With Paris in our sights we look back on our favourites form Milan Fashion Week. In times where investments on truely amazing fabrics can be a tough decision, we are pleased to see a lot of winter fabrics turning over into the spring collections, and what perfect timing, right when we're thinking about what to make for the winter. Indulge in your Leather(ette), Fur, Mock- Crock, and Hi-Tech, because it looks like you're going to be able to wear it until May!
The combination of silky metallics with braided and bobby pined hair, Emporio Armani's show was reminiscent of a community that have emerged from an underworld fairytale.
Karl Lagerfeld takes huge advantage of new technologies in fabric that may come his way. We love that he's given us confidence in investing in Leather (or leatherette) right before our winter, knowing that we'll be able to carry on wearing it in spring.
Gucci has given us a sports luxe way of creating our drapey silk dresses this year. Below the knee, relaxed fit, yet glamorous as hell.
We love all kinds of quirky and original fabric, the more advance the fabric, the better. However it's hard to know what to construct out of it without looking like a circus ring leader. We love the silhouettes at Jil Sander for these reasons. Clean and sleek without being boring, and working as a blank canvas for whatever crazy fabrics you desire.
It wouldn't be spring without COLOUR. We love Just Cavali's mash-up of prints, colours and texture.
Prada gave us SEQUINS. Sequinned bras, dresses, coats, and coats with Bras. We're inspired to EMBELLISH.
More futuristic, metallic looks came down the runway at Roberto Cavali. The Robot look might be a bit much for your sunday stroll, but we certainly have a few new ideas of what to do with our range of mock-croc and other amphibious textures.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have us dreaming of Sicily collection after collection. Last time, they gave us a beautiful array of lipstick-red lace on the runway. This time, as they show relation between the Island and Greece, they have given us GOLD.
In Celebrating their 30th anniversary, Moschino pulled out all their iconic looks and sent them down the runway on the catwalk legends. We love this red duo and we have the perfect fabrics to re create the look.
