Trends from fashion weeksby Sara Pizzi
More than 400 shows. Two continents and four cities. The diet in these long weeks of fashion is in no way low calories! Romantic, ironic, but also sexy and strong. For SS 2017, the fashion capitals present womenswear marked by an eclectic femininity, with a strongly contemporary spirit rich in varied facets and apparently opposite interruptions in continuity. On show, a mix and match of different suggestions and instances ranging from avant-garde tailoring with decidedly sportswear influences to ethnic style infused in urban wear, all with distinct references to the 70s and 80s. Statements that are strong - and, thanks to the response from retail, also efficient - with a focus on fashion that is not an end in itself, but points towards an extreme exaltation of personality.
