All the details you need to know from day 3 of Milan Digital Fashion Week: 

1. Salvatore Ferragamo

The namesake brand presented its Pre-spring 2021 womenswear and menswear collection revolving around minimalistic details. Clean cuts, neutral tones and simple construction were the focal points of Salvatore Ferragamo‘s collection at Milan Digital Fashion Week. The short film took the viewers through a brief history of the brand, paying homage to the excellent craftsmanship Salvatore Ferragamo is known for and the Italian region of Tuscany. Creative director Paul Andrew‘s aim behind the collection was to highlight the obstruction caused by the pandemic which he did by skipping on any ornamental usage.

“..functionalism inspired by nature featuring clean lines, organic materials, minimal construction and a relative lack of ornament were all design aspirations that were very much in sync with the limitations we were working under.”

revealed Andrew on the brand’s Instagram page.

2. Tod’s 

“Inside Tod’s Studio” was the name of Tod’s Pre-spring 2021 collection. Creative director, Walter Chiapponi‘s vision was to tell a story through a piece of garment or accessory, which was shown to the viewers as the luxury leather brand gave the watchers a glimpse inside the brand’s studio where ideas are personified and stories are weaved. The collection comprised loafers, combat boots and more with rubber soles, faux leather cuts and lace detailing. Top-handle bags made of leather were dipped in a palatial colour palette of purples, whites and ochres. While the menswear and womenswear lines were interconnected by inspiration. Men’s clothing was infused with the essence of masculinity and women’s with femininity. Classic brown leather jackets, the Tod’s monogrammed waistbelt, multicoloured, panelled sweaters, glossy trench coats were amongst the few silhouettes the film gave its viewers a glimpse of.

3. DSQUARED2

Dean & Dan Caten, the designers at DSQUARED2 took the watchers behind the scenes of their spring/summer 2021 collection for Milan Digital Fashion Week. Role-playing as movie directors, Dean and Dan showcased their formal-wear collection—structured tuxedos and suits before unveiling their sporty collection.

The humorous duo revealed their inspiration which was the season of summer, travelling, staying active—highlighting the simple things of life.

4. Versace

Donatella Versace took the virtual on-lookers inside a warehouse which served as the runway for her spring/summer 2021 collection. The line was unveiled in a musical video wherein the designer had American rapper and songwriter Aj Tracey perform an unreleased track “Step On” which the models danced and walked to. Aj donned black, coordinated separates—jacket with trousers featuring sequined patterned stripes in diamond-like shapes. Pastel shades like pistachio green and powder pink made cameos in suits for men with knee-length trousers and a blouse + skirt combo for women. Oversized blazers with edgy shoulders were worn as dresses cinched with belts and the collection, overall, was a playful yet sexy one!
