Milan's women's ready-to-wear fashion week will once again be taking place via a phygital format. The event runs from 23 February to 1 March and will feature 61 shows, including big-name brands and new arrivals.
Milan Fashion Week Men's runs from 15 to 19 January, with an exclusively online and severely reduced calendar. Deprived of the majority of its stars, the event has bet on young talent and is introducing 10 new labels.
This year's event featured a free, digital format and included talks from FashionNetwork.com's own editor-in-chief Godfrey Deeny, M Missoni creative director Margherita Missoni and Giambattista Valli, among others.
Without a creative director since 2017, Emilio Pucci is rethinking its creative strategy by bolstering its studio. For summer 2021, it revealed a strong collection, enriched by Tomotoka Koizumi's capsule collection.
Milan Fashion Week kicked off Wednesday morning with a series of virtual events: a where a quartet of brands stood out - Missoni, DSquared2, Herno and A Cold Wall. A season bereft of large audiences, but not of ideas.
The resurgence of Covid-19 in Europe is increasing the uncertainty surrounding September fashion events. Trade show and fashion week organisers are trying to cope, amidst postponements, cancellations and online options.
