Milan Fashion Week is almost over and here are the things I will remember. First of all, the beautiful Bottega Veneta collection. That dusty pink look on Gigi Hadid is absolutely perfect, the perfect match between femininity and masculinity, not to mention, Lauren Hutton walking down the catwalk. Bottega showed some really amazing trousers which is interesting since I usually love their dresses.
Then we have the feather details at Prada, oh my god! I would do almost anything for those PJ looks with feather details. “Instead of exploring the history of women, which I have for a while, I decided to take care of now, the present, and trying to find elegance.” Miuccia Prada said backstage. A gorgeous collection, which also focused on trousers.
Since I can remember, Jil Sander has been a favorite of mine. I believe it was when Raf Simons was creative director for the house that I started to fall in love with fashion, as well as visiting the Dries store in Paris for the first time. For two years now, Rodolfo Paglialunga has been the creative director for Jil Sander and this is his first collection which really made me fall in love.
The minimalistic style is still there. However, there's some volume and fabric play. There are some 80's element I could do without but the pleated dresses in pretty shades of peach, light blue, and yellow are simply beautiful.
Marni oh Marni, a perfect collection from start to finish. The color choices (red, pink and green among others) are pure perfection. The collection is architectural and artsy, very Marni. And just like at Jil Sander, we saw pleats.
Last but not least for now, Dolce & Gabbana. A very traditional Dolce & Gabbana show, with fun prints on feminine dresses. They paired what Italians do best, perfect cut dresses and food. who wouldn't want to wear a dress with a pizza on it?
