Drapers fashion director Ian Wright pulls out a trend that literally stood out this weekend
A lot has happened over the past three days. Block-busting names such as Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Trussardi and Salvatore Ferragamo have all taken their turn but elsewhere the more stand out direction was that which too texture to new heights. Designers had clearly been wearing their 3-D glasses, with Tomas Maier presenting all over ruffles at Bottega Veneta, Moschino a delicate but concentrated floral embellished dress, Jil Sander a tiered, feathery T-shirt, Emporio Armani a layered up petal jacket and, the piece de resistance, an incredible encrusted and bejewelled bomber and skirt combo. Not always dead commercial, but beautiful nonetheless.
