Hello Fabs ! I hope all is well and that you are staying stylish as usual . Fashion month as I call it, is rolling full steam ahead. New York and London are in the books . As so Milan just bid us a farewell , let’s go back and see the high’s and low’s during Milan Fashion Week .
Gucci Spring 2014 Ready to Wear
Frida Giannini took the label’s Spring collection in a sporty new direction, with mesh T-shirts, basketball shorts, track pants, and exposed triangle bras. It brought about a platform for the elevation of sports wear .
ICEBERG Spring 2014 Ready to Wear
When fashion houses bring in new creative directors it can be a very frighting thing . I believe that Iceberg made a brilliant decision to anoint Alexis Martial with that role . Working under Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy for five years , Martial has a lot of fashion elite to impress. I think he did an amazing job ! When asked what inspired this collection , he simply replied “It’s a Boy Scout on a dreamed visit to Tokyo.” Martial’s riffs on the item were influenced by manga and decorated with Japanese letters, or printed with an iceberg. There was an emphasis on uniform and a strong preference for high-tech fabrics. I look forward to seeing many more amazing things from this designer !
Versace Spring 2014 Ready to Wear
Clearly someone is a rock fan ! It showed in this collection , a sort of ode to Mick Jagger if you will. It was the mean girls of hard rock who shaped the collection. The metal details came hard and heavy in the collection: studs on denim, mesh bandannas, chains round necks or harnessing torsos, hook-and-eye closings. All in all we saw the usual Versace with colors and elegant draping on the models. Also we saw the wild child that pops her head out from time to time. I think any fashionista would love wearing pieces from this collection next Spring .
Etro Spring 2014 Ready to Wear
Veronica Etro’s English grandmother, Audrey, used to bind her books in the beautiful fabrics that draped the Etro family’s life. In each volume, she’d write the time and place she read the book. That’s how we know the prints Veronica lifted from her gran’s library for her show today were from the 1940s. Graphic, abstract, naïve, whimsical, they were the heart of the collection.
