A style that suits both men and women

During Milan Design Week, graphics and geometry set the trend in the fashion world. This includes coats, accessories, clothing and footwear with optical lines, big and graphically pleasing signs and letterings.

The optical patterns in black and white also come in many colours, and are among the hottest trends for spring summer 2017. The impact of Christopher Kane’s vision is strong and attracts an explosion of colours and inserts where the dominant rule is to explore fabrics and unexpected materials with an artistic virtuoso talent that aims to shock. In the designer’s hands, even the most basic of garments takes on a new charm. Sections of clothes in optical versions overlap monochrome outfits cut in ever innovative and contemporary slants.

Lanvin’s graphic design is expressed in classic jackets that are enriched with calligraphy in monochrome optical effects. But not only. The total look includes ribbed velvet in pure 70s taste, including textures, jackets and trousers.

Moschino, with his usual irreverence, continues to follow his collection’s trend dedicated to jobs and road construction sites. Fluorescent colours, fun and exuberant patterns, advertising signs, pop outfits, mark a work fashion to be built from a road construction site. Under the skilled hands of Jeremy Scott haute couture fabrics become reflectors, the classic outerwear is fluorescent. Skirts and dresses are covered with bands with printed receipts and roadwork signs, while theatre bows embellish elegant suits and impeccable cocktail dresses.
