I don’t know what it is about Fashion Week, but they always seem to start a little boring and then as the week’s progress, the shows and the collections become amazing. New York didn’t really do it for me, London, made me proud to be a Londoner . . . But now Milan Fashion Week is over . . . I’m thinking that I need to move to Italy and make that my second home.
Milan had a lot of wearable pieces, but these outfits were so much better than New York and had stand out pieces that made me consider learning Italy and learning how to say “I love this, can I have it for very heavy discount?”.
Also, unlike New York and some collections from London, I knew I couldn’t make a lot of these outfits, the detail in a lot of the outfits were beyond stunning and you can tell that a lot of work went in to all of the collections.
But I will be honest, I kinda prefer the Milan Men’s Fashion Week, not for the hot men, for the collections that they had for men . . . OK . . . it was all about the hot men. If you saw my previous post on Milan Men’s Fashion Week, you will remember that there wasn’t . . . much clothes to see, or maybe that was just my observation on it. In my eyes Milan can do no wrong. And if I was to compare (which I totally will) New York to Milan. I would say that Milan has shown New York how it is done, I don’t even remember New York hosting a Men’s Fashion Week, that was their first mistake. And it is great to have wearable pieces, but it should be something that will stand out in the future, not what is very now and what I can already get on the high street. I look to Fashion week to show me what I can look forward to, not what I can already buy now. A lot of the collections from Milan has something interesting and slightly different or new that I haven’t seen before or haven’t seen in a long time that I am glad to see back.
I won’t compare Milan to London, because I am a Londoner, and I did love the collections from London. But, Milan did have a lot more outfits that I loved, my Pinterest page is now mostly full with Milan Fashion Week collections, I couldn’t fit everything on here.
London was the perfect city to go to before Milan, and I can’t wait to see what Paris will bring then table.
The collection from Byblos was all about the prints and that’s what stood out for me in this collection and some of the others from Milan. Also love the fact that the Jumpsuit seems to be a theme in all the major Fashion Weeks. Haven’t got enough of those in my wardrobe.
From the Cristiano Burani collection, these two dresses where the best of a very similar bunch, but I do really like them, classic shaped dresses with bold and bright colours and prints. The perfect combination.
Usually, I prefer the Men’s Dolce & Gabbana collection to the Women collection. And for once it isn’t to do with the hot men in the Men from D&G, it’s actually the clothes. For me the Women’s collection is usually too . . . much of everything. Like, they have all these great ideas and put it all into every outfit that goes down the runway. This year, the collection is really beautiful. My top pick from this collection has to be the Gold Skirt, the Black outfit, oh and the shoes!
Ok, so there is kind of a theme from the outfits that I chose from the Fausto Puglisi collection. That’s because it is brilliant! I love it. I love the shape of it, the bright colours that have been chosen to go with it, how it looks with print. I just love it. And it is so simple, but brilliant, can easily be a classic piece that will never go out of style.
I’m not a fan of the purple used by Genny in this collection, but the dresses and other pieces in this collection, are very lovely. My favourite is the third outfit. Can’t beat a power suit like this one.
Mostly the colours grabbed my attention from this collection from Krizia, the first couple of dresses don’t really stand out other the colours used. But then there is the last outfit, the Laser Cut Jumpsuit . . . Genius! I really really need this in life. This beats all the other Jumpsuits.
This collection from Les Copains, is very close to one of my favourite collections from Milan. And that is mostly due to the use of . . . the Obi Belts. The one of the Jumpsuit is beautiful, also the white dresses are stunning.
And the best collection goes to . . . who else but Versace. Versace, can do no wrong in my eyes, and having seen her at the Vogue Festival (ok I wasn’t in the audience, but I saw the video) Versace is just in inspiration to me. And the collections never let me down . . . ok so the Jumpsuit is missing from this collection, I can totally forgive that for the accessory that I now need in my collection, the Body Chain. Love her, Love the Jeans with the Sheer Roses on the leg, love the collection.
