La dolce vita… per sempre @MilanoFashionWeek

When the other Fashion Weeks are about discovering new name and new trends, Milano Fashion Week will always be about the “big names in fashion”. No matter how hard the young brands will try, no matter how innovative a show will be, in Milano, forever and ever, all the eyes will be on Alessandro Michele at Gucci, on Miuccia Prada, Karl Lagerfeld and his work for Fendi, on Jeremy Scott and his cool Moschino looks. Therefore, let’s give the power to the mighty gods of fashion. What we have seen, at Milano Fashion Week, for Fall/Winter 2017/2018 collections?

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana put all their charm into a Millenials show, as everybody called the runway. There were 140 people, of all ages and ethnics, all of them dressed…. as they loved. Yep, the Italian duo let the people on the runway to choose their fitting. How hipster glam is that?!

At Versace, all the outfits called in the glam female power. And not just the clothes: the first thing which hit me was the tribe of models’ serious look of intent—their punkish cat-eye makeup, their color-streaked hair extensions, their stride. Than, there were the words, written all over: UNITY, COURAGE, LOYALTY, LOVE. Power to the girls!

At Fendi, on Milano Fashion Week, Karl Lagerfeld got back to the origins of the brand (and he did it, also, for other collections this season – let’s just take a look at Chanel couture show). I just fell in love with the grey outfits and the long coats (have you seen the grey herringbone double-breasted coat with deep mink cuffs circling bracelet-length sleeves?!) and, of course, the red boots.

For Bottega Veneta, the designer Thomas Maier imagined a world with a lot of influences from 40s. So, he sent to the catwalk some puff-sleeved, high-waisted midi dresses in dusty blue, yellow, and pink, worn with sheer black stockings and hairdos set in a wave. Worth for a lady.

Giorgio Armani put a lot of suits on the catwalk: from silk pants mixed with precious tops to velvet or… just cotton T-shirts.

Fulvio Rigoni presented his second collection for Salvatore Ferragamo. And he said he approached the task with four words in mind: “dynamic, sensual, luxe, comfortable”. And he made it. I just loved the simple, yet very sophisticated duo of blue turtleneck and the brown skirt, with a bow instead of a belt.

Jeremy Scott at Moschino involves logo mania for Moschino fall-winter 2017-2018 fashion show with models like Molly Bair, Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Romee Strijd and Elsa Hosk.

At Gucci, Alessandro Michele put a little bit of geek, a little bit of flowers… the designer presented an eclectic and flamboyant collection somewhere between vintage and futurism, orientalism and floral motifs.

As for Miuccia Prada, the visionary genius behind Prada brand… I bet all the pieces from Fall/Winter 2017/2018 collection will be bestseller the next fall.
