MILAN (AP) — Fashion may seem a respite for the cares of the world, but often it is actually an expression of them.
Designers in Milan this week are finding ways to express their concerns about the global affairs through their collections, in some cases purposely providing an escape but in others using textiles and seams to stitch together a story.
Milan Fashion Week on Friday held its third day of previews for next spring and summer with shows by Antonio Marras, Etro, MSGM and Versace.
MILAN (AP) — For anyone wanting to unlock the DNA of Milan ready-to-wear, a new museum exhibition surveying three decades of Italian fashion offers some keys.
Echoes of styles and trends on display in the "Italiana" exhibit at Milan's Palazzo Reale are apparent in big and small ways on the runways during Milan Fashion Week, which runs through Monday with previews of mostly womenswear for next fall and winter.
MILAN (AP) — Milan designers are keeping it clean for next season.
Many collections have a girl-next-door gleam, with an underpinning of sexy. The silhouettes are fresh and there is simplicity to the compositions.
Maybe it's because many designers are taking hints from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s in their designs. And no, that doesn't mean retro. Materials and execution keep the collections modern.
