Five trends from Milan Fashion Week

The five major trends to emerge from Milan Fashion Week so far.

Prada Prada

You can always rely on Milan for two things: exuding luxury and being fashion month’s halfway mark. The latter means we can move from tentative to confident in our breakdown of the trends for Spring ’14. Despite the different scenes across New York, London and Italy’s capital, discernable similarities have already emerged— so take note.

The graphic print party continues
No one quite owns the idea of print-mixing like Prada and Marni, both of which showed stellar graphics that were as much about texture and color as they were about print.

Gucci Gucci

Skin is in
If there’s one thing Milan has over every other fashion capital, it’s sex. This season there were super-sheer garments, peek-a-boo cutouts and belly-grazing necklines. Gucci kicked this off with its very first look, featuring not only a see-through shirt but also a sheer bra.

Alberta Ferretti Alberta Ferretti

White is trending
The summer shade has been everywhere, including Jil Sander, Versace and Alberta Ferretti, who played on its more innocent connotations. Meanwhile, Costume National showed a more sensual take on the trend.

No. 21 No. 21

The shirt dress is a thing
The look has popped up all over the fashion circuit, from Alexander Wang in NYC to Paul Smith in London. Now it’s made its way to Milan via No. 21 and Tod’s, where embellishments and eyelets send this idea into more wearable territory.

DSquared2 DSquared2

The bra top is the new crop top
As if the crop top wasn’t taking flesh-flashing far enough, now the bra top has stolen its crown. In Milan, shows such as Emilio Pucci, Moschino and Dsquared2 were littered with them, featuring both jazzed-up prints and neutral shades.
