Gucci, Gucci, Gucci

The week will, of course, probably be all about Gucci. And this show may even be the most spectacular yet - it will be the first in the brand's new format, which sees them show just two catwalk shows per year, featuring men's and womenswear, as opposed to the usual four (two for women's, two for men's). So, expect a huge show with many, many looks - and we're betting the set will be very Insta-friendly indeed.

Other top shows to look out for are Versace, Prada and Moschino.

They'll be no Giamba

Sad face. Rome-based Giambattista Valli has decided to cancel his Giamba show - the sister-line to his eponymous mainline - owing to reported delays in production. His feminine, whimsy-with-an-edge pieces will be sorely missed, but fear not for he'll show his mainline at Paris Fashion Week as usual. Prepare for glorious gowns galore.

Keep your eye on the street

We've seen enough street style in our time to know that Milan is where the fun happens. For some reason the street style is bolder, brighter and a whole lot more 'fashion'. Maybe it's mid-fashion month madness. Maybe it's the Italian spirit. Who knows, just keeps your eyes on the street for some real-life outfit inspiration.

#OscarWatch

The Oscars take place next Sunday (26th), and it's not uncommon to see a star or two sporting a design fresh off the Milan catwalk - Gucci and Prada are the key contenders in this department.

All eyes will be on Bella (again)

Having already conquered New York and London Fashion Weeks, the younger Hadid sister, Bella Hadid, is off to Milan. But she won't just be the star attraction on the catwalks - she's having a party thrown in her honour.

As the new face of Italian jewellery brand Bulgari, she'll be the guest of honour at a party labelled #Bnight. Search the hashtag on Insta for all the insider pics.
