No one does maximalism quite like fashion’s Italian contingent. The likes of Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert, Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini always manage to take the most directional of trends and demonstrate how to make them work in real life. From frills and volume to feathers and prints, they never shy away from pieces with personality. Channel their fearlessness and have fun with your Milan Fashion Week looks; pay homage to ultra-luxe made-in-Italy labels by opting for clashing separates by Gucci and Prada, adding polish in the form of a leather coat and super-chic accessories. La dolce vita indeed.
