Ciao, Milano! Halfway through Fashion Month and the traveling flock of models, editors, and buyers have touched down in Italy, inspiring New York to look into the best of Italian fashion we have here. This is the city of ridiculously bright prints (hello, Etro!), new sensations (Gucci, of course) and experimentation aplenty. To relish all things Italiano, we’ve picked out some of our fave spring offerings from a wide-ranging crop of designers. Luckily, all are available to shop now in the isola of Manhattan. Read on for our picks of the best of Italian designers in New York City.

Italian Designers in NYC: Gucci

Gucci

1.) Alessandro Michele of Gucci is undeniably the name on everyone’s lips. His kangaroo fur loafers continue to have a growing waiting list, and his nerd-chic aesthetic can be felt everywhere, from fashion magazines to the streets. The shoes to scoop up this season are his pearl-studded mid-heel loafers replete with logo hardware and signature Gucci stripe. 840 Madison Ave., gucci.com

Italian Designers in NYC: Anthony Vaccarello

Anthony Vaccarello

2.) New-ish to the scene with a devoted cult following, Anthony Vaccarello brings refinement to bodycon silhouettes. His halter-neck LBD is a complete look on its own with glittery, polished enamel buttons that pack a big style punch. Jeffrey New York, 449 W. 14th St., jeffreynewyork.com

Italian Designers in NYC: Missoni

Missoni

3.) Summer will be here...eventually. Make the countdown a bit sweeter with Missoni’s crochet-knit one-piece. This swimsuit is perfect for upcoming holidays on Capri, but luckily is just as apropos for sunbathing at the hotel pool or even paired with cutoff denim shorts for a walk on the beach. 1009 Madison Ave., missoni.com

Italian Designers in NYC: Dolce & Gabbana

Dolce & Gabbana  

4.) Take it from us, daisies are the flower to rock for spring. To perfectly embrace the trend, reach for this silk brocade clutch by Dolce & Gabbana. It is exquisitely embellished with Swarovski crystals and glass beads. 717 Fifth Ave., dolcegabbana.com

Italian Designers in NYC: Etro

Etro

5.) Since the 1960s, Etro has been beloved by laid-back bohemians and city girls alike for its vibrant prints. There is simply no better option to take you from the pool to cocktail hour than with this silk maxi dress. It features a flattering, satin ribbon at the waist. 89 Greene St., etro.com

Italian Designers in NYC: Prada

Prada

6.) Somehow, season after season, Miuccia Prada designs exactly what we never knew we were dreaming of. Case in point, Prada’s Baroque-inspired sunglasses that have a gorgeous walnut wood frame and curlicues along the sides. 724 Fifth Ave., prada.com

Italian Designers in NYC: Fendi 

Fendi

7.) Lucky for us, the spectacular bird of paradise flower inspired Karl Lagerfeld’s spring collection for Fendi. We’re currently lusting after this divine print, rendered in an easy-to-wear midi length of sumptuous silk cady material. 598 Madison Ave., fendi.com

Italian Designers in NYC: Moschino

Moschino

8.) Consider Jeremy Scott the most Warholesque designer of Milan Fashion Week. His skill at appropriating household objects into fashion pieces is genius. Who knew a Moschino leather backpack emblazoned with a cleaning supply logo would be a street style must-have? 73 Wooster St., moschino.com

Italian Designers in NYC: Salvatore Ferragamo

Salvatore Ferragamo

9.) Tie on one of Salvatore Ferragamo’s silk scarves and you'll instantly feel like you’re starring in your own version of Roman Holiday. This spectacular peacock print looks lovely in a bow around the neck or as a colorful headband. 655 Fifth Ave., ferragamo.com

 Italian Designers in NYC: Marni

Marni

10.) Nothing comes simple with Marni and that’s why we love it. Every inch of creative director Consuelo Castiglioni’s designs are imbued with a playfulness and charm. Her embellished sandals can make the simplest outfit shine, and are the ideal shoes to bring on all your spring break and summertime travels. 161 Mercer St., marni.com
