Milan Fashion Week Fall 2021: The 6 Best Digital Runway Shows
1/6 Laura Biagiotti
Laura Biagotti's fall-winter collection was set in one of Italy's most iconic sites, the Ara Pacis Museum in Rome. Entitled Age Of Women, this collection celebrates womanhood and femininity against the backdrop of an altar dedicated to Pax, the Roman goddess of Peace.
With fallen chandeliers and supersized speakers, Sportmax paid tribute to the best parties of all time. Inspired by Claudia Cahun, Grace Jones, Annie Lennox and Sinead O’Connor, their show took a tour of the opulent parties of mythical Greek Gods through to the '60s psychedelics, '70s activism and '90s techno scene.
Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada were inspired by the idea of change and transformation. In their presentation, entitled Possible Feelings II: Transmute, they enlisted the help of Rem Koolhaas and AMO to create a multi-textural void of faux fur and marble that enveloped the models as they walked to an original soundscape created by Richie Hawtin a.k.a. Plastikman.
Expect these textures and fabrics to pop up in Prada installations around the world before they are donated to Meta, a circular economy project based in Milan.

The '80s disco aesthetic was in full swing at Emporio Armani's fall-winter presentation. Following the theme of 'In The Mood For Pop', there were fluorescent lighting and disco dance floor panels on the runway that lit up in bright colours that brought the collection in all its funky and graphic glory to life.
