Milan turns serious in a grown-up start to Fashion Week

Midway through Milan Fashion Week and already the collections are shaping up to be dramatically different to the lacklustre carousel seen in New York and the young designer-led trends of LFW.
Dark palettes led the way at Burberry Prorsum, with military style pieces decorated in gold disks and studs nodding towards a continuing warrior princess look. Prada followed a similar colourway but with splashes of white, lime and buttercup in a collection that would not look out of place in an enchanted forest, while neutral tones led the way at Bottega Veneta with a minimalist collection of tailored basics and simple silhouettes. For the younger market, D&G paid homage to 1970s bohemian styles fusing them with a school-inspired preppy look, while Pringle offered glammed up sportswear in treated fabrics and rainbow colours.
