Plus everything else you need to know about the week so far.
It’s not like fashion month has been short of big moments so far – think robots on the runway at Philip Plein in New York and Christopher Bailey’s last Burberry collection in London – but Milan Fashion Week has already turned things up a notch.
Gucci sent models down the runway carrying baby dragons and their own heads, for one thing.
But we’ll get to that. First, what have the Hadids been up to?
Well, both Gigi and Bella have been busy in Milan already. The half-Palestinian sisters both walked for Alberta Ferretti, and looked stunning.
Think sheer fabrics, ’80s volume, velvet and gold.
It’s very more-is-more, especially when you look at those embellished knee-high boots. We’re into it.
Speaking of, Jeremy Scott’s latest Moschino collection is not the place to look if you’re after something casual for every day.
He sent models out in looks inspired by Jackie Kennedy by way of Area 51, and it was a lot of fun. With all the irreverence and sense of theatre we’ve come to expect from Scott, the collection was a delight.
Anyone else thinking of Mars Attacks? So good.
The elder Hadid has also just released the last of her four collections with Tommy Hilfiger. This one has a motorsports vibe – think Rihanna’s latest Fenty x Puma collection, but a little more sedate.
We love that jumpsuit on the right, and the boots. Released on a ‘see now, buy now’ basis, it’s in stores now.
And that Gucci collection? Wow.
With a set dressed to look like an operating theatre (complete with fluorescent lighting) you knew it was going to be a bit different.
Sure enough, Alessandro Michele pushed the envelope again with a collection called Cyborg.
We weren’t kidding about the severed heads.
Or the baby dragon.
In terms of the actual clothing, there was a lot to love. Michele’s talent for synthesising pop culture and a sense of the divine was very much in evidence.
“Doing my job [is] a strange path…in my mind at least, I have a scientific and clinic clarity on what I do,” Michele told Women’s Wear Daily after the show.
Here’s to another season in the Gucci lab, then.
