After commenting day by day on Clubhouse the Fall Winter 2021 collections presented during the Milan Fashion Week by Camera Moda, it is time to list the top three best historical Italian brands. The 3rd place goes to Emilio Pucci. The creative team dusted off the immense archive, searching for the brand’s essence: prints and color blocking. A collection conceived as a capsule wardrobe for globe-trotters in the hope of traveling again soon. We jump from decade to decade to rediscover the splendor of Pucci with historic prints such as Cervinia, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Specchi, Clessidra, Nuages, and Nappine, in shades…
There is no summer edition of Pitti Uomo without the Polimoda fashion show: a coveted moment for every student of the prestigious Florentine institute, which marks the debut in the world of fashion at the end of a four-year training course, as well as the actual transition from the status of student to a professional designer. Compared to the canonical fashion show of twenty designers selected among the graduates in Fashion Design, this year the quality of the works was so high that the jury chose to present twenty-two collections of six outfits each. And being part of this list…
At the moment there are no victims in the clash between Dior and Valentino Spring Summer 2017 fashion shows. The War of the Roses between the former creative duo of Valentino ended with peace by both sides. On the one hand Maria Grazia Chiuri, strong woman, at the helm of Christian Dior; on the other, the pater familias Pierpaolo Piccioli, so sweet as determined, and now the only successor of Valentino Garavani.
The ugly truth of New York Fashion Week is that if you don’t want to get bored or to yawn in front of the runways you should only look at those key players in the fashion industry that in a few seasons gained a following even outside the circles of the European pseudo-intellectual journalists. Unfortunately the “old” big names of American fashion are just able to propose clothes with silhouettes inspired to the ’90s, covered with flowers or made with shiny fabrics that worst commentators and bloggers usually define as “dreamy”; but people are more interested in outsider designers, so: who are they?
On June 14th, Palazzo Strozzi in Florence became an hotbed of fashion talents thanks to Polimoda Fashion Show, the annual show organized during Pitti Uomo, that this time celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Institute. Director Danilo Venturi led a panel of contemporary fashion guru, including Suzy Menkes, Guram Gvasalia and Linda Loppa, who judged the best collection of 2016 among the 20 selected from the Fashion Design course.
Like it or not, his repetitive style, Karl Lagerfeld, by staging the last Chanel FW 2016 fashion show, made come true one of the most cherished dreams of those who attend this type of event. Especially journalists, bloggers, and influencers who would kill to occupy the front row of any fashion show. I’ll be more specific.
Milan is one of the world’s leading fashion capital and lately its fashion week is giving more space to new designers through several initiatives including the debut show at Armani Teatro: a sacred moment of the schedule dedicated to the new names of contemporary fashion selected by Giorgio Armani. This year was the turn of Japanese designer, Mitsuru Nishizaki and his Ujoh label, launched in 2009, after seven years as pattern maker at Yohji Yamamoto.
The beauty of chaos by Alessandro Michele for the Gucci FW 2016 collection opened the Milan Fashion Week. And for a year now, from the debut, his unusual style according to which “everything changes but nothing really changes”, has become a successful trademark that fascinates both the press and the market.
Once upon a time there was Math, a distinguished, rigid and severe lady, known as the mother of students’ nightmares from childhood to university. After revealing her secrets to philosophers and scholars, one day she met Mr. Escher, who made her the most funny woman of the world, providing a new look through upsetting optical illusions. Subsequently, she caught the attention of many artists, until when, intrigued by social media and fashion world, she decided to renew her wardrobe to get in touch with fashion victims. She sought help from famous couturier who proposed minimalist outfits inspired by modern and…
