Each year, right in between the Summer/Fall transition, the Milan Fashion Week takes place in Italy, gifting us with awe-inspiring moments showcasing what is to come next year for with the Spring 2020 season. This year’s event took place in Milan from September 17th – September 23rd. Throughout the city, known as a Mecca for fashion and style, celebrities, models, and fashion icons came together to celebrate what’s to come.
Shoe presentations and collaborations from designers such as Jimmy Choo, Gianvito Rossi and were . However Bottega Veneta’s presentation by Veneta’s Creative Director, Daniel Lee caught the most attention. Square-toe sandals are all the sensation this year, and Bottega Veneta is the leading company
Bold, Sexy and Sleek
It wouldn’t be Milan without showing skin in a sexy sleek dress from Versace and other famous brands we are going to list. Milan offers a great opportunity to gain inspiration from the Mediterranean influence of the event.
One of the moments I always look forward to is the closing of the Versace fashion show, with Jennifer Lopez who marched and her reinterpretation of the iconic Jungle Dress worn at the 2000 Grammy awards. This famous dress also brought Donatella Versace into the fashion world. As always the collection is bold and sexy with deep necklines. References to the jungle (and to the safari) are also present in the Dolce & Gabbana fashion show. The two designers state that this is a happy show that reflects the happiness of two people who love their work. The collection is a kaleidoscope, an explosion of fantasies that refer to an Africa contaminated by Sicily. There is no shortage of iconic D&G pieces such as black sheath dresses, corsets and groupers.
The fashion lady, Miuccia Prada, is quite different, reflecting on the contradictions of society where there is “too much of everything” and confirming a simple, almost “abstract” collection with neutral colors and a touch of eccentricity. Eterea is the Armani collection with light watercolor and bright blue fabrics. That of Gucci is instead the parade of the renaissance, but austere with references to the past, at the golden age with Tom Ford that made the brand recognizable worldwide.
