You can be guaranteed there’s never any shortage of personal style in Milan. The Italian fashion capital was swarming with novel approaches to dressing during fashion week, like going hands-free with a simple leather belt bag, or getting an extra-early start to spring with a sweet floral dress in icy pastels. Take a look back at the season’s best street style pics, shot by our man-on-the-street Jason Jean of Citizen Couture.
“I’m a shoemaker and I’m a shoe designer. I am like two people in one body”, was the opening comment from shoe legend Giuseppe Zanotti upon our arrival at his fall 2016 presentation.

Like her clothes, these scents will make a lasting and artistic statement.

Like a Russian doll placed inside one another.”
