Our Highlights From MFW

As you may have noticed, Milan Fashion Week happened last week. Although we weren’t able to keep you up to speed on the day to day happenings, we thought we would provide you with our highlights from all of the shows. Check out our top three below. jil sander Jil Sander Presented in the new tower designed by Zaha Hadid, Lucie and Luke Meier presented their first collection for Jil Sander. To say that this duo was more than qualified for this position is an understatement, with Lucie’s most recent stint at Dior and Luke being co-founder of OAMC. The result of their appointment can best be summarised as the best possible ode to the brand’s legacy and it’s 1990’s heyday. Where most brands try to revive collections and aesthetics that were predominant in a past era, very few actually succeed. The duo managed to pull off the trademark silhouettes that Sander, who left the brand in 2000, with ease. So much so, that this collection is enough to make you happy you lived through the 2000’s. Check out the collection here.   prada Prada Always one to leave a lasting impression, Miuccia Prada based her SS18 collection around women and all of their strengths. She stated on her inspiration behind the collection that it was about “Just wanting to change the world. Especially for women, because there’s so much against us, still.” As such, the collection had a militant vibe, one which was amplified by the imagery, primarily manga and cartoons by female artists. Everything from the printing techniques used for the graphics on the garments, right down to the layering screamed rebellion. One that we should all be a part of. Check out the collection here.   fendi Fendi The main theme for SS18 over at Fendi had been put forth by Karl Lagerfeld and had manifested itself in the form of triangulation; a 20th century movement which sought to capture the dynamic speed of the modern machine age. That sounds might interesting, but what of the collection we can hear you thinking. Let’s just say that Fendi have not lost their lead on the rest of the fashion industry when it comes to the technical aspects of tailoring. The collection contains a broad range of pieces that feel more like works of art than clothes, with pieces featuring colourful symmetric, almost mathematically perfect overlays. Other features are surgically cut-out shoulders and meticulously manufactured leathers and furs. See for yourself here. Images via Vogue.
