From biker shorts to parachute pants, Milan embraced the sportier side of spring fashion. I was on hand (@johannahmasters) for all the action, soaking up trends that will soon be dominating the streets (if they aren’t already). Eye-catching ensembles were everywhere, from Prada’s embellished, tie-dye dresses to Etro’s patchwork jeans. Dolce & Gabbana celebrated its always-evolving DNA, while Moncler unveiled its second Genius collection. Dive into the Italian festa.

Shorts story

Biker shorts rolled onto nearly every runway in Milan. Blumarine layered evening dresses over neon pairs, while Salvatore Ferragamo kept a handle(bar) on a sleek and sophisticated workday look. Fendi saluted the bottoms’ athletic beginnings with matching sports-bra-and-shorts sets. Both GCDS and Roberto Cavalli, meanwhile, pedaled streetwear chic.

    Chutes away

    What’s cool-kid approved and lighter than air for spring? Perfectly restyled parachutes. Byblos floated functional, swishy pants; Giorgio Armani jumped on the trend with a pretty-in-pink skirt; and Sportmax nailed the landing with layered, multicolor jackets.

      To dye for

      Tie-dye has once again found its way into the jet-set closet. MSGM showed multicolor denim, serving an ’80s throwback feel. No. 21 and Prada both focused on statement dresses with bow accents and embellishments for a more contemporary take.

        Dream jeans

        Denim decked out models from head to toe in Milan, but these over-the-top jeans had us singing the blues. Beaded fringe, crystal motifs and feathers truly stole the show at Vivetta. Etro’s patchwork and Versace’s floral cargos evoke denim heydays of decades past — in the most wearable ways.

          In the trenches

          The trench is the coat of spring, ovviamente! But the classic jacket got a fresh spin in Milan. Max Mara’s rubberized jersey, polka-dot number provides the ultimate protection from downpours, while Agnona and Stella Jean’s options are so elegantly chic, they’ll carry you through — rain or shine.

            Dolce & Gabbana’s epic DNA-themed show was a fusion of the brand’s signature styles and muses, from past to present. The extravaganza featured more than 150 models, wearing everything from corset dresses to head-to-toe florals (quite literally: petals were affixed to strutters’ skin). Famous faces headlined the fête: icons like Isabella Rossellini and Helena Christensen as well as Insta strutters Emily Ratajkowski, Ashley Graham and Cameron Dallas. Whether old guard or new — it’s all in the famiglia.

            Moncler

            The second installment of the Moncler Genius project didn’t involve actual clothes. Instead, the five splashy designer collabs were digitally streamed in separate rooms. Our favorite? Craig Green’s “tent” ensembles, which bounced and twirled in vibrant colors. It’s a look you could live in.

            Marco de Vincenzo drew inspiration from his childhood in Sicily and visits from his “garishly” styled American aunt for his spring show — a mix of bold USA (cartoonish lamb prints and pastel denim) and traditional Italy (lace and giant crosses). Standouts were aquarium-like, rattan cases (above) filled with lemons, succulents and sparkly boots.
