Elsy introduced three themes for a/winter gay Paris, swinging London and snowy Russia. Vogue Bambini were styling the show and Pitti Bimbo’s own Anna Wintour, Giuliana Parabiago the editor-in-chief of Vogue Bambini marched around looking in control in her don’t-mess-with-me Moschino military coat.
There were berets for gay Paris, boho chic for London and fur and more fur for Russia. A tartan trouser suit looked very current and a plaid tweed coat with Macintosh details was dapper. Trousers were lacking, for swinging London boot cut plaid trousers were seen and snowy Russia introduced an unusual velour trouser suit. Skirts remained puffed, either with net or doubled fabric. Pinafore dresses were popular and so were tunics. Coats were mainly quilted or padded in mat colours.
Elsy seemed to believe that despite our cultural differences, we could unite in world peace for our love of plaid, which featured heavily in all three Cities themes.
