London Fashion Week just wrapped and that can only mean one thing—Milan and all its Italian designer glory is here in full swing. Per usual, Milan really brought the drama and elegance as major fashion houses like Gucci, Prada, and Versace ensured their collections were filled with not only industry-leading collections but also memorable moments for onlookers.
To ensure you're kept up to speed on the latest S/S 20 runways, we are here to fill you in on the best looks so far from Milan Fashion Week. Since keeping fully up-to-date with the slew of shows that happen each day, we made it easy to digest for you by highlighting the major moments for you below. Trust us, there are some iconic moments that can't be missed—including Jennifer Lopez in that dress. Yes, it's the one you think it is.
One thing we can always count on from a Prada collection, no matter what the season, is it being inherently "Prada", and that feeling of home is exactly what we felt within the S/S 20 collection. Expected detailing such as geometric shapes and bold color contrasts were very present as were some surprises like the oversized jewelry.
This show was a major moment for Milan Fashion Week as multiple stampedes of models if you will, walked down the runway in mini herds wearing everything from coordinating gray suits to pastel silky gowns. This collection, as many so far this season have been, was extremely wearable. No fussiness or frills, just well-tailored and easily approachable pieces for the chic woman.
Fendi was a true blast from the past and just the breath of fresh air we needed from Milan at this point in the game. There were many innovative nods to the '70s and as more and more looks came down the runway including checkered coats, floral hot pants, oversize sunnies, we were reminded that this is a new era for Fendi without Karl Lagerfeld. And so far, Silvia Venturini Fendi is doing just fine.
Versace, Versace, Versace—where to start! This collection was quite a ride starting with a slew of '80s-esque power dressing featuring power shoulders, stiff collars, cinched waists and more, and ending with...
...Jennifer Lopez. Closing out the Versace S/S 20 show was none other than J.Lo herself as she paraded down the runway wearing that dress (slightly reimagined, of course). Talk about a fashion moment that will go down in history.
Salvatore Ferragamo surprised us a tad with many nods to California-inspired dressing featuring crocheted dresses and separates, beachy prints, and some corresponding swimwear looks to match. The color palettes shifted a bit as the show went on starting with softer hues, progessing into prints and bold brights, and ending in rich neutrals.
Giorgio Armani's S/S 20 collection was one of those collections that reveals more and more to you each time you go back to look at it. What started as a bit of dark suiting ended with a dozen pastel and organza looks. See? This is one you'll need to see to believe.
Not to play favorites, but this might just be one of our favorite Gucci collections yet. The show opened with 21 models wearing some version of a straight jacket as they emerged down the runway which was a moving walkway much like that of the ones you see in the airport. As far as the *real* collection goes, we saw subdued prints (for Alessandro, that is), inventive color combinations, and silhouettes like we haven't seen in a long time. Each look was more eye-opening than the next and we can't wait to see how this S/S 20 collection comes to life on the streets come spring.
