Sarah Burton continues her dialogue between Alexander McQueen's men's and women's clothing, this time with a tale of understated elegance and modernism. The sartorial inspiration of Autumn Winter 2020 derives from Art Nouveau and Arts and Craft and as a main reference the abstraction of Henry Moore's designs. Double-breasted coats and tailored suits cut with pointed and golden panels in Donegal tweed in flint gray and charcoal palette. Sets and outerwear made with prints of Henry Moore's works of art, subject to a three-quarter figure from 1928, made with the kind permission of the Henry Moore Foundation. Oversized knitwear in wool and mohair with abstract motifs, the work suits of the artists in stone and white printed with oversized skulls hand-drawn and embroidered with silver and gold thread. A presentation accompanied by the live-performance of a string orchestra that illuminated Alexander McQueen's return to Milan Fashion Week.
The Missoni family brings to the MFW a Fall Winter 2020 men's fashion collection full of stylistic influences. A new interpretation of Jazz from the 70s and 80s returns in a contemporary key with the brand's knitwear. The silhouettes are voluminous and oversized with unexpected and modernist cuts. Soft and delicate yarns made of cashmere and cashmere-silk blend that combine in workings with alpaca, mohair, felted wool brushed cotton, and blends of lamé. Jacquard with animal motifs similar to patchwork or made with a mix of patterns taken from the brand's archive.
Iceber moves to the temple of club culture: the Alcatraz, historic Milanese location perfect for the scenario of the Fall Winter 2020 fashion show designed by James Long. A fusion of military silhouettes with the luxury sportswear component of the brand's heritage. The protagonists of Loonely Tunes including Titti, Silvestro and Taz become motifs in blue and black degradé on sweatshirts, jackets and coats. The collection also includes a capsule collection in co-lab with the English artist Eddie Peake , inserting the motifs taken directly from his works of art, recreating garments with a vaporwave inspiration and a technicolor look. A new and unexpected attempt to describe clubwear clothing.
