Trends You Need To Try From Milan Fashion Week SS17
Top 5 shows
Moschino’s see-now, buy-now runway show was quintessentially Jeremy Scott with its pill-printed pieces, polka dots and puffed ruffles. Two-tone evening gowns in vintage silhouettes closed the final half of the show. Gloves and the illusion of three-dimensional ensembles lent a fairytale vibe to the whole affair. A white Marilyn Monroe dress and a gown topped off with a giant pink 2-D bow can only begin to describe the pure visual treat seen on the ramp.
Alessandro Michele’s runway was replete with dreamy elements like ruffles, sequins, stripes and stars. Although the trademark Gucci eccentricity was visible through the show, the ‘Hollywood Forever Cemetery’ references were an unexpected, arcane delight. The seemingly hedonistic fur-lined loafers which seemed so outrageous at the outset, have become a fashion week staple with glam-rock metallic embellished platforms and bejewelled spectacles making regular appearances.
Dolce & Gabbana
Aptly titled ‘Tropico Italiano’, the cuts, colours and lush layering seen at the show were inspired by none other than Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s hometown in Italy. It’s clearly evident that this brand eschews ‘defining trends’ to focus on experiences, storytelling and incorporating more personality into their collections. The cocktail- and gelato-print sundresses, iconic headpieces, drummer jackets and mandolin-shaped bags were the spitting image of a regular day in Naples and Sicily.
Prada’s collection completely redefined evening wear as iconic faces of the fashion house walked the runway wearing modernised separates and plaids in a kaleidoscopic colour palette. 90s minimalism, retro prints and a flair for the eclectic details were received with thunderous applause while the inclusion of ostrich feathers was quite charming. Bejewelled sporty sandals, enviable gold-chain purses and giant pendulum-shaped pendants made for some versatile accessories.
Sporty stripes, punk vibes, feminine florals, pastels and sheer fabrics ruled the runway at the Fendi show. The wispy materials, delicate flower prints, and boudoir layers were quite ethereal, while cool techno knits and comfy-looking sock boots upped the cool quotient. Short skirts painted with a sheen of flowers outlined with were vintage as they were contemporary.
