Style Points is a weekly column about how fashion intersects with the wider world.

Once, a collaboration was the ultimate in cred—high married to low, luxe mingled with quotidian. But after this just-concluded Milan Fashion Week, that kind of move looks so, well, 2020. Now, designers who once existed in their own never-intersecting, competing lanes are merging, with unexpected results. Perhaps the blueprint for this was the Gucci/Balenciaga linkup we saw at the former’s Aria collection in April, whose “hacked” pieces melded Alessandro Michele’s embellished maximalism with Demna Gvasalia’s Matrix-ready edge.

“Fendace,” AKA Fendi + Versace, was the portmanteau that became the talk of this Milan Fashion Week. But as the show notes for the collection were quick to declare upfront, “This is not a collaboration.” Instead, it was a meeting of the minds, as

Heavenly Coats, Quilted Trousers, and Gloves With Pockets: The New Rules of Fall Outerwear

City-To-Slope Sneakers

Though these Bally hike-sneakers look as fresh as anything, the brand’s mountaineering heritage runs deep: When Tenzing Norgay completed the first-ever ascent of Mount Everest in 1953, he was wearing Bally boots ($800).

A Quilt For Your Legs

In the age of year-round alfresco dining, there’s no greater pant to have in your arsenal than Bode’s finely tailored log cabin quilt trousers ($1,200).

Crazy Goggles

Rappers haven’t worn ski goggles off-slope in years, but if the trend returns, it’ll be thanks to Moncler’s bug-eyed peepers ($850).

A Bright Blouson

There’s nothing like a burst of Simon Porte Jacquemus’s sunny Provençal Pop to liven up even the dreariest winter wardrobe ($1,050).

Furry Mitts

Givenchy designer Matthew Williams is known for hyped-up hardware, but his soft accessories, like these faux fur mittens, are just as compelling ($1,190).

In 2017, Donatella Versace made fashion history when she reunited supermodels Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Bruni, Naomi Campbell and Helena Christensen for a Milan Fashion Week show honoring the late Gianni Versace on the 20th anniversary of his death. But one ’90s icon was noticeably absent: Linda Evangelista.

“We haven’t seen Linda around town at any fashion events, in a long time,” a top New York City model booker tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “Then when all the girls came back for that Versace show in 2017 — Cindy, Naomi, Helena, Claudia — everyone really wondered where she was.”

“There has been such a supermodel revival happening and it’s weird without her,” the industry insider continues. “Then I saw her on the street a couple of months ago, and she didn’t look like herself. Now we know why she hasn’t been around.”
