When a show isn’t worth a post that much, but one specific look needs the spotlight. A small, commute-fit dispatch from Milan. Leave the big posts for the evening!
Agnona / I nearly forgot about the existence of this brand, when I suddenly spotted this one specific look. Its brilliance measures from the top to the bottom, from the knit’s fur back to the denim skirt-pants hybrid tacked in the boots.
Emilio Pucci / This is what you call a fringe. A fringed hat. And it’s green. Massimo Gioretti is mad this season at Pucci, but I quite like his vision of an aristocratic dame.
Max Mara / Red is hot and Max Mara gets the point this season.
Bottega Veneta / Eva Herzigova opened the show in this shoulder-pad top and luxe sweatpants as if she was the embodiment of power. Oh wait, she is.
Stella Jean / Known for her great love for everything ethnic, there was no wonder that Stella would sooner or later go for Slavic culture. From peasant shirts and hand-embroidered folklore skirts to fur vests and remastered ‘hammer and sickle’ t-shirt, that was a Mother Russia moment in Milan.
UNO. It’s how Stefano Pilati named his second collection for Agnona. The first one, ZERO COLLECTION, that was a ground collection, was just a good start for the new happy years that await Agnona with Pilati. UNO seems to be more complete- great evening wear, cool outerwear. The look-book is full of colours- violet, yellow and blue flowed through the river of black. Everything looks easy to go, without any… say, “wear it till you die”. Because that was Agnona like few years ago! The Italian label that was famous for great wool sweaters, had a few year depression in its sales. But now with ex-YSL designer, Stefano, the brand seem to come back to life. Just like Tod’s. And this is great that Italian labels have their renaissance time- the best quality clothing is going to arrive soon again! My favourite pieces from Agnona AW14? Definitely that melange coat. And those sculptural gowns!
