasts; trophies and tropes; meanings and messages that time turns on their heads. Back in the day, Max Mara devised a code for women on the move. So called power dressing offered the keys to the executive suite. The price was strict conformity; self-expression wasn’t part of the deal for Working Girl.

Twenty or thirty oors below, in shadowy subterranean nightclubs, the style tribes’ studs, straps and chains signi ed a point blank repudiation of the corporate grind. You were one thing or the other. Forty years on, things have changed, barriers smashed, boundaries blurred.

Now, the Max Mara woman demands success on her own terms and dresses accordingly. Her don’t-mess-with-me coat and those tough looking leather suspenders hanging from her waistband are a declaration that our heroine is in a determined and de ant mood. Max Mara says classic doesn’t have to be conservative, especially when it’s served up with feline attitude, a little gothic grit and a big splash of bombshell glamour.

Everything is rede ned; tailored Teddies and voluptuous drapes; leopard spots and Prince-de-Galles; fringes and shtails; duffel coats and diamante; maverick camel and radical pink. Max Mara works the dialectic to generate a smouldering energy. Spotlight on punk queens Siouxsie and Sinead as they take the stage in a late night downtown cabaret.

Max Mara’s chanteuses wear mean looking stilettoes, catlike eyewear and a new take on the handbag to wear diva style. T-shirts featuring graphics dedicated to Max Mara by the legendary artist François Berthoud celebrate the imagi- nary gig. Luxury is a lazy word, used to lump together everything with a little practical purpose.

Max Mara merits a more precise de nition, after all, these are clothes with a purpose -to empower. And how can an item of clothing empower? Just watch a woman slip into a Max Mara coat; she feels like a star, she can conquer the world. That hasn’t changed since the brand began the long march with the working woman.

Year on year, it’s Max Mara’s job to recalibrate the can- ons of style to sync with “l’air du temps”; for 2018 Max Mara proposes a chic new mix that’s one part boardroom exec, one part husky songbird, and one part screen siren.

MOSCHINO FALL WINTER 2018 WOMEN’S COLLECTION – MILAN FASHION WEEK

Moschino Fashion Show FW 2018 Milan
Moschino Fashion Show FW 2018

 

Stars from the Stars

This season at Moschino Jeremy Scott ventures deep into Area 51 territory to concoct a collection that puts conspiracy theory into fashion practice. What if extra-terrestrials really did walk among us? What if Marilyn Monroe really was knocked off by the feds to stop her spilling the beans about her Roswell pillow talk with JFK?? And – deep breath – wasn’t Jackie O too perfect to be human???

The parallel narratives of the paranoid are deployed by Scott to create a collection that’s so real it’s unreal. Our first contact comes via a series of out of this world dresses and separates that mix just so mid-century daywear with the cut and zippers of the iconic Moschino biker jacket.

The colors are pumped: Scott ventured beyond the realms of Pantone this season to discover powerful shades that have fallen into disuse. Some looks feature wide vertical stripes, others touches of leather, and yet other sports-touched looks come in a three colorway, cracked zig-zag brocade. A Moschino foulard print is twisted with polka-pixels. We see Venus in faux furs. Everything’s matchy-matchy. She’s fabulous – and she’s not from around here.

Further frazzle is delivered thanks to this season’s capsule collection, a collaboration with the awesome Australian artist Ben Frost. His hyper-stylised images of feminine ‘perfection’ collaged with the packaging of the products with which we self-medicate in this consumer age work perfectly on cute handbags, gamine dresses, to-die-for phone cases and more – buy ‘em now!

The daywear has landed – we orbit to night. We see a series of siren dresses and tuxedos that come slashed, chopped, hybridised and collided and mix metallics and sequins, crystals and silks. They combine goddess gathering from the first great age of Old Hollywood glamour with a hot-pink hello to Marilyn Monroe plus looks from a later, more empowered age – as if some new arrival had processed the humanity’s entire red-carpet history at hyperspeed then materialised the best of it all together.

These are looks fit for a star from the stars. Plan Nine from outer space. The Truth? It’s Out There! Believe.

ALBERTA FERRETTI FALL WINTER 2018 WOMEN’S COLLECTION – MILAN FASHION WEEK

Alberta Ferretti Fashion Show FW 2018 Milan
Alberta Ferretti Fashion Show FW 2018

 

The Alberta Ferretti Fall/Winter 2018 collection depicts an edgier woman, one that has more character, along with more style. This collection proposes a contemporary and decisive interpretation of daywear, that enhanced with personal styling, is capable of transitioning from day to night. These are bold silhouettes with statement shoulders that emphasize a new twist to the Alberta Ferretti’s aesthetic. 
 
«Through my designs, I wanted to highlight character affirmation. I imagined a confident and assertive woman. For this reason, I have decided to include my friend Lorenzo Quinn’s sculpture “Gravity” as a focal point of the runway, a masterpiece that places the woman at the center of the Universe, which for me, is a metaphor of reality,» declares Alberta Ferretti.
 
Dynamic but not tied to trends, the collection exudes confident ability in mixing textiles such as denim with feathers as well as adding flashes of gold light through fabrics, sculpted jewels or metallic belts. Daywear includes coats, skirts, and leather capes lined with wool or jersey and paired with black denim jumpsuits. Jackets are reinterpreted in jacquard fabrics.

