This Spring/Summer 2023 season during Milan Fashion Week has been a remarkable turn of events, seeing the return of clean, straightforward and fundamental styling.

Setting the tone for the streets, designers like Matthieu Blazy, Rhuigi Villaseñor and Kim Jones, have given these traditional Italian luxury fashion houses a much needed youthful facelift to bring them into the present day trends. The streets reciprocated the notion bringing a fresh look at how one can be comfortable and stylish with a no-fuss aesthetic.
