2017 White Milano
Milan Fashion week is one of four major international fashion extravaganzas alongside Paris, London and New York.
The sartorial spectacle takes place twice a year, in September to signal the spring/summer styles and February to flag the autumn/winter collections. The runway features an assembly line of coveted designers, highlighting the new styles and hues of the incoming season.
This romantic city is Italy’s fashion capital and the world’s fashion compass.the February shows took an unexpected turn- instead of the
vibrant colours that usually grace the spring and summer seasons, this year’s couture was dominated by a more subdued palette of flatter, greyer tones. Gone were the embellishments and flamboyant patterns of previous seasons- yet the quiet grey shades still inspired creativity and passion. The restrained hues recalled a Florentine feel, the lonely tones stirring a retreat into a romantic reverie.
This mood of quiet luxury continued through the autumn/ winter collections, with layers of grey emulating a quintessentially British style.
The fickle fashion scene did feature a brief turn in style away from the expressive grey tones that dominated the show. Many designers spun the colour wheel on the runway with simple statement designs featuring carefully curated embellishments. The styles evoked touches of femininity alongside steadfast strength, the embodiment of the tenacious modern woman.
Ferragamo stole the spotlight with a reinvigoration of courtly style that speaks of romance, luxury and modernity.
A burst of colour graced the runway with canary yellow, emerald green, sapphire blue and ruby red, contrasting with the subtle grey tones. Statement pieces were stripped of adornments, with bold minimalism making a strong visual impact. This collection is for the powerful woman who relies solely on colour to make a splash.
Minimalism was key to the statement pieces of autumn/winter, with a striking accessory-free look, contrasting with the spring/summer collections that were a platform for colourful jewels to shine on the stage. Heavy pendants and thick metal chains caught the eye of show-goers.
莫斯其諾（Moschino）的環保設計讓人眼前一亮，設計師將對世界和平的渴望和生命的熱愛融入時尚，秋冬季設計更是融入環保概念。其創意總監 Jeremy Scott ，將紙箱和廢棄的舊雜誌搬上秀台，大片的拼貼來自時尚雜誌Vogue，外界評價， Scott 智慧的映射出，人們追求的其實就是時尚這座金字塔的Logo。
Moschino used the runway to raise awareness (and perhaps eyebrows) about environmental issues, featuring pieces made from upcycled materials. Creative director Jeremy Scott says the pieces have been made from “what people discard.” The show featured a parade of models wrapped in cardboard, a skirt fashioned from a shower curtain, gowns made of duct tape and rubbish bag frocks.
This year’s fashion show celebrated the evolution of woman, with sartorial splendour used to highlight feminine strength in a statement showcase.
