Ciao, Milano! Fashion month is in full swing, and we're racing to keep up at Milan Fashion Week. Read on for the looks we loved from the runways on day three, and click here for even more reviews from the season.
Sportmax is a brand naturally poised to take advantage of the current #athleisure trend and yet, it's been fairly absent. Maybe that will change with the Fall 2017 collection, with splashy graphic logos and a "Ready Steady Run!" print worked throughout the black, white and orange clothes. That these clothes are impractical for working out in should give them another leg up: The loose crepe de chine dresses and silk jumpsuits are more running out for brunch than running a marathon anyway.
As a brand that has build its business on paisley, it should not come as any surprise that the Etro Fall 2017 collection was dubbed its "Paisley Tribe." What was surprising? How relatively cool and wearable the pieces are. Scarf-print dresses were sexy and modern, while patchwork outerwear will bring your winter wardrobe a few steps up from drab. Unless fashion trends swing towards hippie chic, it's unlikely Etro will ever be at the top of trend heaps anytime soon, but there's nothing wrong with taking a walk on its wild side every now and again.
Marco de Vincenzo
Buzzy Italian designer Marco de Vincenzo's Fall 2017 collection was inspired by the future — which, judging by the overall vibes, is taking us to space. Astral prints breathed a new, young life into fur coats, while flashy rhinestone boots and booties caught the light under demure midi skirts and ruffle-hemmed pants. There were girlie staples, like pearl necklaces and pinafores, given a distinctly modern twist. De Vincenzo knows his way around a knit, and here his Lurex sweaters are the stars of the show.
