Krizia Robustella continued with the shows presenting ‘Miami Riot’, a fun collection that tells the story of a criminal gang having a holiday in Miami. Its fresh outfits show a clear inspiration in the 80s. Offering a striking show in which the models were covered with balaclavas, Robustella unveiled a colourful range that includes baggy ankle trousers and oversized padded-shoulder blazers for men and midi-skirts and padded T-shirts for women. 


The duo Zazo&Brull (Clara Brull and Javier Zazo) presented their new collection ‘RESET’. Far from the romantic and sinister trademark of the brand, they got inspired by the Native Americans image for this range. 


On her part, designer Natalie Capell presented ‘Viento’ (Wind), a collection of dresses and combinations of pieces in light fabrics, tulles and silks, as well as knitting, all in pale colours and with transparencies.
