Fendi, Alberta Ferretti kick off Milan Fashion Week

MILAN :Milan kicked off its leg of the month-long catwalk calendar on Wednesday, with Italian luxury labels Fendi deconstructing masculine tailoring and Alberta Ferretti opting for dark colours at their womenswear fashion shows.

Milan Fashion Week follows New York and London events in which designers have been presenting their creations for the autumn/winter 2023-2024 season.

At Fendi, designer Kim Jones added pleated skirt aprons and trains to tailored trouser suits as well as shoulder-baring sleeves to waistcoats.

There were also boiler suits with skirts, slashed knits with halternecks, draped and ribbed dresses as well as Mac coats adorned with sparkling sequined lining.

In show notes, Jones said he was inspired by the way jewellery designer Delfina Delettrez Fendi wore her family label’s archive items. Jones works alongside Delettrez’s mother and the founding family’s scion Silvia Venturini Fendi, who looks after menswear and accessories at the Rome-based label.

“It’s deconstructed but luxurious. There’s a little nod to punk and my admiration for DIY, but moved on towards something chic,” Jones said in the notes.

“The first day that Delfina walked into work, she was wearing blue and brown and I thought she looked so great. There’s a chicness but perversity to the way she twists Fendi, which is what I love.”

Jones’ colour palette mainly stuck to pale blue, greys, cream, brown and black. He added dabs of bright colours with pink and orange dresses.

Accessories included thigh-high boots, a trend also seen at Alberta Ferretti, who opened her show with a strapless grey gown.

Further grey looks, often paired with long shiny black gloves, followed – from trousers suits to short dresses.

Models wore long velvet gowns, checked or corduroy suits, belted coats and jackets as well as sheer sparkling dresses.

Ferretti used mainly dark colours –

Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2023: The Best Looks

The Fashion Month train keeps chugging along! Beginning its journey in New York City, crossing the Atlantic for London, and now making its six-day pitstop in bella Milano. And thus far, the best looks of Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2023 echo what designers at the previous cities suggested: after seasons of flamboyance and statement-charged maximalism, fashion returns to pragmatism with clothes you can—gasp—actually wear.

From Alberta Ferretti’s tailored separates and lived-in duster coats to Prada’s lively midi skirts and crewneck sweaters, the Italian fashion houses offer sensible pieces to upgrade your daily uniform. Even Fendi’s androgynous workwear and take on the skirt-over-pants trend (a Y2k-era, admittedly cringe moment in fashion history) felt newly office-appropriate due to Kim Jones’ thoughtfully sophisticated eye. Gucci’s showing also felt tamer than seasons past; Alongside several flamboyantly decked-out models in colorful furs and sheers, a few walked through the 70s-inspired setting in baggy jeans, relaxed suiting, and button-downs, indicating that the brand post-Alessandro Michele intends to make its eclectic maximalism palatable for the everyday.

Ahead, see more of fashion’s newfound appreciation for wearability and other emerging trends by perusing the best looks from Milan Fashion Week.

Lauren Ramsay




Goodbye, London and ciao Milano. It’s the penultimate AW23 fashion week already, and there is no doubt the Italian street style-set will serve up some majorly chic spring/summer wardrobe inspo.

Milanese crowds have no days off when it comes to sophisticated dressing. Top-notch tailoring is of course top of the agenda, with an amalgamation of timelessness that’s slightly edgy – our dream combo at Hello! Fashion…

London followed in New York’s street style footsteps with the addition of metallic accessories in various forms. But eye-catching handbags, romantic maxi dresses and double denim that was given an eclectic makeover that dominated the British Capital.

On the streets of Milan, we’re already seeing a slew of statement trousers and numerous tones of tan (as Kendall Jenner also sported on the runway for Prada earlier today). 

So far on the celebrity street style front, Julia Fox is back at fashion week with a bang after a 1 week hiatus, with a daring look at Diesel. And Jennifer Coolidge sent fans into meltdown after appearing to be in Milan for fashion week wearing the ultimate oversized baggy denim ensemble (it turned out it was in fact British drag queen Alexis Stone, who is known for her life-like creations and channelled her inner and outer Jen Coolidge).

Though you may not want to take ‘street style inspiration’ to such extremes, the editors, influencers and the other VIPs who have flocked to Milan will definitely provide some sartorial schooling for you to take on