The transition from daywear to evening wear is characterized by vibrant gold and silver sequins seen also on the T-shirts and skirts. Simple silhouettes and embellished details come together to create a goddess gown sprinkled in crystals. Her muses are seen in high heeled boots and sandals made from colored silk cords, enriched with small tassels.
 
A collection that paints Alberta Ferretti’s new woman; she is decisive, strong, and aesthetically impactful.
 
«I want to bring justice to women by respecting their natural elegance,» concludes Alberta Ferretti.

N°21 FALL WINTER 2018 WOMEN’S COLLECTION – MILAN FASHION WEEK

N°21 Fashion Show FW 2018 Milan
N°21 Fashion Show FW 2018

 

MAJORETTE

Majorette. The title of the N° 21 fall/winter 2018-19 collection comes from the professional figure of a young woman who, in a cross between sport and spectacle, makes a pattern of movements with a baton, by turning it and throwing it into the air, usually within the context of a group exhibition. Once the show is over, the majorette takes off her uniform and returns to her daily routine.

Creative director. Alessandro dell’Acqua, N° 21 creative director, comments: «Starting out from an after- dark idea of fun, festive situations, I found in the majorette an embodiment of the incongruity between a common, working-class type of public entertainment and the spontaneous expression of an unconscious, off-the-cuff glamour that’s all the same authentic, uniquely personal. What I had in mind is a woman who – while no diva, no vamp, no star – knows how to dazzle in her everyday life. This enabled me to develop many aspects of today’s fashion that seem contradictory: as in, brightness and dark spirit, glamour and glam punk, as well as my ever-favorite masculine/feminine mix. Last but not least, it enabled me to get back the joy I take in a fashion that I’d like to become once again an expression of research, first and foremost.»

Luminosity. The neon signs of Las Vegas casinos make a splash on dresses, skirts, coats, jackets that all feature a shiny-sequin-studded wool/leather/leopard mix where black portrays the inkiness of wet asphalt and colors mimic the dazzling effects of bright lights. Likewise, gold inserts illuminate both the ponyskin parkas worn over short floral slip-dresses and the gold- or silver-fringed-sleeve shirts in mannish checks worn with lace sideband pants. Equally bright are the mannish outfits with crystal-trimmed jackets, pants and cabans; and the maxi sequin-fringed mohair cardigans, over tartan plaid chiffon dresses, under tulle slip-dresses with allover crystal embroidery.

Glamour. An element finding redefinition in fresh contemporary form, it highlights the mannish quality of sequin-embroidered sweaters and gilet vests, and of kid mohair pants, to create newly alluring images through long colored gloves and through ponyskin coats under wider camel tone wool ones. Similarly, the new glam uses lace dresses, gold brocade slip-dresses and sequined straight skirts as the ideal bases for mannish jackets.

Fringe. «An element expressing joy, for me it’s a first. I used fringe to design a collection that, in addition to focusing on the product, went back to taking a stance on fashion,» says Alessandro dell’Acqua.

Lolita. This is the name of the colorful new leather N° 21 bag, complete with big leather fringe pom-pom that will become its trademark.

Accessories. Shoes: crystal- and bow-studded medium heel pumps, satin crystal-trimmed creepers, leather or spotted ponyskin creepers, gold tone-soled sneakers. Bags: sequin-fringed shoulder bags in big and small sizes, large tote bags with long fringe. Necklaces with whistle pendant. Keychains with leopard print case. Eyewear, as ever in partnership with Linda Farrow, featuring crystal-studded frames.

BURBERRY FEBRUARY 2018 COLLECTION – LONDON FASHION WEEK

Burberry February 2018 Collection Look 1 London Fashion Week

 

‘TIME’ REFLECTING THE PAST, CELEBRATING THE PRESENT, HERALDING THE FUTURE

Burberry tonight celebrated ‘Time’, Christopher Bailey’s final collection for the brand, against a multisensory installation that forms part of a new collaboration with United Visual Artists (UVA).

‘Our Time’, a piece of work on loan from the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Australia, investigates the subjective experience of the passing of time through movement, light and sound, and was reimagined in collaboration with Christopher, to provide the backdrop to the runway collection. The installation’s pendulums swung to their own rhythm in time to the show’s soundtrack by Jimmy Somerville, The Communards and Bronski Beat.

Models including past and present campaign stars Adwoa Aboah, Jean Campbell, Montell Martin and Edie Campbell – who appeared in her first Burberry campaign in 2006 – revealed the collection, which revisited past icons and house codes, including the trench coat, the aviator, the cape, the poncho and the military coat as well as introduced new designs.

The Rainbow check, the latest iteration of Burberry’s most iconic symbol and designed as part of Christopher’s dedication of his last collection to LGBTQ+ communities, featured throughout the show. A capsule of reissued archive pieces from the 1980s and 1990s rereleased as part of this collection is now available for immediate purchase.

Cara Delevingne, discovered by Christopher and Burberry over seven years ago, closed the show and led the finale as models walked under a spectrum of rainbow laser lights.

‘My final collection here at Burberry is dedicated to – and in support of – some of the best and brightest organisations supporting LGBTQ+ youth around the world. There has never been a more important time to say that in our diversity lies our strength, and our creativity.’

Christopher Bailey, Burberry President and Chief Creative Officer
