Let’s take a trip to Milan and indulge in their sweet taste of apparel, week shall we? The whole idea makes my heart jump and to be honest that’s exactly what my heart did when all the designers showed their RTW Fall/Winter collections in Milan for fashion week.
For starters it was the Max Mara signature outerwear collection that captured my eyes. Showcasing luxury, textured fabric like tweeted coats, metallic gold skirts and gorgeous cardigans that will be key for this coming winter season. In alignment with it’s neutral brown/black palette the collection features relaxed shapes giving a almost grunge feel to the apparel.
The Woolrich Jhon Rich & Bros really did it this season. Taking am outdoorsy approach fashion, they took things a step forward by adding touches of fur and shear lings to their iconic parkas, creating dazzling outerwear paired up with maxi skirts and pretty sweaters.
Designers Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2, revived the 1960’s. They focused on sleek fitted silhouettes,with short hemlines. From shift dresses to swing coats and more, they had it all.
Anna Molinari is another designer that used the famed 60’s, for her Fall/Winter collection of the Blugirl. Chic and feminine, with a color palette that varied from pastels to bold animal print, appropriately portraying the good girl vs. the rebel of the 60’s.
If I could have an entire collection hanging in my closet Emilio Pucci would be the name on the tag. Inspired by his roots, Peter Dundas designed it’s collection with rich leather fabrics, bold printed knits and eye catching embellishments.
This season Giorgio Armani showed a variation of gray, black, and “LIME” green tones. In his words, “Lime green is a color that stands out, a stimulating color that represents something more… something avant-garde. ” Well hats off to Mr. Giorgio Armani, you have let us breathless once again!
