MINIMALISTS BEWARE: SPRING’S BEST COLLECTIONS COME IN EVERY POSSIBLE PATTERN AND SHADE OF THE RAINBOW. By Mackenzie Wagoner Somewhere over the rainbow, life beyond the mundanity of sheltering in place will resume in full spectrum. The question on every designer’s mind remains: when the time comes, what will we possibly wear? For the Spring 2021 collections, there was one resounding answer: all of it. If runways from New York to Paris are to be believed, oved it, couldn t wear it, will e a lament of ester ear. nstead, the first thaw of spring will usher in refreshingly optimistic technicolor dream clothes to slip on and, with any luck, take anywhere we’d like. n Milan, ierpaolo iccioli mi ht ver well have had oroth s first limpse of in mind for the hi h-octane oral prints that limmered across alentino s re ric road at Milan s onderia Macchi in the form of hoodies, utton downs and oor-len th sil dresses that too i ht in the open air. n fact, the loomin pattern was orrowed from alentino s own archives, namel a sin ular sweepin dress most famousl donned by Anjelica Huston in 1972, which Piccioli revived for the “radical romanticism” he’s prescribing for our reconnection to the outside world. If the silhouettes were pared-back iterations of familiar hits, the palettes were a la e. Across continents, ever one from hlo s atacha amsa - evi to Marni s rancesco isso eschewed complicated constructions and ash-in-the-pan ourishes in favor of pushing saturation to its limits.

Its sinuous bustiers and deftly-cut la ers were pieced to ether with patchwor honorin all of the var in cultures of Sicily, the birthplace of Domenico Dolce. Floral, polka-dotted and entirely madcap, each confectionary piece telegraphed one unmissable message: we’re that much more beautiful when we’re united.
