MFW Trends Report

Milan’s shows elevated the level of this fashion week season, and I’m placing high hopes in Paris too…  Let’s start with the Italian folklore at Alberta Ferretti, Dolce Gabbana and Blumarine, tres Dolce Vita with pretty flowers appliqué and embroideries. On a totally different register be prepared to hunt for a boxing belt spotted at Pucci, Versace and again at Dolce&Gabbana, the goal here is to enhance and add toughness to a sexy silhouette. Gucci and Versace did a beautiful work of mixing sportswear dress code with evening attire (with a little SM touch at Versace of course), super inspiring if you want to be feminine and well dressed without all the inconvenience of spending too much time in front of your closet. The dots print is coming back (Sportmax, Dolce&Gabbana), kind of timeless. On the masculine side, I loved the oversized high waist pants at Marni and the 3 parts suit at Ferragamo. Prada like every season blew my mind but that’s for another post!

LFW TRENDS REPORT

If I had to choose one collection shown during London fashion week, it would be Burberry, I loved the pastels colors and embellished details, the pairing of a simple cardigan with an elegant sheer shirt and pencil skirt is just perfect. Christopher Kane had some interesting tears shape cut outs looks, Tom Ford presented an empowering collection, I particularly like the over the knee (laced and mirrored) boots that climb so high on the leg that they almost morph into a second skin. At Peter Pilotto and JW Anderson the complexity of some of the models reminded me of the origami style, we can only be amazed by the technical prowess. Last but not least, Doru Olowu’s colorful capes are definitely an ode to happiness and optimism , ideal to go through the long months of Winter ahead of us!

NYFW TREND REPORT

This season most of the NY designers presented laid back collections for example models were in majority in flat shoes which I’m sure they didn’t complained about! The exotic gateway with casual sophistication was celebrated at Altuzarra, Suno or The Row, minimalist gowns are making a big come back as seen at Rag & Bone (loved the bright orange lips and bare face), Edun and Reed Krakoff.

I also loved the embellished and detail printed skirts at Creatures of The Wind, Honor and Oscar De la Renta plus the pop of color at Ralph Lauren who presented a surprisingly refreshing collection.
