Milan Fashion Week: September 21
At Marni, the show opened with muted looks like a minimalist top and flowy pants cut from crinkled off-white fabric and cinched with a sweater-knit judo belt for a splash of contrast.
Known for deftly combining modern design with bold color and whimsical prints, creative director Consuela Castiglioni quickly amped things up, moving into a sculpted woven look with exciting colorblocked hues.
We would love to see a fresh-faced starlet boldly donning this silver-accented matelassé gown come awards season.
Embroidered appliqués and meticulously gathered blooms took riotous spring florals to tactile new heights.
Feast your eyes: Marni’s take on the sport sandal. Normcore isn’t going anywhere.
At MSGM, spring was for the birds. Massimo Giorgetti featured an array of feathered friends—or actual feathers—in brightly colored prints and sparkling sequined accents.
The thin-strapped apron top, a staple of ’90s style, is making a comeback in a major way.
A spray of purple and yellow plumes adds a touch of humor to a modern-prep ensemble.
A clever way to incorporate the sport trend into your evening look: the sheer hooded pullover.
The tubular designs at Ferragamo added a space-age feel to shoes and handbags rendered in natural hues. These towering, ultra-modern espadrilles feel especially new.
Once again, a tactile finish makes an otherwise clean design stand apart from the crowd.
