Milan Fashion Week
One upshot of the wane of skinny jeans: denim has become a lot less conformist. Outside the Max Mara show, a guest wore an oversized denim jacket and pants with contrasting cuffs for a cool spin on this workday staple.
Colorful cocktail dress season is upon us, and thank God! It makes getting dressed for parties so much easier. Outside the Emporio Armani show, a matching dress, shoes and bag.
Mia Moretti has a real gift for making everything retro new again. Here in a collared black, red and white look at Emporio Armani in Milan.
A good example of how an all-white outfit can look badass, as seen on Gilda Ambrosio at the Iceberg show in Milan. The masculine cut of the jacket and pants give it an edge.
Maybe you had a Cinco de Mayo outfit ready to go for tonight, but it did not include a wool coat. Because although it is freezing, it is May. At the Milan fashion shows, Erica Pelosini effortlessly turned a warm weather outfit into a cool weather one by adding suede boots and a light colored coat – one that even goes with a sheer spring dress.
“Black and white is always right,” as my aunt likes to say, and there’s never a better time than when the weather is in flux. Candela Novembre paired a white angora sweater with a black pencil skirt and gorgeous heels at the Max Mara show.
Gucci again made waves in the fashion industry by announcing they would show both menswear and womenswear with one show starting in 2017. (Let’s hope it falls during women’s fashion week.) Outside the fall 2016 show, Bryanboy sported Alessandro Michele’s boundary-pushing designs for the label. It may be pajama dressing, but it sure looks luxe.
When it’s spring but it’s freezing: this is actually quite a familiar scenario, because this was the weather throughout this past fashion month. Soften the blow by bundling up with bright colors and graphic prints, like this guest with a striped jacket at the Blugirl show in Milan.
It’s almost April and definitely time to bust out the florals, as seen on Tiffany Hsu, who wore a great botanical print top paired with cropped jeans to the Fendi show in Milan.
Brighten up a rainy day with graphic prints and bright colors as Polina Askeri did at the Jil Sander show in Milan.
Molto Italiano: a classic menswear look on Fabrizio Oriani of Gentlemen’s Wear Daily outside the Emporio Armani show. And yes, more mustard yellow!
Rain, rain go away! Daniela Zuccotti of Fregola handled the bad weather in Milan in style with a transparent umbrella and gray jumpsuit.
Have you any Grey Poupon? Mustard yellow is shaping up to be a big color right now and for fall 2016. Margaret Zhang exited the Fendi show in an oversize mustard coat and Fendi bag and pants.
Give it a whirl: Eleonora Carisi spun around in a purple fur coat and pink and purple print dress at the Costume National show.
