Designers opted for sumptuous flowing fabrics to craft sophisticated pieces like this one shouldered number from Salvatore Ferragamo. This was echoed on the runways of Dole & Gabbana and Aquilano.Rimondi as well.

Roberto Cavalli was one of several designers to balance soft, flowing pieces with strong, structured ones like this breathtaking jacket. Marni, and Aquilano.Rimondi were other designers who echoed this on their runway.

One trend thats been echoed through three cities, New York, London and now Milan? Sheer pieces! See through silks, nylons and even plastic pieces were seen throughout Milan Fashion Week.

We loved Dolce & Gabbana’s rich, retro florals, but sorbet colors ruled the runway this season. From this frosty blue to cool yellows, several designers from Salvatore Ferragamo to Marni crafted head turning pieces from this palette.

Plush, pretty prints like these were front and center at shows from from Ferragamo to Bally.

From DSquared to Missoni, rich, luxe layers were a staple this season. Whether carefree or consciously crafted, they came off as chic, simple and effortless.

Seventies vibes, like this hippie chic Missoni look were plentiful on the runways of Milan this season. So too were sixties sheaths, and A-line dresses, like we saw during New York Fashion Week.

Soft sorbet colors, seen on this breathtaking Dolce & Gabbana gown, were prominent on the runways this season. Luxe labels like Marni also followed suit crafting dresses, suits and accessories in these pretty hues.
