It feels like just yesterday fashion month kicked off in New York City, where attendees held on to their portable fans in the heat while taking in shows. But in a blink of an eye, everyone arrived in London to view more unforgettable collections. (We’re still thinking about the romantic rosettes over at Simone Rocha and the reworked trench coats from Burberry.) The latest stop? Italy, where fashion girls spent the past five days viewing more on-trend collections. And though the Spring/Summer 2024 shows in Milan officially wrapped up, the incredible street style snapped outside the venues still deserves your full attention.
We wouldn’t expect anything less than glamorous from Milanese women (and those visiting for the week), considering Italy is home to legacy labels like Prada, Gucci, Fendi, and Versace. Often, you’ll find guests arriving at the shows wearing the latest pieces from these industry powerhouses. Case in point? Last season, Fendi’s Nickelodeon-esque slime green patent boots from its Spring/Summer 2023 collection stomped up and down the sidewalks. This time around, the color-blocked knits and pleated pant skirt-hybrids courtesy of its Fall/Winter 2023 line were major winners amongst showgoers.
