Two major Italian brands, Gucci and Bottega Veneta were not on the official Milan Fashion Week schedule. Yet Italy’s fashion capital still had lots of exciting things to offer. Wonder what trends you’ll be rocking next summer? From head wraps to biker shorts here’s a selection of our Milan Fashion Week highlights and a preview of the trends for SS2019.

90s Supermodel Revival
It was a revival of the former supermodels for one. Shalom Harlow at Versace. Eva Herzigova, Carla Bruni, and Marpessa at Dolce & Gabbana. As Guinevere van Seenus walked the Marni runway and Stella Tenant opened the Salvatore Ferragamo show.

It’s a (head) wrap
Armani presented us with some umbrella-like XL hats and Prada introduced a selection of studded crown inspired hats. But the main head wear trend was the head wrap. Rose shaped at Dolce & Gabbana, high up at Etro and Missoni and scarves tied around the models hats at Versace and Max Mara.

Prints on prints (on prints)
Clashing print at all the big Milan Fashion Week names. Naturally at Dolce & Gabbana and Etro, brands known for their focus on prints and more is more sigantura. But Marni, Roberto Cavalli and Versace also went all out with vibrant colors and unexpected patterns.

Bike Ride
It seems biker shorts are here to stay. The trend that was already big this summer is bound to get bigger next year. If it’s up to Prada, Fendi, A.F. Vandevorst, Blumarine and Roberto Cavalli that is. Wear them as an extra layer popping up from underneath skirts and dresses.

Tought act
When even the fashion houses who’ve build a name around their signature of delicate, ladylike designs (Alberta Ferretti) turn to tough looks and use workwear influences you know something’s up. Overalls, practical workwear inspired oversized jackets and all kinds of utility wear (Fendi) popped up throughout Milan Fashion Week.
