Vogue Paris Runway Report: Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013-2014

Posted: 02/03/2013 00:00

While the fashion pack has migrated north for the start of Paris Fashion Week, Vogue Paris takes a look back at the top collections shown during Milan Fall/Winter 2013-2014 Fashion Week.

The hub of Made in Italy design welcomed the fashion crowd with swathes of fur, mysterious 1940s glamour and rock looks from the ages. As woollen coats appeared at Jil Sander and Marni, film noir heroines from the 1940s starred on the Prada and Bottega Veneta runways.

The vibe in Milan was thick with these heavy fabrics, elegant, elongated cuts and timeless silhouettes, but some designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Donatella Versace and Peter Dundas contrasted the main themes, presenting rock inspired collections dedicated to the folky feel of the 1960s and 70s and the 1980s punk movement. Vogue Paris bundled up for the Milan chill to give you a rundown of the best looks seen on the Italian catwalks.

Look through our favourite looks from Milan below, and see the rest of the shows on Vogue.fr.

Dolce & Gabbana's cardinal red, ornamental rosaries and religious icon prints were a premonition to the recent media focus on the Catholic Church. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana designed a collection inspired by the celebrated Byzantine and Venetian mosaics found in Sicily’s Cathedral of Monreale, and dressed their Byzantine queens in shining gold tiles, bejewelled crowns, black and red lace dresses and artful hand beading.
