Milan Fashion Week Winter Autumn 2017

Milan fashion week has just presented its Winter-Autumn collection. Let’s have a look at next year’s must-haves.

First of all, even if you don’t have long model thighs you’ll be wearing “Cuissardes” thigh-high boots in velvet and leather. Everyone will also be dressed in extralong dressing gown coats in black, grey, camel or red, as they were proposed by Max Mara, or in paisley and embellished with fur. In alternative, there will be hood capes with precious embroidery as they were presented by Alberta Ferretti. However, oversize duvet jackets will be the big protagonists of next winter. Red will be the dominant colour for day and night clothing and accessories. On the catwalk, red was used as total look for Fendi and Max Mara or just as a hint for Emporio Armani. Be ready for shoulder pads as they are making a comeback from the 80’s. Velvet will be used not only for elegant suits and party dresses but also for daily sporty clothes. Clothing and accessories will be sparkling and glittering due to materials with metal reflex and crystal applications. T-shirts, sweaters, duvet jackets and coats will have writing on. We’ll see also oversize sleeves enriched with decorations and velvet turbans with floral prints and lurex strings.

Let’s see in more detail what some of the biggest fashion houses proposed.

Prada’s fascination with female seduction proposed feather hemmed cocktail dresses and soft corduroy flares. Also patchwork leather, snakeskin coats, hand-knitted scarves.

Max Mara presented super luxe wardrobe classics. Under the coats were ribbed knits, velvet pencil skirts, turtle neck tops with tailored trousers. Every model was wearing a single colour from head-to-toe ranging from crimson, grey, camel and black.

Gucci showed menswear and womenswear together in a huge representation with rich luxury prints and embroidery. There were flower prints and butterflies in 17th and 18th Chinese style.

Alessandro Dell’Acqua chose coats and skirts decorated with studs and crystals. Jackets were ribbed with baseball trims. 

Exquisite light dresses and skillful tailoring showcased Fendi’s craftsmanship. There was oversized herringbone, Prince of Wales checks and A-line skirt and trouser suits. Every look was completed by knee high red boots.

Roberto Cavalli presented a white and black collection demonstrating artisan techniques in the use of plisse, beaded embroidery, and appliqué.

Versace showcased midi-length skirts with a thigh revealing split and very high heels. Metallic chainmail cocktail dresses, along with embroidered tulle and crystal encrusted garments.


Emporio Armani presented monochrome in Prince of Wales check, chevron and polka dot patterns on PVC, suits and oversized coats. 

Double faced cashmere coats and jackets in tangerine, terracotta, camel and mustard dominated the show at Bottega Veneta.
