While major labels — Gucci and Giorgio Armani to Versace and Prada — continue to dominate the Italian fashion scene, a new crop of designers is building an international reputation and generating even more attention on the Made in Italy label.
To wit, two of Italy’s hottest brands of the moment, Fausto Puglisi and Stella Jean, have been included in “The Glamour of Italian Fashion, 1945 — 2014,” the vast exhibition on Italian fashion opening at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum on April 5. Jean, along with Gabriele Colangelo, is also among 30 semifinalists for the inaugural LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton Young Fashion Designer Prize.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
