Milan Fashion Week A/W 2014 Round Up: Legends Meet the New School

Other brands given the pop fashion treatment

Milan Fashion Week A/W 2014 was jam packed with trend setting looks from world-renowned designers. Here’s a peek at a few houses making headlines this season:

The iconic House of Versace relaxed their signature body conscious style for a looser fit, showcased by bias-cut dresses that allow for greater freedom of movement and skim the body rather than cling to it. However, Versace kept a hint of their classic edge with military influences embodied by gold buttons and epaulettes to give looks just the right kick of toughness.

Karl Lagerfeld described his autumn collection as brutal, poetic, and full of bonded mesh. Fendi featured many ensembles with a long top over an even longer skirt, a renewed trend that’s gaining steam in design circles. Distancing themselves from their wild fur styles of recent years, this year’s collection opted for more classic looks like brown cropped short sleeve mink jackets. Multi-colored camouflage, metallic quilted waist coats, and bonded mesh pockets rounded out an eye-popping collection from the master designer.

Jeremy Scott and Moschino made major headlines in Milan, partially because of a timing mix-up involving pop sensation and guest of honor Katy Perry. Perry arrived nearly an hour late to the show, walking the runway to a round of boos from the audience. Once the show began however, Scott’s pop fashion pastiche of the McDonald’s brand quickly stole the show, as golden arch emblazoned garments were accompanied by McNugget box handbags and a yellow chained McFries holder bag. Hershey’s Spongebob SquarePants and Budweiser received similar treatment in a truly unique show.
