Ciao from Milano, where some of the buzziest (Alessandro Michele) and most legendary (Miuccia Prada) designers will present their latest collections. Read on for the looks we loved from the runways on the second day, and click here for even more reviews from the season.
Before Thursday, if you'd told me I'd see a head-to-toe, banana-yellow athleisure look that involved a visor and clogs and actually like it, I'd think you were crazy. But here we are.
Max Mara utilized activewear fabrics for a spring collection entitled "Tropical moderne" that was inspired by Latin American culture as well as its landscapes. It resulted in several looks that felt at once chic and ironic, including myriad visors and tropical-print shirts.
At Pucci, creative director of one year Massimo Giorgetti said in the show notes that he simply wanted to make a wardrobe that's easily to travel with, resulting in lots of jersey dresses and cool swimwear that makes a statement. I loved the short sleeves on this one-piece, which would look as good poolside as it would with high-waisted jeans.
This sequined dress feels as easy to throw on as a swimsuit coverup.
I was obsessed with the apron-style dresses at Fendi, and I'll pretty much buy anything with stripes.
As trendy as underboob might be at the moment, I don't think I'm ready to try it. I do really like this pink cropped sweater though, and feel like there's a good chance it will conceal the entire boob when it's ultimately produced.
Now that I've had the chance to browse this Prada collection without any distraction, I love it more and more. I'd like this Mandarin-collar pajama suit to be my fashion month uniform next season. Oh and I'll take that pink clutch, too.
Suddenly there's a feather-trimmed LBD-shaped hole in my wardrobe.
For Restless Sleepers
Speaking of chic pajama suits with Eastern influence — if you haven't heard of For Restless Sleepers, it's basically extremely chic loungewear for, well, people who are not poor. (A full pajama set costs upwards of $1,000.) But seeing it up close during a presentation at the lavish home of founder Francesca Ruffini Stoppani (aka perfect context), it seemed to be worth nearly every penny: she uses some of the most stunning fabrics I've ever seen. This season was inspired by Japanese landscapes.
Oh and here's a pajama suit made of a lightweight, pale blue suede. Perfect for those cold nights after your heat gets turned off because you can't afford to pay your bill because you bought this chic suede pajama set.
I have to admit Moschino's spring 2017 paper doll-inspired collection is not the most wearable, but the literal "capsule" collection — available this Sunday — certainly is. I was particularly fond of this oversized sweater covered in pills.
