MFW round-up: Catwalk essentials
Milan Fashion Week was a statement of a more joyful and playful summer, with an abundance of extravagance and drama. Designers were creatively giving a sense of escaping reality through a vibrant lens.
Bold colors and scaled-up prints declared the season's prevalent mood: dramatic and extra-energetic. The extravagant aesthetic took over collections, echoing a new perspective: we’re not escaping nature anymore, we’re running away to a vivid fairytale.
The sense of escapism took over the collections. This trend calls for extra volume, exaggerated details, bold colors and overall statement items forgotten during the pandemic.

Scaled-up prints brought a sense of boldness and tropical feel to statement items. Florals were the choice for a more commercial take, while the bright bases ensured the ultimate impact. Saturated seaside motifs provided a more vibrant and joyful touch.
