Runway Report: MSGM Fall 2016

Polka dot puffer jackets, cascading ruffle collared classic button-downs, and plenty of mash-ups of floral and stripes, Massimo Giorgetti turned out another colorful cascade of a collection for MSGM FW16, playing with prints and textures in ensembles that kept the eye moving from design detail to design detail and trained the viewer to expect the unexpected.

Giorgetti spared no detail; Hems were floral lace, polka dot fishnet and shimmery oversized paillettes. Collars were ruffled mini-Victorian accents and oversized sculptural accents. Sleeves were elongated or shortened up and paired with buckled gloves in the same color that served the same dramatic covered up effect.

Details harked to the nineties – with lace up combat boots and slinky chain belts. Swoosh metallic pants stood out as a new unexpected luxe layer, as did rich velvet boots in royal blue and floral. Giorgetti also played with ruffles and off-the-shoulder cuts details to soften up borrowed from the boys button-downs.

Never one for subtlety, Giorgetti spoke to the statement maker, and the message was clear: to master the art of the avant garde mix and match you need to stay creative. Long gone are the rules of conventional dressing. Fashion is for risk takers and rule breakers, and of course, above all, for fun.
