As mentioned, there is something more pragmatic with Milan, if not a little bourgeois. Great care is applied to garment finish, particularly in color choices and material juxtapositions, and classic tailoring is on the menu as well. We are witnessing some exciting experimentation too!
Milan Fashion Week 2014
Dyed fur seems to be as imposing a trend as New York and London displayed. But Milan is taking it a step further by incorporating it into patterns via cleverly devised patchwork or interspersed layering. The result can be subtle, or not, with pop-art references sometimes taking over the message.
Applying fur details to woolen outerwear is no longer limited to trims – collars, cuffs, hems; coats and jackets today are embracing a multitude of applications that defy conventions.
One innovative treatment that is starting to make wave is a cleverly devised dégradé wool-fur finish that is visually beautiful and also happens to offer a sculptural addition to design.
Goat fur is turning up with forcefulness and impact. Once a super retro-silver screen favorite, it is now coming back as young and edgy, especially when dyed in daywear hues like pink or caramel. We are really enjoying its revival. Who doesn’t like a little jet-set rock n’ roll vibe from time to time?
