Dolce & Gabbana
The ex-Metropol cinema, fitted out by Studio Laviani, is the Dolce and Gabbana showspace, where they can make full use of the sets and in particular a giant platform that hydraulically raises models up to the catwalk.
In a giant white gallery space in the outside of Milan, Raf Simons called on lighting designer Thierry Dreyfus to bring him the sun, which he 'captured' within a void on the wall. The idea was to recreate summer sunlight, the hazy orange glow that kissed the models faces.
Gucci's venue is in an old cinema, which they've converted into a dedicated showspace. They change the interior each season- this time they used a runway of Namibian white marble bordered in black Marquiana, Plexiglas walls and benches covered in white drill with black piping.
Prada work with Rem Koolhaas’s OMA, who created a labyrinth from a proper Giardino Italiano or Italian Garden. Guests sat on green foam cubes arranged in a maze within a high fence, beyond the enclosure on the walls were projected digital images of a classical maze made of box cut hedges. The models walked through, prevented from getting lost thanks to large arrows painted on the raw concrete floor. A leveller as everyone got a front row seat.
And that's it!
