POEM TO LONDON
Held in one of London’s most iconic landmarks, The Cloisters in Westminster Abbey, the Cruise 2017 collection was Alessandro Michele’s ode to British culture and aesthetics. Flowers from English gardens were on diaphanous silk chiffon dresses and embroidered onto bags; King Charles Spaniels appeared on check skirts, and the Union Jack in sweatshirts and metallic loafers.
“I love the English aesthetic; I feel it is close to my own language. The collection is like a little poem to London. I have tried to put into it some of the pieces in my heart when I think about London: Victorian, schoolboy, crazy young noble guys and some romantic punk.”
