Milan’s Spring/Summer 2014 Trends–With Milan Fashion Week complete, prominent spring/summer 2014 trends emerged throughout the shows. The first, and perhaps the strongest, was patterns and prints. There wasn’t a single show without some interpretation of the trend, and further, it has grown in versatility in the context of shapes, fabrics, and separates. Men should no longer fear the graphic print, as the spring/summer 2014 trends demonstrate a multitude of ways in which to don the patterns.
The second that caught our eye was structural, boxy, and oversized silhouettes. As a supporter of minimalist shapes, this design detail was warmly welcomed, integrating clean lines and geometric inspirations throughout the designers’ collections, ranging from Jil Sander to Raf Simons for a fresh perspective on spring/summer 2014 trends.
Finally, it is often said that white is the summer’s black, and with the heat rapidly approaching, designers translated their own language into the season’s “hottest” color – white. More importantly, the designers showed looks with head to toe white, hinting at a strong transition towards a new staple for suiting.
