MILAN FASHION WEEK A’W: DAY 7
The last day at Milan Fashion Week witnessed some of the finest craftsmanship that the fashion destination had to offer. From Armani’s sophisticated apparel, Mila Schon’s clean and minimalistic aesthetic to Fatima Val’s androgynous statements, the runway was flooded with trends and the variety it offered. Her’s a brief rundown of some of the shows showcased on Day 7 at Milan Fashion Week Autumn/Winter’2015-2016:
Giorgio Armani: The luxury brand known for its sleek, sophisticated and sharply tailored outfits delivered Italian finesse on the runway. The colour schemes comprised of shades of grey, navy-blue, black with pops of pastel blue and bright pink. The looks showcased were ideal for the corporate woman who dressed for power. Hair was neatly swept back and the looks were accessorized with a range of bags like clutches and double-flap handbags. A range of bottoms such as velvet high-waist pants, printed silk-chiffon pants and tapered trousers. The collection saw opulent use of wintry fabrics like fur and velvet. Sequins were embellished on jackets with peter-pan collars. The collection gradually moved on from sober shades to soft pastels as women glided in plunging sheer-chiffon gowns.
Mila Schon: The designer had a clean and minimalist approach with emphasis laid on cuts and silhouettes of the garments. The colour palette comprised of sober shades like white, black, grey and shades of blue. Stripes in black and white were showcased in a knee-length dress, Bermuda shorts and a floor-length dress. Linear prints made their way in a tailored jacket, a pencil skirt and an oversized fleece lined jacket. Outfits in shades of blue were also spotted towards the end in jumpsuits, ankle-length dresses and a matching top with regular-fit bottoms. The simplicity of the collection really shone through the collection.
Alberto Zambelli: The Italian designer incorporated quirky prints in subtle colours throughout the collection. Apart from neutrals, pastel shades in green, mauve and yellow added brightness to the sober collection. Inspired by nature, the designer used leaf motifs in a jumpsuit, a long top and floor-length skirt. Abstract prints in black and grey were seen in a plunging short-dress, matching jackets paired with a mini-skirt and high-waist loose pants. An abstract woman was featured in a pencil skirt and sheer tops. Zambelli created beige sheer-chiffon outfits with geometric prints covering the bare essentials. The looks were complemented with ankle-length leather boots.
Fatima Val: The collection showcased by the designer oozed edgy and androgynous appeal. Baggy and masculine silhouettes were shown with opulent use of wintry material like leather and shearling. Exotic fur was used in winter coats and was also found on sleeves and necklines of selective pieces. A range of garments were showcased in limited colours of black and red-orange. The current rage on the Autumn/Winter runways, the cape also made its presence felt. The looks were bold and rebellious as strands of hair covered their faces identically. The looks were accessorized with black leather boots.
