Another day gone and another row of incredible Italian designers are coming up to impress us with their S/S14 collections: The most anticipated of day 3 had got to be Gucci:
Gucci creative director Frida Giannini brings a spring-kick with her floral collection.
Completely made to fit the spring/summer season, Giannini creates and mixes formal wear with casual wear. Sneakers, floral leggings, leather backpacks are only a few elements that made such a collection a success.
Colourful tailoring is also available here and there to break the collection up a little and give an ample decision for all the fashionistas and Gucci enthusiasts out there. I personally have a soft-spot for small details and flowers, and this S/S show really did it for me, Well done Frida!!
Colossus brand Emporio Armani takes a minimal turn, the collection isn’t overly embellished, clean cut and clean colours are found throughout. The colour palette ranges from navy blue to beige sand creating a very mature and manly visual experience. The key pieces go from bomber jackets, peacoats, tailoring and cardigans. easy-Zips and buttons seem to be simple and straight-forward to achieve the clean-cut finish.
Moncler Gamme Bleu surprised us with a collection totally inspired on cricket, from head to toe the models wear cricket gear mixed with white high quality clothes – Trenches, sport coats and low-v necks – with the sporty-vibe. American designer Thom Browne puts on a very dramatic show with the models having black painted lips and holding paddles and mallets, drama meets fashion! The fabric of the garments looks ultra-light yet it doesn’t look its luxe feel.
Last but not least, Etro is the brand who brought a spaniard vibe to the Milan runways, taking inspiration from the old-spanish culture and Zorro novels, we get to enjoy a full load of relaxed garments. Print and coloured shirts, embellished scarves, and sombreros! Vivid colours – think bright orange, blue and green – are the main eye catching element of it, followed by the spanish-inspired prints. A very interesting collection that made a difference during the third day of MFW.
