Milan Fashion Week is coming and these are the brands to be watching

When the moon hits your eye. It’s time for a Milano-style burst of Fashion Week creativity, and Fashion Editor Natalie Petrevski shares the ones you need to be watching this season.

Prada

Unexpected pieces, styled together just so. From lightweight sweaters, statement shell necklaces, pencil skirts, embroidered leather and chunky loafers – Miuccia Prada makes it look good and effortlessly cool. Here’s to some AW 20 creativity.

Fendi

Proof that raiding your grandma’s closet is well worth it to find those one-of-a-kind pieces. Spring Summer 20 saw oversized glasses, coloured socks paired with sandals, curtain floral prints and lots of texture. Longing for another Fendi themed season.

Marni

The right direction. Francesco Risso is putting sustainability at the forefront of his Marni shows. Last season saw a recycled jungle set build complete with recompressed cardboard benches for guest seating, and the use of up-cycled and organic textiles for collection pieces. Creativity with purpose - we're excited for a new season with positive hope.

Gucci

Gucci Orgasmique. It was a new direction for Alessandro last season, stripping it way back and swapping his signature more is more uniform for a sleeker, sexier Gucci silhouette. Low cut lace, skin-tight leathers and an abundance of sheer. The only constant is change, and the new Gucci is a welcome one. Here’s to evolving.

Ports 1961

I have a soft spot for Hawaiian party shirts and Ports 1961 always delivers, with an abundance of colours and prints and fabric fusions. This season sees Karl Templer move to the Milan circuit, which might also lead to new inspirations? Time will tell.
