Milan Fashion Week Fall 2014 | Days 5&6 (Part 2)

en Español

If Milan is any indication of what to expect in Paris, we’ll be seeing great color notes, various hemline lengths, a circa 1980s nod, and a medley of fur applications. All in all, Milan presented a confusing but exciting line-up!

Milan Fashion Week 2014 looks to the sixties

Among the various references, a little 1960s je ne sais quoi graced a few looks. Though most favored the mini-skirt, the more formal examples played with old school glamour. This isn’t a true trend, but a directional gesture.

Another Milanese gift is animal prints, more specifically leopard. Though, as mentioned before, unlike previous seasons it is more of an accent than a trend, we have a feeling that it might show up in Paris.

Lamb and shearling were everywhere in New York and London; Milan followed this super trend. What is great here is how the fur and leather can change completely with each treatment. This might be a trend that is here for the long haul.

On that note, when the fur is kept longer and boldly dyed, it turns into a completely new material, removing any relationship to the traditional shearling jacket. Mongolian and Tibetan lamb are really elevating the fashion status of this look. We expect to see more on this trend in the next few sets of collection cycles; it is turning into a mainstay.
