Stylesight continues its Spring/Summer 2015 runway coverage with highlights of the best denim collections from Milan.

From premium pressed denims to retro ’50s styling, denim-look-leathers and art school surfaces…Milan offered it all this season with an exceptionally bright offering for spring/summer 2015. With such a wide breadth of denim on offer Stylesight gives you the run down on the best denim collections and top trends from the Milan shows.

Prada 

Distinct `70s vibes permeated Miuccia Prada’s collection this season. Looks included boxy blousons and blazers with contrast topstitching paired with sharply creased pants, while lustrous denim and a jewel-tone palette elevated the retro feel. 

Fendi

For summer, Fendi took a more grounded approach, basing its collection around the core of men’s wardrobe staples. Always one to use innovative techniques, designer Silvia Venturini Fendi applied a clever optical illusion to these supposedly normal pieces; what appeared like sandpapered, faded denim jackets and jeans turned out to be leather printed with a new technique and bonded to give it a tactile, rubbery quality.

Andrea Pompilio

Italian designer Andrea took a refined approach to rock and roll this season, delivering a selection of denim silhouettes in clean indigo tones. Key items included oversized denim jackets in rich and raw denims as well as a selection of lightweight coats and shorts that featured indigo shadow patches created from panels that had been stitched up and concealed during laundering.

DSquared2

Dean and Dan merged fashion and art together for their S/S 15 outing with a neon tribute to ’80s New York. Jeans, jackets and shirts were treated as an artists canvas for the collection, with key contemporary artists like Andy Warhol as inspiration. Splashes of paint, stripes of color and embroideries with sketches and scribbles highlighted denim surfaces.

Frankie Morello

Milan design veteran, Frankie Morello tapped into some of the biggest trends this season; graphic patterns and prints, especially stripes, showcasing linear tie-dye techniques in bright red, blue and white palettes. Outerwear was another key focus with coated with oversized denim cagoules, bombers and leather trench coats.
