The Milan shows wrapped up yesterday, so before heading into the grand finale that is Paris, why not take one last quiz on the best of the Italian runways? First, to test your knowledge, take a look at this lacquered silk look from an iconic Italian label. The brand is known for their over-the-top glamour and this look doesn’t disappoint with its hand-painted flowers and carefully applied leaves. The result is a stunning piece that appears more like a work of art than a simple cocktail dress.
For a greater challenge, try to figure out who created this pleated silk-and-belt combination. It’s by a house known for its mastery of architectural shapes and clean lines. The oversize shape is reminiscent of a giant piece of ribbon folded in on itself — exaggerated and meant for the truly bold wearer.
And for the final question, check out this close-up view of some flowers on a bomber jacket by one of the quirkier designers of the week. The sporty collection was presented in near silence, all the better to focus on the embellished pieces. The contrast of the fluffy flowers with the ribbed detailing mixes masculine and feminine details in fun and youthful way.
