Marni’s Consuela Castiglioni‘s tightly edited Spring/Summer outing was focused on sporty color-blocked separates with a clean, minimal appeal, leaving her trademark vintage quirkiness behind for updated and somewhat preppy basics in unexpected hues that are all uncompromisingly easy on the wear and undeniably fresh.
Missoni Spring 2012
A body conscious athletic theme gave the house’s signature Missoni textured knits a relaxed sportif appeal that would have felt a tad bit too banal if they had not been accentuated with a focus on new textures and weaves and hit upon the season’s color-blocking trend. Only going to show you that it’s not always about reinventing the wheel each season when just a little spin will do.
Etro Spring 2012
Light layers and a heavy hand with the house’s iconic paisley and foulard prints made this one of Kean Etro’s richest and most accomplished outings to date where the classicism of traditional menswear was married with an evocative and heady sense of all things dandy in the most handsome sense of the word, making this outing a welcome proposition amidst a rather drab season in Milan.
