Ermenegildo Zegna will kick the week off at 11 a.m. on Jan. 11 in piazza Duca D’Aosta, and the event will end four days later with Gucci, at the Gucci Hub in via Mecenate 77, with an event entitled ‘Motus Presents MDLSX with Silvia Calderoni’.
There will be 27 shows and 14 presentations, for a total of 41 events.
“Milan is at the heart of the fashion week landscape, both as a venue for creative expression and in business terms. With its 800 showrooms featuring 3,000 labels, it’s the industry’s largest trade fair,” said Carlo Capasa, the President of CNMI, the Italian national fashion chamber.
John Richmond will notably be making its return on the Milanese catwalks. The label, now owned by Neapolitan group Arav Fashion and designed by the eponymous British stylist, will stage a co-ed show in a venue as yet undisclosed. Mioran, the label by Chinese designer Miao Ran, is also back on the calendar.
The schedule is intense, and the main Italian names in menswear, from Versace to Prada, Emporio Armani, Fendi and Pal Zileri will all be there, alongside Marni, Billionaire, MSGM, N°21 and Belgian label Les Hommes.
A few emerging Italian labels stand out among the rookies: United Standard, M1992, Magliano and Numero 00 by Valerio Farina.
Also on the calendar, an interesting selection of new Asian names, like Bed J.W. Ford, founded in 2010 by Japanese designer Shinpei Yamagishi, and Spyder, a Korean label founded in 1978, designed by Christopher Bevans and Peter Brunsberg.
Daks, Dsquared2, Frankie Morello, Isabel Benenato, M1992, Marcelo Burlon County Of Milan, Miaoran, Neil Barrett, Sartorial Monk, Spyder and Sunnei will all be presenting co-ed shows.
Finally, among this year’s debuts, there are Italian labels Danilo Paura, founded in 2015 by the eponymous designer, and Barbanera, launched in 2011 by Alessandro Pagliacci with the brothers Sergio and Sebastiano Guardì. Both labels will show on Jan. 13.
