PRADA

“A massive white-pillared Yves Klein blue pool, surrounded on all sides by bleachers covered in dodgy golden-brown carpet (only Miuccia would pair that with a glittering pool) that extended to a raised runway on the water – it was a Miuccia-style take on an old summertime chestnut.”

GUCCI

“Ahoy sailor! A crisp maritime cruise on the Gucci yacht. Ticking all the nautical boxes and yet deftly managing to rise above costume party clichés.”

PHILIPP PLEIN

“Plein turned the Botta baths and Caimi pool into a giant night-time water theatre, kicking off his fashion spectacle with a group of synchronised swimmers in Swarovski-studded swimming caps and Theophilus London performing from the back of a jet ski driven by a guy in a tux before the models walked along the poolside runway. Only in Milan.”

DSQUARED2

“Drawing on Stephen Sprouse and mash-ups of contemporary art and Andy Warhol's camouflage, the designers sent out a succession of sportswear-inspired pieces covered in neon camo and denim embroidered with sketches and scribbles from an artist's canvas to the sound of Edie Sedgewick's dialogue from Factory Girl.”

BOTTEGA VENETA

“The collection exuded a quiet, subdued luxury – weathered wanderers in fraying cashmere and knits bleached by sun, with models’ hair held back by headbands.”
