Milan Fashion Week trends
Normcore done differently
Seen at: Prada, Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Sportmax, Max Mara
Normcore gets a new meaning in 2022. Where it mainly focused on looking as normal as possible, designers interpreted the trend differently for this season. The apparently average outfits were more than just average; for example, Bottega Veneta’s first runway look, consisting of baggy jeans and a white tank top, was entirely made from leather. The same goes for Max Mara’s jumpers, who feature protective pads in their sleeves.
Big bag energy

After seasons of micro bags, big bag energy is back. At Dolce and Gabanna, models walked the runway with huge purses, suited to carry all week’s necessities.

The shinier, the better, must many creative directors have thought. After years of sweatpants and fleece, it was about time to find our sparkle back.

The new porn-chic movement from the nineties has made a revival. At practically every show and collection, naked dresses, see-through skirts, and tops that covered barely anything took the protagonist role.
Glitter and glam

Partywear is the new black, except for the fact many designers opted for black as well. Almost every collection provided the perfect inspiration for your next (dinner) party.

Since Miu Miu’s spring/summer 2022 collection, the hemlines have been shortened. While the internet went wild when the show took off, it has quickly adopted this huge trend. And how could it be different, with the likes of Emily Ratajkowski and many others?
