milan fashion week

so milan is a tough one. it's not so much that you can wear these clothes as it is inspiring. i found it hard to pick just 3 per designer so i picked 6 looks and narrowed down the playing field of designers. so many things i'm obsessed with. i went through each one to describe what they all bring to the table.

*************

Missoni was probably my favorite of the bunch. The layering is insane! and the colors....arhghghghg. love. subtle yet defining. i'm also obsessed with the 20s long necklaces. superb.







*************

Another big fave was Marni. no big guess there. if i heart carried uber designers, these would have been one of them. love how it's styled especially. head scarves and sunnies. mixing patterns and colors like it's no big whoop. so much texture and volume without being overwhelming. A+







*************

wasn't expecting this one but i really liked dolce + gabbana. There are a few things that have been secret obsessions lately that were in this show. one is hole-y sweaters. here done a little more upscale then my thrift store finds but still. i've also been big on big floral patterns and animal prints..but done right. so bored of regular animal prints. add color! always add color ;)







*************

Fendi....another great mixture of volume and texture. it's very vintage modern. if that makes any sense. very classic yet fun. i'm in looooove with the floor length number. and more see-through items!! i know what i'm looking for this season. why wait for spring.







*************

emilio pucci had these amazing pants i found myself gravitating towards. i'm already searching for the perfect tapered pant as we speak. i threw in a few colorful dresses for good measure. plus the shoes ain't bad either.







*************

easy livin with bottega veneta. love things that look super comfy like that jumpsuit. plus i love onesies. throw in a dash of color and you've got yourself an outfit. bustier plus capris anyone? yes please.







*************

jil sander is known for her minimalist style. feels slightly more fall vibe to me (coat is rad btw) but hey i'm down with whatever. again longer skirts keep popping up. but i can't deny me a shorty either like this first one. i'm a sucker for legs. plus belts belts belts. cinch that waist in!







*************

last but not least there's prada that had some good moments. red lips are always killer. the scenic jackets and shorts are also pretty amazing. the fabric she's using on the onesie pieces looks slightly scaley and awesome. lastly that crystal dress number is pretty sweet. kinda mod and kinda digging it...but maybe it's cuz you can SEE THROUGH IT. catching on yet?
