After New York and London, with Paris up next, the runways came alive with vibrant looks for Spring/Summer 2017 during Milan Fashion Week. Creations by Italian houses Fendi and Emilio Pucci stood out in the spotlights.
The bright and fresh collection imagined by Karl Lagerfeld, Fendi Creative Director For Women, promises flair and élan for the Spring/Summer 2017 season. Melding the opulence of a modern rococò wardrobe and the rigor of sporty fashion, the collection proposes a modern-day Marie-Antoinette silhouette, liberated from protocol. Fine lingerie is revealed with candor through floating silk aprons tied with big grosgrain ribbon bows and transparent gowns. A palette of apricot, blush pink and pale mint is warmed by the sporty touch of scarlet and blue signature stripes. Embossed satin and patent leather take on a liquid sheen, emphasizing intarsia motifs. Accessories featured the debut of the new Kan I bag, with rosette embroidery, floral ribbons and candy-colored studs.
For the Spring/Summer 2017 collection, Creative Director Massimo Giorgetti reinvents the classic Pucci jersey. The collection is made almost entirely in the fabric, which looks just like poplin or tulle. On the runway, long and fluid combos cling to the body like beachwear or outerwear cinched at the waist. Knotting, draping and semi-sheer pieces show off a palette of neon hues in both total looks or mixed with astute layering. Graphic and flashy iconic Pucci prints are joined by tribal motifs and big raffia hats, emblematic of the adventurous spirit that inspires the pieces.
