Go to Milan for a Women’s Fashion Week under the sign of renewal! Several things to note: Kim Jones at the artistic direction of Fendi, the 70 years of Max Mara & the second Prada collection by the duo Raf Simons & Miuccia Prada. If health news poses obstacles to the display of collections, Italian designers are showing great resilience through their collections. With a desire to appease & warm morals, Italian fashion undulates between timeless elegance & punchy practicality!
Iconic color of Italian fashion, camel has established itself as the spearhead of a chic and timeless silhouette. It returns each season, having proven itself and always referring to this distinguished elegance while casual ease. An aristocratic neutral to wear in an assumed monochrome panoply at Max Mara & Fendi or a refined two-tone version at MSGM.
YELLOW VITAMIN C
Great novelty for this season, accustomed to delicate neutral palettes in Milan, the insertion of vitamin C yellow, illuminates the collections in a sunny and dapper way. It warms up the usual beiges (Emilio Pucci), gray (Sunnei), brown (Sportmax) & black (JW Anderson) by dressing them with a necessary cheerfulness these days.
MINI BLACK DRESS
While loungewear has become king during the successive confinements, Italian designers are offering for winter 21-22 a return to chic and sexy assumed through the comeback of the little black dress. An emblematic piece of the feminine wardrobe, played now in a mini style (Dolce & Gabbana)! An uncompromising shortening, leaving bare legs free. Like Catherine Deneuve in “Belle de jour”, it sports a sophisticated white collar & is built in a tight-fitting way (Valentino & N ° 21). Another way to settle down!
While the micro-bag has been the essential it-bag for several seasons already, the regular trips back and forth between home and work because of teleworking, bring us face to face with the obvious: XXL volume are still very practical! (At least to carry his computer & a few files.) Not doing anything in half measures, the Italians dramatize the proportions and then take out the BIG bag (Marni, Prada & Sunnei) !!
If the hydro-alcoholic gel has become our best friend forever, it tends to cause many skin dryness. Hands disinfected but damaged, here we are ready to continue the course of our life … until the creative, far-sighted & judicious proposals of Italian stylists: the glove !! Inspired by the Hollywood movie of the 1930s, the glove extends to the elbows (MM6), thus protecting your hands in a safe & distinguished way. Little more, in practical / chic version, the pair of Prada gloves features the micro zipped pocket!
FAUX FUR LONG HAIR
As you know, a need for softness & comfort is felt as well now or later. Long-haired plush & faux-fur fabrics, whether played in a shaggy (marni) or skilfully combed way, will cuddle us. Accustomed to neutral colors (Fendi), the Italians are daring this time the vitaminized color (MSGM), to bring to our tired winter wardrobes a touch of peps and joviality!
