L’aperitivo italiano: Milan Fashion Week

Colors and prints, feminine silhouettes in retro eclectic designs, vintage sketches and a new interpretation of traditional patterns, plus a lot of noise and fun: that was, of course, Milan Fashion Week. I don’t know if it was the espresso to blame or it’s just the vivid Italian spirit all the way, but this season we saw a lot of effervescent, colorful, intriguing outfits on the catwalk for Spring/Summer 2016 collections. Alberta Ferretti put the bets on sand, sun and sky, with bohemian blouses and delicate dresses, Gucci and Prada quarried for the archives for models and put them in a new light, while on the runaways at Salvatore Ferragamo and Versace we saw a lot of classic models (leather skirts and chiffon dresses at first and long, long legs with crisp jackets and micro skirts at the second). At Blumarine, feminine silhouettes were everywhere, while Fendi collection put Karls’ imagination on moving. For short, I loved the asymmetric cuts and rigid tunics that I saw at Marni, the pink and grey combo at Emporio Armani, but even more the messages… in a dress at Dolce&Gabbana. Finally, I think nobody we’ll be able to forget the “No parking. Couture zone” traffic sign put by Jeremy Scott at Moschino. (Pictured above: Prada, Marni, Dolce&Gabbana)
