For Alta Sartoria, the offerings were gilded and glamorous. A series of intricately feathered t-shirts opened the show at the Palazzo Vecchio and the louche, luxe dressing gown was a recurring theme—sometimes finished with fur trims and jewels. Tapestry prints abounded and like the women’s show, the collection played with the idea of Italian archetypes, from the prince to the peasant, the dandy to the knight. The abundance of robes and pyjamas made this collection a fantasy wardrobe rooted in our current stay-home realities.
