Get planning for your AW14 wardrobe with Milan Fashion Week

With one foot in front of the other, Milan walked us with effortless style through the third stop of Fashion week. The AW styles shown on the Milanese runways left us wishing it was September already- and that’s no mean feat.

Our writer Caitlin James is looking back on her favourite MFW collections…

Gucci Frida
Giannini flooded the catwalk with pastel hues, reviving the trend that stalwart Italian brand Versace adored in the 90.

The outfits themselves looked like they could have been thieved from Twiggy’s 60s wardrobe. Parma violet fur coats and embellished shift dresses with knee high boots adorned models. This was boyish romanticism at its best. Moschino

This ‘Fast Food Fast Fashion’ inspired range was Jeremy Scott’s first offering as head designer for house Moschino.

His debut collection was predominantly inspired by McDonald’s red and yellow, but other themes were present, too. Scott unveiled Spongebob Squarepants coordinates and Hershey wrapper gowns, amongst other junk food inspired ensembles.

The show ended with Lindsey Wixson in a wedding dress printed with nutrition facts, a spectacularly obscure and appropriate ending to Scott’s debut show.
Dolce and Gabbana 

This collection was akin to something you’d within the pages of a long lost Italian storybook. Medieval gowns, brocade jackets and dramatic floral shift dresses all exuded fairy tale magic.

Thanks to this collection, and that of Alberta Ferretti -which displayed earthy parkas and rose garland necklaces- we can expect to this winter’s fashion to be fit for a princess. Which Autumn Winter trend are you most looking forward to wearing? Let us know @libertybfashion
