Milan Fashion Week is underway and we’re sharing our favorites from the Fall/Winter 2020 season with debuts from Etro, Sportmax, and Plan C.
Etro created its Fall/Winter 2020 collection for the wearer with an adventurous heart, looking at exciting trips to exotic places for inspiration. Blending a nomadic sense with hints of Argentinian equestrian, and a touch of dandy, the season included sarong culottes, embroidered vests, fluid dresses, and riding-inspired garb like suede pants. A palette of neutrals, winter whites, and hues of red and blue mixed with patterns like jacquard, plaid, and detailed Balkan-inspired prints. Presented within the rich history of a portrait hall, standout looks included a long airy dress in a dusty neutral print, a woven overcoat paired with white trousers and a neck scarf, and a blue velvet suit with shorts and a tasseled tie at the neck.
Sportmax confronted our impending hyper-technological future and the constant pursuit to connect with a deeper sense of self. Outerwear was the highlight of the season, seen in like capes, raincoats, and jackets, like a plaid cape with black padded shoulder details, and a red patent dress coat with a belted waist. Suiting was presented in everyday wear and more formal styles—like a black tuxedo with satin lapels, worn over a metallic silver blouse, or the double-breasted iteration in dark gray. Neutrals and deep blues accompanied elements like dark denim, a-symmetrical silhouettes, and délabré upholstery patterns. Highlights included a suede tuxedo jacket and mini dress with the sparkle details, a gray plaid coat with the leather bodice, and a black gown with one cap sleeve worn with long black gloves.
Small, precious gestures defined a sensitive elegance in Plan C’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection. Continuing down an explorative path of its own codes and aesthetics, this season constructed looks from mix-and-matched layering and a blend of masculine and feminine details. Classic prints like plaid, floral, stripes, and polka dots employed a rich palette of purple, yellow, wine, and green. Silhouettes were roomy and featured long and loose hems—like a boxy overcoat in gray plaid, or a pair of below-the-knee culottes. Some of our favorite looks included a floor-length dotted skirt paired with a green plaid blouse and blazer, a black dress with the red leather jacket and white boots, and a multi-layered plaid look in purple.
