Milan Fashion Week Wrap



L to R: Moschino, Bottega Veneta, Prada, Alessandro Dell’Acqua

Enticing color combinations emerged on a series of new surfaces in Milan. The once taboo pairing of navy blue and black was engaged by more than one collection, shattering old rules and boldly creating a new sophisticated palette for tailored looks. Seen mixed on a single piece, matched together in a total look, or blocked one atop another, this color combination will continue to evolve. A new crop of neutrals appeared on tone-on-tone looks. Rich shades of nude were greyed-out and deepened with tones of tawny, chocolate and honey. Shades of fiery red appeared throughout Milan Fashion Week, interestingly on rich surfaces like fur, velvet and double-faced cashmere. A new palette of earth tones arose in hues of stone, mineral and charcoal (all materials needed to brave the elements) took shape on sheer dresses, fur coats and chain maille-embellished heels.

    So glad we are getting away from the fashion “rules” such as no black with navy or no black with brown!
