Milan Fashion Week closed with resolute odes to femininity. Fendi and Emilio Pucci both featured invitations to their stunningly sublime universes. Winter 2013-2014 is about structured, ultra-sensual silhouettes.
Mastery and creativity defined the 41 silhouettes that Karl Lagerfeld sent out for his 96th collection for Fendi. Infinite variations of fur offered a case study in savoir-faire on coats, skirts, bags and shoes. Fur even coiffed models with fur hairpieces in neon shades.
At Pucci, Peter Dundas drew inspiration from the boundless energy of the 60s, including resolutely mini lengths. Printed skirts, leather shorts and silk tunic tops are worn above thigh-high cuissard suede boots. The show culminated with delicate black dresses whose cutouts revealed the skin thanks to subtle plays on construction and thickness.
