M for Magnifico

The Fall 2019 edition of Milan Fashion Week was a keystone of moments that pretty much wrapped up the biggest OMG moments in fashion the last year. With Fendi showcasing its’ very last collection designed by Karl, Dolce & Gabbana made an appearance post the whole umm..very racist Chinese advert episode. Gucci bounced back from the whole ‘Patrick Kelly/Blackface’ controversy, and Versace went demure #ThingsThatMakeYouGoHmm

Gucci and Fendi went ‘ol school in their tailored to the tee, oversized pussybow drama, and we weren’t complaining. While Gucci and with their very 60s rock ‘n roll vibe and masks reminded us of ‘Iron Man’, Fendi was a somber affair considering it was Lagerfeld’s very last endeavour as Creative Director, and those accessories we loved.
holding1#BigHairDontCare seemed to be the theme running through Moschino, while Ferragamo under former footwear designer/now Creative Director, Paul Andrew, gave us an entire collection built on archival material of a shoe, and boy did he wow us. Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini was very young, very cool, and was just what all the PYT’s would be in on a night out.
Jil Sander was a multitude of whites, blacks and browns in the finest jumpsuits, button-down dresses and coats. Marni showed off some gorjus digitally-printed maxi dresses in the most luxe of silks. Max Mara was all about the all powerful #girlboss with knee-high boots, perfectly tailored overcoats and longline cardigans thrown over matching polo necks.

Versace harked back to the 90s with sultry dresses, structured jackets, and had its signature prints play peekaboo underneath some. Tod’s went full-on leather (we wished it was pleather), and had some bada** jackets, skirts and more in earthy tones and plenty of black. Emilio Pucci was luxe at its’ finest – with sheer blousons tucked into the most luxe silken pants, and the reverse too, and we loved those fab frilly dresses and those accordion ‘longbottoms’.

MM6 Maison Margiela was very athleisure-meets-luxe with its’ largely white oversized puffer jackets+interesting knits. Cavalli stuck to it’s fresh take under Paul Surridge’s design prowess, and kept it simple and structured. While Moschino dripped glamour with theatrical 90s-style dresses dripping with bling.
