I’ve been so late in the game with this Milan round up. I’ve been keeping up with the collections pretty well for Paris Fashion Week, but Milan flew by me! Milan hosted some seriously dreamy collections, so without further adieu, here are my favorites from the beloved Italian city’s fashion week.
The 70’s have been all over the runway, but this collection takes the sweet and sexy side of the decade and updates it. Luxurious satin and sheer, skin exposing pieces ruled this collection, creating a sexy and chic take on classic hippie style. Flower Power was another motif for the Spring, whether flowers were embossed or used as a pattern, the result was the same; sexy, strong pieces suited for the woman who is free from her inhibitions, a la 70’s.
With strong graphic motifs throughout this collection,Fendi wasn’t afraid to spice it up for Spring. Fendi sent look after look of elegant ease down the runway, with looks that seemed to be aimed at a younger audience than that of collections past. Sharp collars, bright prints,feathers and sexy strappy details all came along nicely in this collection. One of the best of the season, Fendi didn’t disappoint.
Spring for Agnona was all about silhouettes. Sculptural elements, like slashed and paneled skirts, really helped to define this collection, which also featured sleek metallic dresses in muted jewel tones. There’s a sort of mythological vibe to many of these looks; think an updated uniform for a Greek goddess or warrior. Gold arm cuffs and chunky heels in black, wood, and gold all create a strong visual statement for a collection composed of visually stimulating pieces. Wrap skirts and dresses were done in variations of the classic, and perfect tailoring really took this collection to the top. Agnona aced this season.
Dolce & Gabbana
Dolce & Gabbana really know all about the dolce vita. Baroque style detailing was present per usual, on pieces ranging from hot pant and cropped military jacket sets to all lace dresses. This collection was very sexy, with some serious Matador chic looks. Spanish style was clearly an influence for the designers who presented a collection that was ornate in the all right ways.
This collection was absolutely breathtaking.Sweet florals were paired with loose gowns in the lightest and sheerest fabrics. Plunging necklines and sheer dresses sans lining made this feminine collection sexy and ethereal. Luisca Beccaria really packed a punch with this collection, which was elegant in its approach, and young and free with it’s details.
