We selected the best three shows of the just concluded Milan Fashion Week SS23, waiting for the London ones.
On Monday, September 26, Milan Fashion Week officially ended, without disappointing expectations.
With its 210 appointments, Italian fashion restarted with a new and renewed enthusiasm, stronger than previous years. Milan saw 5 days of feverish pace, where fashion insiders and fashion bloggers traversed the city far and wide, from early morning until late at night, always with a full glass of Franciacorta, the event’s official sponsor.
Here is a fresh review with the best fashion shows that will be remembered over the years.

The story of Alessandro Michele, Gucci‘s creative director since 2015, is truly singular: growing up with twin sisters, both of whom he considered his own mothers, he challenged, from an early age, the legacy of the social superstructure associated with the traditional family.
This experience forged him as an artist, developing a delicate sensitivity, a deep empathy that he also pours into his collections.
His background was an inspiration for the Milan fashion show: TWINSBURG, an ontological reflection on the theme of the relationship between the self and the other.
He did this by having on the runway 68 pairs of twins that he went in search of in the American town of Twinsburg, Ohio – hence the name of the collection – famous for being, precisely, “the town of twins.”
“I am the son of two mothers: mother Eralda and mother Giuliana. Two extraordinary women who made twinning the ultimate seal of their existence. The grace of their duplicated and expanded love has always produced in me a fascination for the double, for that which seems to reflect itself equal. It is in this specular multiplication that I catch every time an aura of beauty, so familiar and powerful. A tremor-filled miracle that defies the Impossible,”
