After New York and London, we say buongiorno to Milan Fashion Week. In the next six days, some of the biggest names in fashion (Prada! Versace! Gucci!) will present their spring 2020 collections giving fashion pros a lot to talk about.
And speaking of fashion’s most famous houses, this season all eyes are on Bottega Veneta’s relatively new creative director (he’s been at the helm since summer 2018) Daniel Lee who, so far, has proven that he can deliver in the accessories department, but can he do the same with ready-to-wear? Versace’s show, too, will surely be the talk of the town since the brand now has a new owner. And finally, Fendi will present its first ready-to-wear collection without Karl Lagerfeld who passed away in February.
And if New York and London are any indication, sustainability and inclusivity will be big in Milan as well. More and more luxury brands are turning their backs on real fur and opting instead for more eco- and animal-friendly fabrics and practices.
Now check out the best looks from Italy’s fashion capital.
