Major Stores Spread Out
LOS ANGELES — If sportswear is the bread and butter of the department store business, then casual sportswear is like jelly — a popular topping to the overall assortment — and department stores lay it on thick.
And the prize for the coolest catwalk set of the week goes to @driesvannoten. Japanese floral artist Azuma Makoto created 20 floral arrangements caught in plinths of ice for the spring show. #PFW (📷: @zefashioninsider)
@gigihadid and @bellahadid are in power mode. From top models - like the Hadid sisters seen here at @fendi - to great collections, strength took many forms in Milan. Check out this week's issue for all things #MFW. (📷: @zefashioninsider)
#MFW Designer Inspirations: "A 'poster collection' that marks a radical turnaround for creativity: a collection of elements in predominantly white, no color that embodies, in block, all shades of the rainbow." - Tommaso Anfossi and Francesco Ferrari, @cote.official
Front row at @fendi: @elliegoulding was at the show, fresh off releasing the finale song for the latest Bridget Jones flick. "I grew up with Bridget Jones and it was exciting and fun to work on the song. It's a fun and amazing character and I can relate to her." - Goulding #MFW
#MFW Designer Inspirations: "An evocation of dreams, hopes and memories, like a bottle with a letter inside or a magic lamp that looks after your own desires." - Salvatore Piccione on @piccione.piccione's spring collection
