Milan Fashion Week Serves Up Spring/Summer 2018

Next spring and summer just breezed down the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week SS18, and there are a few key themes we’d like to see strut straight off the runway and into our closets. Here are the trends that made the cut.

Oversized

Large-scale silhouettes work perfectly in trench coats and classic macs that give a heavily

stylized look. Huge white shirts have a sexy-sloppy appeal, while boiler suits look minimal and chic.

Resort Chic

Vacation styling sees saffron, rust, and rich green tones take inspiration from exotic markets

and spice rack color palettes. Luxury silks and lightweight trousers work alongside beading

embroidery.

Retro

Retro styling has been around forever, but it still has a strong presence on the catwalk. This year we’re seeing vintage geek eyewear and a clashing colour palettes that evoke the films of Wes Anderson.

Sports-Inspired

With strong nods to tacky ‘80s and ‘90s sportswear, this season’s graphic tracksuits were adorned with flashy embellishments, shiny fabrics, and ribbon details.

Suited & Booted

Ultra-smart dressing is on the rise with sleek silhouettes and a slight Old World feel showing

a strong presence on the catwalk. High shine detail sits pretty on sharp lapels.
