RUNWAY: Ports 1961 FW16Fashion week is getting longer and longer. From London to Florence to Milan to Paris to New York. Now Milan is kicking off its fashion week a day early, causing a bit of consternation from editors and buyers who need to transport to Milan from Florence. Nevertheless, those who made it back were treated to a supermodel bonanza at Ports 1961. Milan Vukmirovic brought with him his chiseled and hard-bodied friends to walk in the show, including Chad White who opened, and Instagram-celebrity Lucky Blue Smith.
As for the collection, it was well made with some great pieces. Coats, especially, were exceptional while sportswear felt scattered with many references and accoutrements that were a bit showy, like the fringe-belt-cum-fanny-pack. There were also African prints and influences from Japan to add to the jumble.
