As the penultimate city in ‘Fashion month’, many people often overlook Milan as it’s sandwiched between the creativity of LFW and the legendary brands that showcase at PFW. But that could soon be changing thanks to both up-and-coming and classic Italian brands upping the ante for AW18.
Whether you’re after a statement feathery jacket, a dance-floor worthy dress or your perfect winter coat, Alberta’s latest collection had it all! Her designs exemplified why a neutral colour palette of beige, brown and khaki work perfectly for a timeless daytime get-up, while gold and silver accents added a much-needed update to an all black look.
If there’s one thing Max Mara is known for, it’s their outerwear (especially the camel coats!) so it’s no wonder jackets played an integral role in the punk inspired AW18 show. Proving that the brand can cater to rock chicks as well as polished businesswomen, models strutted down the runway with heavy kohl-lined eyes, OTT animal print and a helluva lot of black.
In contrast to the Max Mara runway, Blumarine embraced softer, more romantic hues for their autumn/winter collection full of dusky pinks, cream and dove grey. It’s easy to opt for darker tones when the temperature starts dropping but we’re feeling inspired to inject some pastel ruffles into our A/W style.
Despite us now being in 2018, Cher Horowitz from the 90’s cult classic film Clueless is still very much one of our style icons so shoutout to Versace for mixing some Cher inspired check print in with the ultra-glam mini dresses!
Burgundy, brown and burnt orange are popular shades for an autumnal wardrobe but rather than dipping into these classic shades for their latest collection, Marni opted for colour poppin’ brights! No need to store away your high-shine clothes just yet, but if you were yet to invest – go bold in either red or blue.
