Scottish fabric was a mainstay in European collections led by Glaswegian designer Charles Jeffrey, who held the first Loverboy fashion show in Milan this season. His signature blue and red check was adorned with rugby shirts, striped cardigans and yellow face paint. Recently appointed Etro creative director Marco de Vincenzo wore flamboyant, Savile Row-style suits, and Kenzo designer Nigo presented similarly smart plaids: three-button check blazers, slacks and coats adorned with shirts and checkered ties. But instead of the permanent replacement of Virgil Abloh, who had the most fun, it was KidSuper who guest-designed for Louis Vutton and sliced ​​the check to a triple effect.

It may not be a look for everyone, but the looks that show off their legs on the catwalks this season were not to be missed. At JW Anderson’s Milan fashion show, bare-legged models in fur lingerie and fur jackets outnumbered sports pants. Elsewhere, JordanLuca collaborated with JD Sports’ favorite Lonsdale to create layers of white panties underneath a butterfly-print dress. The frenzy engulfed Paris, too, at Lazoschmidl, which makes tight black trousers worn with hoodies and floral raincoats, and Ludovic de Saint Sernin, where logo underwear can be seen in white knit, body-hugging dresses.

They haven’t swept every collection, but Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons bet big on pointed collars at the Prada show in Milan. And if Miuccia and Raf see a trend, they always hit the money. Pradas were available in a variety of colorful pop shades with contrasting mohair paneling. The versatility was striking: tight blazers, knee-length coats and tight-fitting cardigans. How much will these snap-on collars sell for? That was the question that then swirled online. Consensus – around £500. If that seems teary-eyed, head to your nearest vintage store for an endless supply of oversized collared shirts. If you feel inclined to stick with the Prada look, just reach for the scissors.

One of Gucci’s closing looks set the mood—a sparkly silver singlet worn with dirty jeans, green monogrammed cowboy boots, and a blue beanie. Ludovic de Saint Sernin’s mesh, rhinestone-encrusted style has more of Dalston Superstore clubland appeal, while Dolce and Gabbana nailed the black-tie version: jet-shaded sequins, polo-neck vest, and matching, flowy pants. Maybe one for Timothée Chalamet this awards season?

Giorgio Armani’s gray and navy stripe knit came with a fluffy fur collar, while Paul Smith’s was an all-over cloak that caught the eye: maroon, orange and brown spots covered an almost floor-length poncho, doubled with a wide, matching poncho. folded. printed scarf.
