Again, Milan Fashion Week! It was such an awesome event, it’s impossible to forget. This time, we bring you the 5 hottest collections that enchanted the catwalk in Milan, according to opinion leaders Fashionista. Other collections could have made it to this list, but that would probably mean including them all – yes, all of them were amazing in their own unique style.
Armani made use of their strongest features, combined in an astonishing way, to deliver a collection filled with already classic items, made modern with simple twists by their genious designers. We want to highlight the soft-shouldered jackets in sweet soft colours, green, pink and blue – the trick was in the contrast created by the double-pleated wide trousers with a metallic look. The dresses were also beautiful and light, with the Armani’s floral signature at the neckline.
Roberto Cavalli searched for inspiration in the entertainment and show bizz industries, with a strong spectacle of light and sound! The ’20s were reinterpreted by Cavalli in a very seductive and luxurious way, with sexy animal prints, details in art deco, big necklaces and flapper dresses!! Cavalli is back in great shape, sexy and bold as we were used to.
Prada went for a mix between sporty and luxe. Taking athletic wear and adding glamour to it, they achieved an artful and beautiful collection for the spring 2014. This mix can be “weird” at first sight, but the final result, after a few moments, brings us to a happy mood. Some can maybe call on the childish details or the lack of balance between colours and pieces, but the truth is, this collection and its fresh ideas are impossible to ignore.
Dolce & Gabbana offered us a great show, despite the real danger of shut down due to tax evasion charges. A surprising and daring combination of prints, three-dimensional appliqués, polka dots, lace and glimmering gold, resulting in absolut amazement. Feminine dresses with printed lithography of temple ruins, Sicilian ceramics and almond tree flowers were the outstanding items, but the huge coins featured on belt and shoe buckles, as well as in earrings, necklaces and handbags were also noticed. This season, models stormed the runway dripping in head-to-toe gold, which had a pretty powerful effect.
The italian brand headed by Sylvia Fendi with the contribuition of Karl Lagerfeld presented a stunning and surprisingly colourful spring collection, with attention grabbing clothes in an awesome play with different sized pieces in cute shapes. They tried to explore prints and textures, achieving amazing details and silhouettes, despite the simplicity of forms. The fur obsession of last season was also kept and warmed the collection a little bit!
