Marni Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear SS2019

Francesco Risso thought of this collection as a painter’s canvas. A canvas he painted with vivid prints and experimental fits. Models appeared a bit absent, with their futuristic glasses on their heads, simplistic slippers on their feet. They sported loose fitting tea dresses and sturdy coats, side draped skirts, cropped tops, bra lets and deconstructed leather corsets. A leading role of course for boxy bags and arty, chunky and gold colored jewelry. Some say it was too much of an Prada (Risso’s former job) inspired collection. Perhaps some looks lacked the feel of effortlessness the fashion house is so popular for. Yet all the Marni ingredients were there, plus an extra colorful dose of SS2019 inspiration.

Roberto Cavalli Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear SS2019

We kind of went back and forth with Paul Surridge collection for Roberto Cavalli on Saturday shown at a former railway depot. We didn’t really know what to expect of course, other than perfect tailoring. Yet this wasn’t what we had in mind. With Roberto Cavalli’s sexy, animal printed glamazons in mind you’d think Surridge would either completely step away from it or fully exploit that signature. With this collection he did neither of those things. Yes there were skimpy, sensual, abstract animal printed pieces. But there were also fully printed and fully covered looks, like the dress Liu Chunjie wore or the quite masculine fit she sported earlier. The color palette wasn’t as cohesive as one would like it to be and those neutrals didn’t appear to convincing. Surridge wants us to rock biker shorts, cropped blouses, embroidered evening gowns and simple one shouldered summer dresses next summer. Pieces that, according to him, give power to the body and strength to its movement. His sequined sweater Luna Bijl might be one of the strongest statement pieces. Roberto Cavalli launched it’s brand new online platform earlier this month. New designer, new website; all out to revive the Cavalli brand.

Fendi Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear SS2019

Today Silvia Venturini Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld proved just how chic utility wear can be. Their models had lots of luggage to carry down the Fendi runway, but they did so with the utmost class. Their jackets had the largest pockets (and pockets on top of those pockets). Tool kit bets all had a variety of bags attached to them. And if the models didn’t hold an extra bag in their hand they were probably wearing a Baguette (Fendi’s first it-bag from 1977) cross body. And still, with all this luggage the models looked as chic as can be. Their hair tied in a bum on their heads and an earpiece in just one ear. In fact all these functional additions gave their looks an extra boost of coolness. Kendall sported an oversized white bomber jacket with nothing underneath it. Gigi Hadid sported a pair of camo colored cargo pants and a cropped top (Tomb Raider style). There were cropped fur jackets and transparent raincoats. There were heavy leather skirts and light pleated ones. We saw busy nature inspired/exotic parrot prints and of course the FF logo (which is all the rage right now) popped up a few times. But in stead of the easy score of exploiting the logomania trend just a bit more while it’s hot, Fendi has moved on. From logo to luggage; utility mode ON!

Jil Sander Catwalk Fashion Show Milan Womenswear SS2019

For the presentation of Luke and Lucie Meier’s third collection for Jil Sander we gathered in an old panettone factory in Milan. An industrial backdrop to a sophisticated, simple yet utterly interesting collection. This was workwear with a chic twist. Like uniform inspired pantsuits, three button blazers, an oversized striped caftan and stiff fully buttoned shirts. And we’re still trying to wrap our heads around the see through denim sections. Remarkable were there chunky slippers and tiny duffel bags. Fabrics were sturdy, the color palette of blues and beiges often monochrome, the silhouette loose and easy going. In fact every single design that came down the runway carried the ‘effortless’ label as the fresh faced models looked cool, calm & collected.

Dries van Noten Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2018

Staying warm and looking sharp never worked togther so glamorously as they did at Dries van Noten’s fall/winter collection at the Parisian Hôtel de Ville. The Belgian designer beautifully mixed silk blouses with fur detailed skirts and heavy coats with elegant (pajama like) trousers. He introduced (art deco inspired) printed parkas and bright colored stoles, printed boots to match. Checked suits and silky dresses in the mix. Zipped up jackets and jogger pants for a luxury, sportive touch. How perfectly the mix of textures (all in house textiles) turned out. Doodle details were everywhere throughout the collection, dresses, coats and bags were trimmed in feathers and fur. Statement earrings and bags as the only accessories. A touch of red eye shadow to top it all off.

The fashion train has ended at it’s last stop and the fashion crowd is rocking it’s final and most photogenic streetstyles at Paris Fashion Week. But before we discuss what’s new with LV, Givenchy and Chanel, let’s recap what styles Milano brought us for the new season. And there is lots to discuss. Gucci and Prada both scaled down the size of their shows. There were drones (Dolce & Gabbana) and dragons (Gucci) on the runway. We witnessed shows at a race court (Tommy Hilfiger) as well as in a hoarder’s garage (Marni). Bottega Veneta left Milan Fashion Week and Tommy Hilfiger landed his tour in de Italian city. There was a good game of dressing up (Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci) as well as some dressing down (Missoni, Marni). The seventies (Etro, Ferragamo) were a big theme as well as the eighties (Albera Ferretti, Versace). Belts (Marni, Etro) and blankets (MSGM, Jil Sander) both formed big trends as we went from bright and colourful (Moschino) to off colour (Max Mara). Have we sparked your interest yet? Check out our galleries with the 7 biggest fall/winter trends for 2018.
