Milan Fashion Week Fall 2013/14

While London designers maybe known for their rebellious nature, at Milan Fashion Week, the Italians proved that they are able to make a big and bold statement with their collections, too. The annual showcase coincided with the country going to the polls to decide on a new leader, after a battle that had largely been fought over financial lines. Although the political future is uncertain, this did not deter Milan designers from putting forth opulent and optimistic collections for fall 2013/14.

High Collars. Collars were high emphasising the Edwardian feel through out the International collections.

From L-R: Francesco Scognamilio, Gucci, Alberta Ferreti, Fendi and Just Cavalli

Tartan. Blame it on Chanel for the pre-fall collection held in the Scottish highlands for more than one Milanese designers paid odes to the Scottish turning the runways into a veritable tribe.

Colourful Fur. Fur was definitely in the air as designers embraced full on pelts with a vengeance to create wholly new hybrids in colour.

Monochrome. The classic trend is still going strong for fall.

Stripes. Stripes were holding court when it came to Milan Fashion Week.

Slits. Next fall will be about thigh baring with slit slashed dresses, skirts and coats.

From L-R: Etro, Versace, Anthony Vaccarello, Gianfranco Ferre and Emporio Armani

Leather. Candy coloured, supple as cotton, and possessive of an inner steel, leather gave a little edge to the everyday look.

Evening Glamour. Evening wear was ethereal and embraced the body beautifully with body conscious gowns.

Off the Shoulder. It’s about wearing that fall off the shoulder with strapless dresses and tops for elegance.

From L-R: Ermanno Scervino, Jil Sanders, Aquilano Rimondi, Genny and Etro

Tunic Dresses. Winter silhouettes will be short and saucy with cute little tunic dresses to make everything better.
