Deconstructing Milan SS15

Begüm Boré splices the work of mid-century French designer Jean Royère with Fendi, Versace and other Milan shows of the season

As a prelude to Paris SS15, and a postlude to Milan AW14 where I had tied the models to furniture by Allen Jones, Milan SS15 will literally cross reference collections to furnitures by mid-century French designer Jean Royère's Eiffel Tower pieces – as well as his other works. As it turns out, Paul Smith's soon-to-be chairs from London SS15 are part of the set superimposed on a dress by Alberta Ferretti (see illustration 5).
