Milan Fashion Week was a whirlwind of tremendous fashion making it almost to difficult to write this post with any brevity. Seven designers made my list as the best of this Italian Fashion Week and that was with some difficult cuts. I hope that you enjoy this summary as much as I enjoyed writing and composing it.
Alberta Ferretti anchored her collection in bold stripes and beautifully flowing chiffon. Military-style jackets and high waistband pants also peppered the collection as Ferretti made a strong showing to open Milan Fashion Week. Evening wear consisted mostly of black chiffon dresses; however, there were some dashes of color as shown above. Black feathers accented some of the pieces to add gorgeous highlights to the gowns. The finale showed evening gowns with long, ornate capes demonstrating that this trend will be around for at least another season, maybe more.
Tomas Maier presented a solid collection with plenty of black pieces sprinkled with enough color to make it interesting. The texture of the pieces stood out almost as much as the intricate tailoring. The first look (above) is a tangerine skirt suit that is beautifully designed with impeccable tailoring. The same came be said for other pieces in the collection such as the two dresses featured above or the puffed pants. All these designs have beautiful elements and are fashion-forward in some aspect. The silver evening gown which was part of the show’s finale was truly exquisite. The fabric flowed effortlessly. This was an exquisite collection with an ethereal touch.
Fendi is always a perennial favorite at MFW. Perhaps that is because creative director Karl Lagerfeld never wavers in displaying a stellar collection. For Fall/Winter 2017, there was something very special about this collection. It could have been the Fendi monogramming on several of the pieces or the eye-catching red boots that complemented many of the designs. This collection was one of the best that I have seen. Truly gorgeous in its stature and beauty, it will be one for the history books.
Giorgio Armani knows how to close Milan Fashion Week: with a phenomenal collection. In a colorful collection filled with reds, silvers, and greens, Armani knows Autumn. To complement the obligatory black pieces, he spiced things up with these brilliant colors that gave beautiful life to an already stunning collection.
With high waistlines, vivid colors, and even some animal print, Salvatore Ferragamo did not disappoint with the inclusion of variety. The display above represents a cross-section of the collection. It consisted of beautiful tailoring and structure which made each design unique in its on way.
Versace did just as Versace does: show extraordinarily beautiful designs. The MFW color theme still stood strong as Versace showed various colors in its collection such as yellow, blue, orange, and red. Fall/Winter 2017 is shaping up as a colorful season!
