Milan Fashion Week was very short. It really isn’t as long as the other fashion weeks. I mean it really doesn’t even last a week. Anyway. I really was not as impressed with the clothes this season. I usually love Milan Fashion Week. Just like Paris, the clothes are usually very sophisticated. I was a little disappointed with what I saw. To me most of the fashion from Milan either looked bland or played out. I couldn’t even get into my favorites like Fendi and Albino. Je suis tres triste. Photos from Style.com.
I did like Gucci, Dsquared, and Prada. Gucci was very sexy and 70s Italian chic. I thought Anja and Freja did a good job of portraying the looks. The lace was hot. The models flowing hair was hot. The coats were gorgeous and I loved the pantsuits. The collection actually make me wants to wear pantsuits again.
Dsquared was so beautiful. I love the use of the colors black and red to make a very sophisticated, sexy collection. I know the PETA people are going to be after me, but I loved the fur coat that Chanel Iman wore. Gorgeous!
Prada had an old school Mad Men look to it. Everything was very 60s looking. The cast of Mad Men could even wear some of these clothes next season. I don’t know if they are but it would be to their advantage. I also have to applaud Miuccia for calling some curvy Victoria’s Secret models in at that last minute because the other models were too small. If you are looking for the best coats and sweaters next fall, go to your local Prada store.
I liked Dsquared and a few other shows.
I'm diggin Gucci the most, how I wish for that white dress! 🙂
I can't wait until I have time to leisurely peruse the photos from the Prada show on style.com!
love the Gucci collection. Prada too, even though the model thing seems a little ridiculous as they always had the skinniest ones and now this sudden change of mind? weird… but the 'curvy' girls pulled it off!
