Milan fashion week possessed the spirit of freedom and the great outdoors
The pandemic has been making everybody feel the cabin fever for months now and fashion designers are familiar to the feeling. With the craving to be outside and wander either in the wilderness or just even at city parks, a lot of the designers from Milan fashion week translated their optimism for a brighter and unrestrained future in their collections.
After months and months of being in quarantine wearing PPEs and cover ups, skin-baring pieces appeared on the runway: micro shorts, skorts, sleeveless tops, and even crop tops. A lot of the pieces also spoke cheerfulness as bright colors and soft pastels materialized in billowy and baggy silhouettes suggesting unrepressed movements.
In this story, Garage editors Rey Ilagan and, of course, yours truly forward our top picks from the collections. From Fendi‘s layered textures to Ferrari‘s runway debut, we are sure you’ll find style inspiration for your next wardrobe change.
Here are my tops picks from the Milan fashion week shows:
It was Fendi’s gentleness while being bold that drew me to their latest collection. It’s like being soft yet tough at the same time.
Etro SS22 Dolce & Gabbana SS22
Etro and Dolce and Gabbana
Because everyone needs a little sparkle in their lives, or even a lot of it. The brightness of Etro’s presentation as well as Dolce and Gabbana’s feel-good pieces spoke a lot about brighter days ahead.
Prada SS22 Ermenegildo Zegna SS22
Prada and Ermenegildo Zegna
The knits, the skorts, the accessories, these genderless looks shall reign supreme.
Erdem SS22 Brioni SS22
Erdem and Brioni
There were also season-less pieces and patterns from Brioni and Erdem which make good staple pieces that are good for sustainability.
For Rey’s selection, see them below:
The brand exudes luxurious comfort for spring-summer 2022. And these two looks are just top-notch easy and effortless dressing. This kimono-like topcoat is a sure must-have.
Fendi and Dolce and Gabbana
Even if there weren’t many denim iterations revealed in Milan, they’re still a go-to for most. Dolce and Gabbana kicks off with embellished jeans, blazers, and sweaters while Fendi seeks for a moderate touch of acid wash for its head-to-toe denim number. Also, the Fendi baguette punctuates the look.
Brioni and Etro
You can never go wrong with a neutral base. For Brioni, the sky blue blazer and shirt transport you to seaside endeavors. Etro, on the other hand, uses its infamous paisley print for a coordinated style. From afar, it almost transforms into a different pattern altogether.
Prada and Ferrari
Stripes and lines are staples to menswear design. In Prada, the clash of vertical lines makes an interesting look, formulating a rich summer vibe. Ferrari debuts its fashion line and immediately becomes a favorite.
