Milan Fashion Week
Milan Fashion Week has been and gone and here are some of the trends that graced the runway.
Milan Fashion Trends
The late 60s and early 70s has been floating around the fashion world for some time, but Milan perfected to 1970 to 1971.
MaxMara named the classic Italian film from the 70s, Garden of the Finzi Continis and the labels own Angelica Huston ads from 71, but Gucci sealed the trend with their vision.
The runways presented the trend with lots of denim and suede, A-line skirts or a flare below high waists, buttons, bold collars, a chunky sandal and a long strapped shoulder bag.
The belt inspiration for next season is raffia tied around a bunch of flowers. Checked coats were cinched in with generous amounts of fringed black leather or with integral self-ties that belted loose dresses at Sportmax and also seen at Emporia Armani.
Jackets and Coats
Milan Fashion Week surprised us with coats and jackets being the stars of the show.
Prada had the most extreme coats and jackets that were detailed; top stitched and buttoned up from the neck to the knee.
At Bottega Veneta, Missoni, Salvatore Ferragamo and MaxMara the featured shapes were the duster coat, the deconstructed trench and the 70s safari jacket.
There is always one trend that is perfect for everyone and next season it’s about Normcore hair.
When it comes to the catwalk, hair is usually in some sort of style that requires blow dry and hot rollers. At Sportmax and Prada hair was flat, in a ponytail and with wisps coming out at the front like after you have been caught in the wind.
Milan is the home of glamour, so it’s no surprise that sparkle was put back into fashion despite the Normcore trend.
At Prada there was brocade and applique at Dolce & Gabbana where jeans were studded with coloured crystals.
Versace really brought the sparkle with short dresses that were made from panels of Swarovski crystals.
The flat shoe is the choice for the past few seasons and in Milan flats were luxe and ornate. There were crystal studded pool sliders from Fausto Puglisi and bejewelled sandals that were embellished with intricate golden hearts at Dolce & Gabbana.
