Our Milano Moda Donna coverage continues with Marni, Trussardi, Missoni and Salvatore Ferragamo, plus a highlight reel from Sunday’s shows.
On the second-to-last day at fashion week, Marni pulled off colour blocking at Milano beautifully, with splendid collars and capes in red and grey. While the Marni at H&M collaboration is wonderful in making the label accessible, this was at another (higher) level.
Trussardi, meanwhile, took its inspiration from the Peruvian Andes, thanks to designer Umit Benan Şahin, working on the label for his second womenswear show. The Trussardi woman is well equipped to tackle the climb in oversized blazers, tailored coats and a generally masculine look, and thank goodness, too, that Sahin did not rest on a black foundation as reds, browns and greens made up his palette.
Missoni showed stoles and coats for autumn–winter at the Universita Statale, while light browns and paisleys seemed to conﬁrm that it was all back to the 1970s. We did like the blue–grey shades, reﬂecting the concrete jungle that inspired the collection.
It was back to black at Salvatore Ferragamo, with a military-inspired collection, featuring coats, capes and blazers, some double-breasted, and belts cinched at the waist. The latter half of the show was more colourful and expressive, as creative director Massimiliano Giornetti explored a more Bohemian, tribal chic with a mauve and red palette.
