Milan Fashion Week is always the most talked-about fashion event. But this time, the anticipation was even higher, with all eyes on Gucci. Sabato De Sarno debuted his first collection as the new Creative Director of the luxury fashion house, and it seems he made us fall in love with the brand even deeper. Sabato De Sarno's Gucci is all about minimalistic glamour, simplicity and elegance. Legendary brands like Versace, Prada, Bottega Venetta, Ferragamo and Fendi also showcased their Spring/Summer 2024 collections, unveiling their distinct visions for the next season. Now, that the MFW has officially wrapped up, here are 7 trends we spotted from the runway.
Fashion has been celebrating legs in full swing lately, with eye-catching sheer and ultra-short skirts (shoutout to Diesel's belt skirt!) dominating the runways. The trend is still going strong, but is taking a slightly different form. For Spring/Summer 2024, designers are encouraging us to shift our focus to micro shorts. At Tom Ford, models were spotted in leather shorts paired with chic blazers, while Gucci styled them with tailored jackets, white crisp shirting and cozy sweatshirts.
Reflective fringes took the spotlight at Prada's Spring/Summer 2024 fashion show. It adorned floral-printed shirts, dresses, and whimsically hung from belts, almost mimicking skirts. Aside from Prada, Jil Sander, Gucci and Bottega Veneta also got inventive and offered their take on the trend, presenting dresses, skirts and coats with dangling accents.
Metallics are here to stay for yet another season. Milan Fashion Week's runways shimmered with liquid metal-like clothing. Blumarine's 'angel-core' collection featured matching separates in gold, Alberta Ferretti introduced a shiny bronze dress, and Giorgio Armani elegantly paired silver pants with a knit top.
Pale blues, soft candyfloss pinks, lemon sorbets, and refreshing pistachios - Milan Fashion Week was all in pastel colors. Versace's show featured charming pastel twinsets and coats, bringing a sense of nostalgia. For her new collection, Donatella Versace looked back at her brother Gianni's iconic collections from 1995. Prada elegantly embraced the pastel trend with organza sheath dresses, Jil Sander showcased knitted dresses in delicate muted peach shades, and Fendi masterfully patchworked pastels into complex looks.
Denim dominated the runways at New York Fashion Week SS ‘24, and Milan didn't lag behind either. In Diesel's post-apocalyptic rave-inspired collection, denim is cut, washed and layered in every way you can imagine. The brand, true to its essence, presented full-denim outfits, but also sexy sheer and latex pieces. Attico, Max Mara, and GCDS also incorporated denim into their collections, making it a noteworthy trend to keep an eye on!
Shoulders went big at the Milan Spring/Summer shows! Brands like The Attico, Max Mara, and GCDS were all about the bold shoulder vibe in their shirts and jackets, making it clear: it's not just about looking stylish, but feeling confident too.
The oversized shirt trend is definitely one to watch for the next season. It's effortlessly stylish and perfect for mixing and matching. Chic ensembles centered around an oversized shirt caught the eye at both Bottega Veneta and Fendi shows, while MM6 Maison Margiela used it as a versatile layering piece to create relaxed yet tailored looks.
