En-route to Paris Fashion Week as I write…
Milano Fashion Week closed on a somewhat gloomy note this season. Many people heading to Paris early due to the Corona Virus scares. The Camera della Moda Italiana set up a special “China we are with you” campaign. Broadcasting 29 shows on Tencent.
In the aim of safeguarding public health Giorgio Armani had his closing catwalk show filmed in an empty theatre and then live streamed on the brand’s Instagram and Facebook accounts. I’m feeling even more grateful to have seen the Emporio Armani show on Friday.
In total I photographed 12 shows in Milan this season – saw many lovely trends walking down the runway. So interesting to note that with a few exceptions the colour palettes remained the same throughout many shows. Black, winter white, camel, petrol blue and emerald green rule for Fall 20/21. This post gives you highlights to 6 shows. Stay tuned for part 2 showcasing the other 6 shows soon. All photos taken by and property of FunkyForty GmbH.

Maryling is traditionally the first show I tend to shoot each season. Fall 2020 is all about black and red plus some interesting pattern mixes. Faux fur continues to be an item in many shows and a colourful teddy coat would appear to be a “must have” for next Fall/Winter.
“Gilberto Calzolari is a high-end prêt-à-porter brand made in Italy with a “green” heart that believes that elegance and beauty must go hand in hand with respect for our planet.”
I loved the colourful collection – pink and red combinations being my personal absolute favourite! A collection where a huge emphasis has been placed on sustainable production.
The rich blue seen above is a theme that was seen in several shows. Marco really made a play on the casual chic this season. There’s an interesting mix of fabrics throughout this collection. Note how the square toe boot is coming back on the scene big time!
For the MaxMara Fall 2020 collection creative director, Ian Griffiths chose a Moroccan theme. as he says; “it’s a romantic journey across the seascape that begins in Morocco and goes north to Russia.”
The whole collection was a sea of black, navy, winter white and camel tones. A touch of stripe and ruffle adding interest to certain pieces. The caped hoodie also being a favourite.
Genny is an Italian ready to wear brand founded in the 1990’s. The brand seems to be on the up with new stores opening each season. Interesting to note that the Fall 20/21 collection had almost the same colour palette as that of MaxMara, with the addition of this petrol blue as shown above.
The teddy coat is clearly a favourite for Fall 20/21. Asymmetric hemlines are also coming more and more to the forefront. Soft floaty fabrics then teamed with faux fur are some of Fall 20/21 staple looks.
Note the R-EA on the hat, representing Recycled Emporio Armani capsule collection. One that was first introduced with the mens collection earlier in January.
This season saw biker boots with short outfits ruling the stage, followed by floaty velvet suits. The colour palette being one which was really felt throughout Milan runways this season. Black, winter white, petrol blue and emerald green.
