From romantic ruffles to sparkles and sequins, its been a season full of freshness and hope. Here are our edit for the top Spring Summer 2018 trends highlighted at the Milan Fashion Week runway shows.
Many runways presented their front rows with new romantic offerings. From Philisophy’s glamorous frilly lace creations to Missoni’s airy party dresses in soft pastels, and to Etro’s wild paisley celebration of breezy one-shouldered dresses.
From The Archives
The huge throwback vibe was definitely happening across many shows in Milan, where designers mined through their archives for new inspirations. At Prada, Miuccia revived the ‘It’ bag of the ’90s, reimagining her best-selling nylon bag in a fanny pack design and a cross-body carry all decorated with studs and leather. Also, at Versace, Donatella paid tribute to her brother Gianni’s creations by bringing back the gold and black swirls from his Baroque series (first seen 22 years ago). Gucci decorated his rich looks with the brand’s archival monogrammed bags from the ’80s. And speaking of another throwback moment, Karl Lagerfeld introduced his logomania collection, by using Fendi’s iconic inverted Fs (he designed in 1965 for Fendi) that was found on skirts, jackets, hosiery and brown leather bags.
European designers are known for their ageless elegance. This time around the pillars of Milan Fashion Week revived the old time fifties favourite- the pencil skirt. Take a look at Fendi, Max Mara and No21, where the designers gave this sassy piece a bold revision as they paired it perfectly with kitten heels- turning it to one of season’s modern style statements.
For the Spring season there was a great abundance of glitter and sparkles. It first started with Gucci, who bedazzled everything from boxy blazers to accessories, Bottega Veneta progressed into a phenomenal display of sequins fitted-gowns, and Dolce and Gabbana once again goes mad for milennials with their high-shine iconic body-conscious garments.
