This season, the Milanese fashion shows shook up the preconceived ideas with sometimes unexpected, surprising proposals, contradicting the reputation of a fashion often perceived as bourgeois and not really permeable to societal evolutions. Italian fashion demonstrated brilliantly its ability to evolve, with the rise of new interesting expressions that challenge the big houses, themselves in search of disruption-in-continuity. A rather exciting season, therefore, that Carlin Creative invites you to discover:
The numerous and audacious Moncler’s collabs with cutting-edge designers have largely contributed to reinventing the skiwear context, which is becoming a fashion expression in its own right. No need to be a real sports brand to take these codes and turn them into a pop and color version. And far from snow…!
That’s it, checks. And not just a little, difficult to see even the tip of the nose of a stripe this season. This will not surprise anyone but checks are everywhere; they are worked on various fabrics, mats woolens or shiny silkies. And Italian designers know how to give them this little extra femininity…
The Italian houses master the art of outerwear ; trendy, chic and warm winter coats; well next winter it will be the satin parka with gleaming reflects. It can be treated with very neo-utilty references at Max Mara and Prada or in a more feminine interpretation at Ferragamo. When silk meets Nylon…
Let’s give back to Caesar what belongs to… Alessandro Michele: the Gucci phenomenon contaminates many Italian labels who express their traditional appetite for decor, patterns and colors by twisting them in a slightly strange way, Alice in Wonderland like. And don’t forget the offbeat accessory that editorializes the look!
FUTURE X BOUGEOISIE
So that’s really an Italian specialty, something that only Milanese designers know how to do: this intellectual upper-class fashion, both bourgeois and innovative, these vintage references transposed into a contemporary context, the expression of traditional know-how in the service of a renewed design.
It has sometimes been forgotten, but fashion is also festive and glamorous stuff, hedonistic and no-headache-please; so yes, we want lamé, glitter, colored metallic to ride these disco wave that’s obviously having a moment and resurrect the late 70’s – early 80’s clubwear spirit. Roses, mauves… and just shine on.
