The 6 Most Major Trends of Milan Fashion Week SS24

From Versace's colorful 60's fashion-inspired fashion to Gucci's minimalist craftmanship under the new creative director Sabato de Sarno.

Ciao Milano! Following New York and London, Milan Fashion Week took place from the 19th to the 25th of September with all of its sophistication and drama. From Versace's colorful 60's fashion-inspired fashion to Gucci's minimalist craftmanship under the new creative director Sabato de Sarno...

Milan Fashion Week was full of anticipation and surprises as there were many new debut collections of new creative directors at Gucci, Bottega Veneta, and Ferragamo; Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada's creative partnership at Prada; Boss bringing back 2010s back with their collection; 90's iconic supermodel Claudia Schiffer's comeback on runways at the Versace show; lots of famous stars in the front row, and Milan Fashion Week was all worth the wait. You know what they say, Italians just do it better! So, here are 6 biggest trends at the Milan Fashion Week:

Pastels Everywhere

This spring there will be pastels everywhere, runways were filled with ice blues, pale yellows, lime green, and baby pinks. Donatella Versace, of course, put a twist on basic soft pastels and made it glamorous and glam in all silhouettes, making it the Versace way. The Fendi color palette also had 70s-inspired pastel colors, especially ice blue, making it striking with a pop of colors in accessories.

Micro Mini Shorts

Last year, micro mini skirts were the fashion and now, mini cheeky hemlines continue to reign over the fashion world. This spring is about the legs but with only one small difference, now they are in the form of micro mini shorts. They were all over the Milan catwalks.

Glitz and Glam

Quiet luxury? Nope, not anymore. There was nothing quiet in Milano this fashion week. Versace came in full force with a stunning sparkly green dress worn on the runway by THE supermodel Claudia Schiffer. Gucci, under its new creative director Sabato de Sarno, stole the show with their new version of the fantasy bra and crystallized Jackie bag, bringing back the sparkle to the runways.

Electric Green

The cherry red color at Gucci might seem like the star of the week, however, electric green is as outstanding as the cherry red. Roberto Cavalli and Gucci brought fun and flare on the runways to the next level with electric green looks with fringes and bold silhouettes.

The Naked Dress

Milan Fashion Week put a whole new perspective on the saying 'the less is more' this week. Carrie Bradshaw's 90s naked dress is finally back for the spring/summer of 2024. The wet-looking translucent dress by Glenn Martens for Diesel and Blumarine's twist on the naked dress with sparkly gems all over it did not hold back when it is time to take risks.

Strong Shoulders

In this Spring/Summer season, the fashion is still all about business. Bold silhouettes and shoulder pads definitely are not going out of fashion anytime soon and in Milan Fashion Week S/S 24 runways, strong shoulders remained the same throughout the week.
