Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020: Day 2 Highlights
Max Mara show
Day two started with a pastel parade of supermodels like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Candice Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes and Kaia Gerber donning Max Mara’s classic long coats and culottes with oversized cargo pockets from the previous season.
The first solo show by Silvia Venturini Fendi since Karl Lagerfeld’s passing featured a buoyant collection of picnic prints, anoraks in sunny hues and just an overall retro-Californian cool vibe, still with a touch of Italian glamour of course. As Silvia told us exclusively, “The message of this collection is very simple: I wanted to make clothes women would want to wear on their next holiday.”
Mountaineering gear was made chic with denim sneakers, bungee rope details on totes and their signature translucent sneakers with a dust of shimmer.
Rene Caovilla presentation
Always held at their stunning headquarters with the best view of Milan, the label known for their bedazzled spiral strap stilettos introduced pool slides, flip flop heels and floral booties this season.
M Missoni presentation
Margherita Missoni’s first collection reflected her youthful energy in both the format—guests rode Missoni trams, where models of every age and size would hop on and off at every stop—and the collection of clashing, technicolour prints.

Always shown at an unexpected and very cool venue, street style stars turned designers Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini displayed glam-rock confections with plenty of feathers and sequins and a whiff of inspiration from the East.
Jeremy Scott literally brought works of art to life, dressing models in fabric frames, but he also drew heavily upon Spanish tropes for inspiration, from the matador hats to cubist prints.
