60 fashion shows, over 80 presentations and many events. This Milan Fashion Week dedicated to the FW19 flew away like a breath of cold wind: fast and sharp. The opening was inevitably marked by the death of Karl Lagerfeld, a shadow that echoed above all by Fendi where the last collection designed by the great Kaiser Karl was staged. Despite this "the show must go on" and each brand has presented its creations and its aesthetic vision. Prada has continued to explore the intertwining of romance and fear already started with the menswear proposal; Versace has kept the gaze turned to the past, to the genius of Gianni and to the advertising campaigns taken by Avedon in the 90s; Gucci has explored the concept of duality and mask, among dozens of citations and inspirations, from ancient history to cinema; Marni has unveiled a very cultivated and unexpected erotic side; Bottega Veneta tried to collect Phoebe Philo's legacy with echoes reminiscent of Paco Rabanne's fashion. Many worlds, all different, all interesting that seem destined for a strong, independent woman, aware of her charm and her strength.
