Milan Fashion Week A/W 2018 editor’s picks

Models wear a range of multicoloured knitwear, from cardigans, T-shirt dresses and jumpers

Missoni: The brand’s warehouse runway set was lined with puddles of water and had a hazy red light, like the scene of a city street after a storm of the interior of a late night rave. Angela Missoni’s men’s and women’s A/W 2018 collection amalgamated different cultures and references, from Jamaican style to Caribbean colours, in a kaleidoscopic offering that featured knitted suits, ponchos, patchwork duffel coats, loose leather trousers and baggy cords. Models sported wide brimmed hats and colourful turbans, plus extra long scarves that sprayed water as they strode down the catwalk. Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans

Black, white and grey high sock boots with architectural heel

Giuseppe Zanotti: The Italian accessories specialist is a master of fabrication and embellishment, and for A/W 2018, it presented a plethora of must-have styles. These ranged from sock boots with geometric heels, denim court shoes with curving architectural heels and lightning bolt motif men’s slippers with snugly inbuilt socks.

Aspesi: model wears a red corduroy jacket with pleated navy skirt

Aspesi: Founded by Alberto Aspesi back in 1969, the Italian brand follows a ‘no logo’ theory, which translates through its timeless pieces crafted from the finest materials. For it’s A/W 2018 offering and its first ever MFW presentation, the collection perfectly expressed the clean elegance that defines the brand. Pieces featured concise military-inspired ideals: short, boxy jackets were made from corduroy, Irish wool and Harris Tweed, whilst skirts boasted a range of fits and textures, such as a navy plissé kilt made from Japanese cotton. The palette and textiles were inspired by the aristocratic fabrics used in London boarding schools; bringing together the feeling of almost academic assembles, Milanese style.
