Milan’s prestigious Pinacoteca di Brera served as an impressive set for Giada’s first runway show. The artistic atmosphere complemented the inspiration for the collection, which in turn referenced the work of Danish painter Anne Tholstrup. In literal tribute, creative director Gabriele Colangelo reproduced the artist’s signature combination of graphic lines and circles in various pieces. They appeared as metallic discs, discreetly punctuating many looks, including clean-lined leather and cashmere dresses and skirts. The collection’s overall minimal aesthetic was balanced by a richness of materials. These included mohair, used for frocks and sweaters, revealing V-cuts on the back, as well as mink fur, reworked for collarless coats. Colangelo delivered an elegant lineup that goes against a rising maximalist mainstream.
