The excitement with fashion week always starts with the first show in Milan. Sometimes it’s impossible to explain all that love and affection about Milan and Paris Fashion Week, you just feel it.
Milan Fashion Week brought joy to our life, to the life of all those fashion enthusiasts who thought fashion week was over because of the pandemic. But fashion is strong, and nothing can kill the creativity of a designer and the hard work of all those individuals that give life to a collection.
Dolce & Gabbana came with a whole different look, something that was unexpected for many people. There were bustier dresses (of course) but somehow the identity of Dolce & Gabbana was hidden in all those prints and colours.
Silvia Venturini’s collection for Fendi was a vision of the future. There was a particular detail that dominated the collection, that of the window. When looking at this collection you have the impression that you see the world go by from the window of your room.
If you would ask us who is the winner of this year’s fashion week in Milan, we would say Versace without a doubt. When almost every designer is focusing on the current situation and creating collections with pieces that are needed and wearable, Donatella steps in and brings us an outstanding collection that was a mixture between mythology and that Miami vibe during Summer. By looking at this collection you get the pure message that there is still hope, we just have to be patient. This collection has everything from oversized jackets, bikinis, neon mini dresses, bra tops paired with skinny skirts, etc.
The first collaboration between Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons was the highlight of this fashion week. The designers decided to hold a virtual show and their theme was the uniform, something that both designers have embraced for several years now.
The Max Mara Spring 2021 collection was created for the workaholic yet fashionable woman who is between black colour and neutral shades.
This season Valentino’s Spring 2021 collection was full of surprises. Pierpaolo Piccioli presented for the first time his Valentino collection in Milan that included workwear pieces, the iconic sheer dresses, lace dresses, the rockstud which made a comeback and there was also a collaboration with Levis.
