The clothes are still snug and cosy, but fashion designers are now dreaming of outings and parties, judging from the womenswear collections for next winter presented virtually in New York, London, Milan and Paris.
The resurgence of Covid-19 in Europe is increasing the uncertainty surrounding September fashion events. Trade show and fashion week organisers are trying to cope, amidst postponements, cancellations and online options.
Designers looked to redefine the role of fashion at Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday, with Calcaterra, Marco Rambaldi and Gilberto Calzolari sending out particularly conscious and purposeful collections.
On Wednesday, Tiziano Guardini’s eco-couture, Calcaterra’s classy style, Marco Rambaldi’s light touch and Arthur Arbesser's cheerful elegance demonstrated the potential of Italy’s up-and-coming designers.
The minimalist elegance of Calcaterra, the playful fashion of Arthur Arbesser and Annakiki's bright eclecticism all revealed the potential of the next generation of Italian design at Milan Fashion Week on Wednesday.
