Milan Fashion Week (MFW)

Here are some of my favorite looks from Milan Fashion Week so far!

Fausto Puglisi’s collection consisted of floor length gowns, bralettes, crop tops, a line skirts as well as bold black and white futuristic prints. His colorway also consisted of metallic gold, lime green and powder blue. When I first saw his collection, I got a simplistic futuristic vibe. Each piece is structured and edgy, yet in the collection he also displays feminine silhouettes. I loved that fact each of the outfits were accessorized with either embellished gladiator sandals or pool slides, making each look practical yet still high fashion. I can’t wait to see more of Fausto Puglisi..

I was absolutely wowed by Blumarine’s collection, it was so romantic and whimsical. I loved the floral details and beautiful white lace, it made the designs very soft and feminine. The sheer in this collection was just stunning, each piece looked so effortless and chic, I had my eye on a sheer floral gown. It was just so beautiful, all in all Blumarine knows how to make a woman look elegant and sexy effortlessly. I’m in love..

And now for the most talked about collection from Milan Fashion Week so far.. Jeremy Scott for Moschino. Cue, Aqua “Barbie Girl”. OK I’m done reliving my childhood, back to the fashion. Well only two words come to mind and that’s think pink! Barbie ’ s signature plastic pink was showcased throughout the collection as well as black and gold. There were sweater dresses and crop tops with mini skirts adorning the classic Moschino logo, they even had a roller barbie roller blade down the runway! I love the idea of fun fashion, I mean we are all children at heart.

Versace’s collection wowed from start to finish. I am currently obsessed with the sleek black and white tailored skirt suits and oversized white stitching. There was also a sophistication of prints displayed throughout most of the designs on the runway. I saw color blocking as well as crystal mesh adorning cocktail dresses and two piece ensembles. The collection displayed bold print, colour, as well as structure and simplistic feminism. Donatella offered a variety of complete looks for us to enjoy, she definitely did not disappoint.

Last but not least, Stella Jean! Her Haitian roots were so proudly displayed on the runway through her vibrant prints and colour! She interweaves various prints and patterns that would normally contradict each other but instead, they compliment each other. Her collection offered a silhouette variety, each piece so beautifully crafted and displayed. I enjoyed the variety of shapes, colours, and patterns. I loved the way she incorporated jerseys into her collection. The aesthetic for this collection was definitely exotic with a sporty chic vibe. Excellent use of colour.

J Lo at The Met Gala 2013

The theme was punk and it was so eloquently done in this Michael Kors sequined leopard gown. Jennifer Lopez looked amazing, the dress was made for her. She was my favorite that night.

SJP at The Met Gala 2014

Sarah Jessica Parker looked absolutely stunning in her Oscar De La Renta gown at last year’s Met Gala. A modern day Cinderella, a vision and definitely my favorite look of the night. SJP gives me Carrie fever!

In April, Alexander Wang took to his new Instagram account to announce his collaboration with H&M. The announcement was a video of a basketball score board displaying a countdown, at 11:06 the buzzer went off! I know what you’re thinking, is it Nov 6th yet? Well the answer is no, fortunately for us we have received the ultimate sneak peek. Amid fashion week, Rihanna was seen sporting a complete Wang × H&M ensemble. She wore a pair of gray and black leggings with a matching long sleeve crop top. Both ensembles boldly displayed Wang ‘s name. Judging from this sneak peek, it’s safe to say that the aesthetic for this collection will definitely be “sporty”. The collection will be available for both women and men and is said to hit 250 stores worldwide and online. Wang has stated that “This will be a great way for a wider audience to experience elements of the Alexander Wang lifestyle”
