The moment that swallowed up the entire Milan Fashion Week took place at the end of the Versace show.
Everyone knows that there will be surprises beforehand, but no one knows what it is. The lights dimmed, the soundtrack gradually rose, and then - Jennifer Lopez! 50-year-old Jennifer Lopez! Dressed in the new version of the jungle print skirt that passed through the 2000 Grammy Awards, it debuted.
Yes, that is, the skirt that has been split from the navel to the navel, and below the crotch, caused a lot of online searches. Internet and fashion legends are the cause of Google's ability to create image search functions (more credible is that this skirt is only part of the reason; it is of course important, but still only a part).
The skirt has been upgraded, which is obvious – there are fewer fabrics on the side, the sleeves are removed, the matching bikini leggings are studded with gems, and the palms are decorated with colorful palm leaves. But these are just the details; the impact it brings is still the same. The bag is in your hand. The entire audience was brushed up and stood up. People have pulled out their mobile phones and waved like daggers. Every time they waved, they seemed to be cutting out the little pieces that belonged to them from her step-by-step display.
please forgive. However, if there is anything that can be called the fashion finale since the turn of the millennium, the dramatic changes in these years – or the same – will come out, and that is the dress.
Of course, there was neither Instagram nor live streaming at that time; people at that time would not see the show through their small camera lens, they all used their own naked eyes; the designers at that time only released two series ( Or only two of us have heard of it; editorial and glamorous fashion magazines are still the main source of fashion information; those who are fashion people will not consider themselves even if they read Silent Spring at school. Have any connection with this book with the work you do.
This makes people feel uncomfortable: the world has changed to this point! But obviously this is not the case for Lopez; she looks the same as in the past. If she wants to say something changes, she is now more powerful and more fit.
But the same is true of most of Donatella Versace's fashion designs: pointed-shoulder black dresses with huge gold hardware; pleated sweatshirts that deliberately reveal the flanks; tie-dyed Medusa T-shirts From the denim jacket to the fringe on the edges, the sequined evening dresses with sharp three-dimensional alien flowers, almost every piece of clothing is cobalt blue jade, fire opal, or jungle print.
This also shows that the real point of this fashion show is "the more change, the more unchanged", and so on. The fashion scenes of New York and London may endure the pain of the turbulent changes in the city; the deformation of social and political life, a new balance of power, is reflected in the evolution of the runway. But in Milan, the status quo 20 years ago is still the status quo today. This sounds boring and annoying, although the status quo is beautified as "inheritance" or "gene".
The sun and the earth and the place
Let's look at this problem: The global climate strike coincides with the Versace fashion show on the same day. On this day, thousands of people took to the streets of New York, Berlin and Sydney, while in Milan they were as usual.
“Is there a protest here?” the tourists asked. The locals raised their eyebrows and shrugged. Later, Giorgio Armani named his show "Earth" and sparked some expectations - but in the end people found out that it was only because it was inspired by the colors of the earth that gradually became clear in the morning mist. (dark brown, midnight blue).
The trousers are pleated on the hips, tightened in the calves, or loosely like pajama pants. Jackets are either long or short, or curved or square. The skirt is long and elegant, usually thin and transparent. There are some sportswear references, a little banana palm tree print, and a lot of pastel patterns. In the end, the two models appeared in a shiny evening gown, and their bodies were wrapped in a layer of organza with a stiff fold; both female models held one elbow with one arm. The other hand is erected upwards and lifted to one side, as if it were a cigarette. But the truth is, now is 2019, so that one is empty. This is a metaphor, if there are people who will think about it.
At the same time, in the summer fashion show made by Missoni around a giant public swimming pool, Angela Missoni gave each guest a mini of Olafur Eliasson. Solar lights, with a message: "With us with the sun, our planet has reached a critical juncture, we should take action."
