Milan Fashion Week Runway Report

Published

First there was New York, then London, and now Milan Fashion Week is upon us. With an eye for emerging autumn/winter 2011 trends, Stylist's fashion team have cherry-picked their favourite looks from the Milan runways. Discover the key catwalk looks below...

  • D&G

    Inspired by Katharine Hamnett’s famous slogan t-shirts, D&G’s bright collection was anything but dull taking on a neon sporty vibe.

  • Fendi

    Autumnal colour blocking was key for Karl Lagerfeld’s autumn / winter collection for Fendi. Burgundy, mustard and jade green were key colours.

  • Maxmara

    Scottish fashion references are massive for next season. Maxmara reworked the signature classic kilt with a glamorous edge.

  • Prada

    Miuccia transformed her spring / summer bold stripes into statement checks at Prada.

  • Alberta Ferretti

    Moving on from her signature nude hues of the past few seasons, Alberta Ferretti injected some bright burnt orange, purple and electric blue.

  • Gucci

    Continuing on from her spring / summer collection, Frida Giannini injected the 1970s trend with even more glamour and sex-appeal. Pairing sheers over a body for eveningwear, long bare legs were the focus.

  • Roberto Cavalli

    The bohemian spirit is Cavalli’s style signature but for autumn the look has been toughened up with metallic details and lacquered leather for a fierce new feel.

  • Versus

    Christopher Kane’s collection for Versace’s second line was slick, polished and grown-up – mirroring his own London collection – but was mixed in with leather, lurex and glitter for a playful touch.

  • Jil Sander

    Raf Simon’s collection for Jil Sander combined inspirations ranging from body-con downhill ski-wear to Diane Arbus’s photography and Cristobal Balenciaga’s original voluminous designs to sharp, modern, wearable effect.

  • Dolce & Gabbana

    As comments from show-goers were streamed live on screens above the catwalk, the duo showed a collection that riffed on classic androgynous themes and sent out half their looks on girls dressed as boys.
