Diversity was the word on the street for the Milan fall shows this year.
“The Italian collections bid ‘arrivederci’ to ruffles and excessive bling, while saying ‘buongiorno’ to everything from austerity to disco glam,” said WWD.
Designers drew inspiration from almost every era possible, from the Renaissance all the way to the Nineties, and buyers pointed out that the broad mix of fashions will give consumers plenty of choices come fall.
“There is so much diversity, which will be good for business,” explained Ann Stordahl, executive vice president of women’s apparel at Neiman Marcus. Some of the most widely praised collections from buyers included Marni, Dolce & Gabbana, Jil Sander, Prada, Fendi and Giorgio Armani, among others. Page views during Milan Fashion Week topped 35 million for Style.com, the home of W and Vogue magazines — which, like WWD, are owned by Conde Nast Publications.
