The plan had been to follow the fashion week happenings in a chronological order, my review of London Fashion Week was next but I saw this Dolce & Gabbana collection and I could NOT wait.
It grabbed my attention and what I find so so mesmerizing is the detail, the vibrant colours, the accessories, the way it all just comes alive. The collection was inspired by Sicily, where Domenico Dolce is from. I find the collection so fascinating, I can’t help myself. The detail, Oh the detail. Never mind that this is almost to be expected by the design duo, they do florals and detail so well.
Notice the rafia fabric and vibrant colours, the graphic images sketched on dresses and tops and skirts, lol. I love this collection and I could wear some of the pieces. Notice the stripes in this collection too, major trend for S/S ’13 for sure.
The bags were stunning as well, and we’d have to come up with a name for the earrings – Über statement earrings. It made for such great viewing, all 86 pieces in the collection. The art and creativity of it all is what really gets me excited, never mind if some of the pieces are actually not wearable, fashion is art.

Milan Fashion Week has swirled to an end with great great fashion to remember, and check out in stores and on the fashion scene. Right about now, all roads, train tracks and air spaces lead to Paris for another week of gorgeous fashion. Can’t wait to see what Paris Fashion Week has waiting. To say goodbye to Milan, i took a look again at some of my favourite pieces from the collections I didn’t blog about.
There was a purity about all that white lace at Dolce & Gabbana, inspired by a bride’s hope chest when she’s packing off to her new life.

It was animal motif in all shapes, colours, styles and textures at Blumarine. Makes you look at animal print in a whole new way.
Blumarine worked some wonders with animal print
It was eclectic, candy coloured pieces and smiling models at Moschino cheap and chic. Someone had to get the fash pack to relax i guess. I like that it was fun, a true reflection of the season. Touched on the bright colours trend too.

Tribal Tribal Tribal at Missoni. Couple with LAMB at NYFW and we just might have a micro trend here.

Great collection by Emilio Pucci, touched two of the recurrent trends: Seventies, floaty chiffon. Love this edgy yet ultra feminine feel you get with leather on chiffon. This was my best look
