An incredible post-modern and futuristic atmosphere is the set-up of the #PLEINPUNK show at Milan ́s Social Music City. An enormous Globe of Death at the entrance sets the mood of the show, with six stuntmen making acrobatic jumps and turns in the location. In the center of the runway more than 65 destroyed cars colored in gold and silver gave the feeling of an art installation. Right before the model ́s entrance a flaming car appeared and drove fast around the set followed by two vintage police cars like a classic chase scene from a movie. American Hip-Hop sensation Tyga kicks off the show performing his hit : Rack City.

Peter Jensen Resort 2016 Collection

You have to go way back to find a moment when mega-bombshell Scarlett Johansson remotely resembled the off-beat women that Peter Jensen has built a career on, but he’s found it. Turns out his muse is not so much Birch herself, but the film that started her rise to fame – 2001’s Ghost World, the story of two high-school graduates (Thora Birch’s Enid and Johansson’s Rebecca) pouring scorn on the small town they live in. That sounds more like Jensen, and the results are appropriately quirky and charming.

You could describe it as substance, and my work is transforming that substance – Joseph Beuys. Aldo Maria Camillo looked to the work of the artist Joseph Beuys as the inspiration for the new Cerruti 1881 Paris collection – Beuys as an industrious shamanic figure, imbued with deep-seated pragmatism, and an unstoppable desire to transform. He gleans Beuys’ creative spirit, along with his penchant for nourishing and protective fabrics and a vibrant conciseness.

If we then pair them with gabardine trousers – long or Bermudas – we’ll be ready for even the very hottest weekend in summer. Pale blue, white and green with a touch of grey are, as always, the most appropriate colours. Make sure everything has a slightly crumpled air to be sure you won’t risk looking too formal.

Benetton Presents The Spring-Summer 2011 Women's Collection

ARMY LOVERS - The rigour of military clothing is softened by romantic, ultra-feminine touches. This creates a look that marries two very different but mutually attractive worlds. The key fabric is cotton, all kinds of cotton: gabardine, canvas and jersey for outerwear are turned into trench coats, multi-pocket jackets and parkas. Cotton teamed with linen, silk and viscose creates blouses and shirts, T-shirts, dresses, trousers and skirts. A variety of weights, volumes and layering is instrumental in taking the edge off the basic theme.

The lightness of the muslins and the seemingly random layering of jersey and ultra-fine knitted sweaters offer the appropriate compromise to help us accept this contrast of two styles united to tell a single story. The palette centres around powdery shades of pinks, greens and greys. Optical white ensures occasional flashes of light.

Undercolors of BENETTON Spring/Summer 2010 Collection

With a touch of originality, Undercolors of Benetton focuses on the moments of the day that bring a feeling of being at ease, at home or on the beach.

PICNIC The leisurely atmosphere of an afternoon spent relaxing is shown in the prints, fabrics and colours which create a range of romantic, simple, comfortable styles as only Undercolors can. Jersey fabrics are covered in tiny floral prints and embellished with lace and frills. Clingy vests and shorts barely hide themselves under comfortable cotton jersey and viscose tops and roomy trousers, perfect for homewear. Flashes of red or denim blue illuminate delicate shades.

HIP TRIBE Colour leads this theme. Prints and touches of lace leave the romantic road to introduce a vaguely provocative, rather cheeky note. Cottons for vests, bras and shorts; glossy, shiny fabrics for short slips and printed co-ordinates. He adapts to the situation but with a more tongue-in-cheek approach through a new twist to the classic gingham check and tiny prints on boxer shorts.
