MFW SS16: Cristiano Burani

What do you get when you take a chunk of ‘60s, a dash of the ‘70s, a slight sprinkle of ‘90s streetwear and a whole lot of colour? Cristiano Burani’s SS16 collection. It was an eye opening blend of the 20th century into modern fashion while being ever so slightly futuristic, innovative and fun.


The vibe of the entire collection was vibrant, light-hearted and colourful. There was a youthful tone throughout the collection, even coming through in the styling of the models hair and the choice of cowboy boots on the runway.



One of the showstoppers of the collection was a fringe like technique Burani used in the majority of the pieces in the middle of the show. It was sort of taking a look at a dress that was dripping in fringe and making it a more subtle technique. Even using it to create a polka dot or weave pattern on a number of pieces.

This collection spanned a wide range of tones and styles but it seems to revolve around a young sort of cool girl that has a moderate obsession with the past and brings it through in her style while still trying to be modern. It’s a fun concept and ready to be worn right off the runway.
