Milan fashion week kicked off with great shows, among which Gucci, John Richmond, N°21 and Francesco Scognamiglio.
Francesco Scognamiglio presented a collection in which black leather was mixed with pretty much any other existing fabric, in a very costume and theatrical way, on lace dresses with black leather knee length skirts or all black weather fit form dresses. At the extreme opposite of this collection, N°21 showed out-of-bed like outfits that the models wore with messy-like hairstyle. Blue, pale pink or grey as well as pearled dresses, round bottom collarless shirts and clean straight lined blouses were presented during this collection.
As for the John Richmond show, the presentation was classically designed, going from daywear to nightwear, all of which in a utterly elegant, refined and chic way, in tones of white, grey and black, and using laces, velvet, organza and satin to enhance the women’s bodies.
Finally Gucci, the most expected show of the day, didn’t disappoint with their flower/feathers/velvet combinations in tones of emerald green, black and burgundy, that empowered a strong and elegant woman.
