Lucire has typically covered New York and London fashion
weeks in more depth, Milano has been a different kettle of fish,
usually dependent on contacts and budgets.
Thomaz, one of the very talented photographers
we have come into contact with over the years, has been attending
the collections, shooting, for starters, Frankie Morellos
autumnwinter 200910 collection.
Italy has not been as exposed to the global financial
crisis as most nationsone
commentator noted how it had fewer Starbucks and was, therefore,
less affected by globalized problemsand Morello certainly
designed as though there were no concerns on the monetary markets.
After all, history has shown that no matter how
hard times get, therell always be people who want to look
great and are willing to fork out for the latest collections. It
came as Roberto Cavalli cancelled his presentation and Armani went
jittery over retail salesbut its times like this when
less known designers can capitalize on their flatter management
structures and forge ahead.
Morello went for origami and geometry in his
autumnwinter vision, and his three-dimensional cones and gathering
made for a startling, welcome collection.
