Fendi, Prada, Marni, and Vionnet: MFW SS19

No contributor

Continuing our coverage of Milan Fashion Week, here we’re showing you the latest from brands like Fendi, Prada, Marni, and Vionnet that we think you’ll love.

The concept of intimacy informed Marnis Spring/Summer 2019 collection, as well as its exceptionally cozy show space. Informed by the past, but clearly belonging in the present, we saw vibrant silky prints, geometric accessories, and new takes on classics (like tea length A-line skirts and bustier tops). Topped with layers of thick blankets, the runway featured a labyrinth of beds, mimicking the ample fabric and layering seen throughout the collection. Some of our favorite details from the presentation included the triangular sunglasses and metallic leaf accessories in gold and silver that accompanied the garments.

Prada

Bringing together the pragmatic and the exotic, Fendi gave us undeniably chic upgrades to the utilitarian workingwoman’s wardrobe for its Spring/Summer 2019 collection. Models emerged from underneath a large Fendi emblem, walking along the white runway in pieces like transparent embroidered pumps, modernized skirt and blazer pairings, and oversized workman’s jackets in a mineral palette of colors like tangerine, sand, sage, and cognac. Some highlights included the handbags like the “Peekaboo” and “Baguette,” which were designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, and the feminized tool belts—our favorite iteration, worn by Gigi Hadid, paired with bike shorts and a cream collared shirt with large, gathered pockets.

Embarking on a quest to reconcile our human obsession with information culture, Vionnet’s latest collection was presented alongside a social experiment, which paid recognition to the saturated nature of the digital lives we lead. Enclosed in a series of glass cases placed around designer Goga Ashkenazi’s Milanese home, models were clad in a series of effortless and lightweight feminine looks like goddess gowns with utility belts and cargo shorts paired with cropped tops and flowing printed capes. Each equipped with an iPhone, the models spent the entirety of the presentation taking selfies, reflecting today’s mode of self-expression.

Prada

A concrete warehouse—complete with transparent inflatable stools—created the perfect juxtaposition for Prada’s Spring/Summer 2019 debut. We saw knee socks with loafers, pea coats with headbands, and collared blouses tucked into knee length skirts making their way through the cavernous runway space. While these might seem like the things found in a younger closet, attributes like plunging necklines, sheer tops, metal studded details, and a palette featuring bursts of colors like chartreuse and scarlet made the garments far from anything that might be worn by the characters in a Dick and Jane storybook. Some of our favorite looks included the leather jumper dress with the sweater and collared top, and the graphic printed coat paired with the white Mary Jane heels.
