Misterfox, AW 71/72

He designed for 5 different fashion houses, creating a united line,
and began working with the FTM group for distribution.
He definitively ceased presenting at Pitti and decided to put on a show
in Milan in April in the Sala Oro at the Circolo del Giardino,
presenting the men’s and women’s collection for AW 1971-72.

Basile: jackets / Escargots: pullovers / Callaghan: jersey knitwear / 
Misterfox: evening wear and suits / Diamant’s: shirts

Italian prêt-a-porter was born.

Collection with many black outfits and touches of fluorescent colours,
cuts and proportions inspired by the 1930’s and American films of that era. 
A huge success with press and buyers.

Walter Albini was the first to be able to put together an experiment…
to put five collections together on a single platform.

Il Tempo, 28 April

It’s not to create controversy that I haven’t presented collections in Florence,
but because it is impossible to give the idea of my whole style on a communal catwalk.

Walter Albini, Il Giorno, 11 May 1972
