It’s the place that trends are made, traditional fashion rules are broken and fashion history cemented — so it only makes sense that Milan fashion week proves to produce some of the most interesting looks every season.
Whether it’s OTT Gucci head-to-toe or a statement Prada accessory (we’re looking at you, headbands!), Italian women have taken it upon themselves to cement some seriously big trends. Bringing back old ones (tiny sunglasses?) and pioneering new ones, the street style set were in their best form yet, melding heritage houses with new brands for decidedly fresh and put-together outfits.
Why carry a bag when you can fit everything in your pockets?
Forget pastels, high-octane patterns are where it’s at.
Whether it’s a bucket, a cap or something entirely different (we’re looking at you, Anna Dello Russo) a hat is exactly what your next outfit needs.
Blair Waldorf, eat your heart out, because headbands are well and truly back in action.
Teeny little statement sunglasses
We thought we’d seen the last of this trend, but this season it was reworked with a touch of colour — same, but different.
