The Best of Street Style from Milan Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2012.
Milan isn’t on board. The Italian Chamber of Fashion has complained that moving shows like Max Mara and Gucci back any further would mean they would not be able to send their orders into production quickly enough to satisfy their buyers.
This means London Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week could show at the same exact time. Conde Nast (the publisher of Vogue, W, Glamour, etc) representative Jonathan Newhouse, the international charmain, said his editors will choose London over Milan.
Can a fashion week work without the likes of Anna Wintour and Franca Sozzani? I think a change will have to be made on someone’s behalf to keep all ‘fashion cities‘ happy!
I’m pretty sure Roberto Cavalli has earned himself the rights to the phrase, “Going For The Gold“. His Spring/Summer 2012 collection was practically blinding. Producing a brain twinkle similar to the sensation you get after staring into the sun for too long, this renaissance collection was the perfect way to end Milan Fashion Week.
The feel was light and sensual, though touted laborious detail. Gold sequins dances around, and even outlined, expert pleating. Garments opened in such a way that floral prints would reveal themselves only upon movement. There was even leopard-printed mousseline. Le sigh. Gold standard, in every way. View Post
Anna Molinari has created the most wonderfully unhinged collection for Spring/Summer 2012. With no idea of what would come, I was experiencing major lust while the Blumarine designer sent out first looks of covetable feminine sweetness: full-skirted sundresses dripping with the colours of hazy, youthful summers in Capri (and beautiful raffia!).
While every look was being mentally added to my wishlist, suddenly, a fluorescent orange shrunken neoprene biker jacket and matching neoprene micro-shorts emerged. Wake up, Milan Fashion Week! Blumarine is here! Shameless, 3-dimensionally embellished, and seductive – more vibrantly-hued garments strutted out with sequins, patent fabrics, fur, and more neoprene. Molianari is incredibly talented, always creates exciting pieces, and damn, you have to admire the creative cajones. View Post
