MFW Fall 2016 Runway Report: All Our Highlights From Milan
Gucci’s Statement Heroes
Looking for your next statement piece? The Gucci Fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection was rife with eclectic options. Amid the whopping 70-look collection were colorful furs, clashing prints, rich brocades, tiered dresses, sequined silhouettes, embellished separates, and trompe l’oeil details that would get a street style star’s heart racing. And that’s just the clothes. Creative director Alessandro Michele also sent next season’s must-have statement accessories down the runway with items such as oversized glasses, bold Mary Jane shoes, and net veil pillbox hats.
Moschino Goes Up in Smoke
Moschino’s creative director, Jeremy Scott, turned up the heat with a smoking (literally) showcase titled “It’s Lit.” Models took to the runway decorated with distressed furniture dressed in denim separates, leather-moto silhouettes, and bold evening gowns that were followed by burned tuxedos, a deconstructed dramatic dress trailed with smoke, and a larger-than-life chandelier—because, why not?
La Perla’s Sharp Streak
Pedro Lourenço, the new creative director for La Perla, debuted his first collection for the Italian lingerie brand during MFW. In a monochromatic line-up, the Brazilian designer showcased sharp, tailored separates such as blazers, sleek trousers, and paneled skirts alongside the label’s line of signature lace lingerie and swimsuits.
Dolce & Gabbana’s Fairytale Fantasy
Are you a Cinderella, a Snow White or a Sleeping Beauty? Why be just one princess when you can be all of them courtesy of Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection. The princess-themed offering featured fairytale scenes in the form of embroidered motifs. Amid the on-theme references, which included a modern-day Cinderella-inspired light blue tinsel-embellished midi dress complete with transparent pumps and nutcracker soldier jackets, were floral-print shift numbers and houndstooth options for those not keen on the Disney princess theme.
