When it comes to pushing sartorial boundaries, no one does so quite like Italian fashion brands. You need only think of the powerhouses—Prada, Miu Miu, Fendi, and so on—and their standout collections instantly come to mind. Ask me what I remember seeing on the New York runways in February 2017, and, honestly, I couldn’t tell you anything off-hand. But Gucci’s Milan Fashion Week show the same year? I can instantly recall a green jacquard suit styled with a straw hat the size of a beach umbrella, a banana-yellow jumper adorned with bats, and a cascading sequin maxi dress complete with rainbow stripes and flowers, juxtaposed with an offbeat jewellery choice; a black leather dog collar. It’s simple, Italian fashion brands create clothes to be remembered; that you can’t stop thinking about. And never before has that sentiment been more accurate than it is now.
