The opening of Milan Fashion Week marked a return to a semblance of normalcy for Italy’s most glamorous city, in a country that has been ravaged by COVID-19. Fashion editors and influencers descended upon the city’s shows, all while practising safe social distancing and sporting fashion-forward face masks.

Like London and New York before it, designers presented a blend of physical and digital shows for the Spring/Summer 2021 season in a scaled-back format. Notably absent from this year’s calendar was Gucci, who chose not to show amid the COVID-19 pandemic, citing changing views on the traditional fashion calendar.

Fendi started the week off a high note with Silvia Venturini Fendi presenting a beautiful collection (which is also her last for the brand as Kim Jones has been announced as its new creative director). Raf Simons debuted his first collection for Prada via a pre-recorded runway sequence, while Fendi, Max Mara and Versace opted for in-person runway shows (the latter of which was made up exclusively of Versace employees).

Milan Fashion Week SS21 Street Style

Milan is heralded for its polished street style and this season was no exception. Show attendees embraced looks that like orange and yellow in variations of trench coats, pants, skirts, and coordinates.

Street style photographer Nick Leuze has captured the looks that took Milan Fashion Week SS21 street style to the next level.
