Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 Trends

Milan witnessed several changes when it came to household fashion houses like Gucci and Emilio Pucci. Gucci moved into new territory under the helm of Alessandro Michele that saw bohemian chic with touches of retro for spring/summer 2016. Massimo Giorgetti took the reigns at Emilio Pucci and stepped away from the image Peter Dundas had created for the Pucci girl by introducing a new vision for the brand - sultry, beach party girl layered in modern forms and silhouettes. With all the changes going in the fashion city, these are the trends for Spring/Summer 2016. 

Wide-leg Pants - Sporty elements continue to reign over fashion week with freer and roomy leg pants.
