- 2020 Spring & Summer Collection interpreted by Moreschi
Milan is a cradle of trends and a global stage for many events; every six months, it transforms to host one of the most important fashion shows in the world: Milan Fashion Week.
It has been organized by the National Chamber for Italian Fashion since 1958, and, with its dense event calendar, it sets this hectic City in motion.
Milan is one of the “Big Four”, i.e. the four capitals of style and fashion. Things kick off in New York, followed by London, then Milan, and ends in Paris.
Leading fashion houses showcase their new collections, between fashion shows and uber-private events, treading in and spotting the most exclusive and sought-after locations in Milan.
Buyers, press agents, and fashion enthusiasts come from all over the world, to attend presentations, showroom visits and exclusive events.
Milan Fashion Week is a benchmark to promote fashion, Italian style and Made in Italy products. It helps us extrapolate designer’s guidelines for the news season, such as outfits, colours, bags, footwear and eyewear.
Designer’s themes and new season offers
What should we expect from the new 2020 Spring & Summer collections?
In the past months, leading Italian and international designers were modelled on the runway, defining the trends for the next season.
The main topic of men and women’s collections was sustainability, with growing focus on the environment.
Companies pay more attention to production processes, by reducing waste, making them less polluting, and opting for green developments.
The different fashion runways have shown a preference for innovative and recycled materials, with the lower environmental impact.
Runway trends help us choose our new spring wardrobe.
There’s a comeback of the 1970/1980s colonial style, with natural materials, such as raffia and denim, in all their variations. Colour enthusiasts will rejoice for the bright colour palette, from orange to colonial-style sand beige.
Let’s focus on accessories. Ultra-minimal sandals prevail, with laces and braids that trap the feet and tie around the ankle. And ballet flats – icons of comfort and practicality – are making a comeback. And, of course, this season too could not miss women’s camperos, for a true metro-cowgirl.
It was an interesting edition for the men’s collections, highlighting the new trends for men, between contemporary and sportswear, avant-garde and classic.
Loafer shoes with rubber sole and dynamic evergreen espadrilles were not lacking on the runway.
Apart from timeless desert boots and sporty ankle boots, sneakers are still a must in the men’s wardrobe.
2020 Spring & Summer Collection interpreted by Moreschi
When we talk about shoes and accessories, we cannot avoid mentioning Moreschi, which combines its know-how with an innovative style.
Moreschi’s 2020 Spring & Summer Collection is inspired by the cool and wild Mediterranean spirit. The #LeavingByTheSea collection enhances a relaxed and informal style, with an eye toward elegance, expressing the Effortless-chic spirit typical of Moreschi’s man.
Clean lines that reinterpret classic style in a contemporary and decontractè way, enhancing the quality of raw materials, and the concept of comfort and versatility.
A colour palette inspired by fascinating Mediterranean nuances, from light blue deep seas, to neutral sandy hues, and a hint of orange reminiscent of sunsets over the sea.
The collection includes some of the most iconic brand models, such as loafers, derby shoes and sneakers. Loafers become elegant designer shoes. We can see that in a special leather tone-on-tone braid; or in a fancier Superflex sole with extremely soft and light Nubuk leather; and lastly, in a classy and cool model with a special through-Brogue.
Balancing vintage spirit and classy look, Moreschi sneakers combine heritage and attention to detail. The elegant raffia tie & dye threading – an example of exquisite craftsmanship – creates an evergreen model.
Moreschi has always focused on sustainability in its footwear, also by adding new recycled rubber soles. These elements are taking Moreschi on a new eco-friendly direction for the next season.
