    HW24 takes stage at Milan Fashion Week- A blend of tradition and innovation

    Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2024: Tradition Meets Innovation in Fashion Evolution

    Milan, Italy: Milan Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 2024 showcased a mix of new voices and familiar roots, with a transition marked by the clash between tradition and the need for innovation. London Fashion Week had spotlighted young, creative talents, but Milan maintained its reputation for big brands, commercial collections, and, notably, the enduring presence of Prada.

    Glenn Martens brought a touch of innovation to the first day of Milan Fashion Week with Diesel’s democratic approach, featuring thousands of virtual guests. However, the subsequent events largely adhered to Milan’s established identity. The question arises whether sticking to the same formula aligns with the evolving luxury landscape and the desires of both the industry and consumers.

    Caught in a balancing act between history, nostalgia, and the future, designers like Adrian Appiolaza debuted at Moschino, taking over in January. Appiolaza carefully navigated the brand’s archives, infusing humor, political aspects, and familiar iconography. However, the debut left lingering questions about the novelty and the brand’s future direction.

    Debut collections are acknowledged as challenging endeavors, and Gucci’s creative director Sabato De Sarno experienced this firsthand. His second womenswear collection for Fall/Winter 2024 showcased a more assured hand, balancing “reality” with a sprinkle of sparkles, emphasizing tailoring, coats, and the iconic Gucci logo. The collection hinted at some resemblance to Prada, a recurring theme in recent fashion discussions.

    Prada, known for its historical focus, continued to explore fragments of history in collaboration with Raf Simons. The autumn/winter 2024 collection mirrored themes from the menswear presentation, incorporating “clichés of femininity” to re-evaluate traditional elements. Vanessa Friedman’s previous label of Miuccia Prada as the muse of the season resonated, highlighting the brand’s undeniable influence.

    Walter Chiapponi’s debut at Blumarine marked a departure from Y2K aesthetics, embracing romance over grand revelation. Meanwhile, Tod’s new creative director, Matteo Tamburini, continued the legacy with slight modifications, introducing a metal band and more casual cuts.

    Bottega Veneta, under Matthieu Blazy, maintained its winning formula, offering carefully crafted textures, details, and tailoring. Blazy’s approach to everyday wear suggested a shift in the perception of traditional clothing without sacrificing recognizability. The collection showcased oversized coats, varied materials, and tassel decorations, emphasizing the idea that reinventing the wheel every season might not be necessary.

    In a world filled with constant change, Blazy expressed the sentiment that there is something inherently human about the simple act of dressing. Milan Fashion Week’s juxtaposition of new and old voices reflects the ongoing conversation within the fashion industry about tradition, innovation, and the ever-evolving definition of style.
