Milan Fashion Week SS19: The Best Moments From Gen Z Yellow To Workwear Chic

It was a safe, but nonetheless, fun season.

With the house of Gucci shifting its Spring/Summer ’19 show to Paris, Milan was undoubtedly void of the brand’s typical fashion hijinks and theatrical showcase that bookmark the start of fashion week here. But as the saying goes, the show must go on.

The designers who call the city their home turf continued with an energetic and youthful outing as seen at brands like Prada, Versace and Fendi, while labels like Marni and Jil Sander continued to hold the fort as the city’s de facto intellectual houses.

On the whole, there were no game-changing moments. But if you’re looking for ways to update practical get-things-done clothes, then there are plenty of pointers to take note of. Here, our abridged report on the moments that stood out.

Bike shorts will be your new athleisure bottoms.
