Our latest videos from fashion week in Milano are Emporio Armani, Jil Sander and Emilio Pucci, with a highlight reel at the end.
Emporio Armani’s 1920s-inspired collection impressed with its scale and numerous themes, ranging from tailored shorts to velvet jackets to chiffon vests to plenty of fur. The foundation palette of grey and black might have been in keeping with the rest of Milano, but the embellishments were stylish and very Armani.
The news at Jil Sander was designer Raf Simons leaving after seven years, and the possibility that Sander herself would return for her third time at the label. What we saw was particularly lovely: pink, lilac and red to start with, and soft, comforting lines. Luxurious coats, sleeveless dresses, and cashmere bustiers showed that Simons knows his stuff—and we’ll be following his career with great interest.
Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci took the collection in a masculine direction, with tailored jackets, although he still tapped in to the Milano Zeitgeist of a dark, black look. There were oversized coats and jewelled sweaters, tapping more in to Dundas’s Scandinavian heritage than the Pucci archive.
