Prada is known not only for its impeccable looks but also for its impressive set for shows. This year was no exception: the enfilades of rooms where the show took place were decorated with bright fluffy fur, the texture of which could be seen even through the screen. The floor with a light installation became the podium for the models.

Next cold season, the brand offer to wear coats and jackets with rolled-up sleeves revealing unusual prints on turtlenecks or jumpers, as well as bright gloves with an additional pocket.
After the show at Milan Fashion Week, Fendi creative director Kim Jones noted that he considered the previous fashion show an upbeat adventure filled with light, color, and optical illusions.

Comfortable robe coats, quilted fur outerwear made of eco-leather, jackets with zippers on the shoulders, and extravagant raincoats will probably be at the peak of popularity in 2021. Knitted sweaters with scarf collars, loose-fitting woolen overalls, trousers with vertical slits, and ski-style boots became iconic elements of the new Fendi collection. As for the accessories, Fendi has focused on functionality and comfort, which is confirmed by the practical models of the bags.
The new Iceberg collection is about a comfortable urban style, where knitwear is a key element. As the brand's creative director James Long noted, it reflects "the London eccentricity and angst of the 1990s Brit Pop, the English subculture, underground rap, and acid rock scenes."
The main colors of the collection are beige, black, and gray with red and yellow shades. As for prints, Iceberg has always been interested in the film industry and pop culture. This time, the designer transferred the images of all the beloved Snoopy and Woodstock from worldwide known Peanuts comics to hoodies and sweatshirts. The collection is also distinguished by an abundance of geometric stripes, zippers, laces, large pockets - all these are literal echoes of the raver culture.
Kean Etro called the fall-winter 2021 collection "a hymn to joy - the sun always shines after a storm." The presentation took place in a large space with huge windows. The main decoration was the sun, the play of which revealed fabrics, shades, and prints from different sides.

The new collection showcases the fusion of casual and evening style, relevant for a period of a prolonged pandemic, where versatility was one of the most important factors. At the same time, all outfits look fresh and vivid. The designer showed a new way of wearing knitted vests - directly on the naked body and bags - several pieces at once. The new Etro collection also includes Bermuda suits, velvet jackets, and trousers as well as patchwork-style belts and sneakers with neon laces.
Massimo Giorgetti presented his new collection "Vertigo" in a traditional format in a studio near Milan. Models walked the runway, resisting strong winds and snowstorms, which looked very impressive. "I believe we all tried a bit too hard to raise the bar of coolness and now I just want to deliver clothes that young men want to wear," the designer said.
The new looks by MSGM were inspired by mountaineering and the biography of the legendary athlete Walter Bonatti. The collection is full of various shades - lavender, blue, pink, lime, and milky. Animal prints and natural landscapes are also reminiscent of the surrounding beauty. Ripped jerseys, plaid Bermuda and shirts, multi-colored block parkas, tie-dye sweaters, jeans, brightly colored bucket hats, and knee-high socks deserve particular attention.
The Tod's men's fashion show was captured as a short film starring Italian actor Lorenzo Zurzolo. Walter Ciapponi revealed his vision of style through a visual story set in the Ronchi Villa in Vigevano. The plot of the film is simple: the hero is in the countryside, in the lap of nature, studying the script in a noble house far from megacities.

Lorenzo Zurzolo 's looks are gradually changing. We see him in a cozy soft suit with loose trousers, and in a classic coat with a fur collar in beige tones, however, the main catchy element of all the outfits are large shapeless bags.
