The five brands to watch at Milan Fashion Week

Italy always has our heart. From the flashy showstoppers to the forever icons, Fashion Editor Natalie Petrevski shares the shows to watch at Milan Fashion Week.

Bottega Veneta

Daniel Lee’s Autumn Winter 19 runway debut for Bottega Veneta was a highly anticipated one. The pressure was on to fill the giant void of a post-Phoebe Philo Celine era in our hearts – and he did not disappoint. From long leather shorts and leather dresses, to quilted skirts and the most sought after mesh shoe of the season. Bottega is back.

Gucci

No, this is not because Harry Styles regularly fronts Gucci’s campaigns (although it does help and he is a brand favourite), it’s the anticipation for what atmosphere Alessandro Michele will create this time round. From model’s carrying their own replicated heads in AW 18 to the dark, moody, smoky, pink carpet nightclub vibes of SS 17. Whatever he chooses, I’m always here for the sequins.

Jil Sander

A ‘forever mood’, as they say, and serving major cult status since the days of a young Amber Valletta fronting their now iconic campaigns. Jil Sander is the ultimate in simplicity, a no-fuss aesthetic that is still powerful, sophisticated, well tailored with a strong silhouette. The Jil Sander woman is very well put together, yet also effortless and incredibly cool. The kind we all want to be.

Marni

If not just for my love of all the fabulous accessories. Marni brings a little quirk and delightful surprise each season, and always matched with a strong attitude. Forever unique, with fun pairings of collage prints, embellishments, colours, fabrications, layering and more. A true art form.

Max Mara

Not one for mixing and matching, the Max Mara woman is sleek and refined and wears all her colours in one. Timeless, sophisticated and impeccably tailored. Pieces made for forever.
