Designers couldn’t help but notice the new norm of interaction at a distance, with the Italian fashion capital under lockdown again and its luxury shops closed.

One model lifted Ermenegildo Zgna’s telephone receiver, while Silvia Fendi introduced herself by saying “Hello, it is Silvia calling” during a voiceover for her catwalk show.

Tod’s left a message on the answerphone from Lorenzo Zurzolo, an Italian actor who recounted a week in solitary confinement in a villa. You could see that comfortable, cosy indoor-wear was making a mark on outdoor fashions. Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada both layered up their looks with long-johns.

  • Fendi offers colourful shorts with a quilted design and K-way is focusing on its yellow, orange, and zip zip. Fashion houses hope men will show more leg next winter.

Light and colours

Next winter is all about bright colours. Etro has put sunny, golden shades on the forefront, while Prada has gone for jackets that are full of fuchsia and red, violet, and short coats in pink or ice blue.

Men’s Fashion Week saw models dancing as designers sought to free bodies that were long disabled from showing their legs.

The clothes were designed to be worn together, and allow for movement.

Prada’s soft knits weren’t a barrier to dancing, and Tod’s wore an oversize coat on a model who was just starting to dance. (AFP)
