LESSONS De­sign­ers were feel­ing graphic this sea­son. To­mas Maier sent out capes and jack­ets in over­sized win­dow­pane checks at Bottega Veneta. At Fendi and Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo, we spot­ted tai­lored coats and bias-cut dresses alike cov­ered in pre­cise pan­els of colour. Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo Au­tumn/ Win­ter ’15

READY, SET, GO This sea­son, Dolce & Gab­bana left the Si­cil­ian sto­ries and fairy­tales be­hind. In­stead, with old-school Spice Girls on the sound­track, red vel­vet cur­tains parted to re­veal moth­ers, daugh­ters, and moth­ers-to-be walk­ing the run­way in their sig­na­ture glam­orous dresses. With pre­de­ces­sor Frida Gian­nini leav­ing ear­lier than ex­pected, Gucci’s new cre­ative di­rec­tor Alessan­dro Michele only had a

month to put a col­lec­tion to­gether. On top of that, he was

given the Her­culean task of re­viv­ing the brand af­ter years of

de­clin­ing sales and buzz. The for­mer re­mains to be seen, but in terms of the lat­ter, the brand has never been so heat­edly dis­cussed

in many sea­sons. Michele’s ro­man­tic, ec­cen­tric col­lec­tion of

clash­ing vintage prints and di­aphanous sil­hou­ettes was one of Fash­ion Week’s high­lights.
