With fashion month having passed, it's time to review the best trends, designers, and collections. Continue reading for KHAMAMA's review of this season’s Milan Fashion Week.
Having just made her Milan Fashion Week debut during the September of 2016, Daizy Shely is just beginning to make her mark in the world of fashion. Although Shely and her namesake clothing line remain somewhat unknown to those who frequent big-name runway shows, the Daizy Shely spring/summer 2018 line managed to portray a finessed harmony between trendiness and creativity. While one might most likely associate a young designer with architectural, art-imitating pieces, Shely’s S/S 2018 line is a testament to the advantage of a piece’s wearability.
As one of the trends highlighted by Fashionista post-MFW, Shely’s newest collection will appeal to any trendsetters who are looking to sport looks with tiers or statement ruffles in 2018. Additionally, Shely channels some of the overarching spring and summer fashion trends such as feather detailing, menswear structures and green color palettes, as can be seen on the runway here courtesy of NOWFASHION.
Although Krizia is not a newcomer to MFW, this season’s collection held a considerable amount of weight among the houses competing for attention in Milan this season. The label - established in Milan in 1954 by Mariuccia Mandelli - made its motherland proud by drawing attention to its newest collection through the use of an on-trend, monochrome color scheme on the runway. With the line's implementation of oversized sleeves and a few menswear-inspired jackets, Krizia's most recent collection will be a must-have for those whom might be looking to support labels other than Prada, Gucci, and other tried and true brands.
Contrary to the aforementioned collections, Stella Jean’s S/S 2018 line went in an entirely different direction. Taking note of the use of primary colors and the folk-inspired details of the pieces that went down the runway, the line appeared to take inspiration from Latin and African textiles and patterns. Select models strutted down the runway with a smartphone extended in one hand, as though to demonstrate the disconnect between the collection’s inspiration and the environment surrounding its reveal.
Having been crafting runway shows since 2013 under her individual label, Stella Jean has been “produc[ing] internally and with a few small African producers” since the spring of 2015, according to the label’s website.
