Milan Fashion Week – The Shows We Can’t Stop Talking About
Who’s enjoying fashion month? We love everything about it, the industry politics, the famous faces, the street style. But most of all we love checking out the runways shows, and the looks that inspire us. This Milan Fashion Week, three shows stood out for us as being super interesting, with collections that really caught our eye. Find out more about the MFW shows we can’t get enough of below…
Jeremy Scott likes to make some kind of statement with his shows. And for his SS19 runway he went for a humorous dig at the fashion industry. With the catwalk looks, Scott referenced the busy schedule of the fashion industry. The outfits were purposely unfinished, in a collection titled ‘Unfinished Business’. Notes from the show informed the guests ‘“Fashion today moves so darned crazy fast. It’s accelerated to such a lunatic pace that Jeremy simply didn’t have time to complete the collection. [He’s] been working like a trouper and only sometimes grabbing a few hours’ shut-eye on his sketching desk. But the fashion calendar stops for no one.’
Notable looks from the show included supermodel Gigi Hadid in a wedding dress surrounded by floating butterflies, and a model dragging the fabric from her ‘unfinished’ dress down the runway.
Philip Plein is known for his star studded shows, and this year he featured performances from stars such as Chris brown and Rita Ora. His runway models also had ties to the music industry, most notably 22 year old Hennessy Carolina (pictured middle) who is the little sister of rapper Cardi B. Cardi B expressed her pride towards her little sis in a tweet ‘I could cry I’m so proud of @hennessycarolina !! In Milan walking at the @philippplein show. Hennessy is Soo swaggy, talented and pretty,’ the 25-year-old captioned the video. Also walking the show was Plein’s own girlfriend Justina in her runway debut.
The show did not go without fault, during Chris Brown’s performance fiery sparks fell from the roof, landing on both Edward Enninful of British Vogue and Elizabeth Paton of The New York Times. But it’s moments like this that get us talking, right?
The fashion however, scored top marks. We adore the powerful, dark and glamorous outfits that featured on the runway. It was a show that we believe is a glimpse into the fashion of the future.
MSGM, an exciting young brand, is one to watch. The show was set in a warehouse filled with flowerbeds, plants and shrubs. Illuminated by bright studio lighting, the decor had etheral and eerie overtones, that could have been from an alien planet. Founder of MSGM, Massimo Giorgetti, was supposedly inspired by the Depeche Mode song “Dream On,” and the show featured the motto “dream! dream! dream!” which made several appearances throughout the collection.
The collection was divided into sections for different audiences, and had something for everyone. There was a section of clingy jersey dresses in bright shades of black, red, pink and purple, an injection of brightly coloured floral prints, tie dye tailoring, festival-ready acid wash denim and a host of vibrant ostrich feather mini dresses.
One of our favourite things about the collection was the cowboy boots which made several appearances. We will definitely be getting ourselves a pair.
