As the ready-to-wear season hit its third destination, we did the obvious—kept an eye out for the most standout trends the biggest Italian fashion houses had to offer. Scroll down to see all the runway looks we loved at Milan Fashion Week Fall 2018.
 

Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani’s take on power dressing was admirable in his Fall 2018 collection—pantsuits in muted greys, velvet jackets with structured collars and our favourite—the crystal-studded pantsuit.

 

Versace

Donatella Versace’s sporty meets fringe meets plaid pieces were a definite standout trend for us—and that wasn’t all. There was neon plaid, animal printed bodysuits, statement belts, minidresses and much more.

 

Prada

Neons and bright hues contrasted with fringe, plastic, sheer and tweed was a trend to take a note of at the Prada runway at Milan Fashion Week. It was an experimental amalgamation of trends (too many, we’d say) all gone into one collection.

 

Gucci

Gucci

Perhaps the most ‘headline generating’ show of Milan Fashion Week, Gucci triggered quite a few sentiments pertaining to their Fall collection. But, let’s talk about the good (bizarre, but in a good way) stuff. Apart from the baby dragon, the severed prosthetic heads and third eyes, the collection was a clash of cultures—Russian babushka headscarves, pagoda hats, Scottish plaid and much more. We loved the powerful collection.

 

Etro

Etro

Chunky tribal prints infused with fringe details are back on the runways and are definitely here to stay—the Etro show at Milan Fashion Week showcased heavily layered tribal prints which was a definite standout trend for us.
