Milan designers hit reset button during digital fashion week

MILAN (AP) — Fashion is off the hamster wheel, taking a deep breath that is allowing some freshness to seep into the once relentless cycle.

“It is so weird thinking about fashion, and the kind of hamster wheel of fashion, and how we never had a break and always complained about it,’’ Marc Jacobs said during a Milan Fashion Week video chat with Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons post-digital show. “And then you get a break, and you complain.”

Instead, he said, he was taking the moment to watch others, and be inspired.

(No surprise, as this is the same country from which design geniuses such as Arne Jacobsen, Georg Jensen, and Hans Wegner hailed.)

While many of these cosmetic companies have yet to make waves stateside—save one all-day moisturizing lip balm that goes on white but leaves a matte, almost-powdery finish—that’s about to change. Boutique brands are churning out coffee-infused eye oils; display

Another season of shows has come and gone, with Fall 2021 Men’s Fashion Week wrapping up over the weekend. The fashion calendar is undergoing a reorganization of sorts, as brands and fashion councils struggle with what’s necessary and what’s not. London forewent the men’s schedule, rolling its shows into next month’s women’s shows. New York, too, called things off. In Milan and Paris though, the shows must go on. Most brands opted for lookbooks or pre-shot videos; others, elaborate live-streamed runways; and still others, actual in-person shows, albeit with very few attendees.

And while we’ve enjoyed watching the likes of Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Dior on our screens (and playing Balenciaga’s freaky fantasy video game) there’s no denying that we are missing the in-person component, seeing the street style and being seen ourselves. But the show must go on. And even though there is a lack of street style slideshows, some fashion show guests are still dressing up.

Couture Fashion Week Exclusive: Daniel Roseberry On His New Schiaparelli Collection & Lady Gaga’s Inauguration Dress

He also took inspiration from Elsa Schiaparelli’s original wooden mannequins, a girl and a boy “she loved so much she gave them a wedding ceremony,” he says, to create anatomic bustiers in leather. Kim Kardashian was the first to wear a green rendition of this style for her Christmas party.
