Stunning photos from Milan Fashion Week

  • Dare to bear

    There was a lot of wearable fare on offer on the Tod’s catwalk – including leather-belted separates in shades of rust, orange and dusty pink. Slightly more unusual headgear came in the shape of these ursine snoods. (Photo: Giuseppe Cacace/AFP/Getty Images)

  • Good as gold

  • Rock action

    There was a rock’n’roll edge to Versace’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, which imagined the label ‘on its world tour’. (Photo: Filippo Monteforte/AFP/Getty Images)

  • Bum deal

    T-shirts, body-revealing dresses and jackets, chains and metal mesh added a tough element, while the shortest of shorts left little to the imagination. (Photo: Filippo Monteforte/AFP/Getty Images)

  • Toe the line

    The John Richmond collection featured feminine silhouettes with contrasting textured patchwork and jewelled embellishments. (Photo: Filippo Monteforte/AFP/Getty Images)

  • In their element

    Models sport robes in the brightly-coloured trademark Missoni print. The collection was inspired by Japanese pop prints and the four elements – fire, earth, air and water. (Photo: Andreas Rentz/Getty Images)

  • Pony club

    Graphic, black and white patterns also featured on the Missoni runway, punctuated with sophisticated accessories and sleek, ponytail hairstyles. (Photo: Andreas Rentz/Getty Images)

  • Shady business

    Marni models sported black and white visors in a SS14 collection that delved into romantic territory with soft lines and pretty prints. (Photo: Olivier Morin/AFP/Getty Images)

  • Turkish delight

    The lavish Etro collection (detail pictured) was inspired by the designer’s grandmother’s patterned bookshelf, precious metals of the Ottoman Empire and exotic blooms of Indo-China. (Photo: Olivier Morin/AFP/Getty Images)

  • Grand finale

    Giorgio Armani’s was the last big show of Milan Fashion Week, creating a spectacle as three models marched down the catwalk wearing outsized, coloured mortar board-style headpieces. (Photo: Giuseppe Cacace/AFP/Getty Images)
