About Milan Fashion Week

Details presents the best of the best from the fall/winter collections.

Friday, January 01, 2010
The biannual rite that is Milan Fashion Week came to a close on Tuesday. It's a misnomer, really, because the week lasts only four days, but in those 96 hours more than 40 shows are staged, thousands of articles of clothing are shown, and enough cappuccinos are consumed to keep models going until September, when these collections actually hit racks. In fashion-speak, the fall 2010 season put a premium on heritage and brand DNA. Or, in simpler words, designers went back to doing what they do best. Dolce & Gabbana found solace and sexiness in Sicily. Versace returned its exiled rock-and-roll prince to the throne. Gucci favored a quieter kind of decadence. And Prada rediscovered how good it feels (and looks) to be a chic geek once again. For guys outside fashionland (yeah, that's you), the early messages for next fall include shearling outerwear, marled sweaters, beat-up boots, and chalk-stripe flannel. Here, highlights from Milan.

Dolce & Gabbana
Before the show, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana said they wanted to bring emotion back to fashion. Mission accomplished. As the Italian film Baarìa played in the background, sultry models in wool newsboy caps, brown cord pants, and gray flannel suits swaggered down the runway. It was The Godfather made real.
