Milan Fashion Week FW’13 Trends

We’ve seen the looks from both New York and London, so before we say “bonjour” to the trends in Paris, we need to dish out the latest trends from Milan!  As we saw in both London and New York, leather and fur are going to be huge trends, but as always, Milan Fashion Week offered some fresh new trends including plaid, pastels, and belted looks.  Milan fashion designers showcased a range of styles from punk rock looks by Versace and Fendi to the 40’s and 50’s dapper style by DSquared2 and Emporio Armani.

With so many different trends sent down the runway in Milan, we have put together a list below of our favorite trends from Milan Fashion Week:

Materials

Trends that emerged at Milan Fashion Week incorporated lots of shimmer & shine, plaid, and brocade looks.  Versace, Roberto Cavalli, and Dolce & Gabbana all featured lots of sparkles and shines in different styles.  Plaid was spotted in shows such as Gucci, Versace, and Moschino and brocade details were seen at Emilio Pucci, Dolce & Gabbana, and Roberto Cavalli.

Colors

With all the different colors we’ve seen on the runways this month, it looks like fall and winter will be a colorful season! Bottega Veneta, Max Mara, and Marni brought us rich cognac hues, while Emporio Armani, Alberta Ferretti, and Versace waltzed down models in royal blue. We were pleasantly surprised by the spring pastel colors in shows like Emilio Pucci, Blumarine, and Emporio Armani.

Cuts

Many different shapes and structured designs have surfaced this fashion week season! Some of the trends we saw in Milan featured lots of volume, structured menswear, and cinched waist belts. Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana, and Emporio Armani had great voluminous pieces that combined other trends that we saw in London and New York. Like London, menswear was popular in Milan, especially in the collections of Gucci, DSquared2, and Roberto Cavalli. Belted looks accentuated that feminine hour-glass figure were seen in shows like Prada, Emporio Armani, and Gianfranco Ferre.
