Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017 © Fendi
At Milan Fashion Week, LVMH Italian fashion houses Fendi and Emilio Pucci presented stunning feminine silhouettes for the season, while Bulgari showcased its leather goods and accessories collection.
The collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld, Creative Director for Fendi Women’s ready-to-wear, evokes the Roman heritage of the Maison. Dresses nipped at the waist have geometric patterns inspired by 18th century Italian papiers dominotés, leaf prints or sheer transparency. Knitwear features large cut-outs while collars and cuffs structure the silhouettes. Materials range from carmine red velvet to wool, underpinned by the season’s red patent leather cuissard boots.
For Fall/Winter 2017, Emilio Pucci Creative Director Massimo Giorgetti sent out a collection full of contrasts and dazzling colors. Wrapped dresses, wide-brim hats covering the face and pants were all fluttering with fringe and assertive glamour. Creations in silk muslin with graphic cuts and multiple patterns played with bright solid colors like green, bubble gum pink and orange. The silhouettes presented by the Florence House evoke colorful tableaux, expressing the image of joyful woman unbridled by convention.
Stars, dots, graphic prints, studs and multicolor explosions bring the Bulgari Fall/Winter 2017 Accessories Collection to life. Inspired by both the figurative arts and a Seventies vibe, the creations exude spirited energy, like the new Diva’s Dream models with the fan-shaped jewel pattern re-imagined as a clasp. The best-selling Calf Leather bag in the Serpenti Forever line is enriched with new colors, and new Bulgari scarves and stoles come in brightly-colored precious silk and cashmere.
