Sporty met the sweeter side at MSGM SS17, in a collection where flounced ruffles, juicy fruit prints and fresh florals collided with varsity stripes, drawstring pulls and vented netting. Massimo Giorgetti played with layering to juxtapose the two opposing sensibilities, with black and whites spliced with prints embracing rich, bold-hued colour palette. Sheath dresses and flounced skirts were worn over biker shorts, argyle sweaters over oversized shirting, and swishy zip-hemmed track pants given a fashion-forward upgrade in luxe neutral tones paired with crochet ruffled tanks that made us want to take to the tennis court. With mid-parted, sleek-downed hair and a slightly dewy glow, models donned the occasional dangling gold earring; carried utility-chic handbags wrapped in primary coloured netting and neon neoprene flats ready for running. “She loves to go fast,” said Giorgetti, who with two directional and want-worthy shows under his belt this Milan Fashion Week, shows no sign of slowing. MSGM takes up the white silk T-shirt classic with a notch by threading a black and orange floral scarf through metal eyelets on one side. If you don’t have one of these already, then your well-thought-out closet isn’t complete. There is simply no better way to complete your casual pieces with this entrance worthy style, which can be completed with dark wash jeans or MSGM’s feminine and supremely flattering – Midi skirt.
