It’s not the first time when I admit that Italians do it better, in case cuisine, and their craftsmanship in fashion. Since Milan fashion week is getting better and better each season with exciting designers like Massimo Giorgetti, Alessandro Dell’AcQua, Stella Jean and Alesssandro Michele, the rivalry is strong – but Francesco Scognamiglio wins my heart with his spring-summer 2016 outing, which was all about dreamy, sheer dresses. The delicate lace details and ruffled sleeves of these flawless gowns are mesmerising. Magdalena Frackowiak, Aya Jones and Peyton Knight looked like angels wearing those sensual, white silhouettes… and if talking of Francesco, a big deal is coming up – during the upcoming haute couture week in Paris, the designer will present his first ever couture collection! So we can all expect an excessive dose of modern fairy-tale looks and one-of-a-kind pieces.
Jacquemus launches denim, together with his on-line store. The Jean Blanc breaks the system – its over-sized fit is everything.
The music was so bad, that Anna Wintour run away in the middle of the show, screaming “horrible fashion”. Well. Half that’s true. The music certainly was bad, and the clothes were also not really good… Raf Simons continues the same idea as during his last couture- to show history of fashion changing throughout one show. First we had medival gowns, pilgrim caftans. Then, lady-like skirt-and-tops. At the end, cosmic jumpsuits. Mostly all-white collection, with few drops of red velvet and blue tulle, felt for me not so good. It kind of didn’t have this thing that Raf usually brings to Dior. This modernity of past or how he calls it, starts to be boring. And I still can’t forgive the shoes. They looked to heavy, and destroyed nearly all looks. I don’t want to hate, but this thing doesn’t work on me. Hope Dior is not falling down again…
A total yawn. Public School, you guys feel like too conservative. Again those black / white pieces? Not everybody likes wearing winter clothes in summer. Even that white confetti which looked like snow felt a bit out of the topic. The clothes (tailored t-shirts, sweatpants, over-sized blazers) look good, but we see them already the third season. The designer of PS surely can boast about their big fashion awards this year, but unforunately, this shot isn’t the one to talk about.
Designers Remix is all about a treasured Danish vibe and Charlotte Eskildsen’s desire to create feminine and characteristic designs to beautiful, sophisticated and positive women, who dare to be different. For SS15, Charlotte Eskiden showed us girls, that reminded of the famous “Girl with Milk” painting by Jan Vermeer. With typical white head-covers, the mostly white outfits looked serene with all the delicate fabrics and comfortable shapes. Designers Remix continues on the path between femininity and androgynous tailoring, creating an interesting fusion. In my opinion, the sandals and the closing dress stole the spotlight during the show. Eskildsen made a neat and girlie collection which seriously ready-to-wear (and affordable).
