In his second women's runway line, Massimo Giorgetti's MSGM label saw its muse grow from a young ironic city girl to a sophisticated European woman -- alas still with a few quirks.
A stunning color palette of rich red, eggplant and deep sea blue-green and avant-garde textures validated the collection, despite some more playful aspects like furry and tasseled moccasin slippers for night and day.
Spatulated tempera paint that seemed like it had yet to dry completely was imposed on neoprene sweatshirts adorned with MSGM's rose motif.
Dropped shoulder shift dresses and dress suits were fashioned with marbled jacquard fabrics that recalled the glaze on clay quality of Oribe Japanese pottery.
Similar iridescent marbling effects that called to mind the multi-colored swirls of an oil-slick were employed onto ankle-length pants, blouses and jackets.
In a fall winter 2014 collection that obfuscated the roles between night and day, Giorgetti demonstrated his ability to pull off a more grown up collection.
"I abandoned the idea of the sweatshirt. It was dear to me, but I am trying to evolve myself," he said backstage before the show.
Certainly not a protagonist of the show, the sweatshirt did make a few cameos.
Ending the runway lineup with some food for thought, men and women modeled simple sweatshirts with "More to live than this" emblazoned on the sleeves.
And with that, Giorgetti sprinted a full lap around the runway to a roaring applause.
Watch the show!
