As the world opened up abroad this season, the buzzword “hot vaxxed summer” was on everyone’s lips. If fashion month this September has promised anything for the Spring/Summer 2022, it’s looking more like a “hot maxxed summer” come June next year. From New York to London and now in Milan, designers have promised (and delivered) on maximalist design cues. Think Collina Strada’s “chaotic good” energy from NYC and Rejina Pyo’s poolside pieces via the UK.
The industry’s gaggle of editors, influencer and stylists have responded and as fashion week travels to the Italian city of Milan, street style has taken cue. Outside some of the most anticipated runways including Kim Jones’ Fendi collection, Max Mara and Roberto Cavalli, attendees wore an amalgamation clean and crisp tailoring – a specialty of the Italian people – and era-inspired pieces.
There was a nod to seventies-esque color and head-to-toe leather. Y2K’s polarizing trends including micro prints and neon color-blocking was also out in force.
Before the runways fly further north to Paris on September 28, below we look at some of the best street style from Milan Fashion Week SS22 below.
