Milan Fashion Week
Erica Pelosini and J.J. Martin wore matching prints from J.J.’s fashion line La Double J to the Marni show. The looks are part of a welcome trend to replicate vintage prints with modern materials, so there’s no more sweating away in thick polyester just so you can wear something cool and retro. For La Double J., Martin goes through troves of prints in an Italian archive, then licenses and reproduces them in Italy with eye-catching results.
Maybe it’s in the genes, but Kaia Gerber is already showing off some great personal style outside the shows. She exited the Prada show in leopard pants with mules and a vintage Metallica tee in Milan. Casual but chic.
We saw so much of this ribbed Calvin Klein sweater with cut-outs at the shoulder during fashion month. Carlotta Oddi wore hers with a paneled maxi skirt and boots. Cut-outs at the shoulder are still on-trend in knits and silk tops, although with a hard, straight line like a tank top, not the scooped out shoulder that has been done ad infinitum.
Sofa prints! Who knew they could be so chic? But they’re popping up everywhere, especially on lightweight floral coats for fall. Pair it with a velvet top and you’ve got a Victorian vibe going.
Anna Dello Russo hit two trends with one dress: florals and sequins, both of which have been making a splash outside the shows.
Caroline Issa in a pink print frock at the Giorgio Armani show. The cut outs at the shoulder are very on trend – we’ve seen a lot of this cut on silk dresses and tops, while it was previously mostly in knitwear.
Crushed velvet on Olivia Palermo. This velvet thing is happening! It looks particularly good in saturated colors like this emerald green.
Gigi Hadid walked the spring runway at Alberta Ferretti in a cool one-piece bathing suit. Good thing it was really warm out this day!
Karlie Kloss on the Alberta Ferretti runway beautiful in lurex.
A great striped Gucci suit on Veronika Heilbrunner at the show. Unmistakably Gucci!
Loved this somewhat unconventional and unexpected look on Anna Wintour – so many florals! She hits a trend and hits it hard. Brava. At the Gucci show yesterday.
Two of my absolute faves in Gucci at Gucci: Bryanboy and Tina Leung.
The Doors bag and two-tone heels are not that far from a lunch box and saddle shoes. Back-to-school accessories will gear you up for fall.
Bright red is on track to become one of the big trends this fall, a color seen on model Marjan Jonkman last September. It looks especially sharp with black and white pinstripes. She was also ahead of the curve on ribbed sweaters, which are making a comeback.
