As I bid arrivederci to Milan Fashion Week, I was struck deeply by how impactful the Spring/Summer 2016 collections have been. #MFW is not typically known for leading the fashion pack, but it has always been a reliable source of luxurious, glamorous clothes for the ladies-who-lunch crowd. That notion was completely turned on its head this season due to a fresh infusion of new outlooks at storied brands like Gucci, Tod’s, and Dolce & Gabbana. Add to that the crop of new Creative Directors at Roberto Cavalli, Emilio Pucci, and Iceberg, and it becomes abundantly clear that an Italian fashion renaissance is underway.

As a veteran runway reporter, I’ve come to know every brand’s aesthetic, so I usually enter each review with a standard set of expectations. This time around, my expectations were defied in unexpected and absolutely thrilling ways. A new generation of designers is paving the way for bold, daring fashion that speaks to the millennial generation and its image obsession. I reveled in Milan’s cutting-edge design and found delightful looks in every single collection I reviewed, which made whittling the list down to my top five favorites rather difficult.
