The Fashion trends forecasters had, once again, turn up in full swing at the heart of the Fashion Capital in Italy. Showcasing their sought-after pieces and styles for next year’s spring and summer season. From Fendi paying homage to the house’s history under Lagerfeld’s stint and legacy to Versace playing with gothic y2k bride fused with contemporary sass. It’s all the drama to witness this September for Milan Fashion Week.
It’s a fun fashion-feast this season, as these Italian fashion houses unveil sartorial scenery at the runway. And there’s no way we’re getting fashion fatigued because guess what? Paris fashion week had just commenced!
Kim jones sealed a signature color palettes for his Fendi Spring-Summer 2023. From somber green, pastel blue, gray and electric pink, to nudes and mink, these colours passionately emerged in every look we’re digging.
He made sure to pay homage to Lagerfeld’s legacy at the eponymous label through incorporating such designs and silhouettes and mixing it with how Fendi looks ahead of the season next year. Silk chiffon and satin tops descended on the runway with dresses and slip gowns that added a cool and breezy element to the collection. There were also sheers and cool layering with slits
Spectators immensely awaited this Fashion house as a presenter for this week. As the eponymous brand unveils the debut of their newest creative director: Maximilian Davis. In contrast to how the fans online reacted, when the brand zhuzhed their label up by retaining the Ferragamo in a bold and contemporary minimalist font. Spectators felt the reenergized DNA intent of the new artistic director in the collection.
The collection translated Maximillian’s in-depth understanding of the Florentine-fashion label’s character and identity. Coalesced with Davis sartorial flair, this is a match made in heaven! The collection also features menswear pieces with on point tailoring along with the womenswear executed in playful and classic silhouettes. Sultry leathers, opulent suedes, and a bedazzled number and see-throughs are scene stealers of the show as well.
Meanwhile, Donatella spices things up with some gloomy, dark, yet romantic ensembles that will fixate us on Versace’s glamour-filled mystery. The show predominantly showcased black and purple with a touch of fuchsia and some pastel yellow and green. As expected from Versace, impeccable leather pieces studded with some silvers, along with sensual yet pristine dresses also emerged.

Fashion week also becomes a key-inspo for contemporary brides-to-be. In line with Versace’s theme, there were bridal goths that descended on the runway. One of which was Bella Hadid in the infamous all-purple lace number.
Needless to say, Donatella really understands how Gianni Versace would cater to the client of today.
Next on our list shocked the Milan Fashion Week. Not only that entire week but also the succeeding months especially if one (who has already seen it) attempts to relive it again. Alessandro Michele precisely gets the Gucci clientele’s appetite for sleek and sharp tailoring. And for this collection, he did not disappoint. Despite the obsession with Y2k Fashion and Aesthetic from the past current seasons, we can notice Michelle’s Gucci commitment to 70’s and 80’s fashion styles and aesthetic which will surely not drift away in the fashion hemisphere. It will carry on until the next seasons as long as you present it and do it like GUCCI!
There were also playful mix and match of prints that are curated with sartorial choices and will surely be etched in our Gucci lexicon. From structured and sleek suits to checkered and more vibrant prints plus some ruffles. These are all the drama!
But it doesn’t end there. It then revealed these models who walked with their identical twins donning exact same look for a mind-blowing Gucci experience.
Bottega continues to further their narrative on committing to minimalism without compromising quality and craftsmanship. These two latter factors weighed heavily when it comes to this fashion house as a brand. Printing a legible Bottega label on their pieces does not equate to them as a brand, but rather making sure they land as the top-tier quality product maker. This then translated yet again, following the debut of the creative director of the brand: Matthieu Blazy.
The collection features one of a kind flannel-like, denim-like, and cotton-like pieces. Yes! You read it right! They aren’t what they look like! Indeed, Bottega won’t release clothes that are hundreds and thousands of dollars worth for just cotton or denim pieces. Because, it’s all leather made!
Hence, worrying about creasing is the least thing to be bothered about when you sport these chic Bottega pieces. From fur coats and beaded dresses, to power suits and fringe drama, Bottega Veneta has it all for you to complete your Milan Fashion Week experience.
