Milan Fashion Essentials: Shop Iconic Italian Designs

Say Ciao to the start of Milan Fashion Week, and let Europe's bold fashion capital be the inspiration for your next ensemble.

As Fashion Month moves on to Milan, Italy’s alluring style is on our minds. Here, designers only need one name—Marni! Fendi! Prada!—and fall looks are equally declarative. Leopard-pattern boots, richly grained leathers, and sumptuous suedes are beacons of la dolce vita.

When in Rome—or Florence, Venice, or Naples, for that matter—slip into the attention-grabbing glamour signature of our favorite Italian designers with these picks from our Fashion Office.



Minimal in design and optimal in craftsmanship, the Milanese brand is known for its understated, timeless appeal.
The company’s factory in San Mauro Pascoli has produced the brand’s shoes since 1966.
The Marni family roots began in the fur business. Take a trip back to the brand’s heritage with this bi-color fur stole.
The bright crystal blue hints to the reflection of Capri’s ocean.
Dolce & Gabbana is rich in inspiration from iconic Italian films. Sicilian design is heavily represented in this Fall '15 collection in particular.
Bottega Veneta's signature minaudiere features the Venetian brand’s distinct woven pattern, a technique often infused in the house’s leather goods since its inception in the '60s.
Fendi’s iconic baguette bag is reimagined with green crystals on a backdrop of grained leather.
