MILAN FASHION WEEK FW 2014 REVIEW

Here we are, at the third Fashion Week of the season, whilst Paris has just started their defiles, we bring you the most interesting styles seen in Milan.

We were happy to see some recurring trends from New York and London Fashion Week including Asymmetrical, Oversize and Folklore, which, we are positive, will be the must-haves next winter.

ANDROGYNY – Victor Victoria apparently inspired many designers during this milanese catwalks. Women were dressed like men, with excessively oversized jackets, like Gabriele Colangelo, and highly masculine accessories such as ties and maxi top hats as seen at Emporio Armani. Boys in the girl’s room…Girls in the men’s room?

 

RETRO MINIS – from the 20s ’til the 90s, mini skirts are back! Roberto Cavalli proposed a fur embellished flapper-girl dress, Dsquared2 went for the swinging London look while Emilio Pucci was inspired by the following decade, with this psychedelic minidress. Jeremy Scott’s first show as Creative Director for Moschino was remarkable, he went for the 90s supermodel glam…feeling nostalgic?

 

WARM COLORS vs PASTELS – the war of colours, Missoni and Stella Jean went for red and orange shades for a warm wintery feeling. Models were ice queens at Gucci and Jil Sander shows, reminiscent of the 60s the first one and futuristic the second. which one do you prefer?

 

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS – Italian tailoring rhymes with attention in detail. Wallpaper prints were embellished with embroidery at Dolce & Gabbana and Blumarine whilst beautiful feathers and furs decorated the garments at Marni and Antonio Marras. Divine!
