Alessandro Michele, for the much-discussed AW 2018 fashion show - where everyone's attention was captured by the set resembling an operating theatre, by the balaclavas, and especially by the fact that in a couple of outings the models held a reproduction of their own heads under their arms - plays with the work dress, the uniform of the '80s Italian yuppie, to reinvent it in a glamorous key, exaggerating with flounces, glitter, layers, asymmetries and oversizes.
