Les Copains Ready To Wear Fall Winter 2015 Milan

Stefania Bandiera, Les Copains new creative director, gave the international fashion crowd a tutorial, in an Italian signora sort of way, on how the right accessories can upgrade any outfit. In this case, how rhinestone earrings, blinding necklaces and Art Deco-inspired dragonfly brooches can parlay wool knitwear into gala-fit evening wear. 

Set in the chandelier-dripping, golden-corniced baroque halls of Palazzo Clerici in Milan, Bandiera, the wife of the brand's founder, Mario, opted for ultra-polished feminine looks fit for the upper-crust. 

Seventies flare pants were paired with easy-to-wear cardigans, mini-sweaters and short trench-coats. Tactile basket-stitching and cable-knit techniques and raw-looking cashmere and alpaca yarns gave the lineup a sense of warmth. Shimmery satin argyle gowns played on the British sartorial influence that has infused women's wear collections worldwide this season. 

Timeless pieces like tunic dresses, floor-length balloon skirts and sequined maxi-cardigans were just a few of the items that offered the collection immense commercial potential. 

Overall, fall/winter 2015 was one of the most aesthetically-striking collections we have seen from Les Copains in quite a while. After sailing without a captain for several seasons, Les Copains had a short dalliance with Graeme Black, who left after only one show. The brand then promoted Mrs. Bandiera, who seems to have a deep understanding of the brand's clientele. This collection hinted that she might be around for a while and that the fashion crowd might have a growing appetite for her chic, Italian Signora tutorials.
