Milan is a fashion week unlike any other. With a rich history of designers obsessed with luxury and embellishment, sophistication and superiority, Milan outdoes itself year after year – and Milan Fashion Week Fall 2017 was no exception. My favorite collections found a way to embrace classic Italian style and remix it for a newer generation that is transfixed with street style. Read on to find out more about my favorite runway moments in Milan:
Favorite Collections of Milan Fashion Week Fall 2017
Max Mara was a monochrome dream this season. Every look from head to toe was a lesson in sophisticated, single-color dressing. We loved the combination of metallic, velvet and sheer fabrics, as well as the oversized pants and stunning outerwear. Will we actually wear our coats draped over our elbows come fall? That remains to be seen.
Where we would wear it: Date night at a luxe restaurant.
The celebrities we want to see rock it: Gigi and Bella Hadid.
Alberta Ferretti went in the opposite direction of Max Mara this season, by embracing maximalism and her signature penchant for prints. The combination of gorgeous gowns and oversized sweaters paired with trousers made this a true ready to wear collection. Our favorite looks were those that really went for it with out-there prints and flowing silhouettes.
Where we’d wear it: To a murder mystery ball.
The celebrity we want to see rock it: Rooney Mara.
Les Copains was a surprise to us this season. With every look that came down the runway we were drawn more and more to the overall collection. Stockings with heels, oversized, bejeweled outerwear and classic animal prints had us wishing we were strolling down a charming Italian street with our male model boyfriend who writes poetry as a hobby, but we digress. This collection fulfilled all of our Italian dreams and we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on their future runway presentations.
Where we’d wear it: See above.
The celebrity we want to see rock it: Sienna Miller.
Favorite Beauty Look of Milan Fashion Week Fall 2017
You had us at rumpled, bedhead braid. Alberta Ferretti always brings the romance to the runway, and with this beauty look she did not disappoint. Undone hair and smudgy smoky eyes gave the illusion of a party girl with an angelic side – every vibe we’ve ever wanted to give off. You can bet that we’ll be embracing this look for our next formal event.
Best Front Row at Milan Fashion Week Fall 2017:
Gucci always brings out the fashion heavy-hitters, and with its recent collections it has begun to attract a street style-obsessed crowd as well. Big names like Florence Welch, A$AP Rocky and Jared Leto filled the front row at Gucci Fall 2017, rounding out an eclectic mix of celebrities from every aspect of the industry. Here’s hoping we’ll see these celebrities rocking Gucci’s looks on upcoming carpets!
