• Atsushi Nakashima: Spring 2018 MFW
My Spring 2018 season at Milan Fashion Week started with the Atsushi Nakashima fashion show here in Milan, bringing an air of modernity to fashion.
One of the classics of fashion, the trench coat got deconstructed and it gains up to three fabrics and colors in the above look.
Different fabrics and colors in one piece bring asymmetry back to fashion, playing with deconstructed fashion and customizing colors and accessories in a modern way is totally in for the Atsushi Nakashima Spring 2018 collection.
Denim garments are paired with tailored pieces and even the sweatshirt gets an air as a more fashionable and stylish look.
And speaking of denim, it also became the fabric for dresses like this stylish one for the next summer.
Blue, which turned out to be a trendy color already for this Fall/Winter season, especially when in combination with black, it’s probably going to continue here for the next summer:
The play between more sportive pieces and the more sophisticated air creates an elegant collection for the brand’s next summer. Like in this look that makes this sportive combination almost looks like a piece of tailoring.

The Giuseppe di Morabito’s presentation for the Fall 2017/18 collection took place here in Milan during the Milan Fashion Week at the Palazzo Parigi, a Milan’s sophisticated hotel, and it showed us a collection inspired by 19th-century pre-Raphaelite art movement in a feminine and delicate way.

The brand’s Fall 2017 collection brings an elegant mix between a inspiration from the period of the pre-Raphaelite artistic movement which was very strong in the UK, and the current trends that have been changing the fashion world.
The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was a group of English painters, poets and critics in the mid-nineteenth century, in England the TV series Desperate Romantics portrayed this period and its main characters and founders of the brotherhood, the group wanted to reform art. One of its founders was Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who inspired prints and flowers in the Giuseppe di Morabito’s collection for the next fall.

The floral theme is present in Giuseppe di Morabito’s Fall 2017 collection inspired by the flowers of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s autumnal colors and the costumes wore by girls in the art of Evelyn de Morgan.
Couture techniques are combined with the use of everyday materials such as the use of lace in more sportive items, creating a contrast that shows a more romantic side. The contrast also appears in laser-embroidered leather garments like the skirt in the outfit above.
The Giuseppe di Morabito’s silhouettes of this fall collection presented at this Milan Fashion Week are very feminine, with several items with a high and marked waistline.

Past and present meet in this beautiful collection with an artistic inspiration and lots of modernity.
Looking from afar it may even look like a print, but the piece is all done in embroidery with beads that create a beautiful embroidered floral print!

Another collection I checked at Milan Fashion Week was from the italian brand Hanita, which has created a a Fall/Winter collection punctuated by black, red and pink millennial as the main colors of this season. A brand that seeks to keep alive the made in Italy, creating a 100% Italian product.
A young and modern winter was created for this new season of Hanita, the Italian brand was created in 2008 and they always care about having great quality materials and the final garments.
With a presentation at the Grand Hotel et Milan in the Fashion Quadrangle here in Milan, Hanita showed pieces for day and night in this edition of MFW.
Attention to the detail that the fur used in this collection is ecological fur, (as in the leopard coat that opened this post) which is not very common to see at the Milan Fashion Week collections.
This leather jacket was one of Hanita’s Fall 2017 highlights at MFW.
Velvet also showed that the fabric that was in fashion since the previous winter, continues to be trendy another season.
Light tones like millennial pink make this collection elegant and super modern:
One of my favorite pieces of the collection, this beautiful pink skirt:

Another collection that I checked during the Milan Fashion Week was the Fiorinda Bride collection from Le Spose di Carlo Pignatelli wedding dresses brand that presented its 2018 collection, with elegant, embroidered and delicate dresses to fulfill the dream of the most romantic brides.
• Le Spose di Carlo Pignatelli – 2018 Collection
With a collection of beautiful and very elegant wedding dresses, most designs focus on embroidery and lace on the bodice of the dress, although it also brings entire models in lace.
Carlo Pignatelli’s collection is very delicate and feminine, ideal for brides who look for more romantic and delicate wedding dresses.
Carlo Pignatelli became known worldwide for his men’s fashion for weddings and formal parties, currently he also creates a fashionable female and bridal party collection (with the Fiorinda collection and another couture collection for brides), as well as accessories.
A curiosity about the Italian designer: in 1995, he created the uniform of the Juventus football team, showing its versatility in fashion from sports fashion to couture for brides.
The designer’s delicate wedding dresses feature bandeau designs to dresses thin straps and even long sleeve dress designs for the various bridal and wedding styles.
For the brides that are looking for short wedding dresses, they are also available in the collection, for those who chose a more informal wedding or for who just needs a short white dress for simple notary wedding.
