That's a wrap on another fashion filled week in Milan, but what happened this season as we celebrated the latest from our favourite luxury brands as they showcased their new collections?
This is a quick re-cap of our favourite collection, top trends and eye-catching looks from this Season so far.
When looking back at the Milan shows, it was clear that some labels, like Moschino and Versace, leaned heavily into their archives in terms of notable trends and styles. Whilst others, like Ferragamo and Jil Sander, experimented with new silhouettes and fabrics.
The Long-Awaited Gucci Show was ofcourse, highly anticipated this season with all eyes on Sabato De Sarno, the relatively unknown designer who took over at Gucci earlier this year.
Not only did a calibre of stars turn out both on the runway and in front row, but we saw the show open with a fabulous series of black and white short suits and mini shift dresses, with the whole collection focused on clean lines and sleek silhouettes. While Michele was known for his kooky, granny-chic designs, De Sarno offered a more overt sexiness with tiny bra tops, micro mini skirts and very short shorts. So with this new sense of direction for the luxury brand, it will be interesting to hear and see how the Gucci customer reacts to this new sense in direction for next Season.
Another notable luxury brand which made waves this Season in Milan was The Dolce & Gabbana show which was an ode to women of all ages and sizes. For inspiration, the designers looked to their most fervent female clientele and we loved this inclusive approach to their silhouettes as they embrace made-to-order lines.
They included lots of great references to the 90s through their collection, which of-course was kicked off by Kim Kardashian two seasons ago. From hints of lingerie as outwear, largely black colour tones and defined oversized tailoring to really encapsulate that 'look' she so famously icons. What we loved about this collection was that these pieces really allow you to stand out and style them in a way that suits your silhouette, showing that's its not about age or size, but personality.
Moving more towards sorbet coloured palettes and chequerboard inspired patterns, Versace's collection saw iconic supermodels take the runway with a touch of sweetness. The collection presented a shared wardrobe that felt like a cementation of the times we’ve been living through lately. After a pastel-clad Barbiecore summer of bubblegum-chewing Gen Zs and the generations in their wake, Versace’s girlie skirt-suits and cartoon tailoring were a walking manifesto to the zeitgeist.
Notable names on the runway included Claudia Schiffer who closed the show, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Imaan Hamman amongst other beautiful models.
Thanks to designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s inspiration – his birthplace in Naples - a 'ones to watch' label you defiantly did not want to miss this season was also the N0.21 show.
From semi-sheer cocktails, slip dresses, lingerie looks, and layered knitwear Alessandro inspired us all with his playful designs and neutral tones. We loved these playful silhouettes which really embrace the beauty and femininity of the modern women, whilst also allowing one to filled empowered and confident through these bold yet chic styles.
