Stella McCartney
The British designer set the ball rolling in the morning, presenting a collection that was athletic but ultra-feminine, featuring plenty of mesh and thick wool yarns in grey, brown and black shades. While the majority of the dresses were worn tight, there were a few loose-fitting wool jackets. In terms of accessories, the square-toed brogues with colorful platform soles did not go unnoticed. The show also left a lasting impression through its cheerful finale, with lively models who were all smiles.

Designer Chitose Abe presented a collection full of contrasts, pairing rather heavy coats and jackets with multiple materials (such as a trio of leather, fur and knits) with ultra-light dresses with sheer or silky skirts. There were several two-tone looks, namely combining grey and blue, as well as a number of multi-colored pieces featuring geometric or tribal prints. The black boots and ankle boots were a big hit.

Giambattista Valli

The Italian designer presented exceptionally feminine and flattering pieces, which naturally highlighted the models’ waists and lengthened their silhouettes. Short skirts are one of Giambattista Valli’s hallmarks, and the couturier lived up to his reputation with itty-bitty A-line skirts and dresses, in printed fabrics and embroidered lace patterns.
