TAKING THE CUE FROM THE LATEST FASHION SHOWS, HERE WE RETRACE THE MOST “GREEN” CATWALKS IN THE RECENT HISTORY OF FASHION
The “natural” inspiration has often been emphasized by many designers, as Viktor & Rolf, with their clothes adorned with 3D tulle roses for Flower Collection back in 2003; or Alexander McQueen with his embellished jackets embroidered with real flowers for the spring/summer 2007; Maison Margiela presented instead transparent jackets embellished with fabric buds for the Artisanal Couture collection in 2013.
For the Dries Van Noten spring/summer 2015 show the Argentine artist Alexandra Kehayoglou created a 48-meter long carpet inspired by the forest of ”A Midsummer Night’s Dream“. Karl Lagerfeld instead, for the Chanel 2015 Couture collection, transformed the Grand Palais in Paris in a huge greenhouse full of colorful origami.
Floriculture left a mark even this year in the Spring/Summer 2016 catwalks, as for Opening Ceremony and Coach.
So – as the month in which Redmilk pays tribute to nature – we couldn’t think of a better time to revisit the most chic and most green fashion shows in the recent history of fashion!
