MFW Highlights: Day 3

4:36 PM


Milan Fashion Week is here people and we're really excited about it! The main reason being that the italians so are full of contradictions. From the funky Moschino shows, to the classic italian-inspired Dolce&Gabbana ones we're here to inform you about all the trends that will be seen on the Milanese catwalks.

Starting off Day 3 with Blumarine, we have to talk about how this show turned us into romantics (huh, see what I did there?). With its aetherial sillhouettes which managed to be sexy and really playful at the same time, the spring vibes, brought to us by the covered up embroided patterns and the applique florals, and the amazing colour palette, this show stayed true to the brands signature style but turned out to be fresh at the same time. I'm not gonna lie, the Marco de Vincenzo show may or may not have caused us a bit of a headache with all its mixed and matched patterns on the amazing reflective fabrics. Other than that, we have to admit that the eastern prints worked amazing with the *really* bright colours. And we certainly need to talk about the amazing outwear, especially the ones with the feather finish. Overall a really interesting show to watch with a really catchy day to night edge to it.

Emporio Armani, with its greys and the rest of the cold toned palette had a really laid back vibe to it, always with an officewear twist, just to balance things out. With his attention to detail, the very few & fine prints as well as the beautifully structured outwear, Giorgio Armani managed to deliver a really amazing and beautifully structured collection.The Giamba show was something we weren't expecting to see in the italian fashion scene. The patchwork patterns, along with the blue, white and red colours mixing up with denim and sequins brought us back to New York. This show had an americanised romanticism which was a brilliant reminder of the universal character of fashion nowadays, 


The Versace show was definetely the most talked one of the day. When the prints became bolder and the lines sexier, but in a really classy and feminine way, the khaki jackets ended when the transparencies begun. An overall solid collection with many different variables covering up the majority of different it-girl styles. With a 60's attitude, a marine vibe, and classic, wearable, mostly loose lines, the Sportmax show was one of out favourite ones to watch. The orange shades mixed up with the blues and the whites as they complemented the various hemlines of all shapes and sizes, as well as the wide and perfectly pointy collars. 


At the Tod's show the accessories were in the foreground where the stripes and high waisted pants followed. A variety of blue shades, black & white complemented by safely secured neck scarves, the presence of which makes me more than excited. It was one of these collections which makes us excited to purchase jackets and add a few blazers to our wardrobe. Lastly we have Bally's presentation. I'm pretty sure we cried a little as each and every outfit somehow managed to top the previous one. A bit of suede, amazing suits and jackets and those croc open heeled loafers where only a few of the things that we loved about this collection.
