Milan Fashion Week (Spring 2020 Ready-to-Wear) ended on Monday but the internet is still going crazy with everything that happened. It is nearly impossible to pick a favourite fashion week city for runway fashion, but if I absolutely had to choose, Milan would be it. I mean… name an Italian fashion house that can be described as merely average? I’ll wait.
You can’t, and I can’t, so why don’t we just get straight to it. Here are our 7 (it was difficult to choose, but we ain’t got all day) favourite fashion shows from #MFW.
If it was up to me, this blog would end right after these photos, because can we all just take a moment for the masterpiece that is this collection? The models were literal works of art on legs. Inspired by all of the styles of Picasso’s art, Jeremy Scott created 52 looks that played on two-dimensionality with the garments serving as the canvas for the painted prints.
I honestly think if these pieces of clothing could walk themselves the models wouldn’t even be necessary, and that’s when you know a collection is art and fashion.
Yes, The Jungle Dress. J-Lo on the runway. If you haven’t seen it, under what rock are you living? Don’t worry, we are here for you because here it is:
But other than that, we believe the rest of the collection has to have its moment in the BLOSS sun as well. We love the transformation of the blazer into the little black dress (aka LBD) and the structure of it all. It is fierce and feminine, and also, didn’t we tell you blazers were a thing, like, last week?
3. Dolce & Gabbana
Meanwhile, D&G just took us on a low-key jungle safari in Milan, complete with a leopard print carpet, the works. No biggie. Here feminine meets utility, meets earthy, meets exotic prints, meets everything. We loved all (of the astounding) 124 looks showcased on the leopard print carpet, but here are 4 top favourites. Pay special attention to the accessories, hair included.
Etro had us at “Doutzen Kroes is opening the show.” Followed by Irina Shayk and Candice Swanepoel. Followed by understated bohemian chic fashion in royal colours and deep tones, combined with white. The focus was definitely on the shirt, which is also making its comeback and will let t-shirts sit on the backburner for a while. Whether it’s a clean-cut men’s button-down or a large, flowy sleeved blouse with lots of detail, we adore it.
5. Max Mara
At Max Mara, the order of the day seemed to be minimalist monochrome ensembles. The show was opened by Gigi Hadid, flanked by Candice Swanepoel and Doutzen Kroes in all-grey, pig-tails and deep purple lips (which was the assigned colour for the entire cast of models). I think it’s the absurdity of the look that actually makes it work. I almost want to say, Adams family meet newspaper boy/postman vibes? Am I wrong?
Which one of these is your favourite? Or was there another Milan Fashion week show that stood out for you? We want to know in the comments below (where fashion lovers unite).
