Suzy Menkes at Milan Fashion Week: Day Two
26 Февраля 2015
A meld of sport and chic in a single mesh dress tells the story of Lee Wood, who has just appeared from under the radar with his L72 line after 16 years embedded with Donatella Versace.
“It’s sporty — the way I dress and people on the street — but I am bringing to that a couture feeling,” says Wood in Milan, where he’s showing complete collections of womenswear and menswear with shoes and accessories too. There is no equivalent of the Versace Medusa head to fire up the brand — just a discreet rendition of Lee’s ‘L’, with a graphic letter built in at the shoulder or in a Perspex heel shape. He shows me a kimono jacket and streamlined dress in a technical sport-net sneaker fabric made by Panatex, which manufactures hi-tech textiles.
And everything is Italian. “I am championing ‘Made in Italy’,” says the British-born designer, whose whose home and heart is in Milan — and maybe a little with Donatella whom, he says, has been his greatest supporter.
