Iceberg Mens F/W 2015.16 Milan Whoever said that skipping the catwalk show in favor of a presentation is akin to a downsizing? That’s the general perception in the fashion world, where appearance trumps substance by default, but it was not the case for Federico Curradi, whose Iceberg collection greatly benefited from the lack of runway action. The presentation was held in a magnificent Milanese palazzo, which was a joy in itself with its wrought stuccos and painterly mosaics. This was the first time Curradi has chosen to stage a presentation, and it was a smart move, bringing the audience close to the clothes, with the option to touch them. In contrast, Iceberg’s previous shows under Curradi’s tenure had a militaristic, urban tone that was occasionally slightly off-putting. Perhaps he has finally found his own stylistic balance for the house, highlighted by the tight final edit.
