Milan and Paris, unsurprisingly, are my favorite locations for fashion week; it's definitely like the Super Bowl of fashion. I also prefer F/W Ready to Wear to S/S Ready to Wear, so you can imagine my enthusiasm.
The Milan Fashion Week F/W0809
February 24, 2008
Rather than breaking up Milan's fashion week into separate parts, I realize that it'll be more overwhelming (in a good way) to splash into this crazed world of fashion all at once. Care to join?
This is probably one of my favorite collections in Milan -- a stunning, cohesive yet diverse collection. I can't even begin to call out my favorite pieces for I'm almost speechless. I love the creative neckline of Agyness's coat and the oh-so elegant dress on Lily is to die for! The collection had a few dresses that would suit S/S more (like the one-shoulder pink dress), aside from being the black sheep, I would love to see similar dresses in the S/S09 collection. I didn't realize that my picks were siding towards the brighter parts of her collection, but the darker pieces are equally gorgeous. Did I mention how fierce the shoes are?! I love it! I miss the long, flowy hair and I hope to see that next time. Oh, and more brownie points: Daria opened and closed the show. Leave it to Versace to save fashion week.
You know, with the exception of the random, high ski beanies, I actually like this collection, even though its repetition at best. This to me screams fall/winter with the gorgeous autumn colors and if you check out the details via Style.com, you'll come face to face with exquisite accessories ranging from spiky bracelets to towering patent platforms. What really took the collection home for me and saved it, were the feather dresses; I'd love to get my hands on one. I also like the how Christopher tried to modernize the classic soul of Burberry with play of embellishments.
Milan was either a hit or miss for me this season, at least there's Paris is starting! What was your favorite show in Milan? What disappointed you? Who are you looking forward to see in Paris?
I'm almost afraid to blog about Paris FW because these take a while to do, and I have my mind set on blogging about: Dior, Westwood, Comme Des Garçons, Lacroix, McQueen, Chanel, Chloé, Lavin (!) and Miu Miu. Can't wait.
