Milan Fashion Week Fall 2019: The Top Trends, Themes & Fashion Moods

Elegance, brutalism, belt purses, cinched waists, relaxed power suits, grunge and masks that conceal and reveal: these are just some of the trends, themes and fashion moods that inspired the Milan Fashion Week Fall 2019 collections. Let’s take a closer look…

Plus don’t miss what our editors spotted at New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week for Fall 2019.

 The New Age of Elegance:

As a counterpoint to the IDGAF street-style sensibility, designers explored an understated and fluid expression of elegance that felt fresh and liberating.



Fashion Politics

The political sentiments and aesthetics being expressed on the Milan Fall 2019 runways ranged from a brutalism-inspired response to today’s pressing political and environmental concerns, to OTT commentary on consumption, to an exploration of the sexiness in the #metoo era.

Suit Up!

Call it the Pelosi-effect: designers offered women grownup suiting options that are timeless, inclusive and exquisitely crafted with a modern and relaxed silhouette. Other designers at Milan Fashion Week Fall 2019 added a touch of punk as well as oversized and exaggerated shapes to layer in a creative twist to biz-wear.

History Lessons

Many designers were in the mood to look to the past to redefine their future. The results, which were inspired by archival references, historical muses or experiences in their private lives, are sentimental, sexy and inventive.

This Season’s It Bag

Designers delivered on form and function with this season’s bags that were either cinched to a belt, worn as a necklace or a scarf. #brilliant #musthave

This Season’s Key Silhouette

At Milan Fashion Week Fall 2019 fluid layers and loose shapes were given a stylish and feminine touch with wide belts that hinted at and accentuated shapely curves.
