Milan Fashion Week: The Round Up

After a whirlwind week and a marathon of running around all over Milan, MFW is over leaving behind it a trail of destruction in the shape of confetti, broken heels and blistered feet but man, was it worth it….

This season we’ve had the rollercoaster at philipp Plein; (no really, there was a roller coaster…) and lots of belted shaggy fur,

We were introduced to a new aesthetic at Gucci with Alessandro Michele’s debut for the design house, it’s a collection which has received mixed reviews mainly because of Alessandro’s departure from expectation and from the roots of the brand.

Fendi FW15 gave us our first glimpse of “Puffa Chic” and a heavy dose of 70’s inspired style in a classic Fall colour palette and a whole host of Supermodel faces,

Prada delivered a modern twist on Forties style power dressing in an array of candy colours,

Roberto Cavalli FW15 brought with it the brands signature floaty, ethereal gowns and trademark animal print blended with beautiful bright colours; not unexpected or earth shattering but pleasant nonetheless.

But the real stars of Milan Fashion Week #FW15 were undoubtedly the Italian giants themselves, Versace, Moschino and Dolce & Gabbana.  First up came Jeremy Scott’s most recent turn, and quite possibly his best yet, for Moschino.  With a heavy dose of 90’s nostalgia we were treated to Looney Tunes sweater dresses (I’ll take two), denim and gold patchwork, more “Puffa chic” this time with a distinct street vibe, and delicate gowns emblazoned with graffiti.

Versace was simple and effective, the show opened with bold and glorious primary colour blocking from head to foot followed by hella logos and motifs with a clear 90’s influence,

And then there was Dolce & Gabbana and all was right with the world.  always a crowd please this show was an ode to motherhood and a tribute to mothers the world over, Mothers Day came early in Italy with model mammas and their offspring taking to the runway to huge applause.  There was a genuine show of emotion when the curtain went back and the backdrop was revealed.  That’s before we even get to THOSE gem encrusted headphones…

So whoever you’re supporting or championing in the fashion world, you can’t deny that FW15 at Milan Fashion Week has been diverse.  After a relatively weak New York Fashion Week and a pretty safe London Fashion Week we’ve had a welcome injection of energy and passion from MFW.  So what if i have blisters and i’ve barely slept for the past three weeks?  It’s all been worth it and blisters heal right? Pass the Compeed,

Your move Paris….
