Dark colors and a lot of asymmetry were the key points of Grinko’s Fall 2017 collection, presented here in Milan on the first day of Milan Fashion Week. The show was called The House of Dolls and it took place at the Palazzo Reale, opening this season of Milan Fashion Week in style.
Grinko’s next fall will bring many dark colors, including black, gray, blue and navy, a touch of red in addition to an abstract print and a gray check print.
Asymmetry is the mains feature of the brand’s collection for the upcoming winter, whether it is present in the pieces themselves with sleeves, length or asymmetrical cuts, as in an asymmetrical way of wear it.
The designer also brings reference from the early 80’s punk combined with the rigor of the English Victorian period. This mix and contrast is also created with the use of pieces with a shape closer to the body, while another brings the oversized feeling to the collection.
This collection of Grinko came as an inspiration from the designer’s daughters, who are two newborn twins who even inspired a print on the collection, the image of the ultrasound of the girls Emma and Sophia was turned into print for Grinko’s fall collection.
The family and love theme was signaled by the designer as important point of his inspiration and a message to pass: there is space and respect for all types of families today. <3
• Check my favorite Grinko’s F/W 2017.18 – MFW:
With a somewhat dark but elegant mood, some of my favorite pieces were the capes and this blue shirt (above) that for being super fluid, created a beautiful movement on the catwalk.
I loved the elegance of this flawless outfit.
Here is my outfit for the Grinko Fall 2017 fashion show during Milan Fashion Week:

One of Milan Fashion Week’s presentations I have been was Cangiari Fall 2017, a brand that has rescued an old tradition of fabrics from Calabria (Italy) and which creates handmade woolen fabrics, taking eight hours to create each meter of fabric.
• Cangiari Fall 2017 MFW:
The Cangiari Fall 2017 collection was inspired by the Nature’s colors during the fall/winter season, all with handwoven fabrics produced by the brand.
With patterns that were inspired by the Ancient Greece that meet the new fashion trends. Using a selection of unconventional materials that were inspired by the origins, by the work in the factories and the nights during the war.
With patterns created with Byzantine and Hellenistic designs, Cangiari takes this ancient inspiration to create modern pieces for the Fall 2017 collection.
With garments such as coats, ponchos, capes and kimonos, Cangiari brings us a comfortable fall/winter with beautiful pieces with a lot of style. Perfect to create that cosy style that I love for the fall season.
With fringed pieces and ankle long coats and gilets, the Cangiari Fall 2017 collection has neutral colors such as shades of grey, black and cream, combined with details in red and green on its patterns.
Cangiari collections was created under Maria Paola Pedetta’s creative direction, being a brand which works with the production of fabrics in a sustainable and ethical way, with the traditional made in Italy quality.
Cangiari creative director told that she “thought about a collection that, more than any other, told through the materials the meaning of Cangiari story. Its sprit, its values, its pride.”
While visiting the brand’s presentation at Milan Fashion Week, I’ve learned more about the brand and its process to create the handwoven fabrics: the are created based on a traditional from Calabria (region on the italian south).
This technique was passed from generation to generation through the music of the region and it was falling into oblivion. The brand had to join the songs and their translations to rescue this form of fabric production to create handmade fabrics and pieces of the Italian label.
