MSGM Autumn/Winter 2019 AW19 collection

Bringing together a conceptual art magazine and the bubblegum clothing of 1980s rom-coms in one fashion collection might seem like a tenuous pursuit, yet MSGM creative director Massimo Giorgetti managed to do just that for his A/W19 show, staged in Milan last week. “From the beginning, I’ve thought about this collection like a movie,” he tells AnOther of his design approach. “I grew up in the 80s, when fashion in films was so powerful.

In a sultry revisitation of 90s silhouettes, Paul Andrew’s second womenswear offering at Salvatore Ferragamo saw sheeny turquoise satin, luxe chestnut and black leather wrought in utilitarian shapes – button-up overcoats and dungarees.
