Shape first and foremost. Gabriele Colangelo designed a rigorous collection in the vein of his minimalist aesthetic. The ingredients were traditionally menswear fabrics, patterns and colours – pinstripe, micro and macro check, cotton, navy and sky blue – producing a variation on the theme of the rectangle that was softened on the female body while exploiting the softness of wool and cashmere. The unconventional results included a panel of fabric draped over the shirt shoulder, skirts and high-waist trousers with visible stitching, three-dimensional geometry inserted into pleats, body-con dresses and shirts tied like an apron. The rectangle motif was also emphasised by cuts or a stole placed on the sleeves, on shirts or on high neck jumpers. The same shape applied to an overcoat created cloaks, sheepskin, oversize coats and furs.
