Trust the Milan shows to amp up the drama.

Now that New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week are done, the fashion world’s attention is turning firmly to Milan Fashion Week for the second part of fashion month – it’s expected to bring plenty of drama, as it always does.

New York and London saw some pretty fabulous trends emerge, such as pastel suits, glitter dresses and oversized shirts. But some might say some brands play it a bit safe compared to their Italian colleagues.

All the big fashion houses, including Moschino, Prada, Versace, Pucci and Fendi are presenting their Spring/Summer 2017 ready-to-wear collections, and we can’t wait to see their dreamy (and extravagant) catwalk displays.

Already, Gucci brought back the 80s with pastel tracksuits and 3D glasses. For a more muted look, Alberta Ferreti went for metallic slips and pastel shirts.

Obviously, you can always count on Moschino for a bit of a fun production – we’re still obsessed with the Barbie and Sponge Bob collections – and this time round My Little Pony and giant bouquets took centre stage. Because Moschino.

And while least season, Prada was all about feather trimmings and embellishments, for Spring, the collection was much less girly. Think masculine tailoring, vinyl coats and studded shoes.

We’ll be sharing the sassiest looks from all the shows, for you to enjoy without forking out for a plane ticket to Italy.

Plus, you’ll be able to see what celebrities like Anna Wintour, Alexa Chung, Penelope Cruz and Olivia Palermo wear on the front row at the shows in our gallery, in case you need even more fashion inspo. Expect all the stylish Italian bloggers and fashion press to be out in force too. We’re looking at you Chiara Farragni and Anna Dello Russo. Don’t let us down.
