One of the most important fashion events of the year has just wrapped up in Milan. During the days of the event, many designers from Italy and abroad showcased their latest collections for the autumn-winter 2018-19 season.
Trending were, as it was quite expected, sportswear with an elegant approach, but also pieces made with classic Italian tailoring.
Take a look at our favorite looks (in no particular order) below!
Following the athluxury and athleisure trends, the latest collection by Emporio Armani was sporty and dynamic, but remained true to the brand’s elegant trademark. Combining elements of dressy clothes with laid-back attire, the Italian label offered impressive looks that made the best of both worlds, both in styling and the pieces themselves. For example, this look features a dress jacket paired with pants that are borderline sportswear: sophistication both in the pieces and the styling.
This look from the Ermenegildo Zegna collection looked really precise and sophisticated but relaxed and highly comfortable at the same time. The neckpiece redefined the tie and looked really cool and modern: a true new accessory for the 21st century that should get more traction in our opinion.
Dolce & Gabbana
Dolce & Gabbana’s massive collection was a throwback to the regency era, which the brand reinterpreted in a modern and sophisticated manner. While the brand did put out there some impressive collections during the last season, this collection was extremely opulent and regal. In many ways, it was a masculine version of couture. We loved the v-shaped lines of the garments, the careful embroideries, the subdued patterns and the soft colors.
Versace’s collection really left us bouche bée with their opulent ostentatiousness. We loved looks like this one because they looked really amazing but also carried a metastory about how today people are extremely showy. Moreover, the collection and this look in particular confirm the trend of the come-back of the importance of labels, which has been discussed at the end of last year.
This DSquared2 outfit was very country and very contemporary. While in many ways it was a classic Western look, it was updated with a nice, flowy neckpiece and a slim fit.
Being ahead of the curve, Giorgio Armani also offered a collection consisting of high-elegance looks. Extremely refined tailoring, sharp lines and luxury fabrics were the elements that defined the collection. We especially loved the layering and the styling, which looked rich even though most clothes were neutral in color.
As one can see in our fashion edit, Milan was this time around on top of the trends, but most looks had a strong and masculine vibe. Moreover, they were all very wearable and ready to be worn right as they walked down the runway, or, of course modified. And that’s what we love about Milan Fashion Week in general.
