I had the chance to attend 3 shows of Milano Fashion Week.
Collection F/W 15/16: “The groupie attitude”
The collection is inspired by the iconic Marianne Faithfull. The famous British artist, groupie of the Rolling Stones and partner of Mick Jagger,is a exception to the groupies attitude, young music-starved women who leave everything to devote themselves to the band and musicians becoming their muses. This reminds one of the Sixties. And Vivetta’s collection reinterpret the volumes from the Sixties: mini-skirts, mini-dresses with flared skirts, capri pants, double-breasted jackets are enriched by surreal decorations.
I noticed a lot of striped and colorful clothes. Also fur and prints will be fashionable next season.
The most used colors are light blue, brown, biscuit, burgundy, dark red and of course the simple ones: black and white.
Every piece is manufactured and “Made in Italy”.
The show took place at the impressive Armani Teatro.
Finale at Vivetta Fall/Winter 2015-16.
My 2nd show: Cividini
I have a new favorite brand; the name is Cividini.
I had the chance to get into the backstage area and I really fell in love with every single piece of Miriam and Piero Cividini’s new collection.
The show took place in a fascinating old palace; Palazzo Clerici and it was superb.

Cividini 15/16 main collection: put a knit detail on
Cividini showed a lot of floral printed clothes and some classy black coats, dresses.
The knitted detail is the feature through which Cividini has chosen to characterise F/W 2015 collection.
Knitted details, in different threads and stitches, appear on various items enabling Cividini to show off its constructive eclecticism and significant craftsmanship skill.
My 3rd show: Aquilano.Rimondi
The Aquilano.Rimondi F/W 2015-16 collection is inspired by the neoplastic artistic movement, offering pure forms, respectful of highest sartorial tradition.
There are a lot of geometric abstractions, masculine shapes and graphic items.
Their color palette is: pure white, iconic blue, gray, silver.
The collection is inspired by an urban style from a world in constant evolution.
