Under Marten’s eye, Diesel affirms a deep understanding of the brand’s bygone cool factor while incorporating it deftly into his own surreal and visionary design language. ‘Jean-ius’, as Mark Wittmer quite rightly titled this stand-out show.
New to Milan’s showdown: Yoon Ahn’s Ambush summoned her know-how in the vocabulary and image-work it takes to build a recognizable and recognizably cool brand, which resulted in peak-media moments that took over socials. Putting the fun – and frenzy- back into fashion, Sunnei, whose eclectic lineup was given a literal test run, models sprinting past the audience showcasing both the performative and literal performance of their brand identity.
So good we’ve included them in both our Top 10 and Other 10, Daniel Del Core, whose third seasonal collection continues to showcase design talent way beyond his years.
