hellomagazine.com

In contrast to the pyrotechnics of Jeremy Scott at Moschino, and the glitzy, global Renaissance Meets Studio 54 mood of Gucci, Donatella Versace's autumn/winter 2016/17 collection was a study in slick sporty urban-wear.

And who better to showcase it than the super-fit cast of 21st century "supers", including Gigi Hadid (who opened and closed), Kendall Jenner, and Karlie Kloss.

The athletic vibe was heightened by the thin, elastic head-bands, low on the forehead; the speed stripe detailing and zippered sock-boots; and the occasional flash of well-toned abs in a cropped top underneath a tailored coat or jacket, featuring ergonomic panels and more zips to reveal or conceal.

Hemlines were super-short, often emphasised with a wavy or chevron prints. Colour invaded via a hot-pink, embossed biker jacket, rainbow-hue intarsia furs, and slinky shifts in metallic and sequins with shards of neon colour, zig-zagging down the dresses like bolts of, lightning.

Earlier, Sportmax opened Day 3 of Milan Fashion Week with a collection that riffed on the stripe theme of sister company, MaxMara, but with a Moroccan Twist.

And Bulgari revealed its new 'Viper' bag (even more delicious than than the canapés at its Bulgari Hotel launch), and we caught a glimpse of the equally gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the brand's new "face".
