Versace’s superwoman

In the last catwalk, Versace showed its army of superwomen. The maison presented a collection where not only the strength of women stood out, but their femininity.

Luxury sportswear was, one again, the main theme and ultra lightwear nylon was the star fabric. Among the different garments, outstood nylon anoraks, asymetric mini dresses, motocross trousers or zip-up sports tops with a retro style.

As color is concerned, green, purple, dark blue and black made their appearence in color-block garments and in chekerboard prints with spots of red and yellow.

Donatella highlited that her challenge for this season was to make unique and luxurious sportswear, what she considers is the future of fashion. Moreover she added that “This is a collection that is all about a woman’s freedom… freedom of activity, freedom to fight for their ideas, freedom to be whomever you want to be.”

NYFW and MFW review

New York Fashion Week started on September 7th, immediately after the London Fashion Week and then the Milan Fashion Week. The next week will take place the Paris Fashion Week. In all of the catwalks, the brands are launching their Spring-Sumer proposals for 2017.

Oscar de la Renta opted for all-white dresses and safari-inspired suites. Rodarte bets for monochromatic looks basically and mix lots of leather with laces and ruffles. Alexander Wang presented a line that easily could have been called ‘unisex’ where models wore shorts that resembled boxers, shirts that could have been borrowed of their boyfriend’s wardrobe and neon sweaters.

The line that offered Altuzarra played with different patterns; from cherries and lemons to python print. Proenza Shouler has bet for oversized T-shirts and leather jackets tied round waist to become skirts, all in primary colours. Jeremy Scott, faithful to its style, has incorporated geometric shapes to the dresses and as materials is concerned, leather and sequins. Black, white, khaki and denim were the proposals of Carolina Herrera.

Michael Kors launched his new watch alongside a collection inspired on the Sixties; oversized trench coats, floral prints and high heeled platform sandals. NYFW ended with the grand final show of Marc Jacobs, who opted for a line that every 20-somethig in the Nineties would have worn; rainbow-coloured dreadlocks, giant seven-inch platform boots, satin pants, micro suede skirts or silver snakeskin coats.

 

One of the first brands to catwalk on the Milan fashion Week was Gucci. Alessandro Michele chose recharged outfits for the next Spring-Summer season that in some cases reminded us to the Seventies but in other ones they were much more Victorian.  Leather was the innovating proposal for Alberta Ferreti and we saw it combined with purple skirts or in rodeo belts piled up around taffeta and chiffon dresses. Peter Dundas for Roberto Cavalli bet for hippie-chic outfits for those summer days –and nights- spent in Ibiza or Greece. MaxMara pointed to the jungle with frond-printed jumpsuits and sweaters with exotic wildlife, essentially in monochrome colours.

Fendi bets for girlish outfits that reminded us to Baby Dolls accessorised with pastel-coloured bags and the new bag bug: a furry doll with “string legs and stompy boots”.  The most remarkable about Prada were the fluffy ostrich feathers added to the garments. Jeremy Scott for Moschino played with the idea of paper dolls, a metaphor of the exaggerated consumerism society we are living in and of the industry of the see-now, buy-now. Moreover, the brand launched a capsule collection inspired on capsules and pills. Giamba presented little dresses and skirts all in vaporous fabrics and soft colours.

Donaella Versace thinks “Sportswear is the future of fashion” so she created a collection all about woman’s freedom where we could see nylon anoraks, zip-up sports tops, asymmetric mini dresses and motocross trousers, among other luxurious sportswear. Dolce&Gabbana reminded faithful to Italy and its symbols, making them shine through millennial influencers, but this time they focused on island life, like Capri, Pantelleria and -of course- Sicily.

Dsquared2 closed the Milan Fashion Week, another wonderful week full of new trends for the upcoming season and amazing Street Style.
