To the land of materials,
Where artisans exist and play,
allowing the rawness of feelings to transpire.
Welcome to Milan Fashion Week!
It was clear that this season, Marni was thinking about proportion, silhouette and fabric. The collection was one of the easiest to get into this season – perhaps with thanks to Marni’s clear mindset for it. It was all there – the ideas, and then Marni went bold with it by taking size into consideration. Go bold or go home, they say.
And bold she did, with bigger-than-life pockets that sat around the hips and somehow looked aesthetically pleasing. (We, women, are worried about accentuating our hips too much but it’s fundamentally all about balance.) Marni got the formula perfect.
Dolce and Gabanna
A total of 91 looks. Usually, I am hesitant about such large collections (even 50 looks is pushing it) but I found much joy in the prints above everything else in this collection. Other looks were perhaps too referential and still needed some modern spark. A good edit was absolutely necessary as there were too many ideas going on but this is Dolce and Gabbana after all. When you’re being Sicilian and tropical, it’s all or nothing.
I loved this collection! It was young, colourful and free. Ruffles are hardly a new idea but believe me, the way it is executed is different every single time. The wavelength of the ruffles were just perfect. Uneven, poetic, sculptural. Followed by the A-lined silhouette, it was rather freeing and possibly MSGM’s best collection to date. The graphic element definitely catapulted the collection to success!
