Milan Fashion Week has come to a close, and only the most original and daring shows from the runway have walked their way straight into our heart. There's no one way of summing up what happened, but there was a feeling that fashion is expanding now more than ever. Regardless of what their collections ended up looking like—practical, sweepingly romantic, softly delicate, sharply severe, or patched together from remnants of the past—these designers are singing in the same choir. Click through to see V’s top looks from a week that produced outstanding collections.

PRADA

The Look: Glowing fluorescents and digital prints merged worlds as Miuccia Prada featured them on a bevy of tweed coats, parkas and neon dresses.

GUCCI 

The Look: This season, Alessandro Michele left no stone unturned at his FW18 collection--placing his runway show in an operating room that came equipped with severed heads, a baby dragon, flashing metallic separates and heavily embroidered coats.

VERSACE 

The Look: Donatella Versace brought back glamour this FW18, reigning in her collection with body-conscious dresses fashioned with plaid and tartan prints, and a string of visually impactful suits.

SALVATORE FERRAGAMO 

The Look: With Paul Andrew at the helm, the designer ushered in a new wave at Ferragamo's FW18 show, where crisp suede suits, velvet dresses and signature leather staples took center stage.

MARNI 

The Look: The key player this season at Marni was the explosive usage of colors that were faceted into patent leather coats, sequined cap-sleeve dresses and feline-printed coats.

FENDI 

The Look: Fendi went back to basics this season, embracing the brand's iconic logo and also reinterpreting FILA's logo in the process with patent leather trenches, boots and structured handbags.

MSGM

The Look: An homage to '90s Milan, Massimo Giorgetti paid tribute to his hometown, delivering slick leather coats in a spectrum of colors, black leather suits and thigh-high boots that revitalized MSGM in the best way possible.
