- Story Text: The big name designers started their womenswear shows in Milan with D&G and Giorgio Armani taking the stage.
Womenswear for next spring and summer at D&G, the stablemate of Dolce & Gabbana, was inspired by Glastonbury Festival at the designers' show on Monday (September 24), and featured a hippy mix of silks, chiffons and denims.
Jeans had wide, wide legs and were patched and fringed enough to make Tom Sawyer proud.
Men's pullovers and oversize shirts gave an almost hand-me-down chic look.
D&G had flowing, big tent dresses with drawstring necks that were a collage of prints in blacks, reds, whites and grey. Flat leather sandals with rope-bindings at the ankle and floppy leather hats kept the anything goes mood.
Giorgio Armani took a Mediterranean theme for his collection, which featured loose silk Turkish style trousers that ended in ties at the knee in sand, grey and marine blue satin.
Models wore nets on their hair and the fishing theme was extended to shawls and shoulder shrugs that threw a lattice over slim silk gowns. Gauzy grey sarongs were short to above the knee and worn with sparkling vests.