与此同时，在Missoni围绕一个巨型公共泳池制作的夏日时装秀场上，安吉拉·米索尼(Angela Missoni)送给每位来宾一只奥拉维尔·埃利亚松(Olafur Eliasson)的迷你太阳能灯，并附有留言：“和我们一起与太阳牵手，我们的星球已到了紧要关头，我们应当采取行动。”
Then, like Sony, Versace and Armani, they did some aesthetic recycling and reuse, with layers of layers of sparkling metal ornaments, strips of flowers stacked with plaids of ultra-thin knit fabric, and one (or two pieces) wrapped around the waist. The cardigan on the top makes the beautiful men of the 1970s and the free people who love their love to die.
There isn't a reduction in the number (there are 72 shapes in the entire Missoni show), but there is no doubt that there is reuse: creativity, silhouette, print, and in doing so, often with joy and carelessness. Remember this? ! That is it.
Where does this lead us?
At Etro's fashion show, Veronica Etro is also associated with Keith Richards, Anita Pallenberg and Jane Birkin. Reminiscing about the flow of years; paisley and butterfly embroidery; gorgeous rock-cut tailoring and wandering style fringed trim sweater (with her father Jimo's first striped men's shirt). At the Salvatore Ferragamo show, Paul Andrew updated the brand's most famous shoe, Vara (the flat shoes with the bow on the tip of the shoe), changed its name to Viva, and the overall shoe was stretched. The material of the bow has also been changed to leather - he used this idea almost exclusively for men and women in this series: upgrading the classics. Remove the back of the leather trench coat for a sense of movement; the bubble skirt of the skirt; the Poseidon print inspired by the marble fountain statue, is applied to everything from loose pants to evening dresses.
在Etro的时装秀上，维罗尼卡·艾绰(Veronica Etro)也与基斯·理查兹(Keith Richards)，安妮塔·帕里博格(Anita Pallenberg)和简·柏金(Jane Birkin)一起追忆流年；佩斯利纹与蝴蝶刺绣；华丽摇滚式的剪裁和流浪风格的流苏饰边毛衣（配上她父亲吉莫首创的条纹男士衬衫）。在Salvatore Ferragamo秀上，保罗·安德鲁(Paul Andrew)对品牌最著名的鞋款——Vara（就那种鞋尖装饰了蝴蝶结的平底鞋）做了更新，更名为Viva，整体鞋型被拉长，蝴蝶结的材质也改成了皮革——他对这个系列的男装和女装差不多就是用这个思路：对经典进行升级。去掉皮革风衣的背面以利动感；半身裙的泡泡裙摆；受大理石喷泉塑像启发的海神印花，被运用到从宽松卫裤到晚礼服的一切设计上。
This is a gradual process. Although the familiarity may be reassuring, it also led us to some uneasy conclusions. We have all experienced and passed through - and you see how we are doing now? Not very good.
That's why Marni's show brought such shock. Francesco Risso has been the creative director for nearly three years and has taken full control of the brand. He is transforming the brand's own quirky art scene into something more ambitious and more adventurous. His approach is also scratching his head, but with a conspicuous magnetism.
The theme around this time is -- oh... who knows what it is? However, it involves some kind of fabricated tropical disease, and its exclusive medicine “Tachitropirina”, which treats “state of metamorphosis and deformation” and “extremely fanatical emotions such as the Fauvism” and “complete loss of mobility”. The crowd could not use this medicine, which should have been reflected from the layout of the conference, including cartoon palm trees made of recycled plastic and recycled cardboard. In addition, the bright lines spilled from the clothing can also be seen. It is conceivable to transplant the Tahiti of Gauguin to the banks of the Tiber River. This is probably what it means.
Lazy shirt with a sleek blouse from the shoulders, a skirt with a knotted knot and a knot; a long grooved leather pleated slip; a simple oval collar twill dress with a layer of crocheted flowers The pattern net; the inflated coat wraps the body; and the apron dress is so loosely hung on the body, wonderfully attached to all possibilities. We are basically this state. Or want this state.
These clothes are not virally popular - there is a good chance that there will never be a piece of clothing that can do this on their own. Versace seems to understand this better than anyone else - but they finally come up with a problem that is hard to ignore View.
