Milan Fashion Week FW23 Day 4: Zegna, Giorgio Armani, Dhruv Kapoor

DHRUV KAPOOR

For fall winter 23-24, Dhruv Kapoor presented a collection that could be translated into a transformative and juxtaposed alchemy of the self. Entitled “The Embracer,” the collection intertwines tradition and contemporaneity, romanticism and realism, as well as a bit of modernism.

The pieces denote a range of unusual combinations of colors, patterns, textures, and proportions that blend naturally and harmoniously creating a functional and appealing aesthetic: tailored asymmetrical cuts, sporty slouchy pants, oversize jumpsuits to frayed denim.

Finally, another highlight of the collection was the special collaboration with Toho’s iconic Godzilla. Reflecting that alchemy and transformation, the designer draws a relationship between Godzilla’s monstrosity and human alter-ego, showing how the iconic kaiju reflects that way of embracing, protecting, and renewing our essence. The unisex collection juxtaposes oversized draped shirts with kimono-style shirts with comic motifs, huge structured anoraks, and sweaters with a strong personality through a wide range of prints and lines.

ZEGNA

Presenting during the fourth day of fashion week, Sartori presented the Zegna collection entitled “The Oasi of Cashmere”, a line in which he highlighted the beauty of the relationship between style and technicality: in the use of cashmere as 70 percent of the collection was made with cashmere and 20 percent included cashmere blended with other fabrics. It also stands out in the layering and tonalities, starting with gray suits, passing through earth tones, and closing with looks in canary yellow and mustard tones.

Giorgio Armani

Style is timeless, and reaching out to an increasingly younger audience does not imply giving up one’s essence, this was demonstrated by Giorgio Armani’s collection. The theme of the collection is inspired by the atriums of the noble palaces of Milan, reflecting through that reference a color palette of colors and pieces with cuts and textures, such as cashmere, alpaca, velvets and new design drapery, with a touch of high tailoring that reflects the DNA of elegance that characterizes the designer. Complementing the fantasy of the palace, the show featured sophisticated background music courtesy of Ludovico Einaudi.
