(Milan fashion week - John Richmond) Architectural shouldersWorld | 17 Jun 2019 7:02 pm
The John Richmond collection at Milan fashion week featured architectural shoulders for her, accented by a cinched waist and flowing, pleated trousers for undulating movement.
She might add a skin-tight tattoo top that designer John Richmond said was “a montage of iconography, with rings and Bowie and all kinds of things.”
There were slinkier looks for evening, including a sequined snake slithering suggestively over the shoulder.
Richmond has an eye on sustainability in his broader collection, and says it is easier to find eco-polyester. The looks in stores - not on the runway - will include reused vintage.
Part of the philosophy includes using footwear that is on the market. Here, Richmond collaborated with Converse for men’s high-tops finished in sequins and studs with snakes or JR insignia.
Richmond has been relaunching his historic brand after losing control in a business dispute for two seasons. He says it is now growing each season and as part of his latest chapter, he plans to open stores in Milan and Dubai this year
