It’s almost the end of fashion month, with the final shows taking placing during Milan Fashion Week. So far the New York, Paris, and London shows have been full of amazing pieces and looks for the upcoming seasons, which we can’t wait to wear. These are some of our favorite looks from the Fall/Winter 2018 shows.
In this latest collection by Tommy Hilfiger, 90’s street-cool was definitely the main theme. The collection was full of mixed and matched fabrics and prints in the classic red, white and blue color-scheme the brand is famous for. We also saw a lot of recurring trends from previous seasons like oversized silhouettes, double denim, and logo mania.
Dolce & Gabbana
Minimalism definitely wasn’t part of the concept behind this incredibly extra collection presented by D&G during Milan Fashion Week. “Royalty” was the main theme behind the collection, and the runway was graced by the walks of the Hip-hop-princesses created by Domenico and Stefano. What made the show truly great was that every single aspect of every single look was filled with such detail, from the bags to the shoes, jewelry, graphics, fabrics etc.
Identity, the everyday subject of the current zeitgeist is what Alessandro Michele had in the back of his mind while creating this collection, resulting in quite androgynous pieces. Another theme throughout the collection was layering and contrasting fabrics and patterns, which one might also consider a bit preppy. The greatness of Gucci, however, lies in the fact that you instantly know when something is Gucci, even without the classic Gucci patterns, which noticeably was very absent from the collection. Perhaps as a test of their own identity.
“Me at 15” is how Christopher Bailey described his final collection after 17 years at Burberry. The collection is his interpretation of the British DIY teenage street culture that dominated the 80’s and 90’s, resulting in a very playful and colorful collection, that will probably attract many millennials. One of the highlights of the collection is definitely the logo sweatshirt, referring to the market-stall knockoff Burberry of London sweater that every teen had back in the day. Bailey also wanted to dedicate his last collection to the LGBTQ+ community through the use of the rainbow flag that appeared on various items throughout the collection from bags, to painted on skirts, shoes, hats etc.
