Last year, we saw fashion week in the form of extolling collection as the ultimate in no-brainer outfits, designers seemed to be exhausting of them. There was versatility of separates on the runways every often. Today’s designers have been working too hard to make their creations that seem innovative, simple, fresh, and easy to wear. Even prominent designers like Victoria Beckham think twice before finalizing the combination; she says sorting out which bottom goes with which top can need quite a lot of analyzing.
After New York and London, here is Milan where designers have come up with a beautiful result in which costumes look like separates but are in fact well turned-out outfits. Looks like there is nothing impossible for designers; yes, the rigidity in creating the non-flexible dresses combined with tricky layering in order to make it look like separate pieces says all the efforts of designers.
The ingenuity of few multi-colored pieces is impressive; the designer Christopher Kane has created a simple looking mini dress with press studs and flaps that can be repositioned to make useful pockets. Another positive impact of all these designs is more compliant and lighter fabrics. D&G’s high waist-line skirts looked graceful, not heavy or bulky. Layers and lace worn over slip costumes at Moschino diffused the patterns and shades underneath. Agona’s reversible coats are lighter in weight than a baby’s scarf, yet luxurious. Luxury has become the latest sensation everywhere; Italian manufacturers are once again coming with their designers after the growth of Chinese manufacturers in the form of cashmere coats, raffia embroidery, and less wedge shoes; the skirt lengths are usually lowered alongside necklines, thigh, and cleavage.
Prada: The designer Miuccia Prada segued into sandal platforms, offering geisha shoes; she put Japanese inspired plastic flowers on majority of the designs, from school girl dresses, sunglasses, and furs to bags.
Etro: It displayed Grecian inspired one-shoulder gowns, city chic culotte’s suits, poncho handkerchief tops, Ibiza Town floaty dresses, and Indian party wear dresses. The floral prints worked well in Veronica Etro collections.
Moschino: It showed beehive, boxy shaped, metallic mini dresses and most of them are available in white and black shades. As usual, it featured beautifully made A-line, stripes, plastic flowers, trousers, and classic dresses.
Jai Sander: Ms. Sander has always brought minimalism to be unique and her sophistication simplicity has reached on the high street since 8 years in this fashion world. The simple tulip skirts, raglan sleeves, pinafore dresses, and loose jackets were quite impressive.
