Byblos Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW – Milan Fashion Week

The Byblos brand is an interesting one, dating back to the late 1970s and having been known for marking the turning point in the history of the company from 1981, onwards to 1996. Alan Cleaver and Keith Varty worked together in Italy to put together a house that would be unique and special, and brought in the youthful touch needed to make the company great. With a younger audience in sight, the label would begin to really grow in the world, until it was clear to the world as a whole that the creative directors opted for products that are saleable and with the right fabric to them, looking fresh every season.

Byblos Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Milan Fashion Week

Colors are the best part of the brand, as the duo really has an eye for combining hues that create a masterpiece through it all. Those two were the third in line for the company though, as Gianni Versace had been the first and today we see Manuel Facchini heading that ship. He is a man who studies at the prestigious Central Saint Martins and launched his eponymous label with his debut fall and winter collection in 2015.

In the Byblos fall/winter 2016-2017 collection seen today on the Milan Fashion Week runway, we can easily say the combination of rock and gothic and sports never looks so good before. Whether we owe that to the black dresses that reach a few inches above the knee with their transparent paneling or the color fusions of purple, pink and black on those textured and patterned skirts with the matching Victorian necked sweaters, we can be sure that the designer knows exactly what he is doing as the ladies walk out in their splendid creations.

Throughout the collection, we see skirts and we see denim, we see reds and blues and whites and blacks and a whole slew of interesting factors. We notice there are both high necks and plunging ones, asymmetrical skirts and pleated versions, multi-layered concoctions or simple and sweet cheerleader outfits. After all, it is the rock and gothic joining in with the sporty here, which also makes for some really interesting dresses that come with miniskirts and pleats and slimming patterns.

We see floral pieces with some awesome satin lined jackets in the mix, while there is a certain rainbow celebration that we might associate with gay pride when we look at he sheer polka dotted pieces that come onto stage. The use of colors extends to the makeup as well, with rosy cheeks, pink lips and beautifully shadowed lids leading to some pretty darling looks. The shoes, however is where a line is crossed, as we simply cannot find the beauty in double strapped hairy slider flats… that one is an impossible obstacle to overcome.
