Milan Fashion week

Milan Fashion weekss16

After New York and London, it's Milan who takes place in the fashion world, brigning all of us to beautiful Italy for the second time this year. Dolce & Gabbana knows how to please and stayed true to their pattern, once again. The clothes were very feminine and contained various floral prints, making the overall look like a beautiful summer garden. Lace was also quite popular and mixed in very well with the floral patterns. Lettering and patches were used on dresses, skirts and tops giving a crafty, touristic look to the ensembles. A few co-ords were thrown in here and there along the classic silouhaites giving the vintage show major pin-up vibes. The tailored suits were re-invented with either a cropped or oversized jacket. Donatella (Versace) never disapoint with her creations. This season, she opted for a safari vibe including various animal prints in vibrant tones (oranges, vibrant greens, purple, etc.) mixed with military inspired pieces. The modern summer suit - aka co-ords - were also present in diferent posibilities. Or course, we cannot forget the beautiful minis she designed and took a major part in her show. In this collection, all diferent styles are involved, going from sporty sweatshirts to sexy thigh high slits.

A strong nautical vibe was set on the Max Mara catwalk. Lots of stripes, stary patterns, sailor buttons bottoms, rope designs - and actual rope. Wide leg pants, oversized dresses, misbuttoned jackets/coats took a mojor part into Ian Griffiths's collection. Well known for its furry and leather creations, Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi opted for a 'no concept' collection. Puffed sleeves, lots of pleated and smocking effects on playsuits, dresses and shorts. Exagerated pockets were added for a contemporary and practical look on precenently formal dresses. Of course, it wouldn't be a Fendi show without some furry bits and leather accents! My favorite piece - like a lot of us - is definetly this coral playsuit we've seen everywhere since the collection has been revealed. Who knew tailored pantsuits could be worn so casual with a cropped tee on a runway? Believe me or not, Emporio Armani did it for its spring/summer collection which was a well divided between formal and casual. The overall tailoring of the show was crowded with many manly pieces going from boy shorts to oversized coats and flat footwear with a pastel-y palette to balance everything.
