Milano Fashion Week FW 23/24 in 5 catwalks 

OK, I will admit: it is a trick there, because there are not just 5 catwalks. In fact, there are 25 images (yep, I know) from 5 shows that I loved at Milano Fashion Week FW 23/24. What can I do if I liked them so much and I couldn’t decide?! From the elegant Prada pieces and old Hollywood style Ferragamo items, from the endless nuances of beige and camel from Max Mara to the incredible clean cuts of Jil Sander, with a bit of rock with Diesel on top.

Ferragamo: the British designer Maximilian Davis continued his exploration of Hollywood (Salvatore Ferragamo famously was shoemaker to Golden Age actresses like Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren) – with sleekly elegant garments. My favourite piece: the black dress with a splash of red, just amazing! 

Max Mara: Ian Griffiths looked back to the European coffee houses of the 18th century as a starting point for his latest Max Mara collection. It is a collection “with a collection that mixes reason and order with a dash of romance”, said the house. My favourite look: the beige suit with a daring transparent lace & leather top. 

Prada: the designer Miuccia Prada (who co-designed this collection with Raf Simmons) said that the focus on uniforms which were transformed and put into the spotlight. On the other hand, the decorated white satin skirts, reminding of a wedding gown, were paired with simple and neat sweaters, for a everyday look. My favourite: the grey long dress, but also all the shoes, just beautiful! 

Jil Sander: a collection a little bit different from the usual minimalism of the brand. The designers, Luke and Lucie Meier, were inspired by a mid-to-late 90s mood, so we saw some reinterpreted biker jackets, very wide casual pants and some prints inspired by candy world. My favourite piece: the zipped extra large pants. 

Diesel: A vast mound of Durex condoms sat in the centre of the Diesel showspace, for a show the brand said was about “freedom, pleasure, experimentation and play” (a capsule collection of clothing will mark Durex’s first collaboration with a fashion label). “Have fun, respect each other, be safe”, said creative director Glenn Martens. And they did have fun! My favourite piece: the extra long jeans.
