Day two at Milan Fashion Week brought shows from industry heavyweights such as Emporio Armani, Fendi, Anteprima, Prada and Moschino. Juggling romance and power, fashion houses put prints in the spotlight with an impressive amount of flowers, and with strong pieces such as corsets. The day also saw Fendi show its final collection from Karl Lagerfeld, who died Tuesday, February 19 age 85. The show proved a tastefully elegant final tribute to the designer.
Jeremy Scott once again caused a sensation with his latest Moschino offering, with a show themed on TV shopping shows. Extravagance was ramped up to new heights — if that’s possible — with super-kitsch silhouettes and quirky accessories of the kind only the American designer can come up with.
With big hair, a banknote dress, and handbags in the form of a toothpaste tube and a slot machine, the fashion house showed a collection that may be virtually unwearable but which certainly lifts the spirits.
