Following a vibrant parade of textures and patterns from day 1, the second day of Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018 street style solidified previously observed trends — check prints, corduroy and furry coats — with a balanced approach that fused heritage wear with vibrant streetwear classics.
The main element at play was color. Traditional outerwear garments such as trench coats, shearling jackets and Glen plaids anchored ensembles with a wash of beiges and browns, while military-inspired puffers and bombers (e.g. the olive Craig Green piece) came in signature olive and black variations. These neutral color palettes were broken up with hits of bold primary colors via streetwear staples such as appliquéd hoodies, track pants, anoraks, and statement-making accessories such as the Supreme x Louis Vuitton bag and the orange striped Off-White™ scarf.
Graphic prints and logomania toned down significantly from previous seasons, appearing more as accents than focal points (for example the Prada detailing), whereas waist packs and clunky sneakers (e.g. Raf Simons‘ Ozweegos and Nike Air Monarch) continued to dominate the accessories and footwear category. One new trend to keep an eye out for is shearling-lined coats, especially ones that lean more traditional in style.
