Aigner A/W 11/12: Milan fashion week

7 Mar

If Etienne Aigner’s autumn/winter collection didn’t have quite the je ne sais quoi that the 70s-fuelled spring/summer showing had, it was a neatly rounded look all the same,  with more subtle 70s references via longer lengths and new proportion play.

The look: Urban rustic

Silhouette: Elongated and subtly 70s

Key items: The longer dirndl or soft full A-line skirt, best in soft leather, was a key piece to tie back to the collection’s soft, feminine blouses or waist-grazing cropped jackets – a perfect outerwear item to team with Aigner’s signature 70s-style pants. Elsewhere it was all about the classic DB camel coat layered over mannish trousers, a crisp midi-length military coat in guardsman red, waisted full-skirt dresses tethered with calfskin belts and plush fur gilets, cocooning fur coats and a throw-on plush-touch capelet

Colour: A rich rustic palette of camel, pine, damson, bark browns and guardsman red offset with black and winter white

Fabric & knit: Leather and cashmere, country checks, satin and fur, silk faille, nubby tweeds and velvet made this collection a tactile affair

Print & pattern: A singular black and white abstract print worked into a soft shirt; woven plaid

Details & trims: Flat self bows at the waist of skirts, black velvet ribbon ties

Footwear: High-cut platform ankle boots in high-shine leather, calfskin or leopard print

Accessories: Hand-held boxy bags, envelope bags with long shoulder straps, fur bags with chain handles, calfskin belts and long leather gloves
