One of favourite shows of Milano Fashion Week, which we unapologetically admit is our favourite week out of fashion month. Versace inspired the creation of Google Images when Jennifer Lopez took her iconic red carpet turn in Donatella Versace’s jungle-print dress. At the end of the show Donatella said, “Okay, Google, now show me the real jungle dress,” and out JLo glided in an even more naked version than the original, she was bronzed, buff and as gorgeous as ever. The collection was sexy with a late ’90s feel, with many black looks, embellishment including crystals and sequins.
Miuccia Prada said this collection is “about the power of women over clothing, and of style over fashion.” There was inspiration from the '20's, velvet, leather and embellishment.
Peter Pilotto switched from London to Milano Fashion Week to show a collection of styles that were draped, asymmetrical. There was a dominance of silk, the usual lurex, smudged floral prints and a little embellishment with crystals.
Jeremy Scott took inspiration from fine art for this collection especially Pablo Picasso's work. The collection was theatrical, fun, embellished and bright.
MM6 Maison Margiela
MM6 Maison Margiela showed an unconventional wedding party with the models walking with speakers playing music. There was a lot of white, tulle, layering and even veils.
The Giorgio Armani collection was a mixture of looks including ethereal, utilitarian and sporty. Silks, embroidery and crystal jewels along with draping were key.
The King of soft tailoring showed a collection that was laid back, graceful using soft colours. There was beautiful draping, layering and embellishment.
Max Mara took inspiration from the BBC TV series 'Killing Eve' to create this collection. At times we're sure we would all like to channel a little Villanelle. There was military inspired tailoring and accessories and draped silks.
Dolce e Gabbana
The theme of Dolce e Gabbana's show was the jungle, in fact as Gabbana clarified; “The Sicilian jungle.” There was safari inspired tailoring, then animal and tropical prints, leather, crystal embellishment and a LBDs galore which Gabbana explained was “Very DNA and a little bit ’90s—our archive.”
Alessandro Michele closed the Milan season with the Gucci show in style by conveying his models down a conveyor belt. Side split skirts were key, along with lace, bright pops of colour and many references to Gucci Orgasmique.
