It was a long time since I last attended a Milan Fashion Week and I really liked the a/w 18-19 collections I saw. As always, I’ll give you a recap of all the fashion shows and presentations I’ve witnessed, trying to capture the trends I’ve identified and show you the clothes and outfits that I liked the most. In this post I’m going to talk about the two fashion shows that I’ve seen: Francesca Liberatore and Piccione.Piccione, two different collections but both very feminine and rich in colors and interesting combinations.
The designer who has shown her collections for seven seasons during New York Fashion Week, returns to Milan with a collection full of colors, embroidery and precious fabrics with an inspiration from her journey to Pakistan to promote industrial development and environmental sustainability. But Pakistan is not the only inspiration for this collection, in fact you can see many references to New York and its skyline as if to pay homage to the city where the Roman designer has develeped her style. I loved the precious embroidery, the choice of fabrics and the feminine outfits combined with maxi coats and maxi shoes.

The second show I attended was that of Piccione.Piccione held in the amazing location of the Salone delle Cariatidi of Palazzo Reale. The collection was fully adapted to a location so precious, which brings on the catwalk garments that are almost works of art. The Sicilian stylist is inspired by Kandinsky for his collection with romantic but at the same time very modern tones. I loved the color choice that mainly uses primary colors like blue, yellow and red. In particular, I found superlative the wonderful semitransparent red embroidered dresses of the final. Also in this case you can see the video of the finale of the fashion show on my Instagram profile.
