MSGM A/W 2017
Mood board: From the Queen of England to the skate film Lords of Dogtown, MSGM’s Massimo Giorgetti uses an eclectic range of influences for inspiration, and for his A/W 2017 women’s collection, the designer delved into David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. Evoking the graphic carpet of the surrealist ‘Red Room’ scenes in the 1990 television series, models strode a black and white striped diagonal runway while colours and prints in the collection threw up a cacophony of references to the show. Shadowy pine forest prints on knits and dresses echoed the eerie woodland scene of its opening credits, a red tailored suit reflected the clothing worn by the hallucinatory ‘Man from Another Place’, while hovering bird of prey embellishments echoed Agent Cooper’s sightings of crows, while investigating a murder at the logging town.
Best in show: A series of rose-detail knitted dresses had a retro après-ski appeal, while an oversized pinstripe coat had enduring wardrobe status, Twin Peaks obsessive or not.
Finishing touches: For his A/W 2017 menswear show, Giorgetti wrapped the heads of models in scarves inspired by HRH The Queen, a detail he continued in his womenswear offering, pairing looks ranging from shearling jackets to checkerboard knits with colourful printed headscarves.
