MFW Spring 2016 Street Fashion Inspiration

Fashion

We’ve already covered the New York Fashion Week spring 2016 street style and theLondon Fashion Week coolest street fashion moments. Now we are on to the street looks of the Milan Fashion Week, where the trendiest ladies of all rule off the runway. Whereas the other fashion week streets were full of more relaxed, comfortable and a bit more casual styles, in Milan, the idea was to look more on the professional side it appears. Half a month of fashion has already gone by and we cannot help but stay wowed by it all, all those incredible pieces floating onto the runway. Sometimes they simply did not do their designers or House brands justice, but mostly, we have been faced with a barrage of magnificent talent that is hard to forget anytime soon. It will leave us satisfied until the next batch of Fashion Weeks, this time pointing us in the fall and winter 2016 direction. Nevertheless, we are here now to discuss the coolest Milan Fashion Week spring 2016 street style moments that can serve as a big dose of inspiration for building up day-to-day and special occasion outfits.

Milan Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

While the first day of the Fashion Week runway shows was rainy, we were still very much bombarded with displays of incredible fashion sense. The following day that changed a bit as the more daring, or confused, ladies appeared in bare shoulders, side by side with those in coats, in sandals compared to those in patent leather boots. This confusion in style would continue throughout the week, though it appears Milan has warmed up as more and more street styles are reflecting the sleeveless or lightweight tops and dresses instead of being swaddled in heavier coats.

On the streets, we have seen some incredible pieces, from gorgeous midi length ruffle hemmed black dresses with little girls matching in style (because apparently this is the perfect mother-daughter event) to laser cut floral designed midis that put the spring fashions to shame. We see patterns like houndstooth and leopard stripes and florals, and more than one person was spotted in a Dolce & Gabbana outfit from the FW 2015 collection shown off months back. Cropped tops and fitted denim make for a common theme on the more casual of days, while it is expected that we are going to have a whole ‘70s theme going on. Leather appears on the streets alongside softer looking materials, with suede and cashmere looking awesome beside the corded knits and furry ensembles. A few plunging necklines, a few polka dotted skirts, a touch of alligator print and a whole lot of transparency later, we know we’ve seen some of the better street styles for the SS 2016 Fashion Weeks yet.

In terms of accessories, we really have to outline those handbags, as we see fur accents on boxy, cherub picture frame versions with small handles to those with big kissing lips adorning the face of it. We see blue fur stoles over the shoulders and rounded bowler or felted floppy hats. And have you noticed the watches? It appears that for the wrist jewelry, we are looking at larger and rounder faced watches with metal bands, a very classic style that fits right in with the rest of the looks.

Moschino Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Milan Fashion Week

Fashion

With the way Moschino’s spring/summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection (designed by Jeremy Scott) started, there was no way to prepare yourself for the larger than life garments that the brand sent down the runway, unless you were there yourself. The first part of the collection gave a free-spirited vibe, but in a dialed down way. It made me question if the brand had decided to tone down their looks for the new season. There was a distinct “construction zone” theme paired with retro silhouettes, but it wasn’t too glaring. The first looks were designed on a reflective yellow fabric, and others that seemed to mimic the pattern of traffic cones.

Moschino Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

The first sense of Moschino’s classic novelty was with the use of actual traffic cones. Being featured first as a handbag and later as a hat, these pieces really pulled the looks together in a way more suited to the design house.

The final piece that came before the “novelty explosion” was a classic, knee-length beige trench coat with an A-line bottom. This was my personal favorite commercial piece, because I can see any number of women dying to own that coat, with myself included. It did, however, seem out of place in the collection. The pieces before it were vibrant in color and (literally) reflected the construction theme, and the pieces after it were a combined eruption of colors and literal elements of roadwork, used in an unconventional way. It seemed to act as a calm before the couture-storm, and it really amplified the element of surprise for the audience.

Even despite the extravagant couture, Moschino really stepped up and made some simple feminine, retro-inspired pieces, like a boat-necked shift dress made from a fabric much like the reflective orange fencing put up at construction sites. The look was finished off with a simple black bow tied at the model’s waist. I’d like to dub this ensemble true construction chic, as it celebrated both the abstract theme of the show and a beautiful shape that could actually be pulled off worn on a daily basis.

Jeremy Scott definitely put on a unique, off the wall show, and I for one will admit that it’s refreshing to see a show that’s all about fun, while showing an excellent quality of work and even producing some beautiful and wearable garments for the everyday woman. But above everything else, I’ve never seen caution tape look so good.

The designer didn’t just stop at road construction, however. In the second half of the Moschino spring 2016 show, he switched gears and brought in comic books and the Powerpuff Girls. Suddenly you’re bombarded by a slew of bright colors and animation. But he also added cleaning products into the mix, directly afterward, and suddenly there were bubbles everywhere. They first appeared with a “squeaky-clean” light blue dress with a halter neck and large bow on the hip, and they stayed for the remainder of the show. The runway show ended with a finale of duster and mop inspired dresses to accompany the bubbles – just like at a car wash – and they were absolutely incredible (which is something I never thought I would hear myself say).

Moschino definitely lived up to their reputation this season, and presented a truly incredible, eccentric collection pulled from the most unconventional places in the world.

