Milan Fashion Week is always jam-packed with shows from powerhouse brands, but this year, the return to IRL runway presentations is especially intoxicating. Kim Jones staged his first in-person runway for Fendi’s ready-to-wear. Raf Simons did the same for Prada, staging not one but two non-virtual outings, one in Milan and the other in Shanghai. The occasion marked the first time Simons and Miuccia Prada took a bow together since the February 2020 announcement that they would be co-creative directors. Emporio Armani celebrated its 40th anniversary with both a runway show and a corresponding exhibition. Then there’s Missoni, Pucci, Marni, Ferragamo and Ferretti (where Gigi Hadid made her first Milan appearance since New York Fashion Week). Meanwhile, over at Versace, Donatella made a splash once as per usual with Dua Lipa’s runway debut alongside Emily Ratajkowski, Lola Leon, and Naomi Campbell among other supes. Watch this space as we track the latest and greatest looks from them all.
