Milan Fashion Week was filled with funky styles. From hipster to hippy, Milan designers made sure to represent every aesthetic out there. Let’s take a look at the best aesthetics from Milan Fashion Week.
Milan mixed comfort with style this season, with garments that looked cozy enough to take a nap in. Agnona’s maxi dress is perfect for BBQ’s and picnics, while Bally’s sweater and leather combination makes comfortable look edgy. Dondup’s pink sweater thrown over a ruffled blouse seems perfect for staying warm and looking cute, and Dsquared2’s loose sweater and tank top rocks the runway and the couch. Ermanno Scervino’s chemise layered under a puffy parka shows the sensual side of being comfortable, like a long-term relationships.

East Meets West
The focus was on unity at MFW, as the east and west merged cultures and styles. Attico’s dragon skirt was paired beautifully with a low-cut blouse, while Blumarine and Vionnet went for an entire ensemble based on the east. Gucci’s mandarin collar coat is ideal for picking flowers or perusing the local farmers’ market, and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini’s militant green blouse with fiery red trousers is the perfect ensemble for cocktail parties or brunch with the girls.

Milan embraced gender fluidity this season, with many models looking gender neutral or invoking the opposite gender. Dolce & Gabbana created a masculine suit for women, and Gucci created a feminine suit for men. Moschino reminds us that every little boy wants ton grow up to be a ballerina, while Vivetta throws out gender all together with some funky lip trousers and a flaming t-shirt.
Reverse roles in these fabrics:
Mod can be summed up in one image of a girl with a short haircut in a tight mini dress and big sunglasses, riding a motor-scooter and listening to soul music in the 60’s. Milan invoked the mod motif this season, with Alberta Ferreti expertly displaying this style with a sheer, glittering dress. Au Jour Le Jour mixes mod with hipster with this simple and stylish sweater and shorts, and Sara Battaglia gets trippy with it in a pair of funky overalls. Versace and Emilio Pucci truly understand the mod style, emulating the 60’s in ensembles ready for woodstock.

The hipster aesthetic can be summed up in any Wes Anderson movie. This aesthetic is the perfect combination of nerdy and stylish, which Au Jour Le Jour displays perfectly. Bally’s fur coat and tennis shoes looks like it should be walking the streets of Williamsburg, while Dsquared2’s scout shirt and tutu would fit in at the local microbrewery. Gucci’s basic fur coat shows sophistication, and Philosophy di Lorenzo’s simple shirt is elevated with a sailor-esque neck kerchief.
