The Spring/Summer 2023 season of Milan Fashion Week has begun and as we embrace a full return to the runway we bring you the latest from the shows as they happen.
Kim Jones’ latest ready-to-wear collection for FENDI combined the notions of functional utility and femininity. Offering a romantic approach to uniform-inspired pieces and evolving the brand’s DNA for the now. Jones is particularly inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s designs from 1996 to 2022 of which some of the key elements have been given an updated twist for today.
Alberta Ferretti presented her Spring/Summer 2023 collection “Wanderlust” on the first evening of Milan Fashion Week. A colourful array of boho-inspired looks have us longing for a summer vacation already. This season the collection is a journey, consisting of precious elements collected around the world and mixed here and now, with a pervasive sense of eclecticism.
Prada’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection designed by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons offered a sequence of realities – reflection, refractions, and observations. As we have seen in many recent seasons a juxtaposition of styles, silhouettes and cuts offers a modern take on today’s woman who is made up of many facets.
Max Mara’s latest collection was inspired by sun-soaked beaches on the French Riviera. With looks fit for a summer vacation and a colour palette to match, this feminine offering has us ready for a summer holiday! Ian Griffiths was inspired by two key icons in history architect Eileen Gray and photographer Renée Perle who were an inspiration to the creative worlds of their time.
DSquared2’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection contains everything you might need for an uber-stylish stylish summer holiday. A chilled beachside wardrobe is given a bold update with bright colours, statement pieces and experimental fabrics.
Fausto Puglisi’s latest collection for Roberto Cavalli has a much more elevated and elegant approach than we have seen over the last few seasons. While the fundamental codes of the house are still present, this season the Italian designer looked to the forties and fifties to add a sense of sophistication to his designs. We love!
Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s Spring/Summer collection for N°21 was full of romance and seduction. Titled “The Lovers” the designer also wanted to capture the trauma of love – from joy to despair, the ups and downs and the rollercoaster of emotions it can make you feel. A collection of pieces that at first may seem unusual in their pairings, fit so seamlessly together on a romantic journey.
