It's fair to say that Milan isn't known for its underground scene. Even saying such a thing would invite the question: is there one? Last ready-to-wear season, the up and coming designer Arthur Arbesser assured us that yes, there was - you just had to know upon which doors to knock.

If ever there’s a designer to turn any connotations of crochet on its head and, you know, make it cool, it’s Jonathan Anderson. The wunderkind designer – who also works as the creative director at Loewe when he’s not creating his namesake brand – went all fuzzy and warm on us for his Autumn/Winter 2017 collection, one that had a hint of Harry Potter about it, too.
