Milan Fashion Week: 4 Memorable Looks
Paris Fashion Week has just begun, but we thought we should bring you a review of some memorable looks from Italy.
The curtain came down on Milan Fashion Week earlier this week, giving us no breathing room before the scene shifted to Paris. Nevertheless, we must revisit the runways of Italy and that is exactly what we managed to do, while piecing together our Academy Awards coverage. Here then are four labels who caught everyone’s attention in Milan. They certainly caught our eye here, against the backdrop of the Italian city known for its style.
All sorts of funky and chic, Karl Lagerfeld injected lots of color into the fur filled collection for Fall/Winter. With Kendall Jenner opening the show for the brand, we were treated to some thigh-high boots not only in numerous shades but also in materials so supple that they looked more like wrinkled woolly tights.
Dolce & Gabbana
The duo upped the ante and the glitter for the fairy tale themed collection. From the invites to the décor (witness Cinderella’s bed on stage), they would have made any fairy godmother jealous. Closing their princess parade was a shimmering squadron of models who sashayed out in mini-dresses.
While D&G were all sunshine and roses, Armani went in the opposite direction. Both Emporio and Giorgio Armani collections saw black dominating the show. The suit-based collection saw the Milanese maestro incorporate his favorite material, velvet.
With news of dwindling fortunes and no revival in sight, the brand needed this collection to be a hit. The show saw models walk down the runway with bundles of over-sized gold keys, intending to signify that these were women with responsibilities.
