As one of most talked about events of the fashion year, Milan Fashion Week has always delivered when it comes to excellence within the industry. This year was no exception and a slew of fashion houses served up exciting looks that will take the world by storm immediately. There were the usual suspects when it came to names like Versace, Prada, and Ferragamo, but new designers also took center stage to lay claim to a new direction in fashion. Here are some of the most iconic moments from Milan Fashion Week.
Versace has never been an Italian label to disappoint, and this collection proved no exception as the fashion house packed the catwalk with vibrantly hued mini-dresses, the full palette of colored furs, and slip dresses. The big bonus for the line was Adriana Lima returning to the event, signaling a return to the runway in a bold blue creation.
Shades of blue was definitely one of the heavily favored hues this year and Salvatore Ferragamo served up his own version, as well as bright reds matched with olive and brown tones. Lined pockets have made a comeback in a big way and they were featured in Ferragamo’s collection as well, a signal that they are here to stay.
A perennial favorite within the fashion world, Bottega Veneta this year featured floral dresses, graphic knits, and an assortment of prints and patterns that made hteir presence known. The highlight of the collection was supermodel Joan Smalls in a yellow, blue, and black pattern dress that was a hit with fashion critics.
Tropical influences were featured on the runway for Max Mara this year, with the collection inspired by famed Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi. This printed dress and jacket added just the right amount of style and sophistication to the catwalk.
Celebrated as one of the fashion industry’s most intricate designers, Ferretti continued the trend mixing tuxedos with embellished sleeves. Tailored pants and black lace were also on display, making this one of the more memorable collections this Fashion Week.
This collection is all about a woman’s freedom: freedom of movement, freedom of activity, freedom to fight for their ideas, freedom to be whomever you want to. As the undisputed Queen of the Catwalk, Naomi Campbell was again the name on everyone’s lips as she made her way down the catwalk for Donatella Versace. The British supermodel was a vision in a sporty chic look that has become one of the most popular on concrete jungles everywhere and made this year’s Milan Fashion Week all the more memorable.
