Emilio Pucci by Massimo GiorgiettiWhen Dundas left Emilio Pucci for the Cavalli gig, it took MSGM founder Massimo Giorgetti’s career to new heights, as he was appointed Creative Director of the Florentine maison. Back in June, Giorgietti gave us a taste of what to expect from his version of Pucci, in a capsule collection titled “The Pilot Episode”, presented at Pitti Immagine Uomo. This fashion week however, he’ll give us the real deal. Whether it will be similar to the sexy Emilio Pucci glamour we’ve become accustomed to over the years – or if he’ll revamp the brand in a way Alessandro Michele did at Gucci – is the million dollar question.
Moschino’s latest movesJeremy Scott’s tongue-in-cheek ways with the Moschino brand, have turned the womenswear show into the must-attend of Milan’s fashion calendar. In the season that followed, he turned the catwalk into his very own Barbie world, creating a collective desire for bright pink and big hair. In his most recent collection, which was sent down the runway in February, he made Looney Tunes-plastered shirts and accessories the new black. Perhaps that a superheroes theme for spring/summer 2016 would be too easy, nonetheless it shall be revealed September 24th what the US designer has up his sleeves.
Armani’s protégéThere’s only one Armani, but every season “il re della moda” introduces the media at large to a new designer, by offering an emerging name a one of a kind platform: a fashion show inside the Armani headquarters on Via Bergognone. This season, Milan-based Israeli Daizy Shely is the chosen one, following in the footsteps of designers including Stella Jean and Andrea Pompilio.
