Sixties mod made a comeback in Sportmax’s spring/summer 2016 collection, presented during Milan Fashion Week. Geometric patterns and bold colors of orange and yellow contrasted with navy, white, and black, and were paired with chunky sandals and plastic, oversized sunglasses. There were bell-sleeves to match bell-bottoms and pinafores to bring you back to your schoolyard days. Fresh for spring were crisp shirts and shirtdresses, true to Sportmax form, but accessorized with large wrapped belts and tote bags. Swing capes and trapeze silhouettes opened the show, leading into longer streamlined frames towards the end.
This all took place at Milan’s Palazzo delle Poste, an early 20th century, now-defunct post office designed by Luigi Broggi. Transformed by Formafantisma to have a futuristic look, models walked down a golden PVC runway, with more PVC suspended from the ceiling.
