Stick to your roots. Genny chose to show a collection that immediately harked back to the Italian brand’s happiest season. But you also have to look ahead, so the glory days were blended with influences from the cutting-edge ‘20s. White dominated the runway, with soft trousers in the purest tint an early highlight. Jackets were lapel-less but rigorous in the shoulders, softened by transparencies or fluid length. Sheaths gave way to draped dresses whose bare shoulders lent a cheeky Greek goddess edge, despite the sleeve cuffs. In addition to all the white, there was also gold and silver, as well as dazzling details and metallic colours. Following a touch of black and a dash of bronze, a bold emerald green fil coupé dress featured graphics inspired by art deco artist Sonia Delaunay.
