Hong Kong Tatler - - Milan -

Cre­ative di­rec­tor Demna Gvasalia is syn­ony­mous with his street­based cult la­bel, Vete­ments. His off-kil­ter aes­thetic, rooted in sub­vert­ing no­tions of lux­ury and chic, sees him con­tin­u­ing to play with pro­por­tions and ma­te­ri­als for the high fash­ion house. Case in point: the asym­met­ri­cally fas­tened coats that opened the show. They ac­tu­ally un­but­ton into nor­mal coats with ex­tra vol­ume on one side, a nod to Cristóbal Ba­len­ci­aga’s sig­na­ture tai­lor­ing in the 1950s. Else­where, there were im­pec­ca­bly cut pen­cil skirts made from car mats, chic clutch bags fash­ioned from car wing mir­rors, and state­ment ear­rings re­pur­posed from dia­mante belt buck­les. But lest it all be­came too “street,” la­dy­like heels and good ol’ leop­ard print kept things clas­sic.
