Milan Fashion Week with spring/summer 2023 collections: an overview of all the important news
Another fashion week is over and we’re going to review it for you. Italian fashion houses presented their collections for the spring/summer 2023 season as usual within a week. The visitors – regardless of whether they were physically or virtually – followed them with great excitement. But what is the fashion world talking about? What were the most exciting moments of this fashion week? We answer these questions in our brief summary of particularly notable events.
These are the most important news from Milan:
Debuts of new creative directors
In a total of three Italian fashion houses, the new creative directors presented their collections for the respective brands this season.
In February, Rhuigi Villaseñor was confirmed as Bally’s new creative leader. The Filipino designer from Los Angeles is internationally known in the fashion world with his label Rhude. His designs impress with a symbiosis of streetwear and luxury – his father was a tailor, so it seems to run in the family.
#2 Salvatore Ferragamo
Maximilian Davis is currently the most prominent newcomer in the fashion industry. After training in Wales Bonner’s workshops and then founding his label Maximilian, he was a finalist for this year’s LVMH Awards. However, the young designer turned down the candidacy after being offered a much better offer: the creative direction of Ferragamo. “I wanted to pay homage to Salvatore’s beginnings by bringing Hollywood culture,” the designer explained of his Ferragamo debut. “But the new Hollywood. Its lightness and sensuality; its sunset and sunrise.”
