LA PERLA AT THE MILAN FASHION WEEK

"BRIDAL" COLLECTION FW 2019/20.

La Perla presented the debut a new made-to-measure bridal collection at the Milan showroom during MFW. The bridal collection consists of 18 handcrafted pieces designed by Alessandra Bertuzzi in the atelier in Bologna.

Founded in 1954 by the talented corsetry maker Ada Masotti, La Perla is renowned for creating expertly crafted lingerie and nightwear for the most memorable moments in a woman’s life. This season La Perla is proud to launch a range of bridal dresses to complement the brand’s longstanding bridal lingerie and nightwear collections.

La Perla’s foray into the world of bridalwear is a natural evolution for the brand and a chance to showcase how an intimate understanding of the female body can transform the way a woman looks and feels on her wedding day.

GUCCI AT THE MILAN FASHION WEEK.

FALL/WINTER 2019-2020 COLLECTION.

For his fall/winter 2019 Milan show, Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele pulled from his deep love of all things ancient and androgynous with a theme of otherworldly masks. As usual, Gucci spared no expense, even sending out invites to the show in the form of 3D plaster masks.

Michele aimed to reinvent the classic idea of a masked disguise as a means to find authenticity. “The mask, in fact, lets us show ourselves as we please and play our acting role as we think is best," wrote the brand in accompanying show notes. "It’s the possibility to choose how to exercise our freedom to show ourselves through a powerful filter that constantly selects what we want to share about us and what we want to conceal instead.”

ALANUI AT THE MILAN FASHION WEEK

FALL/WINTER 2019 COLLECTION

A fascinating Arctic escape. 

For the Fall/Winter 2019 season, Alanui embarks on an adventurous trip into the last great wilderness. 

A mix of magic and enchantment is injected into the collection, which celebrates life in frigid climes. 

The quintessentially feminine spirit of the collection is expressed with minimal slip dresses, which are presented both in warm alpaca and see through organza. 

Alanui is part of the new generation of fashion brands aware of the environmental issues and of the urgency of taking concrete action.

MARTINACELLA AT THE MILAN FASHION WEEK.

"SURV-LIVE" COLLECTION FW 2019/20.

Launched in 2015, Martinacella is characterized by simplicity and a fresh type of elegance that mixes wearability and comfort. The collections play with shapes, prints and elevated sportswear references, with a focus on hand crafted details and technical fabrics.

Born in 1992 in Tolmezzo, Martina grew up surrounded by the lush Italian countryside. Fascinated with the world of fashion since childhood, her favorite hobby was turning offcuts from fabrics spread all over the house, into unique dresses and accessories using just two tools: a needle and thread. After refining her technical skills at an art school specializing in fashion in Udine, Martina moved to Milan to master her techniques at Istituto Marangoni and launch her career as a fashion designer.

FENDI AT THE MILAN FASHION WEEK.

FALL/WINTER 2019-2020 COLLECTION .

It was the last collection that Karl Lagerfeld had designed for a brand he had shaped since 1965. Though much attention has been lavished on his work at Chanel, in many ways he was even more integral to Italian fashion, and everyone was there to honor his legacy.

According to Serge Brunschwig, Fendi’s chief executive, Mr. Lagerfeld had been working on the collection until the end.

It showed.

It was easy and entirely contemporary; built on heritage, dipping in and out of trend (sports, suits, the soup of decades past) but indebted to neither. It was smart, in every sense of the word.

EMILIO PUCCI AT THE MILAN FASHION WEEK

FALL/WINTER 2019 COLLECTION

Color and print are at the foundation of this Italian heritage brand. Both were well represented in the Fall/Winter 2019 collection at the Milan Fashion Week.  

The Emilio Pucci design team took a research trip to Japan before designing the label’s new Fall collection. The influences were there: the kimono sleeves on a printed chemisier, the landscape print picked out in embroidery on a long dress, the rain-slicked streets of neon-lit Tokyo in the metallic sequin plissé numbers backed by the house signature prints.

TIZIANO GUARDINI AT THE MILAN FASHION WEEK

FALL/WINTER 2019 COLLECTION

Green fabrics and animal motifs defined the designer’s F/W 2019 collection at the Milan Fashion Week. Italian designer Tiziano Guardini, the first ever recipient of the Franca Sozzani Green Carpet Challenge Award for best emerging designer in 2017, has found his aesthetic mandate in an all-around approach to sustainability.

In developing his fall lineup, the designer took inspiration from the vision of a woman of color strolling around New York’s streets and suddenly finding herself in the Bronx.

The collection was heavy on animal motifs rendered in primary colors – yellow, magenta, blue – on cocoon jacquard coats crafted from mulesing-free and regenerated wools. A leopard pattern in red stood out on the bottom half of a denim pantsuit. A roaring leopard appeared juxtaposed to lotus flowers on a range of loose crewnecks knitted with nylon yarns, which one could easily mistake for wool.
