It’s official Milan Fashion Week has beat out New York Fashion Week, at least that’s my humble opinion so don’t take offense. This year’s Autumn/Winter shows had me in awe. Let’s get started with a recap of what was my favorites at Milan Fashion Week.
DSQUARED2 – The song ‘Suit&Tie’ definitely resonated at the DSQUARED2 show. Dan and Dean Caten chose menswear inspired looks for their womenswear collection. There was an array of oversized fedoras in different colors, double bow ties and double-breasted blazers. There’s something about a woman in a suit…..
VERSACE- What inspired Donatella Versace? Punk or as she puts it, Vunk. And that’s just what viewers got from this collection. Rock n’ Roll reigned supreme in this 90’s-esque punk rock collection of shiny leather, oversized coats, mini skirts, and bright whites, blacks, and the occassional yellows and reds. Which hit me with flashbacks from ‘Clueless‘.
ETRO– Etro’s autumn/winter 2013 collection was full of geometric designs, and abstract and kaleidoscope patterns in bright colors and muted hues. 3 words: I love it!!
DOLCE & GABBANA- Catholic Royalty was the name of the game, or at least that’s what I thought, in Milan. The designers drew inspiration from Byzantine mosaics, and had the models adorned in golden crowns and jewels. It’s classy. It’s elegant. It’s romantic. It’s perfection!
ROBERTO CAVALLI- Floral and furs in black and white and red, blue, and greens were very abundant on Cavalli’s runway. I fell in lust with a few looks, looks full of opulence, decadence, and the over-the-top fabulousness that Roberto Cavalli is known for. Peta beware.
