Milan Fashion Week Part 2
Milan Fashion Week Day 4
Milan finished up with some of the worlds best fashion shows and designers. On Day 4 alone there was Bottega Veneta, Jil Sander, and Pucci to name a few. Jil Sander was a special collection because it was the last season that Creative Director Raf Simons would design for the fashion house. In his place is the one and only, Jil Sander and Raf Simons who was rumored to be going to Dior is now only designing for his namesake label. But aside from the sad goodbyes, the collection was anything but depressing.
Jil Sander had a light hearted palate with bountiful meters of fabric for the full silhouettes that walked the runway. The crowd cheered the collection on as many new that it was Raf’s last designs under the Jil Sander label.
The other collections that showed on February 25th, day 4 of Milan Fashion Week were:
Bottega Veneta, Emporio Armani, Mila Schön, Sportmax, Silvio Betterelli, Massimo Rebecchi, Antonio , arras, Ter et Bantine, and Emilio Pucci
Milan Fashion Week Day 5
On Day 5 Milan let loose a flurry of prints and popping patterns at Marni and Missoni. The collections were all fun and flighty except for Dolce and Gabbana who showed golden gilded dresses with black lace straight from the 19th century. The pieces were so serious that even the Queen of Scots would have found them a bit regal.
Chopping block or not, this collection was a stunner and will be one of the shows that will be remembered when in 5 years an image of one of these designs pops up, you will remember from which season it was initially designed, which designers and from where. Fall 2012, Dolce and Gabbana, and Fall 2012.
The other collection that made waves was the Marni Ready-to-wear line. It was chalk full of prints and really demonstrated how the Marni for H&M capsule collection was truly mirrored after the Fall 2012 looks.
Some of the other designers that showed during Milan Fashion Week Day 5, February 26th were:
Trussardi, Laura Biagiotti, Byblos, Missoni, Frankie Morello, Salvatore Ferragamo, Aquilano.Rimondi, Roberto Musso, and Versus
Milan Fashion Week Day 6
Really the last day of Milan Fashion Week, Day 6 was jam packed with all the usual great designers such as Dsquared2, Giorgio Armani, Roberto Cavalli, Gianfranco Ferre and many others. If you missed all the other days of Milan Fashion Week you did not want to miss this day.
Giorgio Armani was a beautiful yet casual take on menswear for the modern day woman. The slouchy suiting and angled fedoras gave a 1930’s gangster feel to an otherwise pretty look. Easy Chic was Armani’s title for the collection was that it was. The looks were derived from the Couture collection he showed just a month before and the ladies wore pants and had feminine puffs of pochette squares as they walked sturdily down the runway.
If the Amani looks were too harsh for your tastes all you had to do was wait an hour and watch the Roberto Cavalli line. The feminine silhouettes were unmatched only to the prints that were used on the pieces. Cavalli knows no bounds!
Other Collections that showed on Milan Fashion Week Day 6 were:
Dsquared2, normaluisa, Alviero Martini 1a Classe, and Lorenzo Riva.
