Milan's fashion moment was a lesson in Italian showmanship and a celebration of individual style. Here are the key looks from the city's Spring/Summer '17 catwalks...
In keeping with fashion’s current maximalist mood, designers in Milan didn’t hold back when it came to sequins and sparkle, creating statement-making party-ready clothes for spring.
Prints again played to the prevailing maximalist mood, with eye-popping color pairings creating dramatic daytime looks.
Haute bohemian styles took a historical turn with elegantly ruffled collars and sweeping floor length hems setting a new romantic standard.
See-through looks were another Milan favourite, with many spring styles continuing the alluring conceal-and-reveal trend of past seasons.
Sportswear continued to have a presence on the Italian runways, with athletic references such as drawstring ties appearing on performance-inspired styles as well as adding a modern edge to more traditional designs.
THE HOLE STORY
From micro-mesh to nautical inspired netting, punctuated fabrics were used to add interest to both the elegant and the athletic, a refreshingly softer take on the fabric’s usual subversive styling.
