Italy's menswear fashion week drew to a close on Monday, with both Pitti Uomo and the Milanese runways witnessing the retreat of streetwear and a return to a certain chic elegance through more classic menswear.
That’s what they call a great fashion show. The latest stylistic statement by Miuccia Prada presented Sunday evening in a chilly Milan; a co-ed show that referenced everything from the marginal masses to monster balls.
It was probably inevitable given the publicity she received in May for the Meghan Markle wedding dress, but Givenchy artistic director Clare Waight Keller was named womenswear designer of the year on Monday evening.
Miuccia Prada is the recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award for 2018 from the British Fashion Council, in partnership with Swarovski. Previous winners include Donatella Versace, Ralph Lauren and Karl Lagerfeld.
After 30 days of shows that began on the Bund in Shanghai with Tommy Hilfiger and ended in Paris in the Louvre with Louis Vuitton, we rate the 12 most beautiful and influential shows of the international season.