Blumarine Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – Milan Fashion Week

Fashion

With an eclectic line-up that seems to be inspired by Persephone, one of Zeus’ many daughters and the lovely wife Hades, the Blumarine spring/summer 2016 collection takes its duty seriously. Like Persephone herself, the Blumarine woman is ready to spend six cold months in the underworld before re-emerging full of life in our beloved sunny weather. Blumarine back to spring leitmotiv runs through every single piece of the collection and enjoys playing with different fabrics, sizes and styles. Somehow, Anna Molinari managed to interpret this theme in more than 30 significantly different ways, making her collection one of the most impressive and multifaceted lines seen so far. In fact, even though some of her creations may not satisfy everyone’s expectations or personal tastes, her ability as a fashion designer is undeniable here.

Blumarine Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Blumarine’s celebration of spring and summer begins with a great number of maxi dresses, harmoniously adorned with floral embroidery patterns. Embellishing the hems of each skirt, these flowers seem to belong more to Mother Nature rather than to the dresses per se, thanks to a romantic optical illusion that gives all the outfits an ethereal and sophisticated allure. This ethereal allure finds a good ally with the great amount of sheer fabrics Anna Molinari has skillfully applied to almost every piece, often using them as a modern variation of the vertical striped pattern.

However, see-through fabrics and floral embroideries are the only things all the pieces have in common. In fact, Molinari’s talent to sift through her back to spring leitmotiv goes beyond the mere usage of different fabrics, embracing different fashion styles and cultures. While the first part of the collection has in hippie influences, the second part travels forwards in time to the early Eighties, bringing puff sleeve blouses and structured shoulder pad dresses, at the same time, wide-leg pants, along with oversized shirts and trench coats that give a sophisticated unisex appeal to the line-up.

Shortly after, we find ourselves thrown into the mid-Eighties and early Nineties thanks to some short wrap-around skirts, sleek fabrics and black crop tops, which give the collection a mystic sensual allure that may be linked to Persephone’s love for Hades. The third and last part of the show, which may be seen as soulfully futuristic, gives us some good examples of what fashion might be in a not so distant future: practical, ecological and architecturally inspired by nature.

Blumarine Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Last but not least, it is also extremely interesting to see how Molinari has been inspired by the Asian world, with its Zen philosophy and martial art tradition. In fact, while some outfits seem to celebrate Japanese cherry blossom gardens, others look like futuristic versions of kimonos. Whether you see the Blumarine spring 2016 collection as too chaotic or not, Anna Molinari’s ability to dress up Persephone is tangible, and will surely inspire future fashion designers.

LFW Spring 2016 Street Style Spotlights

Fashion

As delicious as the showstopper gowns and incredibly creative designs are on theLondon Fashion Week runway shows, it is the street style that often needs the spotlight as well. Four days into the week and we can see the beauty of each and every person radiating through, while some of the street fashions by the It girls coming to check out the latest trends was possibly even more fabulous than the pieces they had come to appraise for themselves! Some of the best London Fashion Week spring 2016 street style looks noticed throughout the different days include:

London Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

• A brown wraparound coat worn over loose fitting comfort jeans that are cuffed up to the ankles, white sneakers clad around the feet and a lovely black leather clutch to finish off the look with nary a matching color. Wavy highlighted hair had an ombre effect that only lent to the autumn look of the ensemble.

London Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

• For those with a love for showing off their toned legs, we truly found the black and white combinations fascinating, pairing a white cotton blend shirt with a high waist pleated black leather skirt and finishing off with white heeled blue-black velvet ankle boots with pointed toes. That was incredibly beautiful.

London Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

• Open midriffs are a common theme, mixed with pants, skirts, embroidered designs and asymmetrical hems. Add classy, yet brightly colored shoes to the mix and some cool sunglasses and you have some very interesting looks despite the slight chill in the air.

London Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

• A long green velvet coat in a forest hue looks incredible with a turtleneck white blouse and a mid-thigh length high waist skirt with buttons up the center to give it a very 1970’s look. Those fur tuft espadrilles with the leopard prints are intriguing enough but we have to wonder how well they match with the rest of the sophisticatedly youthful look.

London Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

• While many opt for the sneakers, the espadrilles or the sandals, we love the thigh high suede boots in the burgundy coloring. The lacy multilayered dress is attracting attention to itself. We might rather prefer a different form for the top of the dress, but the see through style of it is certainly in tune with this year’s trends. Add a lovely black blazer on top and a pretty grey clutch to the mix and it becomes a very 1970s meet 2015 ensemble.

London Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

• One particular look that most definitely took us for a ride was the chiffon dress with the high neck and skirt up the side, the gentle beige coloring giving the daisies depicted on the top especially a very subtle background. Add a Mongolian shearling coat on top and masculine black leather boots to the mix, while braiding the hair into double pigtails and you have an autumn look that is positively fabulous!

London Fashion Week Spring 2016 Street Style

Throughout the Fashion Week, we’ve seen knit tops, form-fitting turtlenecks, dog prints on color block shoes, extra-long sleeves, furry sandals, masculine slouched feminine suits with shorts instead of trousers, plunging necklines and voluminous skirts, bowler hats and lots of frills. We’ve seen transparency abound and a whole lot of fur in general. While we love the collections shown off on the runways, they can’t hold a candle to some of these street styles we’ve spotted throughout the past couple of days. London Fashion Week has been a hit!
