The 8 Biggest Trends from Milan Fashion Week Spring 2017
Milan Fashion Week is more relevant than ever right now, with Gucci‘sAlessandro Michelesetting the tone for a good chunk of the industry, stalwarts like Versace and Dolce & Gabbana drawing Instagram’s It crowd to their front rows, and young brands like Vivetta, Stella Jean, and MSGM invigorating the Italian city with fresh ideas and clothes that actually have a chance of ending up in our closets.
While some trends carried over from New York and London—the reign of the statement sleeve, all-over ruffles—others felt shiny and new, not to mention thoroughly Milanese. Below, get our rundown of the eight biggest trends to come out of the Spring 2019 shows.

Ports 1961; Etro; Fendi
Silky, stripey, and fantastically comfy-looking, many of spring’s runways took inspiration from your PJ drawer. At Fendi,Karl Lagerfeld‘s sport-meets-lingerie collection gelled together perfectly in all-over striped looks paired with tube-sock booties, while at Etro, the pattern took on a more exotic, eclectic air. At Ports 1961, the vibe was unabashedly beachy, inviting you to lounge around in a cabana, take a snooze in a hammock, and check out of the stress of city living in wide-leg pants and oversized shirts, while looking thoroughly chic in the process.
Stella Jean; Dolce and Gabbana; Gucci
In fashion, “uniform dressing” usually refers to one’s longterm commitment to a simple, unfussy look (thinkVera Wang‘s leggings orCarolina Herrera‘s white button-downs). For spring, though, Milan’s resident maximalists are proposing a less ascetic take on the concept, with looks inspired by team jerseys and athletic gear. At Stella Jean, the designer used the soccer field as a jumping-off point, pointing to the fact that the sport is essentially a global unifier (well, except maybe in the States) as reason enough to weave references to it into her signature citizen-of-the-world aesthetic. At Gucci, meanwhile, Michele showed track pants and a beaded ivory baseball shirt with matching trousers—pieces that are sure to fly off the shelves and onto the back of street-style stars come March.
Blumarine; No. 21; Bottega Veneta
Millennials’ affection for all things dusty pink is well documented, but Milanese designers are counting on the color winning over customers of all ages come spring (at least we assume so, since we don’t know many 20-somethings with a grand to drop on a two-piece taffeta set, no matter how enticing it looks onGigi Hadid). Variations on the hue were spun into silhouettes both sweet (Blumarine’s fit-and-flare dresses and midriff-baring tops) and tough (Diesel Black Gold’s cargo pants and combat boots), and always worn with self-assurance.
