Fall 2014 RTW : Dsquared², Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana

Fall 2014 RTW : Dsquared², Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana

It's a fitting end to Milan Fashion Week with Dsquared², Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana with their gorgeous collections.   Dsquared² It's theatrical and fantastic! The opening look of a patient being accompanied by nurses is extravagant. The hospital shackle like bracelets on the knees and hands while being very trendy, are obvious. I love the green gown and the cape with feathers, like an evil doctor of sorts. It's fun and beautiful at the same time. Can't ask for more, can you?   Giorgio Armani Similar to the Emporio Armani collection, this…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Salvatore Ferragamo, Missoni and Trussardi

Fall 2014 RTW : Salvatore Ferragamo, Missoni and Trussardi

Love the Salvatore Ferragamo collection; also reviewed are Missoni and Trussardi from Milan Fashion Week.   Missoni The zig zag can make this collection stand out from a crowd and this time it's a colourful play of colours and oversize outerwear. I'm not too enthralled by the collection but this collection scores high on the wearability scale, I do like the darker muted warm colours.     Salvatore Ferragamo It's a very sleek and modern collection. I like the leather piping on the flowing cuts, it adds more structure but still keeps things…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Emilio Pucci, Luisa Beccaria and Sportmax

Fall 2014 RTW : Emilio Pucci, Luisa Beccaria and Sportmax

Hope you're all having a nice weekend! Fall collections from Emilio Pucci, Luisa Beccaria and Sportmax! All from Milan Fashion Week.     Emilio Pucci It's hard to pinpoint a look or trend here, there's such so much to look at. The leather leathers, the print ones, the knit jumpers, ponchos and leather boots! Where so I start? It was mix of north and south with a Scandinavian influence over the knits and the Mediterranean for the lighter ones. I'm just floored by that flowing yellow gown and khaki one donned by Joan…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Bottega Veneta, Roberto Cavalli and Jil Sander

Fall 2014 RTW : Bottega Veneta, Roberto Cavalli and Jil Sander

Incredible collections from Roberto Cavalli, Jil Sander and Bottega Veneta, all from Milan Fashion Week. Roberto Cavalli's in particular is amazing.     Bottega Veneta It's very ladylike, this collection. With just dresses and all in a similar silhouette, it's been given more depth with the use of patterns in the form of lines, curves and puzzle like arrangements. It's very wearable, even for workwear. There's a black and white dress with looks so light, it's clinched at the waist and looks incredible. The light grey and beige dress with the leather panels.…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Etro, Versace and Marni

Fall 2014 RTW : Etro, Versace and Marni

Here are  three execllent fall collections from Milan Fashion Week; Etro, Versace and Marni! Etro is really iconic!   Etro I seem to perfer collections drawn on culture (when done appropriatelt ofcourse). The tops, long flowing dresses with a myriad of prints and embroidery. It's a muted and warm collection, makes to think of a sunny place.   Versace With a bias cut mastered, this collection keeps the Versace moto well in mind. The dresses are fitted and very flirty. I love how they move. I'm more partial to the Raspberry red over…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Blumarine, Emporio Armani and Antonio Marras

Fall 2014 RTW : Blumarine, Emporio Armani and Antonio Marras

More fall madness from Milan Fashion Week, here are collections from Blumarine, Emporio Armani and Antonio Marras!   Blumarine I love the kimono-esque clothes, that gold and black fabric looks so rich. The cape witht he gown is also very impressive. Overall, there are many likeable pieces like the layered mini skirts and lace dresses with the slight ruffle at the hem.   Emporio Armani It starts of a bit masculine and vintage, the tailoring is perfection though. It slowly branches out into more feminine silhouettes with softer shades. I love the sparkling…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Max Mara, Fendi and Just Cavalli

Fall 2014 RTW : Max Mara, Fendi and Just Cavalli

Love these fall collections from Milan Fashion Week, Max Mara in particular. Also reviewing, Fendi and Just Cavalli.   Max Mara It's THE collection for "proper" winterwear. There's wearable oversize and classic fabrics and colours in modern cuts. I also like the more fitted pieces like the olive blazer and grey tweed coat. You also have tweed in the form of a puffer jacket which is fresh. Fendi It's hard to pick one trend here, I like the prints, it's very modern. The more classic pieces with the zipper details feel very nuanced…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Prada, Costume National and Moschino

Fall 2014 RTW : Prada, Costume National and Moschino

These are some very strong collections from Prada and Moschino. Also reviewing Costume National from Milan Fashion Week.     Prada It's Prada taking inspiration from art yet again and it's beautiful. You can see the difference in the feminine sleek clothing and the masculine oversized one layered over it. Eventually it breaks through and merges together to form something very beautiful. I really like the sheer dresses with the piping. Costume National There's a nice mix of activewear and tailored fashion. I don't find it too flattering though, possibly the only thing…Read more
Fall 2014 RTW : Gucci, Alberta Ferretti and Ports 1961

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 : Missoni, Salvatore Ferragamo and Emilio Pucci

Spring 2014 RTW : Missoni, Salvatore Ferragamo and Emilio Pucci

Spring 2014 RTW at Milan Fashion Week : Missoni, Salvatore Ferragamo and Emilio Pucci   Missoni There was a new direction for the staple Missoni stripes. This time they were more subtle in the silhouette of the birds and waves, the necklines and in the arrangement of colours. I love the first skirt with the slit and the print.   Salvatore Ferragamo I'm not particularly fond of python prints (fake or real), or any snake print for that matter. It's 100% a result of my Ophidiophobia. That said, I do like the asymmetric pleats…Read more
