The latest collections from Milan Fashion Week autumn/winter 2020-21 collections
Fendi’s fall/winter 2020 collection was a feminine and quirky affair. Candy colours, oversized sleeves, feminine cuts and pieces made for a playful and elegant collection.
Materials were luxurious and rich, soft leathers, silky blouses, chunky knitwear and the softest furs brought together a collection that oozed sophistication.
Of course, accessories were a talking point as always with Fendi from mini bags to oversized shoppers.
Donatella Versace presented men’s and women’s collections together this season for the first time. “Who is the man and who is the woman of today? The reason I wanted to show my men’s and women’s collections together today is because men and women are equally powerful.” She explained in a statement. “It doesn’t have anything to do with gender, it’s that their power comes from a different type of confidence, both from their sensual exuberance and their minds.”
This collection represented freedom, self-confidence and expression through pieces that could be worn by both men and women as well as key looks that completely embodied the Versace DNA.
Jewellery-style rings are engraved with Versace’s iconic Greek Key pattern. Structured or bonded fabrics give a strong shape to dresses, skirts and jackets to give a sense of power and confidence. Graphic lines, accented shoulders and metal mesh drape over the body creating sculptural dresses.
In menswear, shoulders were broad and masculine while there were sports references, head to toe tracksuits and nylon separates. A new sneaker, the Trigreca grounds the looks with a utilitarian edge.
Daniel Lee’s reign at Bottega Veneta just keeps getting more successful and his latest collection was received fantastically once again.
This collection represents a new movement and evolution immersed in a dream world. There’s no denying Lee is creating what could be considered as the new generation of fashion.
The deep colour palette was accented by bold and bright flashes of strong hues. Elongated silhouettes stretch and cling to the body with luxurious warmth and comfort.
Accessories were quirky – finished with tassels or other modern elements.
