Being one of the ‘big four’ cities of the fashion world, we are always excited to see what Milan has in store for Fashion Week. The Italians already have a lot in their favour, what with their much-loved cuisine, incredible artwork and tear-jerking operas. Their style is no exception. Italian fashion is luxurious, embellished, tailored and, quite simply, beautiful. Featuring brands such as Corneliani, Armani, Versace and Paul and Shark, we’re partial to a bit of Italian styling ourselves.
Here are are a few of our favourite shows, courtesy of vogue.co.uk…
It is widely agreed that for this collection, Missoni returned to their original style of simplicity and elegance. As always, Missoni took our breath away with ingenious colourways and feminine shapes. Long, billowing hemlines featured heavily on the catwalk as well as the traditional Missoni zig-zag stripe. That being said, the brand have clearly been playing with prints and patterns, with both wavy and thick block lines present in perfect co-ordination.
Previously stocked by Jules B, MSGM are a fashion favourite. This season saw a whole spectrum of patterns, from traditional checks to psychedelic retro shapes. Models donned chunky high-tops while simultaneously wearing long, flowing hemlines. Tassels added a fun element to the collection, featuring on dresses, skirts and handbags.
Emilio Pucci is the epitome of Italian style, combining traditional garments with modern patterns and cuts. This seasons collection saw a lot of blurred patterns, high neck-lines and metallic tones. Thong sandals were worn by models, some even featuring shearling details! As ever, the range was exploding with colours and experimental textures.
It wasn’t just the catwalks that had our heads turning in Milan.
