Milan Fashion Week AW16

Ciao mia bella!

Honestly, I don't usually sift through the Milan shows - mainly because I'm still going through all the London ones!

Milan Fashion Week boasts some huge, established designers, from the likes of Prada, Gucci, Pucci and Marni. These collections are on almost every fashion editors lists of ones to sit in the front row at.

Check out my favourites below;

Marni
Balloon-sleeved blouses, shoulder-molding cutaway capes, and stretchy ski pants - a groomed, classy vision of modern romantic elegance. The coat below is my favourite from MFW, and I hope high-street brands *coughs* Cos *coughs* are heavily influenced by this collection.

Jil Sander
Monochrome, minimal, pure, precise - vintage inspired pieces with a chic look. I love the oversized neck on the white jumper, and the metallic thread on the black coat.

Max Mara
The theme of the collection was 1920s Bauhaus and the women painters, textile designers, moviemakers, and collage artists who were at the center of modernism in Germany, Russia, and Ukraine between the two world wars. Think narrow overcoats, pinstripe suits and a hint of metallic thrown in - a little glamour to some very chic pieces.

Salvatore Ferragamo
Knits led the way here, with button detailing, belts, and pleated peplums. Even the knit slip dresses were simpler and more desirable. The pops of colour across the collection was gorgeous, and I've got to do a shout out for their catwalk floor - not something I'd usually do, but when it's that lovely it would be rude not to.
