Milan Fashion Week: Armani and Bottega Veneta

After viewing these fashion shows, I was ecstatic to see COLOR! Finally, two designers use a palette not entirely made of neutral tones of black, gray, beige or white. Armani was my favorite show of the day because of the multiple bright colors and playful attitude of the clothes.

This dress is for my fellow blogger, Sarah.

This dress is my favorite. There’s nothing like red to make an outfit pop!

Milan Fashion Week: Dsquared, Gianfranco Ferré, Jil Sander and Versace

It’s day two of fashion week in Milan. On February 26, Dsquared, Gianfranco Ferré, Jil Sander and Versace revealed their fall fashions.


Dsquared’s line was my favorite out of the day. I love the stark contrast of black and red used subtly interlaced on the lipstick, dresses and tights. The majority of the clothes were black business suits with a 1940s and 1950s cut.

Gianfranco Ferré

This line featured a lot of black power business suits and neutrol tones of white, beige and gold. The gold dress is the boldest fashion choice by Gianfranco Ferré this season.

Jil Sander

Personally, I didn’t care for any of this designer’s clothing. I choice two of the more interesting samples. The first is a black plaid dress outfitted and the second a plaid suit that was replicated in many dark fall colors.

Milan Fashion Week: Fendi and Prada

It’s fashion week in Milan! On February 25, Fendi and Prada debuted the latest trends for fall. Here are selected pieces:


I love the balance of the white billowing sleeves and black shirt with black leggings. It looks very chic.

I’m never a fan of fur in fashion, but this one screamed Curella de Ville. Anna Wintour, anyone?

Again, I dislike the use of fur, but mustard is very in for the fall fashions. It was a huge theme during New York fashion week. The cut of the dress is calling back to the power suits of the 1980s.


A black dress is always in style, but this coming fall season, there is a hearkening back to the Victorian fashions.

There were several coats in this plaid style in variations of black, gold, purple and green.

I wasn’t floored by any of the designs from the Fendi and Prada shows, but it’s still early! What are some of your favorite fashions so far?
