Spring 2015 RTW : Milan Fashion Week : Part One

Milan Fashion Week houses so many big names, it's a delight to watch the runway shows. I very much liked Gucci's show. I'm not a 100% certain if skorts are involved but I love the sheer little dresses with embellishment and the sleek coats. I loved the whimsy aspect of Alberta Ferretti's show with the sheer layers and floral applique, it's not very unique but I'm still very much hung up on that style. Emporio Armani has blues in every possible colour but the separates were second to none. I always have this…Read more

Fall 2014 RTW : Gucci, Alberta Ferretti and Ports 1961

I thought I'd get started on collections from Milan Fashion Week starting with Gucci, Alberta Ferretti and Ports 1961!   Gucci My jaw dropped when I saw this, it's so basic on the outside but just the finesse is so stunning. I love the use of muted pastels, the leather which looks so luxe and structured. Every look is perfection. I really like the coats and that yellow leather dress. Alberta Ferretti The inspiration is nature and birds intertwined. There's that dirty gritty side of nature portrayed so artistically here. There is so…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Dsquared², Gucci and Alberta Ferretti

Spring 2014 RTW at Milan Fashion Week: Dsquared², Gucci and Alberta Ferretti We start with Milan's shows which really peeked my interest. They always seem more exciting and colourful than London! Dsquared² The retro silhouette with a twist is quite something though not too flattering at times! Looks a lot like a Barbie waist. But I do like the coral pieces and the embellished coat. Another interesting part of this collection are the statement jewelry. Varying from rings, earrings to necklaces, there are a lot of quirky pieces.   Gucci I have to…Read more

Resort 2013 : Gucci

Gucci has a lovely floral collection. It's supposedly inspired by the flower motif in a scarf made for Grace kelly. You definitely get a vintage 70's vibe from the collection. From the print and from the flared pants and cuts as well. The love the dress with the sheer long sleeves with studs on the side and a floral bodice. It looks very modern in an otherwise vintage-esque collection. I like the beautiful browns and burgundy's in the palette. The simple burgundy gown stands out for that very reason. With the gold necklace,…Read more
Fall 2012 RTW Gucci

Fall 2012 RTW Gucci

Gucci's collection this fall is dark but elegent. Velvets, sheer, bright florals masked by the dark dresses, flowy silhouttes; it all seems almost romantic. But some pieces also have an edge to it with military and oversize coats. The later half of the collection is just stunning. The bright velvert dresses and the ethereal black ones. They are so beautifully adorned with the floral shapes. The cuts are slighly provocative, it is Gucci afterall but it still maintains elegance and beauty. The billowy sleeves and capes add a touch of whimsy. The large…Read more
