Hello Fashionistas! I hope everyone had a fashionating weekend.
Why does Saturdays and Sundays seem to go by in such a hurry but Monday through Friday the time just drags on forever? OK, forever is a stretch but you get my drift. If you did anything fun, let me know. I was brainstorming this whole weekend for a few upcoming projects.
I did manage to check out Milan Fashion week and jot down several collections that were truly exceptional. Again, I was looking forward to several designers: Gucci, Fendi, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli. Unfortunately, none of those mentioned made my list of faves! Let's get started with my picks. And, as usual, feel free to disagree with me and share your choices.
I love the print of the two skirts above. Now, I'm an island girl, so I have many paintings and pictures depicting such scenes in my possession. It's lovely to see wearable art especially when that art is near and dear to my heart.
Romantic and whimsical are the two words that came to mind after viewing Alberta's collection. I love the romanticism of the dress pictured above and the whimsy of the one below. The unique designs and craftsmanship of both dresses are impeccable. This collection was actually my favorite!
Not really sure why I chose the dress above, except that the material looks a bit unusual. It doesn't seem comfortable to wear; almost stiff. The unusualness of it made it a conversation piece. Let me know what you think of this dress.
This snake print dress below is to die for. Love the cut-out at the cleavage area, criss cross around the neck and the diagonal slit. Fabulous!
I really enjoyed seeing the voluminous skirts and dresses from Philipp on the runway, but not too sure about the leather jackets for Summer. You can twirl for days in these skirts.
70s inspired was a theme for several designers showcasing at Milan Fashion week. I think Emilio did it best though. There were so many wearable pieces to choose from and that's what I look for in a designer. You have to ask yourself, can I wear this or is it just for the runway? I absolutely love the above pants suit because it's not a traditional pants suit. It's hip. It's chic. and it's groovy, lol. That nice pop of bright orange really sets it off.
Naomi Campbell has graced the catwalk yet again for another designer. She looks amazing and I've enjoyed seeing her famous strut. Brings back so many memories. I think we girls have all tried to imitate The Naomi strut.
You have to have a sense of humor to appreciate Moschino. Last year it was McDonald's inspired clothing and this year it's Barbie. One has to wonder (at least I'm wondering) if he was listening to Aqua's Barbie Girl when inspiration hit. I actually like that song, but it's never inspired anything further than a sing-a-long from me.
Would you wear this? Or the one above? I would love to hear your thoughts.
