For his Milan debut, Emiliano Rinaldi chose an old inn in the heart of the city’s artsy Brera district. Rooms were transformed into quasi movie-sets, with the models acting the parts of assorted characters, such as a writer who has just had a stroke of inspiration, or a traveller packing his suitcase. The collection was elegant, but also comfortable.
Fifties-inspired silhouettes dominated, exemplified by a very masculine suit composed of a blazer with strong shoulders worn over a cashmere turtleneck and paired with ample pants. Rinaldi also presented pajama-like silk pants and a tuxedo-inspired housecoat featuring contrasting lapels.
