Best Of Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017 Collections

Milan is always an eclectic stop during fashion month so, narrowing down my top picks was a tough one. (Not that Paris is going to be any easier…) Here are my favourite collections for Fall/Winter 2017.


Versace F/W ’17

Versace went full on vixen for fall with cat-eye makeup and colour-streaked hair to match. Well-cut pantsuits, overcoats, little black dresses, boxy cropped jackets and pencil skirts made a polished stride down the runway.

Max Mara F/W '17

Max Mara F/W ’17

Max Mara mastered good tailoring with unconventional suits with a feminine flare for fall, while playing with fabrics. Wool and cashmere sweaters were often paired with velvet skirts and unconstricted trousers.

Fendi F/W '17

Fendi F/W ’17

Grown-up, innate classiness is the best way to describe Fendi’s fall line. While there was plenty of pattern done in grey herringbone, the “sealing-wax red” pointy boots made the looks more fun. 1925 – the year of Fendi’s founding – appeared in Roman numerals woven into belts and cuffs, and the brand’s logo appeared both in its single and its original interlocking double-F form.

Alberta Ferretti F/W '17

Alberta Ferretti F/W ’17

Venice was the inspiration behind Alberta Ferretti’s fall line, complete with Grand Canal-print chiffon dresses, gondolier stripes on everything from sweaters to an astrakhan jacket, velvets embroidered with the Piazza San Marco’s famous lion, and hooded capes and masks.

Armani Prive F/W '17

Giorgio Armani F/W ’17

Giorgio Armani refreshed the tailoring of the suit through colour, texture and silhouette for fall. A plissé skirt–tapered pant hybrid (with the skirt in front, the pants in back) sashayed down the runway, which was a key element to the show. Colour-wise, a zesty red to equally vivid shades of green and blue were splattered throughout.

Bottega Veneta F/W '17

Bottega Veneta F/W ’17

Bottega Veneta took us back in time to the 1940s for fall with a collection that showcased an illustrated silhouette with a strong shoulder. Think glamorous feminine looks with structured polish, which instantly reminded you of a vintage movie heroine, complete with hairdos set in a wave.
