Milan is as much about the bold prints and quirky details as it is about the glamour. Not afraid to embrace colour and different textures, the Milanese know how to have fun with fashion and aren’t perplexed by an extreme print clash.
For Milan Fashion Week, embrace retro styles with an edge – think Prada’s 60s-inspired AW15 collection of neoprene suits in jarring green and blue, worn with Mary-Janes and a boxy grab bag, or Gucci’s geek-chic look, complete with berets, pleated leather midi skirts and sheer lace vest top.
The accessories are where Milan’s fashion set have the most fun though, choosing to customise their bags with fluffy pompoms and tassled keyrings. Go for bold, colourful bags from M Missoni that add texture to your look, and vintage-inspired sunglasses from Dolce & Gabbana and Versace for that retro edge.
