Following an intense weekend dominated by coronavirus panic, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana finished Milan fashion week with a celebration of the artisans they always depended on to produce their pieces.
During the show, Black-and-white videos of il calzolaio (the shoemaker), la sarta (the seamstress), la magliaia (the knitter), la tessitrice (the weaver), la cravattaia (the tie maker), played on screens to pay tribute to the Italian tradition as Gabbana said of the collection in a preview. “It’s a tribute through our eyes to tradition.”
In this collection, the designers diverted from their classic style and tended to explore another side of the Italian women, a more softer and intimate side. they recreated the house wear in wool, crochet and satin.This embrace of artisanship is spreading across fashion, this Dolce and Gabbana collection was heavy on knits.
This collection is one the best this season I loved every piece and every look. The accessories, the bags and shoes are as always the main highlight of the show, we even saw knitted bags and socks.
The Céline Fall/Winter 20/21 is a romantic collection with a strong flair for independent, free and strong women. The new proportions and the dominance of smooth velvet are at the foundation of the collection for this season, it is an evolution of the Celine wardrobe.
The collection is unisex and be worn by both men and women, including the bags. Even, male models were wearing silk blouse. This season Celine collaborated with Fondation Cezar to create a limited Edition Jewellery line of 100 Vermeil and 100 Silver pieces. each piece is presented in an artisanal pine box hot stamped with the designer signature.
EACH PIECE IS SUPPOSED TO BE HELD AND RENDERED PERSONAL BY ITS EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL WEIGHT. THROUGH THIS TACTILE
MANIPULATION, IT BECOMES A TALISMAN OF STRENGTH AND REASSURANCE, REGARDLESS OF GENDER.
THIS SPIRIT IS REFLECTED IN THE ORIGINAL CELINE WOMAN, WHOSE SILHOUETTE AND ATTITUDE STEMMED FROM PARIS IN THE 1970S.
BOTH CELINE AND CÉSAR’S STORIES PAY HOMAGE TO THE MEMORY AND THE FAMILIARITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL.

Cannot wait for the Full Bridal Collection this year,
“When Judy talked about this idea of goddesses, my mind immediately came back to my memories of the statues in Rome, of Botticelli, my point of view that is more Italian.”
Maria Grazia Chiuri joined forces with Judy Chicago to realize the idea of the show. So, on the first day of the couture season, we entered the birth canal of Chicago’s installation, there to watch Chiuri summon a golden host of goddesses onto a womb-shaped runway. The backdrop of the runaway featured a message “What if Women rued the world” as a strong statement from the designer to the world.
Over a six-month preparation, Chiuri’s conversation with Chicago birthed this idea about worship of goddesses and the struggle of women artists to find their own means of expression.
So there were the Dior goddesses, in Chiuri in shiffon and silk, walking in their Roman sandals, silken-fringe dresses conjured without stitching, one shoulder drappe dresses, wrap-over floor-length pleated shirtdress with a blouse and a skirt knotted to one side. The Gold color was dominant and big pieces of accessories were features with almost every look.
