MFW: total leather look for Tod’s and Bottega Veneta, Cavalli turns ups and down

Multicolored Marni fur, Perforated python leather dress for Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace’s ultra-versatile boots, Moschino biker jackets, Comics prints for Prada. The leather did not shy away from Milan Fashion Week. Tod’s and Bottega Veneta went even further making it the protagonist of their collections. Copious use of fringes, pairings of different leathers, exotic leathers to embellish the garments, as well as accessories and footwear. The iconic Tod’s moccasins featured fringes, skirts were in Cavallino, and trenches had python inset. Bottega Veneta’s dresses are instead in leather with metal eyelets on the Bottega Veneta; applications enriched clothing, belts, bags and shoes with calfskin, python and crocodile leather. He also left the sign of Roberto Cavalli’s parade, in which the founder again took the reins after Paul Surridge and Peter Dundas. The turning point was radical. The brand has abandoned eccentric and vivid prints to turn towards minimal and essential lines. The classic zebra pattern has become elegant on trench coats and coats, such as crocodile vest and leather bodysuits on delicate linear or full-bodied men’s dresses, worn with eastern-style slippers.
