Max Mara becomes nostalgic at Milan Fashion Week
Sep '14
The luxury Italian fashion house Max Mara opened the second day of Milan Fashion Week with its nostalgia-inspired Spring Summer 2015 catwalk show.

The brand drew inspiration from the 1970’s Italian film The Garden of the Finzi-Continis as well as its own archived 1971’s advertising campaign images, showcasing the American actress Anjelica Huston, for its heavy on retro aesthetics line. Replete with early 1970-esque silhouettes and monochrome toned star, confetti, squiggly line, flower and abstract prints, the range showcased georgette blouses, swishy long skirts and lean loose-fit dresses.

Emporio Armani, one of the sub-labels under international Italian fashion label Armani, chose to feature a 52-piece sportswear-inspired collection based heavily on the colour blue. Created using different shades of blue including cornflower, navy and metallic alongside grey and white, the cotton, leather and technologically enhanced fabric made ensembles were relaxed trousers with glittery cuffs, striped Bermuda shorts, shimmering patchwork adorned jeans, prom dresses, resin bodices and maxis.

The Rome-based furrier Fendi, under the creative direction of the German design veteran Karl Lagerfeld, showcased an orchid-inspired collection. Detailed with different orchid floral patterns and slashed necklines, the range included mini dresses, sporty jackets, pyjama sets, cropped harem pants, collared dresses and tops in tones of blue, white and grey.

Dean and Dan Caten, the identical twin brother design duo behind the international fashion house Dsquared2, presented a riot of colours at the Milanese extravaganza. Adorned with Art Deco style bold swirling circular patterns, the featured pieces were voluminous skirts, shorts, crisp white crop tops, racer back blouses, green and violet striped ball skirts and distressed denims.

Italian designer Miuccia Prada, from the eponymous label Prada, infused topstitching in her fresh S/S15 clothes. Made using leather and brocade and contrasting stitching details, the collection displayed A-line coats with three-quarter sleeves, belted coatdresses, knee-length skirts, short sweaters and dresses with diamante encrusted necklines.
