Heads and dragons at GucciAlessandro Michele has outdone himself this season with a runway complete with models holding their own heads and baby dragons. The life-like models, which took six months to make, along with the operating room setting, may have been a creepy addition to the fashion presentation, but were a completely genius move for the social media-savvy brand. The show, which Michele called Cyborg, was a commentary on the idea “we are the Dr Frankenstein of our lives”, said Michele. 
Fendi x FILASilvia Venturi Fendi described the latest Fendi collection as “a romantic uniform for a strong and powerful woman of today”, but in and among the strong feminine tailoring, Fendi gave a nod to street culture with a collaboration with well-known streetwear brand Fila. Plush sweatshirts and bags were emblazoned with a Fendi logo with a Fila twist. The updated Fendi logo, which borrows the iconic Fila “F”, was created by pop-culture artist Hey Rilley.
D&G does dronesDolce & Gabbana’s latest Fashion Devotion collection opened with an unexpected model – a line of drones holding this season’s latest D&G handbags – that’s one way to shine a light on your next must-have accessory. Could this perhaps be the future of the runway show?
VersaceThe 1980s are definitely the decade of the season with Versace following suit with a 1980s glamour collection of electric primary-colour, pop prints, strong shoulders, waist cinching miniskirts and boldly printed leggings. After last season’s iconic tribute to Gianni Versace, Donatella strikes again with a collection inspired by the Versace archives.
Moncler Genius collaborationsThe puffer jacket made its way back into fashion a few seasons ago and clearly has no intentions of leaving. Down jacket apparel brand, Moncler is leveraging the reignited obsession with the puffer by creating a unique collaboration with the eight globally recognised designers including Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino, Simone Rocha and Craig Green. Pierpaolo Piccioli’s take on the winter staple featured floor-sweeping puffer dresses and capes in irresistible, bold colours.
