The Ultimate Milan Fashion Week SS20 Round Up

Milan Fashion Week has to be one of the most packed weeks of them all. I mean I feel like there's even more designers showing this time around than usual. Or maybe it's because I looked through the schedule and was overwhelmed with how much fashion I have to look at. In the best way. I mean give me all the fashion. Milan is renowned as the fashion capital of the world, so it's only right that this week is the most loaded. 

With my PFW & LFW posts, I looked at my favourite shows, trends and streetstyle. Now to refresh this a little bit and to deal with the amount of fashion that I loved from this week, I've decided to pick the best looks from the shows overall, across the board, day by day. Because let's face it, I've definitely got more than 4 favourite shows and the trends are quite similar too. And I don't want you to be bored either. So here's the MFW round up!

Day One - Wednesday 18th September:
Peter Pilotto
Full of bright colours and satins, this collection was bound to be apart of this post. Peter Pilotto is one of those brands I'm starting to keep a closer eye on. The designer's pieces seem to fit my current style and also, who doesn't love a splash of colour?
The brand's SS20 collection takes a shift from it's darker AW19 collection, but still sticks to it's guns. Without drifting too far from signature style, Prada creates a collection that embodies the hopes of brighter days with a serious tone.
Alberta Ferretti
Oranges, blues and neutrals dominated the Alberta Ferretti SS20 collection and I truly enjoyed it. With kaftan stylings and floaty fabric, you can hear summer calling already even as it's just slipped away. Deep orange is definitely going to be the colour for SS20, Alberta Ferretti has called it.
Jil Sander
For a chic, boss lady vibe, Jil Sander has got you covered as always. Structured silhouettes for the working woman dominate this SS20 collection. Feminine Power is the way forward.
No. 21
The brand's SS20 collection was full of small floral prints that are perfect for the next round of warmer days. Combining classic florals with suits and mini dresses is effortless and will truly be lusted after.
Day Two - Thursday 19th September:
Max Mara
You can never have two many suits and Max Mara has got you covered. From neutral greys to pretty pastels, there is not a suit styling you won't like for SS20. Max Mara is definitely one of my favourite brands, with a runway I always look forward to. They didn't disappoint this season!
The Italian brand's first collection with Silvia Venturini Fendi since Karl Lagerfeld's passing in February was not one to miss. Full of yellows and browns, this collection was fit for an Italian fashionista in summer. The tones alone were enough to bring me in, but the patterns, contrast panelling and silhouettes gave it all the much more. 
Bottega Veneta
Bottega Veneta is the brand on everyone's lips right now and for good reason. While it's the accessories that are currently stealing the show, people should not look past the clothing. Everything together is a fashion girl's dream. Bottega will continue to be the brand of not only 2019, but 2020 too.
Moschino continues to be loud and bold with a musically influenced collection full of unapologetic pieces that will instantly stand out from the crowd. While the musical pieces were most talked about, I couldn't help but be drawn to these three styles for my SS20 wardrobe.
Day Three - Friday 20th September:
For the sophisticated woman all year round, Tod's showcased pieces that are timeless - not only for SS20 but forever. These are the pieces we should all invest in. Especially the jackets and coats.
A brand I haven't truly paid attention to before, Sportmax caught my eye when scrolling on Instagram. Like Alberta Ferretti, the collection was filled with blues and deep oranges, repeating the sentiment that those will be the colours of SS20. The floating silhouettes caught my immediately, they couldn't be missed and are perfect for Summer. 
The Bohemian collection of summer dreams. That's all I even need to say about Etro. This collection is stunning and is perfect for high summer nights by the beach. Also, those folded cuff calf length boots - to. die. for. 
Definitely the most talked about show for MFW and it's all down to that finally with J-Lo. Literally, Jennifer Lopez in a reworked version of that iconic 2000 Jungle dress she wore to the Grammy's. Donatella was so inspired by it that the whole SS20 collection was modelled around it, and no one is complaining. Iconic looks that have a late 90's early 00's vibe are sure to be on everyone's wishlists. (Ps. I already need those lace up sandals, ugh.)
Day Three - Saturday 21st September:
Salvatore Ferragamo
Simple yet statement, the SS20 collection is perfect for everyday next season. They are classic pieces that can be dressed anyway that you feel and that's what I love about the Ferragamo collection. 
Ermanno Scervino
Modern elegance at it's finest, Ermanno Scervino's SS20 collection is the embodiment of the chic strong woman. Not afraid to wear strong suits or to put on floaty dresses. The collection presents confidence in the best way. 
Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini
Philosophy is another one of those brands that I truly adore, especially the dresses as you will see below because that's basically all I've picked. But I also have to mention how cute the sailor vibe is in this SS20 collection. I mean, sailor vibes are true summer right? 
Day Four - Sunday 22nd September:
You can never go wrong with Boss tailoring. That's all I have to say. They are timeless staples that cannot be beaten. Regardless of the season, I'd always look to Boss for great suits and coats. Plus the neutral colours paired with pastel accessories is the trend that everyone's already trying. 
Dolce & Gabbana
D&G is taking us to the jungle for SS20 and we're going to be safari ready in the chicest way. The bold prints combined with classic silhouettes keep the brand on it's signature style perfectly. The bold prints are broken up by the sexiest little black dresses that are going to be major hits for all year round. The Sicilian Duo made their statement for SS20 and it's a killer one. 
Last but not least, Gucci. The show started with models in straitjackets, which was so weird but strangely cool. I mean Alessandro Michele doesn't shy away from bold and that's what Gucci is about. After 20 pieces of clean white pieces, Gucci's SS20 collection showcased it's vibrant pieces that were exactly what you expect from Gucci. Reinterpretations of the Gucci logo were the main prints on display alongside surprisingly simple bold colours. The blue maxi dress is my definite favourite, I mean I really need that one.
 And there you have it. Another painfully long post but I think a decent round up of MFW, possibly? I mean I hope so! It took me forever to write up, so if you got to the end - thank you and you deserve a medal or prize (drop me a message, I'll send you chocolate). No, but honestly, there is so much incredible fashion to cover and this isn't even the half of it. There are so many brands that I haven't even shed a light on and it's important that we take the time to also look through them. If you're interested, my best advice is to jump onto the Vogue Runways section, browse the shows, their images and the inspiration behind every collection. It's a great pastime, seriously. 

With that said, MFW - Arrivederci!

Bonjour Paris, mon amour. 

Lots of Love,
