THE BEST OF MILAN FASHION WEEK 2021
Ehi fashion lovers!
The Milan Fashion Week has come to an end and it’s time to list the coolest shows!
This collection proved to be a mix of elegance, femininity and sensuality. Sartorial fabrics were the protagonists, together with leather (suede and soft leather). The volumes are large for the upper part of the body, with ponchos, cloaks, coats and trench coats. And what about the matching of colors like bottle green and peacock blue? Too cool!
The brand chooses to re-launch the trend of the fringes, on suede jackets and long coats. Shimmering and opaque fabrics, python and suede; the focus remain the fur, now declined in a contemporary version.
A very British collection: tartan, kilts, oversize bomber jackets, alpaca coats…
The references are clear in the foulards draped over the heads of the models, in a perfect “The Crown” style. As far as the color palette is concerned, the shades remind of an English autumn wood: brown (a must-have for Max Mara) paired with green and yellow.
For this collection, Miuccia Prada teamed up with Raf Simons and created a collection that is almost no-gender and that announces a change of style for Prada.
The idea is to take a classic item (like a tailleur) and transform it with geometric and contrasting layers.
The new iconic piece of the Maison? The “long johns”, that is tops, leggings and pantyhose in elastic jacquard fabric that mimic the naked skin.
The stylist clearly took inspiration from Rudolf Nureyev and Jimi Hendrix, with embroidered long gown-coats, fringed blazers and vest-dresses for the evening.
Patchwork coats have this handcraft, creative allure and the jackets have a metropolitan taste, while the suits for men are made with fabrics for home furniture!
A real tribute to the essence of women over the years. The lines of the 20s transform the body in a totem of style: sculpted shapes originate from elaborated overlaps, large shoulders play with draperies to make the bust look slimmer. Leather is the main element of dresses, coats, shirts and skirts. Materials that are typical of the male sartorial tradition, like flannel and pinstriped wool, meet a new feminine dimension and they overlap with solid textures like unstitched, frayed hems and tie&dye effects.
The FW 21/22 collection is the result of a mix of different inspirations and influences. From elegant pieces, dominated by see-through lace, to more sportive cuts, like trousers with side bands, colorful knitwear and bright feather jackets in pink and purple.
PHILOSOPHY BY LORENZO SERAFINI
A collection inspired to school uniforms: a feast of tartan skirts, blazers, bomber jackets and Basque berets. On many items there are patches with the letters P (Philosophy) and L (Lorenzo Serafini). Serafini’s students are those who break the rules, equipped with square-toed kombat boots!
Color, color and more color! A message of rebirth and hope: feminine, fluid lines in a palette of delicate, soft colors. Emilio Pucci pink, canary yellow and mint green, an elegance that has always been the maison’s trademark.
The fundamental element of the collection is beyond doubts the fusion of colors and fabrics: vinyl and craquelè leather join sequins, denim, silk and faux fur. Vibrant colors like green, red, shocking pink and orange convey the idea of nocturnal fashion, for evasion and adventure.
Piccioli’s dualism is expressed with the choice of black and white, spaced out by gold. Women and men wear the same clothes in this “shared wardrobe”, a strong and contemporary choice.
DOLCE & GABBANA
The perfect final for this Fashion Week!
The keywords of the collection? Technology and craftsmanship. Two apparently distant worlds that come together and create unique patterns and prints, thanks to fashion. The entire collection is a triumph of colors and laminate!
