Milan. Home of the Italian Superbrand’s; GUCCI, FENDI, PRADA, Versace. All the creme de la creme flock to see the pinnacle of all the fashion weeks combined. This article focuses on the top-highlights from Milan Fashion Week #MFW.
Kicking off Milan Fashion Week with VERSACE’S SS20 collection off in true style, Donatella held no qualms at all on this show. She flew out Jenny from the block. Yes. That’s right…Jennifer Lopez to wear the iconic dress that she wore to the 2000 Grammy’s which broke the internet. In fact, Google Images was born as a result of it being the most Googled image of 2000. She also revealed in her collection, the Versace Palm Printed reworked in the modern-day age. Relevant for today, tomorrow and the future! Followed by the introduction of leather, a material loved by Donatella and highlighting outfits with a corset leather ensemble. Miniature accessories are still all the rage. First introduced to the fashion scene by the much loved Jacquemus. The French designer who launched his “Chiquito” bag last year, was all the rage it has been sold out for a while now. Classic Versace baroque prints with a new twist also featured on the stellar cast of supermodels who walked the show. Key favourites include Gigi & Bella Hadid, Irina Shayk, Iman Hamman and the finale of JLo debuting the jungle print dress that was a Versace signature definitely broke the internet.
Silvia Venturi Fendi showed her first collection post-Karl, Lagerfeld. Minimal chic is always a consistent theme at Fendi. This season an array of tonal browns, beiges, and cream were beautifully presented. Statement accessories were accompanying each outfit, particularly the ever-so envious eyewear collection.
Daniel Lee’s fresh vision reigned supreme. For instance, the floor mimicked their iconic luxury leather bags that are made using the intrecciato technique. Signature of the house of Bottega. Unlike, choosing on the already trending miniature accessories, the collection focused on large bags. Oversized-the bigger the better at Bottega. Menswear pieces were styled with a futuristic vibe.
Conveyor belt style show, with models lined up side by side. The collection took part in playful textures, color-blocking with an injection of large, oversized eye-wear with large chunky chains. The focus was on the beautiful leather accessories, that are so dear to the house. Leather accessories and shoes were renewed with a new design.
