This is not the stage of Twin Peaks but MSGM AW17/18 womanswear show though. And the dramatic zigzag kind of pattern isn’t the only pattern in the collection, you can also see checkerboard, forest print, floral shape all over the whole collection in vibrant blocking colours. Lace, see through tulle, pinstripe, ruffle, oversized silhouette, colourful faux fur, and more trends are all involved. Are we surprised? Not really. Carrying out the spirit of Italian fashion, perhaps “less is never more” for MSGM. And that is beauty of Italian fashion!
The trend to watch from the show is “the Queen” style, head scarf fashion. I wouldn’t say it’s a brand new style and you probably have seen it somewhere else from last season too but when MSGM put it on the stage then we know it must be very something next season!
Highlight of the show to me is the vibrant uni colour suits. Go for it and be the head tunner.
One of my favourite parts from the show and from my personal experience is the stage and the show design. The stage of the show is as powerful on photos as in reality. And I am talking about normal photos, not just the professional ones. There are so many shows look great in person but just seem plain on photos or completely impossible to be photographed without professional equipments and the time gap in between models is just perfect. It’s enough time to space out the models without looking crowded and not too long that it might look empty in photos and videos. This might sound odd but in this current world, the influence from “not so professional” social media might be more powerful than the “professional” people would like it to be. If you have been to a few shows, you would probably understand that the first hand photos and videos that spread out on social media are made from audience seats of the catwalk not from the perfect angel that is set for the show photographers. There are few shows just quite impossible to look good on photos taken from the seats but this is totally not the case here in MSGM show. They might not do it on purpose but it was perfect setting for the audience to share their first hand experience.
Love patterns on patterns on patterns, perhaps “less is not always more” in fashion.
Headscarf on. Get The Queen style, be the fashion queen.

show was taken place with a more classic setting in a traditional building. The collection was inspired by Aesop’s Fables which you can see from some embroideries applied on roll neck sweater, dresses etc. You still can see the key trends carry out from last autumn winter. See through tulles, pyjamas style, colourful furs, animal print, vinyl kind of material, belt on jackets/coats and etc are involved which is a good news for the consumers. In fashion world nowadays, the trends never go away in just a season, even the the most snobby fashion house will follow the IT trends for commercial purposes. If you play it well, you can easily get pieces with discounted price end of this winter and be fashionable next autumn winter.
I actually would wear almost everything I see from the show and it’s quite hard for me to pick the favourites style. But if I am choosing one as trend to watch for me, I would say it’s the faux fur or shearling casually hanging on shoulder of the pyjamas look with a knotted belt. A luxurious upgrade of the pyjamas trend.
Cute little story telling embroideries.
Give your pyjamas set a luxurious touch for AW2017/2018.
