Best of Milan Fashion Week, spotted and selected by Elisabeth Prat, Fashion Director at Peclers Paris.
The Milan Fashion Week runway shows often showcase Italy’s historical craftsmanship. This season, they are refreshed with extraordinary touches of lightness and transparency.
Tribute is paid to the creators of the houses who may be less in the spotlight but work with seriousness and without ostentation. Among them, Walter Chiapponi, who, at his last show at Tod’s, sported a T-shirt with a philosophical message: “The essential is invisible to the naked eye.”
In line with this simplicity that is unmistakably taking hold in all the fashion weeks this season, Sabato de Sarno is making a clean slate at Gucci.
At Prada, there is an appreciation for the “tough” aspect of workwear and tailoring-inspired pieces. Miuccia Prada stated: “I’ve had enough of talking about ideas, let’s talk about clothes. Craftsmanship isn’t a topic that’s often discussed at Prada. We wanted to show what we could do.”
At N21, Alessandro Dell’Acqua drew inspiration from the bold and sensual exuberance of his hometown, Naples.
At Bally, we witnessed a refreshing transformation of the brand with a balanced blend of sophistication and charm, offering a straightforward range of precise and accessible silhouettes in Simone Bellotti’s debut collection.
At Tod’s, the latest runway show by Walter Schiapponi highlights Italian craftsmanship, known as “Fabbrica” with a minimalist approach infused with a sense of gentleness, showcasing leatherwork and tailoring.
At Gucci, breaking away from the seven years of eccentricity under Alessandro Michele, Sabato de Sarno has chosen a radical simplicity.
