Parigi has been giving Milano a run for its money, design- and wearability-wise, this season combining all the signs of sartorial seriousness with the ease of a sportswear mindset replete with its versatility and wearability.
Some of the trends emerging from the recent runway shows give credibility to those seen at the recent trade shows here in New York, from ENK to Capsule to Project.
Tailoring seems triumphant, but it’s a hybrid cross-over look, taking tailored jackets into the realm of sportswear, with cardigan styling or details like detachable knit collars, shawl knit half collars, even velvet insets like the jacket at Louis Vuitton, above.
Accessories are crucial. Even hats are a top trend and ties are merely icing on the forceful direction toward casual but concise dressing.
As in dressed.
