Saving some of the best for last, the Milano Modo Donna fashion week ended with some exciting collections for next spring.
Federico Piaggi and Stefano Citron showed their collection for Gianfranco Ferre. Stefano Citron explained the thinking behind their work: “For us this is a very important collection because it is like an homage to Mr Ferre. It is about a strong woman, really perfect, but with little details like flowers and decorative elements on the belts, maybe on the dresses on the front you have a precise masculine belt and at the back you have flowers. It’s a mix, it’s a contrast.”
Dean and Dan Caten also showed their new collection for DSquared. Dean Caten said: “It’s a celebration of the ’90s. We’re having a little bit of fun. It was a time when fashion was a little bit more aggressive, tough, fun, courageous, short, for a sexy woman, body conscious.”
Roberto Cavalli wound up Milan Fashion Week in style – new style. Roberto Cavalli summed it up: “It is a new romantic chic of Roberto Cavalli, where the colours are very sophisticated, white complete, black complete. Then we pass through to apricot, to lime, to light turquoise, ecru. You know, they are colours that are very sophisticated.”
