Top 5 Sartorial Moments From Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 23


Surprising celebrity appearances on the front row and the runway, plus celebrations of iconic milestones by legendary houses—Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023 had no dearth of illustrious moments. Commencing with Diesel’s denim-dipped nostalgia and Fendi’s slash of colour integrated into their signature neutrals, MFW began on a high note.

Gucci, Etro Prada and Versace continued to play to their strengths, while Bottega Veneta and Salvatore Ferragamo came in with a fresh new perspective—courtesy of its current creative directors. Though it has always been seen as interplay between the creative energy of London and the luxe enticement of Paris, the Italian designers and houses never fail to make a mark. In case you missed the major moments from this season, here’s our breakdown of the best fashion moments from Milan Fashion Week.

Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele is known for his madcap aesthetic and staying true to his stature, the Italian designer decided to send down 68 pairs of twins for the brand’s S/S23 showcase at Milan Fashion Week. The idea was to pay homage to his 2 mothers (twin sisters), “I am the son of two mothers, they shared a genetic solidarity but, above all, they shared an intimacy which was inaccessible to others,” the concept further explained through the show notes.

2. Paris Hilton Closing Versace


Nobody defines y2K and the early 2000s aesthetic better than the ultimate socialite and heiress Paris Hilton. The camaraderie between Versace and Paris goes long back—who can forget the iconic chainmail Versace dress she wore for her 21st birthday? Serving a similar look on the runway, Donatella dressed Paris in a pink, Swarovski-encrusted mini dress, styled with a pair of hot pink pumps, mini gloves and a veil perfectly cascading from her shiny blonde hair. Barbiecore done right!

3. Kate Moss Returns On The Runway For Bottega Veneta

For Matthieu Blazy’s second Bottega Veneta collection, Kate Moss walked the ramp in a checkered flannel shirt, white tank top, and oversized jeans. While the supermodel isn’t a regular on the runway anymore, she always manages to steal the show whenever she makes a rare appearance. Fun fact: the lumberjack shirt she wore is actually made of leather and required 12 layers of print for that authentic look.

4. Maximilian Davis’ Debut Collection For Salvatore Ferragamo


At all of 27, Maximilian Davis is the Creative Director of Salvatore Ferragamo. For his debut collection, Davis painted the town (set) red—perfect for his well-tailored, neutral-palette-bearing silhouettes. Besides the sharp cuts in shades of cream and coffee, the designer also revived and represented the leather accessories Salvatore Ferragamo is popularly known for.
