Italy is known for its superb tailoring and ready-to-wear craftsmanship; and Milano, mmmm, Milano… The spot where Italy established designers get together to give the world the best of what they do; just like a dream…
Here some beautiful trends from Milan Fashion week, SPRING / SUMMER 2016 prêt-à-porter collections.
Comfortable but very stylish, soft loose pants in shiny, mate or sheer fabrics had their big moment in Milan. (Images: Les Copains, Cristiano Burani, Blumarine, Dolce & Gabanna)
There was a perfect mix of femininity and masculinity achieved through exquisite tailoring inspired in Italian tradition; ideal to state our updated lady-power. Uffffff… (Images: Prada, Fendi, Costume National, Iceberg)
SOPHISTICATED, FEMININE LENGTH
Looking sexy-gorgeous does not mean showing too much skin or legs… A proof of this were the very long line of around-the-knee length dresses and skirts seen in Milan. Sophisticated sexiness rules! (Images: Marni, Gucci, Vivetta, Luisa Beccaria)
Sometimes more is more; and so it was the case of wonderful busy necklines with flamboyant detailing: Bows, ribbons, rich beading, ruffles, embroideries, mixed fabrics and materials… Lovely excess it was! (Images: Moschino, Francesco Scognamiglio, Gucci, Dsquared2)
There were fluid, vaporous dresses recalling gypsy magic through touches of ethnicity, folk and bohemian charm. They represented clear favorites in the SPRING / SUMMER 2016 Italian fashion collections. Such beautiful pieces to keep an eye on! (Images: Alberta Ferretti, Salvatore Ferragamo, Etro, Byblos)
Edgy and fun leather or leather-like pieces, mostly in primary and secondary colors rocked the catwalks! Mini-skirts and longer ones, tops, jackets, dresses and detailing in cool leather added some of that spice fashion lovers were expecting.

UNDERWEAR INSPIRED SILHOUETTE
Silky and/or lacy; very sexy and feminine dresses inspired in night-gowns, baby dolls and slips marked a pretty desirable and strong trend in the year to come and on. (Images: Alberta Ferretti, Francesco Scognamiglio, Uma Wang, Ermanno Scervino)
SEE-THROUGH & GRANNY’S PANTIES
One of the top trends in Milan Fashion Week was glamorous sheer, long dresses and skirts but with granny panties under to see. No doubt irreverence is a characteristic that must never be absent in our fashion reality; because at the end, it is all about pleasing our spirits and honoring our personalities! So, live it on!
