Milan Fashion Week: Weekend Highlights from the Digital Shows and Socially Distanced Runways

As Milan Fashion Week comes to a close with the most in-person runways of the SS21 fashion weeks so far, we have a round-up of this weekend’s highlights.


Saturday saw a range of designers and some unexpected surprises. With four physical runways and ten digital, Milan’s ‘show must go on’ attitude persevered giving us high expectations for events that follow and judging by the intergalactic inspiration by Annakiki and the puppet catwalk for Moschino, it’s safe to say no one’s running out of ideas.

Emilio Pucci

Emilio Pucci SS21

Pucci stuck to their early visions for this collection, flaunting soft and light motifs with the use of delicate patterns, mostly signature prints, and 60s shapes and styling, really reverting back to the brands most successful days. There was a purposely pure and innocent feel to this lookbook: minimalist, classic and practical.

Moschino | Spring/Summer 2021

Aside from the expected brilliance of the Moschino collection, Jeremy Scott came up with perhaps the best way to have a fashion show during a pandemic: use marionettes. The 41-look collection was made miniature for this year’s runway performance, which could not have been an easy task with all the delicate and detailed items there were. This collection featured an array of fabrics and textured with lots of corseted pieces and quite a few underskirts. Scott’s great designs and the beautiful puppets, the show was just the perfect amount of kitsch for Moschino.

Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani SS21

The Giorgio Armani collection stayed classic with the new collection, sporting minimalism and elegance. Armani’s tones of blue, grey, silver and black were prominent, as the lookbook consisted of soft suits, silk pajamas and patterned prints here and there for both the menswear and womenswear.


MSGM Spring/Summer 2021

MSGM opted out of the catwalk with a different concept in mind for Milan Fashion Week; named ‘Self-portrait Of A Generation’, this collection was modelled by twelve women, including an ecologist and a young trans woman, who each styled themselves and directed their own photos. The pieces were full of bold, bright colours, frills and geometric patterns, making it a diverse collection.

Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini

It was evident that some of Serafini’s’ lockdown hobbies made it onto the mood board for designer’s collection this year, as the themes of painting and gardening were consistent in the catwalk show. With colourful gingham, corseted pieces and soft blouses throughout, the collection is definitely made for spring.

Sunday’s schedule featured some smaller but just as interesting catwalks as the penultimate day of Milan Fashion Week, including ‘Emerging Talents’: Milan’s promotion of young designers. There was also a brilliant digital show dedicated to Italian diversity, shining the spotlight on 5 black italian designers in a fight against the loud presence of systemic racism in the italian fashion industry.


Valentino ss21

Valentino had a diverse range of looks for SS21, displaying a mix of bold floral patterns and frills with a contrast of smart chic monochrome. The collection featured a lot of studded accessories and lace and crochet patterning, perhaps the only constants through the juxtaposing looks. There were two statements to take away from this show regarding next year’s fashion and they were the presence of suits and maxi dresses.
