Ciao bella! Now that the style set has packed up its things and headed to Paris to close out fashion month, let’s sit down and discuss everything we just saw from Milan fashion week for the spring/summer 2023 season. Buckle up, because the Italian houses gave us so much to talk about. This is a fashion week that’s historically much more predictable than its peers in NYC or Paris, but with a new class of creative directors at the helm of many established houses and an influx of new labels on the scene, Milan is proving to have plenty of “It” factor up its sleeve.
As for the specifics, Bottega Veneta creative director Matthieu Blazy unveiled his much-talked-about sophomore collection in which Kate Moss opened. Diesel built upon its hype from last season by further pushing the boundaries of what you can do with denim (denim fringe! ruched-looking denim! dare I say, elegant denim!). Meanwhile, Ferragamo celebrated a refreshed look under newly-minted creative director Maximillian Davis and over at Blumarine, Y2K is still alive and well. The first looks at spring 2023 are already exciting us, from fall carryovers like cargo pants to new layering ideas, ethereal sheer, and futuristic metallics. Below, you’ll find the eight most important trends to know about now.
