Milan Fashion Week Spring 2012: Part II
Welcome to Part II of Milan Fashion week where I’ll be sharing the rest of the swoon-worthy looks showcased by the Italian design houses.
You can see where we left off yesterday over here
Jil Sander was clean and sophisticated as always. My two favorite looks were this great, demure but sexy emerald green dress and...
This completely adorable shorts/jacket combo in a muted paisley. I honestly couldn't pick between the two!
Versace was sexy and fun, per usual, and featured great studded cocktail dresses, bags & sandals.
The Moschino collection was heavily influenced by the Spanish matador style, but it also featured some smart dresses & separates. This black and white look was chic but fun with the Heidi braids and strappy gold heels.
Moschino's baby sister Moschino Cheap & Chic had a pretty entertaining fruit and vegetable-themed show for Spring. This watery shorts-suit was my favorite, though there were some extremely cute dresses on display as well.
Leave it to Karl to take an Nobel Prize winner as his inspiration for a Fendi collection. It was a pretty interesting show though despite the unlikely muse, I especially liked these striped trousers which are so perfect for Spring. This show was also styled exceptionally well, I really liked the bangles, shoes & bags.
Garance Dore really captures the great styling and accessories in her photos here from the front row.
I loved the prints and the nipped 50's waists shown at Prada, combined with the hair, clutches and peeptoes, it was a cute collection.
While MaxMara outerwear is always one of the highlights of MFW for me, I had to point out these curve-hugging colorblock dresses. To die for! I also really liked the point-shoe inspired multicolored heels. Very minimalist chic.
And what would a review of MFW be without mention of Gucci, which will be celebrating 90 years in the industry next week with a fabulous party in Florence?
While I loved the splashes of kelly green throughout the collection, this LBD w/ strappy gold heels and a sumptuous gold clutch won my heart.
The show was pure Gucci – dramatic, sleek and sexy with great architectural pieces mixed in. Check out the coverage of this show here.
