Milano Moda

Italian streetstyle has a boho revival

Shades of brown: Tick. Oversize shades: Tick. Tank top: Tick. Fringing: Tick. Fluted sleeves: Tick. Wide-leg, high-waist denim: Tick. There’s an unmistakable ‘Seventies Moderno’ vibe on the streets of Milan this season. Is this a nostalgic trend that reflects our desire to return to a simpler pre-digital lifestyle? Perhaps. Whatever the reason for going with the retro flow, we’re really digging Lavinia Biancalani in haute-hippie floral; Eleonora Carisi parading the paisley; Erika Boldrin rocking double denim; and Jenny Bernheim pulling on those over-the-knee socks. In clean contrast, Negin Mirsalehi goes for casual elegance in a perfectly man-size shirt-tunic, and Zina Charkoplia does all white in a chic nod to Jackie O.
