Milan Fashion Week SET 2013 // Best of day 4 & 5

Saturday, September 28, 2013

Day 4 and 5: Dolce and Gabbana was definitely my favourite! The golden dresses, the coins and the classic inspiration... loved it!

In Giorgio Armani's show "the models often came in sets in complementary designs that emphasized the effect of the designer's bold color palette and play on "lights and shadows." On its own, a fuchsia blazer is dynamic. Coming down the runway with a periwinkle partner (and mix-and-match heels), it had all the more impact. The same could be said of a floaty cobalt and black babydoll duo, painterly cocktail numbers, floral lace suiting, and the prettiest of pastel wrap dresses. Not to be outdone by the pairs, standout numbers had as much impact on their own. After all, it doesn't take more than one look at a billowy, shimmering cocktail dress to make an impact - some things are one of a kind." fashionologie

"Missoni collection was a pastiche of ideas that ranged from Indian sarongs and Japanese pop songs to volcano prints, seascapes, florals, and even a new riff on the house's logo. But while this collection included multitudes, it never felt too busy. Missoni is a master, after all, and she managed to distill all those references into a vibrant offering of separates and dresses with remarkable character and spirit." fashionologie

"Dolce & Gabbana show features an explosion of beautifully created garments decorated with eye-catching, sparkly elements. The designers billed this offering as "an imaginary journey to rediscover ancient Sicily, where history and myth come together," and to that end, the house employed some truly glorious techniques. A painterly branch-and-leaf print on a white fabric was embedded with pink silk flowers to create a number of almost surreal dresses. More flowers emerged from dresses whose patterns mimicked traditional Sicilian ceramic tiles - though at times the designers let those patterns stand on their own." fashionologie

"Moschino's show, which celebrates the brand's 30th anniversary, threw a gigantic party on the runway. Cleveland opened the show dancing down the runway in a sleeveless ball gown with a cow on the front and back of it. Another few icons also shimmied their way out and back before the show really opened, with models coming two-by-two in a sort of saints and sinners theme. The pairings included chaste and sexy takes on nun's habits, maid's uniforms, and nurse's attire, among other things. If the distinction between good and bad was ever hard to tell, handy belts and handbags that said "Good Girl" and "Bad Girl" were a handy reference tool." fashionologie

"Minimalism embraced the season's top trends at Jil Sander's Spring 2014 show. Crop tops were in full effect, as were sheer layers, full skirts, and floral prints - all executed in a distinctly Sander way!" fashionologie

Roberto Cavalli's show "wasn’t just about "sexy." At today's Milan show, the designer sent his powerful models down the runway in retro Old Hollywood gowns, glamorous fur stoles, tough-girl biker jackets, and some of the fiercest pastels we've ever seen." fashionologie
