Milan Fashion Week – Dolce & Gabbana SS ’13

24 Sep

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: Moschino

25 Sep

I really liked the Moschino S/S 11 collection. Bold, strong, sharp and crisp, never mind that most of the pieces in the collection were quite over the top. It was sartorial precision at its ultimate. It was like power to the stylish woman! Strong cuts and silhouettes, polka dots gone crazy, western appeal, bright reds and blues, a cute lil LBD thrown in the mix. Stands out on its own in the middle of florals, sheers and maxis, not bad for fashion diversity in Milan. My favs

Love this LBD!

And the fash pack heads out to Milan!

Gucci gave an absolutely beautiful start to Milan fashion week by rolling out the most elegant collection. Totally up my alley, i am besotted with this collection. It was the glam factor, the lush fabrics and rich colour, the sheer sophistication, sleek hair and make up, heady air of elegance and the completeness of the collection. It was like the effortlessly stylish wardrobe of this uber glam city chic.

Almost impossible to settle for favourites. I LOVE the entire collection but well, for what its worth…here are my faves
