´Tis the season of fashion weeks and here were are at Milan, and Paris is just starting up. I loved the D&G collection at Milan Fashion Week, above it it was just very ¨Italian¨-the makeup, the hair, the fabrics, the colors, just the total ¨look¨in general. It got me very excited for my Milan trip in May and of course my August to come in Sardinia!
Hope you enjoy the looks! I absolutely adore the red dress. Would love to sport it for my birthday this year, conveniently located in Fall 2013…teehee.
Milan Fashion Week is always one of my favorites, I have a little obsession with Italian things-like their food, their languge, and their fashion designers.
We are still right in the middle of Milan Fashion Week so I will probably be adding more looks, as I still am waiting to see Marni, for example, and a few others, however here is a small sample of what I liked.
Trends: safari, army colors, floaty fabrics, lace
This Alberta Ferrari look is beautiful with the lace detailing.
Here we see some more intricate lace and beading from Gucci.
This Emporio Armani look brings back that army vibe, but in a clean, polished way.
A modern silhouette from MaxMara in army green. All the models wore these cool wrapped headbands which was a nice touch.
Since I adore army green and camel colors, I am usually a big fan of anything military style. MaxMara´s Milan fashion show was mostly military style with a few stripes and suspenders thrown in, and also displayed some beautifully made floor length coats. The suspenders and stripes seemed to be more of an afterthought, the incredible coats and military styling were what made this collection fantastic. See below for highlights.
Loved the Gucci show in Milan this season. What´s not to love? Black leather, black velvet, capes, feathersand transparent tops…talk about trendsetting! Dark, romantic, and sexy…it made a big impact.

For the past five years, Elena Miro, plus size clothing designer, has opened at Milan fashion week. This year, she was excluded. Head of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion Mario Boselli explained the council’s reasoning, telling AFP, “Some labels just weren’t in line with what ready-to-wear week should be. We wanted to champion the values of creativity to reaffirm Milan’s role in the world.” AKA plus size: not wanted. Miro held her own show later in the week. See below for image.
Now compare this, with an image from a model that walked in Milan´s Fashion Week.
WOW. Enough said. What do all you readers out there think? Is this fair? Please share your opinions!
