Here are the best looks from Milan’s fall 2024 fashion shows

From the sciure, those impeccably dressed Milanese women of a certain age, to influencers like Chiara Biasi and Chiara Ferragni, Milan earns its reputation as Italy’s fashion capital.

The city’s fall 2024 shows wrapped up Monday with a characteristic mix of elegant and alluring styles. As always, tailoring and made-in-Italy craftsmanship were on display, and influences ranged from menswear to the boudoir.

Virtually every runway had great coats, from Max Mara’s plush cocoons to Iceberg’s oversized trenches. They’ll come in handy over transparent dresses paired with granny panties, the way hip girls dress for parties today. Leathers and elaborate knits abounded, often asymmetrical and cinched with wide belts. On the color front, earthy shades of moss, umber and aubergine reflected the season, while “unexpected red” and “yellow without warning” added pops of color.

The game of designer musical chairs continues, and several creative directors premiered their first collections. Adrian Appiolaza pulled together a Moschino line in just six weeks after his predecessor Davide Renne tragically died a few days into his tenure. Walter Chiapponi was onboarded at Blumarine in November, while Matteo Tamburini took over at 罢辞诲’蝉. Meanwhile, London-based, Sweden-raised Ethiopian designer Feben showed for the first time in Milan, thanks to Dolce & Gabbana’s generous “Supported by” project. 

Here’s a look at the 36 Milan FW ‘fits that did the most.
