September tends to feel like the longest month. Ever. No, not in a bad way. More so because we can't believe that in only 20 some-odd days, we've seen more new designs, runway struts, and bobbing front-row heads (either in person or via live stream) than we can possibly count. But what really keeps us trucking along are the inspired looks that practically stop us in our Instagramming/tweeting tracks. And Milan, the third city of Fashion Month, was the ultimate 11 o'clock number we didn't even know we needed.
As Milan is home to some of the most iconic fashion houses that practically everyone can name — Gucci, Prada, Missoni — the city did not disappoint when it came to jaw-dropping visions. However, first-time Milan presenters, Ports 1961, and the highly anticipated return of Jil Sander, were also among the new and exciting additions.
Starting to crave a catwalk catnap? Don't give in now. We've rounded up the 10 brilliant, breathtaking (literally) looks from Milan Fashion Week that have really made our hearts race.
