Colourful Prints. From polka dots and florals to stripes, prints come in an abundance of colour on the runways of Milan at Gucci, Moschino, Roberto Cavalli and MSGM.
Animal Influences. When it came to spring/summer collections. Zebra – snakeskin and tiger prints featured a lot at Emporio Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo and Elisabetta Franchi.
Halter Necklines. This neckline made a serious comeback on the runways of Milan courtesy of Ermanno Scervino, Emilio Pucci and Costume National.
Lace. First spotted on the runways of New York, lace skirts paired with shirts made it to Milan albeit with more femininity at Dolce and Gabbana, Alberta Ferreti and Roberto Cavalli.
Gingham. This old English classic trend made rounds at New York and London and now Milan. Luisa Beccaria and Stella Jean gave it a hand in cementing its place as one of spring/summer 2015’s biggest trends.
Matching Prints. Forget mixing and matching to make an outfit work. Matching prints from head to toe is back in fashion and Milanese designers all went for it.
Denim. We are used to seeing denim from DSquared and Dolce and Gabbana but now, the fancy blues appeared at Prada, Gucci and Roberto Cavalli too.
Transparency. It was all about light, airy and transparent on the catwalks of Milan. Roberto Cavalli, Prada and Antonio Marras brought this feel in the their transparent and mostly sheer ensembles for spring/summer 2015.
Cropped Top. Either worn high enough to cover the breast bone like at DSquared or just above the navel, this abs baring trend is not going anywhere for spring/summer 2015.
Fringing. The most popular of all 70s influences aside from the vibrant prints, fringes came on all things in Milan like on shoes from Alberta Ferreti, a pleat from Fendi and as tiers at Elisabetta Franchi.
