This year marked 40 years for Giorgio Armani and his iconic company, and he kept his customary suits and soft shades of greys, blues and greens while adding some unfamiliar but welcomed fabrics like lustrous silks along with some paisley and polka dot prints. The impeccable blend of a little something old and a little something new to set a milestone.
Stepping away from what he’s known for, Neil Barrett showcased a collection unlike anything he’s done before with the focus on an array of prints. Playing with camouflage and maritime stripes and seemingly uniting them into new and stimulating blend while putting a spin on classic silhouettes in a subtle color palette.
Another collection emerged with an ode to prints; MSGM stepped up to the spring/summer 2016 season with a more mature vibe opting out of the usual abstract configurations and upbeat color schemes. The entire collection had an eco-friendly, slightly Japanese, monk-like frequency with a slew of knit or crocheted pieces made of what looked like linens and cottons.
