Milan fashion week came to a close last week, and it sure didn’t disappoint! We saw the 40s look from Bottega Veneta, Prada’s 60s vibe, and romantic looks from Alberta Ferretti. Milan opted for a more pared down look for next spring/summer with a consistent palette and simple silhouettes. We spotted some trends on the runway, everything from military to pastels. Check them out…

Trussardi (left) and Gucci (right) showed us slithery looks of snake skin.

We love the pastel colors that Blumarine (left) and Roberto Cavalli (right) showed on the runway.

Tunic tops were seen everywhere, including at the Jil Sander (left) and Marni (right) shows.

We spotted culottes (the ultimate skirt/pant hybrid) from Byblos (left) and Fendi (right).

Pretty laces walked down the runway at the Alberta Ferretti (left) and Francesco Scognamiglio (right) shows.

Designers Antonio Marras (left) and C’N’C’ Costume National (right) embraced the military look.

What is your favorite Milan runway trend?

    Oh gosh, spare me from the military look… Paris fashion week was better according to me. Though I like how those lace garments are very fairy like.

    Isn’t it just great that there are so many doctors on one forum. Thin woman here (very similar build to these women), within the healthy weight range for my height and frame as verified by multiple doctors, gets called ‘anorexic’ by any number of complete strangers who have NO CLUE what the range of healthy body types look like. These women are not what actual starvation or ‘seriously underweight’ looks like. Would be surprised if any of them were more than a few lbs underweight by current medical standards- hardly on death’s door. Their ‘sunken cheeks’ are a mixture of contouring makeup and the bone structure favored on runways. You see this body type in men all the time; besides some joking about ‘bean poles,’ you don’t see them getting called ‘sick’ or slapped with arm chair diagnosis of eating disorders. Is it an attainable body type for all women? Of course not; no body is. But it isn’t a ‘bad influence’ for these women to be seen, either, or even to be seen as beautiful. Until we stop acting like favoring a type of beauty in one small sphere** negates or diminishes the other kinds, we will NEVER be satisfied with our own reflections. (Sorry for the rant, Burdastyle moderator people, just sick of the misinformation that this subject always seems to bring out.)

    **(and really, when was the last time you saw people actually wearing runway looks in their daily lives? We may draw inspiration from details and design elements, but actually trying to look like the whole package? Not so much.)

    Edit: this is in no way intended to minimize or dismiss the actual condition of anorexia nervosa, which is deadly serious. However, those people who are actually suffering from it need support and help, not catty remarks about their appearances.*

      I definitely find the concern trolling uncalled for. Calling someone anorexic bc of their appearance is rude, just like calling someone a compulsive overeater bc of their appearance is also rude. Judging that someone has an unhealthy lifestyle bc they don’t conform to your ideals of beauty (in either direction) is inappropriate.

      I would like for everyone to keep their body snark to themselves. There are all different kinds of body types on this website. Do I personally wish designers used more varied bodies in their shows and editorials? Yes. But I’m not going to take out my dissatisfaction with that on thin women by saying they are mentally ill and have a disordered relationship to food and with their bodies. That’s a lot of assumption.

      I don’t believe Burda is the place for this kind of discussion. I don’t come here to look at sewing projects and then to be told that a thin body (very much like my younger self) looks like it- “came from a concentration camp,” is “sad,”or “sick.” There’s no way that that kind of name calling is truly concerned or respectful. Just like worrying that larger people must have type 2 diabetes and offering them unsolicited health advice is the opposite of respectful.

    Modelling is a job with specific demands, in particular, being a runway model means being a living clotheshanger so that the drape of the clothing is obvious. Fashion week is about clothes, not healthy body image or the human physique. Teach your daughters that it’s a specific job with specific demands that require a sacrifice of health and well-being (just like many other careers!), and don’t be a jerk about people doing their jobs.

    I got to admit they do look rather sad about modeling.

    Not just tunic tops, but tunic tops with collars: I love that detail.
