Marni showed a line that had simple, long lines and had a play of prints and colors. Marco de Vincenzo paid a bit of a homage to Elsa Schiaparelli. All in Black and white and goat fur that trimmed some of the clothes. There were pops of color here and there. I loved s black skirt made of goat fur. It was well done.
Aquilino.Rimondi showed a line fit for a modern princess with a mixture of wools and satins, panne velvet, beading, leathers with great color blocking. this was sophisticated, casual and classy luxury.
Brioni by Alessandro Dell'Aqua had great pieces that can be worn like they were presented on the runway or they can be mixed and matched. There were black and white, bright colors and jewel tones., furs and exotic skins. A coat belted with a thin gold chain was pretty modern.
Dolce & Gabbana showed a boy and girl collection that was black and white with some gold and pop of bright colors and a lot of star prints. The boys clothes were tailored and structured. They reminded me of some clothes I wore in the 80's. And the girl clothes were of a softer touch with chiffons, some gold and color.
Long looks with loose tops and pants here and there and looks that were cut close to the body are found at Missoni . The colors were soft and light and had the signature Missoni prints and textures.
Salvatore Ferragamo was sophisticated and modern with some sharp suits, coats and separates. Evening was designed in black done in every way that exuded class, sexiness and elegance.
Versus by Christopher Kane and Donatella Versace was fresh and edgy. Black dominated the collection made with leathers, corset detailing on dresses, and a triangular print that detailed some of the designs. Very pretty!
