Milan Fashion Week F/W 2011 – Alberta Ferretti

Alberta Ferretti Fall Winter 2011
Oh, how I love you, thigh high boots (among other shoes). The rainbow-coloured Fall/Winter 2011 collection from Alberta Ferretti show kicked my Milan melodramatics into gear. With a combination of some of the season’s most stimulating hues, barely-there hemlines, and interesting metallic brocade prints, Ferretti’s prerogative was to design something for (stylish) everyone.

Milan Fashion Week F/W 2011 – D&G

D&G Fall Winter 2011
I always loved Alphabet Soup. My apparent blood brothers – Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce – look they they do, too. For Fall/Winter 2011’s D&G show, roughly 100 alphabet-inspired separates were asking us to spare a fashionable vowel. The collection carefully reflected the super style soundtrack – Madonna’s “Vogue”. It was stupendous, neon elaborance at it’s best. See the top five looks below! View Full Post

Milan Fashion Week F/W 2011 – Moschino

Moschino Fall Winter 2011
Moschino worships menswear for the XX chromosome according to their Fall/Winter 2011 show. Inspired by “the fashionable crowd“, there was a heavy emphasis on the body of an impeccably-dressed, curvy woman. While the collection was not as brazen as before, the tuxedo, riding pant, and top hat interjections contributed to the brand’s cheeky legacy. See the top five looks below! View Full Post

Milan Fashion Week F/W 2011 – Francesco Scognamiglio

Francesco Scognamiglio Fall Winter 2011
Francesco Scognamiglio (say it three times fast) is the go-to man for exclusive star style. His designs – especially from Fall/Winter 2011 – are dramatic, and inspired by the feasible relationship of romance and sin. Where cleavage was on show, it was prescriptive. Where grandiose fox hems were placed, there was a connection with the discreet. Where 5-inch, thigh-high boots swelled with Swarovski crystals, leg was visible through the most micro of minis. It was a performance I could watch again and again: truly phenomenal. See the top five looks below! View Full Post

Milan Fashion Week F/W 2011 – Gucci

Gucci Fall Winter 2011
Gucci owes a lot to designer Frida Giannini. It is strange and beautiful that the 1970s suiting could procure such a seamless Carmen Sandiego semblance. The well-dressed women of future Fall fashion are going to love the pussy bow ties and rich hues a la Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2011. I could try and sum it up as ‘Gangster Bohemia’, but the Faye Dunaway inspiration made it feel to enigmatic to be categorized. See the top five looks below! View Full Post
