Tod’s Spring/Summer 2025 

Redefining Craftsmanship with Artisanal Intelligence

Tod’s new creative director, Matteo Tamburini, launched his first menswear collection at Milan’s Pavilion of Contemporary Art on June 16. The collection was inspired by the rise of AI in conversation with another AI: artisanal intelligence. With the use of both techniques and technologies, the combination sought answers for the future of human development. 

Continuing in this Menswear collection is the Pashmy Project which began for Tod’s last year. The project capitalizes in the search for materials that have a lightness and softness to the feel in the selection of leather. Tamburini used the quality of materials and the detailing in the garments to create an “unmistakably Italian style” that offered a refined elegance. The collection was heavily dominated by a natural palette of colors with a small notion of blue. The pieces we love included the Field Jacket, Di Bag, Gommino, T Timeless, and Bubble Gommino.

The Ralph Lauren Purple Spring 2025 collection debuted June 15 in an intimate presentation at the Ralph Lauren Palazzo in Milan. Entitled “Ralph Riviera,” designer Ralph Lauren sparked inspiration from the French Riviera, and specifically Cannes. The collection journeyed into the heritage of European craftsmanship and American design, signifying the quality and authenticity throughout the clothing.  

“Dressing for me has always been an adventure. It’s dressing for the day and the moment, for a match on the tennis courts, for a glamorous evening. My Purple Label collection for Spring 2025 is inspired by that kind of living— celebrating a personal style that is effortless and timeless, a quiet sophistication that is confident and always authentic,” Ralph Lauren said in a statement.

The clothing had a range of tonality and texture, brought upon by the continuous mix of Lauren’s signature tailoring and sportswear. The color palette included the vibrant hues of Cannes’ beaches and the tranquil South of France atmosphere of tan, navy, white, and an eye-catching bespoke print. A mixture of natural fibers of cashmere and silk were combined with linen to reflect the fluidity throughout the silhouettes. 


Light & Shadow; Land of Dreamers

Santoni’s Spring/Summer 2025 collection, titled “Light & Shadow; Land of Dreamers,” was presented at Galleria Meravigli in Milan on June 16. It introduced us to “Piazza Santoni,” a space that inspires one to think and create deep within the culture, leading to Le Marche, a community filled with a legacy of pioneering artistry. The combination of these two territories brought forth a dream that drove Santoni’s artisans to master the intensity of color, artful movement, and elegant forms.

Taking a new direction to push the color limits, the color palette came from the artisans indulging into ancient dyeing techniques, bringing to life natural tones of terracotta, quercia, mosto, pavone, urbino, and olivo. Santoni’s Double Buckle men’s shoe offered hand-applied color and a redefined lining. The Carlo loafer was the cornerston’ of the collection, the detailing leaves the shoe unlined pushing the artistry with a hand stitch, and the fabric made out of fine reverse suede.

Canali Embodies the Feeling of a Summer Vacation

The Canali Spring/Summer 2025 collection was set at Casa degli Artisti in Milan. Taking place en plein air, the collection brought a soft and subtle tone forward, reminiscent of days spent lakeside during a summer vacation. Each look was suited for different occasions that ask for a weightless feel.

The silhouettes ranged from tailored jackets in light wool to signature shirts in textured linen or silk. Colors were light and airy, with the mixes of deep brown, aqua, blue, and Isole Borromee greenery. Garments reflected patterns that captured the spirit of the lifestyle paying homage to the tablecloths seen at the lake. Subtle accents of accessories included bucket hats, sneakers, neat cross-body bags made out of leather, and raffia caps. 




This season’s Milan Fashion Week united a mélange of internationally renowned designers, who took to unlikely venues like Italian tram stations to debut looks that were truly inspired. Below, we’ve compiled our personal favorites from Margiela, Moschino, Tod’s, Jil Sander, Gucci, and Marni.
