From head to toe, the top trends are even wilder than usual this season in Milan.
The Colors: Pretty in Pastels
It’s not spring yet, but you might think so, based on a glance at the sidewalks of Italy’s fashion capital. A whirlwind of carefree pastel hues has taken Fall 2018 Fashion Week by storm, worn frequently in solid, single tone ensembles. There is plenty of bubblegum pink, powder blue, and pale lemon. And the breakaway shade is an unexpected, delicate lavender.
The Prints: Jungle Party
Animal print has long been a Milan strong suit. This season, the city’s most fashionable have outdone themselves. Style experts like Anna Dello Russo and Ece Sukan are being spotted in dazzling, sumptuous pieces and there is even some tiger print on the loose.
The Materials: Fluffy Does It
There’s a Russian saying, “Не Пуха, Не Пера,” which translates roughly to “No fluff, not a feather,” and means “Good Luck.” Well, there’s a ton of fluff and feathers this season! Setting aside whatever that means for Fashion Week fortunes, the fact remains that incredibly plush statement coats made of luxurious furs and floaty feathers are keeping Milan’s street stylists toasty.
The Sunglasses: Cat Eye With A Twist
It sounds like a cocktail, but really it’s just what we’re calling the latest evolution of classic cat eye shades. The key to this new trend is the relatively flat top rims, which make the angular silhouette sharper than ever. The It Girl-approved, red rimmed model by Adam Selman x Le Specs is especially popular right now. — jas
