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.

Marni Catwalk Fashion Show Milan FW2018

Powerful bright and duo colored looks followed up each other on the Marni runway this Sunday morning. They told a lovely story of strong coats and cosy tea dresses. Perfectly accessorized by chunky earrings (did you see those XL feathers?!), wide belts, platform sandals and colourful handbags. But it wasn’t even the looks of the collection that impressed the most. It was the story of even the philosophy behind it, which spoke of sustainability as designer Francesco Risso called this collection “Techno-primitivism”. “The contrast between our irresistible love of innovation and technology. And the other side, the movements of the soul that you cannot bring to a technological meaning”, he explained. And so the show area had the looks of a hoarder’s garage and we sat down on bales of disposed fabrics. Giving the clothes a second look you could see the treads hanging from every piece of fabric. From the blanket wraps to the bright nylon raincoats. It felt as if Risso had used up all his leftover materials. Especially as coats existed of two completely different parts (because there simply wasn’t enough fabric to make a complete coat?) appeared. And having seen the brilliant turnout of this let’s hope more designers will show off their ethical creative side in the future.

Missoni Catwalk Fashion Show Milan FW2018

Floor length coats, flared pants and dresses were dragged over a wet concrete runway at Missoni this Saturday. The layered, multi colored menswear and womenswear looks are part of Missoni’s 65th anniversary. And so Angela Missoni presented us with a mix of cultural references (Scottish, African, Italian, Jamaican), color clashes and style variations shown by a very diverse selection of models. The textured, patchwork, layered looks had a very vintag-y feel to them, mostly seventies inspired. Airy lurex and chunky knits met each other in kaleidoscopic prints and patterns. Stripes, checks, graphic knitwear and the brand’s iconic zigzags formed a vibrant fall line up styled of with buckle bags, long necklaces and XL hats. Lots to see, lots to love. And we’ve already put that mint green bathrobe as well as that floor sweeping pink lurex dress up on our wishlist.

Versace Catwalk Fashion Show Milan FW2018

Might you already wonder what trends you’ll be rocking in a year from now. Donatella presented all of the musthaves for fall/winter 2018 in her fresh and vibrant show this Friday. In terms of accentuated waists and hour glass figures her models sported classic, wide black Versace waist belts with golden buckles and bustiers that cinched in logo printed T-shirts. She managed to work bright colored footballer scarves (as well as printed silk scarves) and tartan checks into her sexy looks. She re-introduced the ball gown + T-shirt combination. She stressed the power of a little black (belted) dress and has us craving for chunky tassel earrings, animal printed tights and berets. Lots of references and throwbacks to Versace hits from the past. Yet still the show felt fresh and Donatella managed to give us her updated view on Versace sexy. The Versace sexy her brother Gianni introduced back in the days, which we’re currently reliving while binge watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace this weekend. Fashion inspiration and references for years and years to come.

Max Mara Catwalk Fashion Show Milan FW2018

Supermodels Lara Stone, Doutzen Kroes and Joan Smalls, and Halima Adel as well as (the daughters of ’80s supermodels) Gigi Hadid and Kaia Gerber followed up each other on the runway as the Max Mara show started off. They sported extravagant and fierce looks, like animal printed fur skirts, tops and oversized coats. And of course it wasn’t long before the camel coat popped up (look 2, Doutzen Kroes). How could they skip that after the enormous success of their FW2017 teddy coat. But for anyone who’s become bored of this winter hit Max Mara did offer some new coat options. Like black leather trenches, duffel coats, raincoats and military coats (paired with a branded hoodie) to beat next year’s winter cold that is hitting Northen Europe right now. The logo tees that popped up all throughout the show weren’t too impressive, but coat-wise Max Mara’s got us excited. This is not the last you’ve seen of that pink fur coat, we tell ya!

Prada Catwalk Fashion Show Milan FW2018

Heavy tweed coats and neon colored dresses painted the Prada picture for FW2018. The collection filled with nineties styles, digital prints, logo’s and nylon felt sporty and highly Instagrammable. Neon colors represented the freedom of women. “I imagined a super sexy woman waling down the street at night without being harasser. This line is about the freedom of women going out at night”, Miuccia stated backstage. Layered looks had so much detail, we didn’t even get a chance to see everything properly. But the overall feeling was funky and fresh. And so this might just be the collection that’ll put Prada back on the map.
