If you were inspired by New York, and excited by London, we have to tell you, Milan brought its fashion a game. Known for its exaggerated approach to fashion, here are the collections from MFW we oooh’ed and ahhhh’ed over.
For its 50th anniversary show, Bottega Veneta had an array of muted, solid-coloured outfits consisting of jackets with exaggerated shoulders, cinched in waists and lots of shiny silver buttons.
Dolce & Gabbana shied away from their usual glam looks with t-shirts underneath suits and sheer skirts. We also loved the cocktail lace on the 40’s style dress (and that crown!).
Known for their colourful, abstract prints, Emilio Pucci showed us monochrome coats and dresses and twin sets in bright colours.
Fendi can do no wrong. Especially with its cheeky crop-tops, striped satin skirts and paper-bag trousers.
Shades of blue in a modernist setting with sequin jackets and metallic suits, Girogio Armani took us (very elegantly) into outer-space.
We love Gucci, for all things ruffled, flared, pleated and embroidered. The latest show was no different, with a series of incredible pieces on a red velvet runway.
Jil Sander’s use of mini-pleats in maximized silhouettes created a beautiful contrast. Also, the single tones meant that bags matched skirts, tops and dresses, and we loved it.
Marni’s range had elongated sleeves, puffed-up bags on belts and gorgeous slits in knee-length skirts. The dimension and stiffness within the garments meant that although there was only one hue used, it was still eye-catching.
Tropical foilage print met disco-style high-wasited trousers and pencil skirts, along with sporty visors at Max Mara.
Forever taking a playful approach to fashion, Moschino had models in paper-dress style garments sashay down the runway in illustrated and elaborate ballgowns.
Mix stripes, pleats, ruffles and cool-toned blues and greens, and you’ll get (my favourite collection of things) and also the MSGM show. We loved everything, especially the chunky shoes.
Romantic and soft baby-pink satins and white lace contrasted with black mesh and sequins made up No. 21‘s collection, with the addition of a couple of waist bags and some bow-tipped shoes.
Only Prada, at the height of fashion, could combine fluffy collars, cuffs and hems layered over and under sheer dresses and shirts with oriental-inspired two piece suits and geek-style sandals.
