It’s also ended the Milan fashion week, and as happened for London and New York, I have to admit that the collections presented ht me pleasantly. My favourites are:
The F/W collection by Paola Frani brings on catwalk a woman with a dual personality. If, in one side, she’s serious and strict on her masculine clothes, in the other is more frivolous and vain and she doesn’t give up the sparkle of sequins and delicacy of lace. A feminine and refined collection, made even more beautiful by mood and atmospheres typical of 20′s.
In this collection, Miuccia Prada took over all the heads of the male wardrobe, giving them a different mood, less androgynous and more feminine, inspired by military. The sleeveless coats, open under the breast, to wear rigorously over trousers, taking the place of evening dresses; the tailleurs are embellished with plastic embroidery on shoulders and chest . The silhouette is emphasized by the innovative shape of the pants: slim, high waist and slightly flared at the bottom.
Back to basic for Donatella Versace who for this season F/W celebrates her brother Gianni and his collection of 1997, recovering the leit motiv: byzantine crosses that embellish bustier dress, rigorously leather. The collection is completed by sequined and metallic evening dress.
MARCO DE VINCENZO
A sought, on the architectures od dresses, and simply elegant collection, tought for a woman who makes simple elgance her trump card. Soft and defined forms are a tribute to italian tailoring tradition.
A delicate and sophisticated collection that celebrates the essence of woman and her femininity. A triumph of chiffon, laces and embroidery that embellish dresses and skirts with pastel and neutral colors. A hyn to simplicity, refinement and elegance.
Dark sensuality: this is the key word of F/W collection by Alberta Ferretti. Chiffon dresses, embellished by feathers and sequins, that play with semi-transparent effect, feminine and sensual. A security on her seductive power expressed also on male suit with a graphic line.
The collection is a celebration of Blugirl’s girl: a lolita with a fresh, playful but also romantic and elegant style. The first part of the show brings on catwalk the school girl: stripes and roar prints are principal themes; The second part, instead, shows pastel tones that paint furs, coats, skirts and accessories; the third part brings to stage a candid and total white winter; the last part, instead, is dedicated to cocktail time and shows endless conjugations of classic black dress.
This collection celebrated an aggressive but elegant woman, with a little rock allure. Victorian, floral and dark prints are masterly mixed as soft laces, velvet and silk are mixed with leather of dresses, for a confident woman who is conscious of her seductive power.
A fashion show, tribute to femininity and to masters of international couturière art. A very romantic ’50′s mood reinterpreted in a modern way: pastel colors, wrapping coats and bustier dresses with inserts and drapings to make geometric figures, give an allure of refined elegance.
A grow up enfant-terrible presented by Giorgio Armani for this season F/W. A funny and lively woman who has fun with ruches and volants. The principal pieces of the collection are: bermuda trousers,taffeta or sequined tops and micro dresses, berets, bags a flat shoes for a perfect french style.
A collection Marni’s style: colored, fresh and graphic. The volumes and the silhouette are defined, thanks to dresses viewed as architectures.
DOLCE e GABBANA
A very rich collection, almost baroque inspired by Sicily. For this F/W the brand proposes laces, gold embroidery, frescoes prints with flower, angels and cherubs. A far but always fascinating wealth.
Boyfriend inspiration for this collection. The brand proposes a woman who wears typical male clothes, without giving up her femininity. Principal pieces of the collection are: sheath dress, t-dresses, tuxedo jacket, coats and sailor caban.
A very energic collection. The woman proposed is dynamic, cheeky with a rock soul, as a new Joan Jett. The entire collection is inspired by rock world: fringes, slits on short dresses, sweatshirts, wire meshes… everything says: Rock ‘n roll!
Giorgio Armani also offers a woman with an androgynous style, bringing on catwalk male clothes. She is conscious of her charm and her femininity, no matter what she wears: she is strong and sensual and she’s not afraid to show it.
