For some reason whenever I think of Milan I think of rich colours, silk shirts, wrap dresses and Sophia Loren (I know she’s a Roman but she signifies Italian fashion to me). It is portrayed as a city of elegance and luxury whereby all the women look like screen sirens and all the men are in fine suits accented with gold jewellery. This however is not typically the case and it is proven upon seeing what Milan fashion week has to offer. Yes, there were your typically luxurious ladylike shows such as Dolce and Gabbana and Alberta Ferretti but this year seemed to be a bit of a mixed bag in terms of trends and styles.

Trussardi and Emporio Armani showed us their take on menswear chic and focused on tailoring and androgynous styling whilst Bottega Veneta showed us elements of simplicity with well-cut dresses and clean lines. Jil Sander also gave us a minimalistic collection with her stunning pastel coats, then contradicted the minimalism by adding bright lace up oxfords (which I am a little obsessed with). Prada showed us a great juxtaposition with its lingerie slip dresses and oversize coats (a classy walk of shame look comes to mind) and Blumarine gave us rich black and gold pieces inspired by Asia; think kimono style dressing with a touch of tailoring added.

My standouts were a tie between Versace and Gucci… They both had this swinging sixties/mod vibe going on and I for one LOVED IT!!! I was oohing  and aahing over pretty much every piece which is when you know the collection is a winner. Overall, Milan was the perfect balance between ladylike and androgynous; a great combination in my opinion.

  1. The first pictures are one of my faivrote men’s looks for the season. While I can never get tired of plaid, adding a bright color block, like your electric blue can really make the difference and suit the season!happy weekend.xoTiffany
