Milan Fashion Week: your first look at the AW22 collections

Hot off the heels of New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week, now it's Milan's turn to show off with autumn/winter 22 collection by Italian powerhouses such as Prada, Fendi, Max Mara and Gucci.

Here's everything you've missed so far, and keep scrolling for all our favourite looks, straight off the runway.

Versace

The Versace woman is sexy and seductive for AW22, with a penchant for bold hues and bleached eyebrows. 'Our cast of Versace Women for Fall-Winter 2022 is exciting. Girls like Avanti, Anyier and Tilly perfectly represent a Versace with new generation attitude and they champion diversity. They embody the energy running through the collection and the looks built on contrast and tension—like an elastic band pulled tight and about to snap-back with a build-up of energy. That feeling is just irresistible to me. It opens new possibilities and makes things happen', declares Donatella Versace.

Gucci

Alessandro Michele's collection was inspired by 13th century Vincent de Beauvais’ Speculum majus, in which he endorsed the mirror as an essential knowledge instrument, one which made possible to reach a transparent and exact comprehension of reality. 'I’ve always been averse to the myth of the exact vision that inevitably ends up in freezing the immaginific power of the world. For this reason, I wanted to restore another feature of the mirror. That is, building aberrations, enchantments, ghosts. I’m thinking about the magical mirrors described in the catoptrics treatises of the 1600s: mirrors set into precious wunderkammer, that behave like machines of expansion and transfiguration of reality. In these theatrical machines, the weirdness of the optical,' he said.

Prada

Miuccia Prada redefined the ultimate classic wardrobe pieces for the modern women with her AW22 collection. Think the tailored coat, the bomber jacket, the shirt, the vest top, the knit and pencil skirt, all re-imagined with that Prada flair we've come to adore: with sequins, sheer fabrics, faux fur, loud prints and oversized silhouettes.

Fendi

For Autumn/Winter 2022, Kim Jones refracts two iconic FENDI collections through a distinctly contemporary lens, reconfiguring the past for today and considering the house’s signatures with a fresh perspective.

Inspired by Delfina Delettrez walking into the Roman headquarters dressed in a printed blouse stolen from her mother’s wardrobe, Jones excavated the house’s history to rediscover Spring/Summer 1986: a celebration of Karl Lagerfeld’s love for the artistic movement. 'The best place to explore the FENDI archives is through the Fendi wardrobes. And these are collections which, although they come from the past, feel very now,' notes Jones.

Reworking and pairing the geometric prints and sartorial styling of 1986 with the diaphanous lightness of Autumn/Winter 2000, what emerges is a diametric exploration of strength and of softness – a runway of powerful women in beautiful clothes. 'It’s a wardrobe designed for every aspect of a woman’s life, for every generation,' Jones says.

Max Mara

Max Mara's autumn/winter collection was all about playful contrasts and textures. Think caramel-hued boucle maxi skirts and matching coats, bright red puffer trousers, yellow hooded tops and plenty of the camel coats we've come to expect from the lavel.

Alberta Ferretti

A feminine party collection if we ever saw one. Dresses adorned with hundreds of fractured mirror pieces, purple lame pleated gowns, silver separates and glitter as far as the eye could see. For AW22, the Alberta Ferretti woman is back, and she means business.

Roberto Cavalli

Fausto Puglisi's first collection for Roberto Cavalli was a wild and sexy one. A strategically-place strap here, a sheer detail there, and plenty of animal print adorned both oversized tailored silhouettes and micro dresses. What a way to make an entrance.

“Dial ‘S’ for...” is a hotline to the Seduction and Sensuality of powerful, body conscious, erotic Silhouettes that transcend all and any clicheěs. The Sportmax Fall-Winter 2022 collection is a manifesto of empowerment and a sartorial deconstruction of deeply-engrained fetishist ideals of the femme fatale. By reconfiguring archetypes such as Lilith, the primordial “she demon” and first wife of Adam; Kim Novak, the Hitchcockian muse of Vertigo; Catherine Deneuve, the female predator of The Hunger; the retro-futuristic portrayal of Sean Young in the Blade Runner and the legacy of pin-up cartoon character Jessica Rabbit, in Who framed Roger Rabbit, new sex symbols are born.

Behaviour and habits are not a given, but a change in relation to the moment and the environment. This season Veronica Etro brings the Etro ethos in contact with the elements: the concrete jungle and the wild landscape, without distinctions. It is the idea of getting involved that matters: breaking the pattern, leaving the room, facing what is outside, cultivating spirit and awareness.

In the heart of Milan’s Piazza Duomo, Salvatore Ferragamo debuts its Autumn/Winter 2022 collection. In an immersive setting, inspired by sculpting light artworks, the brand presents its new men’s and women’s accessories and ready-to-wear collection. Womenswear pieces feature dramatic ruffles, an evening wear staple, but expressed in versatile knit. A traditional evening wear shape is interpreted unconventionally in supple strips of shaved by-product shearling. A knit bodysuit, inherently simple, is worn underneath a bonded leather mini skirt. A trench incorporates a wrap belt and wrap scarf into its structure to create a versatile garment wearable in multiple ways.
