Milan Design Week returned to the fashion capital of Italy on April 18–23, 2023 to showcase the freshest designs in furniture and fashion that luxury has to offer this Spring. From new home collections to innovative clothing pieces, here are five striking highlights from Milan Design Week 2023.
Armani / Casa Outdoor Collection
The first-ever outdoor collection by Armani/Casa has arrived. Designed to look like traditional wicker furniture, the collection pieces are carved from teak and finished with the multidimensional jacquards as famously seen in Armani/Casa’s designs for a luxurious touch. Enhance your outdoor space with the complete collection, which features the “Terence” sofa, the “Timothy” sunlounger, the “Thomas” dining table, the “Turner” and “Terry” side tables and the “Thelma” folding director’s chair.
Fendi Casa x Louis Poulsen Collab
Fendi Casa and Louis Poulsen have combined warmth and elegance to deliver a lighting collection that will brighten up any room. The collaboration features the signature gold and yellow tones of Fendi Casa and the modern designs of Louis Poulsen to reimagine some of the brand’s most iconic lamps. The legendary “Artichoke” pendant lamp was redesigned in a yellow glass with Fendi’s logo and the “PH” floor light and “PH” table lamp have Fendi’s classic golden bronze finish and a yellow diffuser.
Jimmy Choo x Marco Piva Collab
Jimmy Choo and legendary designer Marco Piva collaborated on a beautiful collection of glass vases that explores the power of light through the Poliedro Murano glass model. Drawing from the diamonds included in Jimmy Choo’s designs, the four vases reflect and move light like the popular gemstone in yellow, amber or dark and light green.
Stone Island Color-Changing Garments
The research-based and high-end clothing company Stone Island unveiled a collection of pieces designed with innovative thermochromic technology as a part of their latest Prototype Research Series. The limited-time collection features 100 pieces that change color based on the temperature of their environment due to a “Liquid Crystal Heat Reactive” material. The nylon canvas is coated with a special iridescent ink that has a black base at room temperature, but develops with a yellow, green and then blue base as the temperature gets warmer.
Versace Zensational Sofa
Versace brought the highest standards of comfort to Milan Design Week 2023 with the “Zensational” sofa. Featuring a geometrical but soft look, the Versace couch boasts the brand’s signature swirl-like patterns and Medusa head detailing and comes in either a crocodile-embossed leather or Baroque-print jacquard.
