A busy program that includes 59 shows and the presentation of 77 fashion collections
After the launch of the Fashion Month in New York City and the adoption of London as its second stop, it is the turn of Milan to host the activities of the Fall/Winter 2023-2024 Ready-to-Wear Fashion Week. This week’s calendar revealed a rich program that includes 59 shows and 77 collections of fashion, in addition to about thirty events that are directly related to the world of fashion.
The opening of Milan Fashion Week was with the Iceberg brand, which returned to its arms after an absence from its activities since 2018. In this context, it presented women’s and men’s designs of a sporty nature, dominated by the use of wool and leather materials. As for the Fendi house, it was keen to present a group of cross-section designs that explore the duality between the male and female worlds. In this context, we saw her combining skirts, trousers, shirts, and jackets in her women’s and men’s designs with comfort and simplicity. The house’s creative director, Kim Jones, used heavy materials of felt, wool, and leather to present designs characterized by asymmetrical cuts that combine classicism and unique self-expression, aiming to push boundaries and expectations.
The Fendi show started with designs that included light blue to mix with black, gray, and white, then followed by looks in neutral colors. As for the last section, designs appeared that were colored with vibrant gradations, in which red and pink mixed with remarkable elegance.
In Roberto Cavalli’s presentation, creative director Fausto Puglisi maintained the tribal character that is repeated in the house’s designs, which was evident through the use of “patchwork”, animal engravings, leather with fur, as well as tassels and feathers. Denim and lace materials were also used in looks that bear the spirit of the nineties of the last century and the style of the famous model Kate Moss in the field of elegance. As for the Antonio Marras show, we saw a group of 104 women’s and men’s looks that were distinguished by their theatrical nature and were inspired by the works of the writer Grazia Delida, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1927 and is still to this day the only Italian person to receive this award. The designer, Antonio Marras, recalled from Delida’s writings the story of a mysterious experience that brings together different personalities that were embodied in the show through romantic looks. The black color dominated a large part of the designs, and it was mixed with beige, white, gray, khaki, and red, to conclude the show with black monochromatic designs that were executed with tulle and lace materials.
