Oversized tees and vibrant tropical prints bring in the Spring Summer season with Stella Jean at MFW. The emerging label made a strong entrance opening the fashion week with a bang! Reminiscent of Dolce & Gabbana, the prints ranged from tropic oasis’s, fruit trucks, to palm leafs. The art of the label did not stop there, to quirky accessories paired with embellished and fringed flats. The collection as Stella Jean has on their facebook page reflects on tradition,
with “a strong anthropological story characterized by a succession of cultural trompe-l’oeil. The fabrics and their combinations paint a new narrative landscape, where ethical fashion has a central role. This explorative creation is born through the growing collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative of the International Trade Centre (ITC), a United Nations agency.” With such meaning behind a label the collection was a breathe of fresh air for the opening.

FAY

Fay is known for it’s “Italian easy-chic” and this brand definitely brought that to the runway, with models showcasing head to toe ‘cool’ on the runway. With a running theme of the television show ‘Peanuts’ accompanied by sequinned details, creating a playful collection for Fay. Following the trend of trademark flats, the sandals read “it’s fay time” across the strap coming in monochrome and pops of red and blue. Pairing masculine silhouettes with boyish gym shorts that came in nude sequins to blue and monochrome text print to the slender feminine shape of sequin slip dress. Fay brought the fun and youth into Milan Fashion week, especially with the sequinned Peanut’s characters on shirts. This collection is surely one for that Spring Summer fun!

A Digital Fashion Platform favourite is Fausto Puglisi, who stripped back his overly embellished pieces and focused on cuts and prints for Spring Summer. Pairing leggings with gladiator skirts and sandals, the collection kept the true essence of the designer whilst bringing something new. Fausto revisited his favourite mini dress silhouette in black and yellow with the studded detail love affair he is known for, but he didn’t forget to add his old flair on a few outstanding oversized jackets down the runway. The collection stayed strong moving from the spring summer color palette trend of monochrome to blazing oranges and yellows to soothing blues in the final number. A standout piece was the all gold metallic zip dress, definitely has the fashion lovers lusting for a piece from his collection.

Unlike the previous shows, Gucci is rocking hippy chic like no other. With furry vests, leather tie up green dresses and heels with a chunky heel, Gucci played upon it’s signature colors of green, red, green through the collection. The patterns on the dresses had blue waters, flowers and cranes soaring across the pieces which trickled into a double denim and structured jackets paired back with killer brown boats. From all white combos to stand out dashing reds, Gucci covered every Spring Summer event with a unique flair, that was refreshing.
