[Milan Fashion Week Hoopla]…Part 2

Egads! So it appears that Paris Fashion Week is already under way (when did that happen? The week isn’t even over!), so I’m a bit behind, but I have already started making notes of which collections I want to feature for my recaps of Paris Fashion Week. Until then, how about a wrap up of Milan Fashion Week, which features some great looks that are filled with color and pattern. There are also a ton of full silhouettes that make me super excited for the drape and fabric excess that S/S 2011 will have!

Gabriele Colangelo

Gianfranco Ferré

Georgio Armani

Trussardi 1911


Bally – this collection was small, but I LOVED the colors used. There’s this red dress that is just stunning.

Blumarine – although the dominating print was leopard (which I’m not much a fan of), I did love the pastels that were used in many of the looks

Versace – very sleek and ultra feminine fierce!

Versus – this was another collection in which I wasn’t too fond of the print choice (Tartan plaid), but I did love these 5 looks towards the end that had awesome colorblocking

Iceberg –  effortless comfort (full silhouettes), but still totally figure flattering and breezy

Dsquared – tons of variety! I loved the trouser and jacket combos. Great inspiration for weekend errand-running looks

[Milan Fashion Week Hoopla]…Part 1

The next stop on the Spring/Summer 2011 fashion train is Milan. And thus far, I’m thinking that the collections presented so far seem to be the classiest and most glamorous out of the bunch. (SN – I’m noticing that some of the collections on Style indicate as one city, but are filed under another, so if any of these (or past posts) contain collections for the wrong city, I apologize! ) We still have Paris to go, but as of right now, Milan collections are the ones that I think are the prettiest. I’m still waiting for Viktor & Rolf (and I really hope they show!!) but until then, here are my faves out of Milan thus far.

Bottega Veneta

Dolce & Gabbana


Salvatore Ferragamo


Brioni – LOVED the sleek, sexy, yet classy sportswear looks. Plus there was a beautiful melon color in 3 of the looks

Just Cavalli – Lots of pattern. Lots. (& fringe, but I don’t like fringe so I decided to just focus on the pattern play!)

Emporio Armani – GREAT collection of sleek, gray futuristic, yet chic looks
