Milan Fashion Week Wrap



L to R: Burberry Prorsum, Marni, Max Mara, Fendi

In a city known for its unique fabric choices and their innovative usage, Milan designers re-evaluated and refreshed their abundant supply of materials. Brocade and jacquards, similar to those found in home furnishings, were used for coats and paper-bag skirts; lurex blends in dark colors looked extremely relevant. Inspired by family heirlooms, designers mixed materials in a manner that suggested “something borrowed.” The look of “all things old” was made new—large-scale floral tapestries were mixed with textured hosiery, “granny” fur jackets, embellished bib necklaces, and grandfather-sized gloves. With new combinations at play, luxe fabrics like cashmere, satin and alpaca were composed with relaxed tailoring. A savage-chic look was a new approach to fur this season. Worn as a dress with a matching breastplate and gladiator boots, fur was used in its original intention as a protective element.
