Milan Fashion Week has come to an end and Paris Fashion Week is on day two. I am behind in shows due all kinds of craziness, but I wanted to bring you the last little bit of Milan Fashion Week, so you four shows that really made an impact on me during the last few days. Photos from Style.com.
Moschino Cheap & Chic was very beautiful and colorful. I am really getting into shorts and bold prints for spring, but the midi-length skirt really caught my eye too. This is something I probably wouldn’t wear too much of, but I like the way it was presented in this collection. I think it changed my mind.
Missoni was inspired by different cultures, and I think that was obvious. The clothes looked like a mix of prints from all over the world Missoni style. The bright colors are perfect for spring, and the wide hats are perfect for shielding you from the summer sun.
Dsquared² was a perfect mix of feminine and masculine. The pants, tuxedos, and dresses really looked great without making the woman look too androgynous. I am noticing a lot of hats in the Milan shows this season. These fedoras match the oxfords that the models wore. Speaking of which, wasn’t it refreshing to see some shoes from the Dsquared boys that didn’t look like you would break a hip in them?
Jil Sander was by my favorite show of Milan Fashion Week Spring 2011. Apparently a lot of other people liked the show as well. The colors and stripes, mixed with the prints and silhouettes made for a perfect collection. I used to wear t-shirts with long skirts a few years ago. I think I am going to break that look back out again.
Soo many hot shoes. Can. Not. Breathe.

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.
The pictures did not move with my blog when I moved to different blog sites.
