Every dress is an inspiration, every inspiration a thought. Today and tomorrow we are going to present to you the most inspiring things we saw on the italian runways for Women’s Milan Fashion Week for fall 2015-2016, while waiting for the Paris shows and their trends. Here we present to you three of the main shows, Giorgio Armani, Prada and Gucci.
Short rebellious hair, tomboy attitude and a precise direction: Giorgio has taken a stance, and he’s with the strong women. “There is not more place for feminine and romantic feelings. Today we live in harsh times, especially for women: they want to be strong, aggressive and boyish. I believe in this fierceness.” And we believe in you, king Giorgio. With his new collection he looked back to the origins of the brand and tried to dress up this strong attitude. Solid and bold colors, dark tones and sharp accessories are the staples of Giorgio’s women of 2015/2016.
Prada’s models look just like a heavenly mixture of Laduree and space aliens – this is a beautiful and colorful collection that has a clear and young messag, with some 60’s vibes brought right up to date. It’s all about the combinations: the colours went from salmon pink to pea green, mustard and teal all in one look. Prada presents up a dreamy palette with attentive decoration and detail. The sheer prettiness of the pink empire-line dresses fell somewhere in between a Victorian ball and something a sweet sixteen, with combined hair jewels which super-size their way onto petal-shaped skirts, or floral brooches that peek from the shoulders. Pretty and bon ton handbags, gloves and Mary-Jane shoes add the finishing touch to a girly and fun collection.
Dolce & Gabbana
It’s not news that italian men love their mothers. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are no exception, and in the last years their most famous campaigns have pictured the perfect Famiglia seen through multiple generations. Today, their collection called Viva la Mamma is all about a celebration of motherhood and is dedicated to mothers of the world. The curtains opened to reveal a stage set with mothers dressed in black silk and lace slips each with their own children. As Spice Girls’ ‘Mama’ blasted out (and there our hearts melted), top model Bianca Balti walked out heavily pregnant: more toddlers then followed, dressed in matching mother-daughter combinations. The clothes were once again reflceting the signature Dolce & Gabbana style – Sicilian lace dresses, skirt suits, fit coats. The recurring motif was the red rose, which popped up in sequins on a white shift dress and was embroidered on black lace. One of our favorites for sure!
