MILAN — With shots of bold color on the catwalk, Milan Fashion Week injected a sense of optimism into the spring season.
Buyers praised the punchy prints, fine craftsmanship and bohemian spirit that characterized many of the collections, citing Prada, Jil Sander and Dolce & Gabbana among standouts. “It’s clear that the big Yves Saint Laurent retrospective that ended in Paris in August had a big impact,” said Ken Downing, senior vice president and fashion director at Neiman Marcus. That was reflected in the strong Seventies trend, with maxiskirts and dresses, peasant blouses and a focus on vibrant color.
