The Italian Designers once again showed a diverse range of both fun and wearable fashions in Milano.
Roberto Cavalli’s sexy fringing dresses swished down the runway while American designer Jeremy Scott brought fast food chic to Moschino. Bottega Veneta’s gentle pleating was elegant and Dolce & Gabbana continued their love of old Italian style with their Once upon a time in Sicily themed show. Dsquared2’s went for a retro 60s look while Emilio Pucci showed that casual can be sexy in well cut trousers and knee-high boots.
But just what were the main trends to come out of Milan?
Whether it is a coat or a jumper, just make sure that your outerwear swamps you for the little girl lost look. Get inspired by Sportmax, Prada, Maxmara, Fendi and Emilio Pucci.
Androgynous dressing is back but that doesn’t mean you have to look manly. Well cut suits can look feminine and flattering as shown at Blumarine, Emporio Armani, Jil Sander, Giorgio Armani, Tods and Versace.
Colour on the catwalks was sophisticated and soft, not pastel but muted shades from olive and moss green to thistle blue and dusky rose. These could be seen at Alberta Ferretti, Giorgio Armani, Missoni, Jil Sander, Gucci and Tods.
If you can find anything in gorgeous flowing fabrics that look like they have been touched with an artist’s brush then buy them now. Organic and interesting they make a statement while being on trend. We liked the ones at Alberta Ferretti, Etro, Dolce & Gabbana, Just Cavalli, Roberto Cavalli and Marni.
Knee High Boots
These boots were made for walking – whether with a skirt or trousers, heeled or flat it doesn’t matter as long as they are knee-high! Get your inspiration from Emilio Pucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Sportmax, Tods, Versace and Gucci.
