Milan Fashion Week SS21 Highlights

From the biggest trends to the most covetable collections, we round up new season SS21 Moschino and Emporio Armani and MSGM from Milan Fashion Week Spring Summer collections 2021.

The tiniest of runway shows was staged during MFW and no models or guests were present. Instead, Moschino‘s newest styles are sported by Jim Henson creations. But this isn’t a bizarre Fraggle Rock crossover Moschino creative director Jeremy Scott has enlisted the help of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop to create his Spring/Summer 2021 show on a miniature set populated entirely by marionettes. For this Spring/Summer 2021 womenswear collection, they dialled down the drama with elegant dresses with oversized bows and tulle skirts, and dramatic collars and capes, in soft pinks and blues, pea green, gold and black. But there’s also a narrative told through the garments’ inverted details, with corset boning, seams and pocket interiors emphasised on the exterior of garments, and underskirts fanning out below the hemlines.

mf3Giorgio Armani opened his arms to the public a little bit wider with this season’s collection. The designer and national treasure chose to broadcast his main line show on an Italian TV network. Expressing a message of timelessness central to a moment in which ideas about investment pieces and style consistency are key, Armani exercised a grayscale tone-on-tone approach to dressing, which felt universal like a canvas for application. On the women’s as well as the men’s side, daywear was soft, casual, crinkled: democratic tailoring. Voluminous shapes were adorned in chilly coral-like surface decoration, sumptuous and muted all at once. Slouchy pyjama like silhouettes evoked the comfort wear adopted from quarantine. For evening, suits were sharpened and sculpted. Relaxed dresses looked mercurial, an effect echoed in outfits of separates in textures silky, shiny, and shimmery.

mf4MSGM was originally founded as a streetwear brand with an emphasis on youth. And simply put, the spring collection is simple. Giorgetti stated that it was a very different approach for the brand, and he wanted something dreamy and, at the same time, cleaner. Our favourite looks in the collection is the common-or-garden tank top which they paired with an oversized shirt. The attention-grabbing colours on which MSGM made its name are still present highlights include a tangerine suit, a yellow-striped caftan that looks as jolly as a holiday umbrella, and a handful of relaxed oversized shirts with tie-dye detail, but there are muted additions. Particularly unexpected is a beige two-piece with raw edges in a one-size-up fit, and a carpenter jacket embroidered with tiny bunches of grapes which we loved.
