Milan Fashion Week was light hearted and full of life, experimenting with print, introducing a sense of fun with collections like Moschino celebrating their 30th birthday and making a visual impact. Here are some of our favourites from the week…. Click here to shop our Italian brands.
Jil Sander stuck to her signature clean look, but even she could not help a splash of print and risqué cuts, revealing midriffs and low necklines. It was a fresh and simple collection, where pieces could easily be mix and matched to create a contemporary wardrobe for day to evening.
Moschino had fun, fun, fun with a sense of dressing up by being nostalgic and celebrating previous collections. This season reflected the tongue ‘n’ cheek mood of the brand and kept the monochrome theme with a flash of red. A combination of ladylike day dresses and corsets with chain detailing on hot pants epitomised the saint and sinner aesthetic of Moschino.
Antonio Marras SS14 was like a hand drawn picture book played out on models with beautiful illustrations appliquéd on to sheer silks, embroidered flowers on pencil skirts and cargo jackets, and pictorials of landscapes printed on shirts. It was striking with a black and off white palette, but softened with pale pinks and greens which provided a sense of elegance to a childlike demeanour.
Etro layered upon layer paisley and embraced what the brand does best… print! The silhouettes look liked they had been pieced together with scarves to create this slouchy, exotic traveller look. Majority of the collection was toned down with pastel shades but it did incorporate the occasional punch of reds and aquas for those who want to make a statement!
