Every well-dressed fashion week attendee who’s been dashing around Milan for the last week may have already packed up their belongings and jet off to Paris, but one thing’s for sure: they’re still very much thinking about everything they just witnessed in the Italian fashion capital, and they’re not stopping anytime soon. That’s because, despite the fact that Paris is the most lauded of the fashion month destinations, it’s Milan that, in the eyes of many, hosts today’s most anticipated shows.
Maximilian Davis’s Ferragamo, Matthieu Blazy’s Bottega Veneta, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons’s Prada, Luke and Lucie Meier’s Jil Sander—the designers who had a time slot during Milan Fashion Week this season are the ones defining style in 2023. And with that, the trends they send down the runways are important to take note of, which is why I spent the last week studying every inch of every model they each ushered through their catwalk’s entrance—be it a fiery B at Blumarine or a working elevator at Gucci—to determine the 8 that are most necessary to remember for next autumn. See which ones made the final cut below.
