Known to be at the top, Milan is the Italian city most involved in fashion, as much as in the international creative world.
These last days of February has been that of Milan Fashion week, to introduce the new fall-winter collections of the most appreciate Italian stylists but also that of the youngest ones.
Armani, Prada, Gucci, Dolce&Gabbana, Ferré, Moschino. Dark colours, and soft lines, to present the elegant look that always lives up to the Italian expectations.
Dolce&Gabbana declared, as line in style a voyage backward to Sicily, there they found new inspirations, gold and decorative textures managed together with elegance. Moschino is present with his smiling lines and favourite colours, from black to an almost fluorescent yellow.
Francesca Liberatore chooses light colours, mostly white tones, to hug the female bodies. Tomas Maier, Bottega Veneta, emphasizes the predominant black, to dress up a determined and forceful woman. For Giorgio Armani, grey tones mixed up with light passionate reds and issues from it.
But something special has been introduced for this Fashion Week, the launch of a special review between art and fashion. UnFlop, this is the name of the new paper magazine presented at the end of the Prada defile. Certainly the world of fashion is close to the art world, and certainly both are mixed in terms of inspirations and ambitions.
Now let’s wait for Paris Fashion Week to discover new dialogues between dresses, bodies and souls.
