Oversized silhouettes, exaggerated shapes, long and lean tailoring, and psychedelic patterns—Anna Yang's autumn 2021 collection for Annakiki ticked all the fashion boxes. Her space age-y presentation during Milan Fashion Week continued the latest trends while setting forth new ones for the upcoming season. The tailored suits and voluminous outerwear were familiar, but the way she composed them with such exaggeration gave birth to new proportions that will likely dominate Milan's fashion scene and beyond. Among her most noteworthy looks was the foil-like silver metallic tuxedo with a midnight black lapel and strong shoulders that could even put the 80s to shame. This outfit will definitely have customers' eyes sparkling with desire!
Blumarine packed a youthful punch for autumn 2021 last Milan Fashion Week. Creative director and millennial designer Nicola Brognano joining a long list of labels that sought to revive the 90s through their latest collections. And this season's offering is no different. Cue the fur-trimmed coats, bare midriff, and low-rise bottoms. Blumarine has always catered to a more feminine and dainty target audience, but this season, she's one to dare go vintage and pack on the sex appeal. And while many of these skin-baring pieces look more fitted for summer, the fact that they'll look hot will probably be warm enough for this coming autumn.

It seems Kim Jones' foray into haute couture really did a number on him at Fendi. He introduced a mature and ladylike look for his autumn 2021 haute couture collection for the brand, and now, it looks as if he's continuing it for ready-to-wear. His parade of neutrals, precious white satins, classic silhouettes, and, of course, fur, showed off a new side of Jones, one that fits well with the legacy of Fendi. He even noted how this collection was a return to form for the fashion house, taking inspiration from both the Fendi family and the late great Karl Lagerfeld's work.

“Life! Life is romantic. A life that allows for laughs, for positive thinking, and definitely not for abandoning the feeling of the hand that makes things.” was Francesco Risso's answer to the state of the fashion industry as it delves deeper into the digital landscape because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, Milan Fashion Week didn't get to Italy's reopening back in the summer of 2021, so for his autumn 2021 collection for Marni, he had to make do with another digital presentation. With that said, he wasn't going to take it lying down. Putting forth a painstakingly handmade collection of puffer ponchos, oversized coats, brightly-hued suits, frilly dresses, matching knitwear, and more. It was 21st-century romanticism at its finest!
Speaking of knitwear, trust Missoni to always kick it with the cashmere and wool for autumn 2021. Angela Missoni, the brand's president, and creative director, even joked to Vogue Runway that she ought to do a collection of cardigans instead of a full-on ready-to-wear release. And you know what? No one will probably complain if she does! After all, Missoni has long sat on the throne of knitwear since it was founded back in 1953. And for 2021, they just keep on going! A cozy collection of long cardigans, lambskin jackets, midi sweater dresses, and floaty knitted caftans await the Missoni woman. She'll certainly spend this autumn all cozy and chic!

'I've had two years to grow claws, mother. Jungle Red!' claimed Norma Shearer's 'Mary Haines' in the 1939 fashion cult classic, 'The Women.' The film remains influential to designers even to this day and for autumn 2021, it's Jeremy Scott's turn to produce an inspired collection for Moschino. Presenting a video for Milan Fashion Week, in a style that referenced the movie's fashion show sequence, Scott dressed his supermodel muses in 1930s and 40s-style suits, pinstripes, pasture-printed frocks, and animal-patterned cocktail wear. For the finale, burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese closed the show in a red, sweetheart-necklined bustier gown with black hearts all over. And when she turned around, her fairly white bottom peeked through. Only Jeremy Scott can pull that off!

Alessandro Dell’Acqua, creative director for No. 21, told Vogue Runway that for his autumn 2021, he looked past the pandemic and into a new future. “Creatively, I’m already in post-pandemic mode,” he said. But what does post-pandemic fashion look like for No. 21? Twisted versions of Italian bourgeois codes of dressing. Think of a prim and proper double-breasted jacket paired with fringes that exposed lacey Italian lingerie and black tights. Little black dressed with white ruffs and cuffs but the hem was so high, it can pass for a top. And don't forget the translucent chiffon dresses that barely covered what's underneath. That's how Alessandro Dell’Acqua traditional Italian dressing for this coming autumn.

Since this was their first womenswear collection together, all eyes were on Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons during Milan Fashion Week. And boy, did they exceed expectations. Right from the first look, it was clear that Prada and Simons was a match made in heaven. The collection bore all of their signatures, from Prada's psychedelic prints and patterns to Simons' minimalist approach. One would think that both aesthetics would clash, which itself is another Prada signature. However, the actual results proved more harmonious, infusing the decades-old brand with new energy it hasn't seen before!
