Designer Angela Missoni gives voice to human rights at Milan Fashio Week. Rough Cut - no reporter narration
NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Models at Missoni on Saturday closed the show strutting down the catwalk wearing pink knitted cat-eared hats, in a sign of support by designer Angela Missoni to the recent mass protests in the U.S against President Donald Trump. Their hats were the same used by women rallying in the U.S. and in Europe at the end of January against President Trump's rhetoric, considered to be misogynistic. The Italian designer also gave each one of her guests at the show a hat and invited them to wear it. The autumn and winter 2017 collection was inspired by Italy's Monte Rosa- the pink mountain - whose image dominated the industrial hangar space used as the setting of the show. Celebrity model Gigi Hadid opened a show full of muticoloured and layered looks, typical of the fashion house, with a bright tartan long coat. Models followed in long cardigans with geometric prints, pleated light trousers matched with heavier jumpers and sleeveless fur coats over knitted skirts. For the evening, Missoni imagined fitted dresses with a metallic sheen. With the clothes, models wore coloured boots, kitten heels and glittered or metallic leather pumps. Some carried long furry or woollen scarves.
