In its proposal presented at the Milan fashion week, will not lack the sets of sartorial with a marked British air renovated and also a good selection of key sets in sportswear where the summer flowers or the point will be (as we have seen in other shows) main protagonists of the play.
British Tailoring With a Twist
This time the creator has left at home her more punk and points to the liberty style more stately, typical of the style English gentleman par excellence, yes, remastering the look with its peculiar, and very particular, sense of aesthetics.
Much more moderate than other seasons, the tailoring of Westwood strolls by way of relaxed cut suits and silhouettes regulate - or straws, or ultra-tight American - in the middle is the measure. Straight cut pants often with very high waists and long shortened, which show the ankle. The Blazers meanwhile are the most comfortable.
In the suits more casual predominantly neutral and wrinkled finishes , while the more 'dressed', take pristine, and the classic tones of traditional tailoring , see the marine, gray scale, natural colors (brown , beige, terracotta) ...
Presented in both smooth and cool wool summer as Prince of Wales suit. Many of them in three-piece sets with matching vest. And as Americans, not decided by any specific, thus it contains both crossed and simple, many with rounded edges.
For evening night, no doubt possible to the perfect look is the black tuxedo with white shirt and bow tie in pastel shades, or basic classical ubiquitous black.
The fine point, oversize
In the first outputs of the sportswear we see an elegant dandy that dressed in damask dress pants, shirts with patterns such as the microtopos or striped fabrics, , and as key outerwear, stunning fine point.
And it is that the point precisely is another one of the big advantages of this show. Cross-outfitted oversize cut jackets conjoined belt, Lurex point cardigans, sweaters with necks runaway with large horizontal stripes, or twin-sets with checkerboard pattern sets.
Playing with prints
If we talk about prints we must mention, first, flowers that in addition to adorn the heads of many of the models (and her husband), are another key element, highlighting sets items total look of three pieces with Bermuda, shirt and matching jacket. Printed graphics, a few others similar to the tye-dye, discrete tropical Palm trees prints, paisley stripes, complete the extensive range of prints.
Accessorization is marked by the raffia hats - some wing of xl or straw in borsalinos hats looks in Riviera key - and the bags and backpacks of fabric and canvas with graphic motifs. Besides an extensive collection of pieces of copper jewelry, necklaces and brooches, all with animal motifs such as butterflies and scorpions.
And to fit, the range of possibilities is it wide. From Sandals to loafers with tassels, loaffers of leather patent, printed slippers , shoes with laces both derby as brogue... that not to mention some boots low cane, or both basktet shoes, as grid that accompany the more casual outfits.
