Milan Fashion Week: What we’re looking forward to

Fashion Director Ian Wright picks his ottimo shows in the Italian capital.

As the unenviable task of breaking down the tent at Somerset House begins, the fashion merry-go-round turns to Milan for its next hit of spring 13. At the risk of providing a list of obvious picks, here’s what we’re looking forward to seeing:

  • Prada (5pm GMT, Thursday), more specifically how Miuccia will follow up the jazzy carpets of autumn 12 and then conversely the restraint of resort and the menswear.
  • The Versace, Versus double-header (7pm GMT, Friday) where we’ll see what Donatella’s been working on and what her protégé Christopher Kane’s talents have produced hot on the heels of his well-received London show. From Frankenstein to Dracula in a week? Perhaps.
  • Bottega Veneta (8:30am GMT, Saturday) for no other reason than I’m obsessed with the label and how it weaves both leather and story-telling so skilfully.
  • Jil Sander (2pm GMT, Saturday) for the first look at what post-Raf Jil Sander womenswear looks like.

Here’s to a molto bene Milan Fashion Week.
