Milan Fashion Week Round-Up: From Gigi Hadid to a Tongue-in-Cheek Pop-Up Shop


While the month of fashion is not over yet and it is the turn of Paris to anticipate which pieces will invade lockers around the world in the coming months, Milan left its fashion week audiences with many things to look for. . From a series of upcoming Moncler collaborations that took place on the opening night of fashion week, to the acquisition of Gigi Hadid from the Italian fashion capital, these were some of the most memorable moments that took place in the city.

This season, 22-year-old shoe designer Niccolò Berretta took things to the background. The presentation of its autumn / winter 2018/2019 collection, open to the press, buyers and the public, not only meant a new range of ironic colorful designs, but also marked the opening of the “Giannico Gallery”. The latter is a pop-up store located on Via Borgonuovo in Milan 1. Although it was initially scheduled to operate until February 27, the space will keep its doors open until March 4.
