Miuccia Prada perfectly sums up the feeling at Milan Fashion Week SS 18, a conflict of interesting, opposing forces coming together. What have they come as? minimalism? Avant Garde? Absolutely fucking outrageous or what? This Milan Fashion week sees the beige combined with the noisy print, minimalism is back but mixed with fluorescent, extravagance. Fashion is mimicking the conflicting political interests of the world today. The right and left battling it out, Milan Fashion weeks designers have decided to play on this.
Prada have created this slip dress with boujie embroidery and and beading, ready for any posh bitch to head out in, but combined with a hippie stye, supporting the activists out there. Opposites attract? Miuccia Prada explains that they wanted to show this political upheaval and play with opposing styles and see how they work together. So, trend alert, throw on a fresh, extra faux fur jacket and mix is with your most basic, comfortable trousers.
As well as your boujie, extra outfits, minimalism and practicality come into the light. With the likes of Supreme and Fila already dropping their collections that worship as many pockets as a they can humanly fit on one garment, we see this trend carrying on with functional clothing at Milan.
Fendi have dropped their latest collection at Milan Fashion Week with a beige fetish on play. Muted tones and earthy colours dominate their collection, with a functional utility aspect about it. The military/army trend that has comeback this season is clearly displayed in Fendis new collection.
Other brands such as Stella Tennant are following suit on the beige/ muted style. Stella Tennant shows this A line skirt teamed with an army inspired basic tee, the perfect minimal outfit that keeps you looking fresh this season.
With Milan Fashion Week still in practice there will be many more trends to come. Watch out for Fila’s first ever stand alone collection at this Spring Summer 18.
