Traditional femininity is making a comeback on the Milanese catwalks, along with the return of timeless classics that hit the mark without screaming ‘fashion,’ reports Angelo Flaccavento.
Marco De Vincenzo, Etro and Sportmax from day three of Milan Fashion Week.
The Italian designer will debut his menswear line at the Italian trade fair in June.
From enchanted gardens to brutalist hangars, locations can make or break a show.
In a world turning darker by the day, Etro, Sportmax, Marco de Vincenzo and Massimo Giorgetti all turned to forms of escapism — surfing, childhood memories and dreams — with varying degrees of success.
The designer embraced the offline world, a concept that made for an impactful collection that was true to his signature and his label’s newfound sense of ease.
The designer's work has been too ladylike in the past, but this collection reflected a welcome change in a softer direction.
This collection was one of Marco de Vincenzo’s best so far. Like Lagerfeld at Fendi he understands playfulness and class.
Though new voices bubbled under the surface, Milan Fashion Week hammered home repetitive brand ‘codes,’ raising questions about the purpose of staging fashion shows, says Angelo Flaccavento.
The realness of the collection felt fresh, but there were far too many ideas at work and this weakened the message.
With LVMH backing, the under-the-radar Italian designer is gearing up for growth.
A new generation of high-potential fashion labels is blossoming in Italy in spite of a fashion system they say has been slow to provide the support they needed to get off the ground.
