Giuliano Calza wore his surprise at being invited to present his first Milan show on his sleeve, with the tongue-in-cheek slogan “Sea Riously” slapped across the playful collection.
Fishing industry workwear served as the inspiration for the line’s streetwear basics with bright yellow cotton macs, colored rubber-soled sneakers, sweatshirts sporting kitsch fish packaging labels and tapestry sweatpants and hoodies depicting a vintage painting of ships at sea.
The women’s looks were based on life jacket-inspired hooded vests offset by skin.
The palette of primaries and whites was broken up by quirky baby pink and bright green combos on boiler suits and jackets, with rubber slides and socks finishing off the look.
Models gathered on the wooden-pier catwalk for the finale and the lights went down to reveal glow-in-the-dark accessories and logos which, like the rest of the collection, was fun.
