Light. This is the watchword of Spring Summer 2023 fashion staged on the Milan catwalks. That light we wanted to see after the pandemic tunnel, that (too much) light that dazzled us last summer, but which is a symbol of rebirth. Light, which translates into sequins, embroidery, decorations, sparkles, which enhance the craftsmanship of Made in Italy. A heritage that all stylists exalt, loudly declaring that it must be protected, especially in one of the most complex moments in our history - Photo | video 1 | video 2 | video 3

FROM CUCINELLI TO FENDI - First among all Brunello Cucinelli , a cashmere entrepreneur who, in his Solomeo, a fourteenth-century village in Umbria, enhances the most precious yarn in the world with sophisticated and highly refined processes. And they are pencil skirts with crochet inlays, voile shirts with abstract flower embroidery, formal suits that lose all stiffness, cardigans that are called “Opera” and are a triumph of painstaking work of sparkling sequins, with fringes. All in natural colors ranging from hazelnut to dove gray with flashes of white, a summer passepartout. Colonial mixed with acid green, lime yellow, orange, also from Fendi for his urban and rigorous collection, from Later for duvets so light that they can be folded into one hand, from Renè Caovilla for the very precious sandals that evoke the shape of a snake that “climbs” up to the ankle. Very delicate and light footwear, perfect accessory for the riot of lingerie-inspired garments, also seen by Prada and N 21 . Slips, culottes, bras used as tops, precious protagonists from Ether , a collection designed for the first time by Marco De Vincenzo, or bras to be glimpsed under oversized shirts, as suggested Antonio Marras .

DA ARMANI A TOD'S - Fashion undresses and becomes simpler, easier, easy, like a summer at the sea, imagined by Giorgio Armani for its Emporio line. On the catwalk the sparkle of the waves, on the models bright and transparent fishnet dresses in pastel shades. The blue, sung by Adriano Celentano in the 60s, often recalled with nostalgia even in the soundtracks of the shows, winks at the sneakers of geox and its “breathable” parkas, rubber life jackets by Moschino used, with the usual irony, as accessories for long dresses, to the faded denim sneakers by Hogan . Pale pink, on the other hand, is the protagonist of the trench coat that closes the fashion show Tod's , worn by Naomi Campbell; the ex Premier Dame Carla Bruni had opened the show, also in a trench coat, but in the canonical color kaki. White brocade instead for the Fausto Puglisi collection for Robert Cavalli : her 'madonna' advances on the notes of Schubert's Ave Maria, light, pure, simple, but in the evening she lights up with light and chooses a pineapple-shaped mini dress, a riot of sparkles and precisely craftsmanship.
