The Milan Fashion Week – that ended on September 24 – with its super-exclusive events and amazing collections that pleased insiders and non, has already begun to set trends.
Nothing is more feminine than a dress full of flounces and ruffles. The good news is that the summer will be rich in all that, as evidenced by the collections of Missoni and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini. From the most romantic to the most sensual ones, there is space for transparencies and silhouettes that emphasize the shapes of the woman’s body.
Another strength of the most academic femininity is lace as a symbol of tradition and the know-how of Italian artisans. As the black proposals by Alberta Ferretti and Marco Di Vincenzo.
Patchwork fabrics, already the absolute protagonists of winter fashion shows, also make a comeback, but in a lightened version full of unusual flowers and nuances. Among the most beautiful patchwork style dresses, there are those proposed by Versace and Etro.
Proportions, then, continue to focus on the oversized trend. We have seen high-tech fabric outfits at Jil Sander and couture rain coats at Sportmax.
One of the preferred colours of designers seems to be beige, next to powder pink and all nude shades. These delicate and sophisticated nuances triumphed on Fendi and Tod’s runaways playing with different materials and textures.
Prints, instead, prefer bright, vibrant and vivid colours, choosing contrasts and decidedly arty patterns. Neoclassic at Marni, pseudo animalier at Roberto Cavalli, and floral and abstract at Moschino.
Finally, another timeless piece, much loved by all women. The Little Black Dress is revisited in its most sensual shapes ready to attract the attention of even the shyest preys. N°21, Max Mara and, of course, Dolce & Gabbana bring to the catwalk some very refined styles.
