Bad hair day? Wrap it up!
Fashion looks east for inspiration.
The intrepid fashion flock moves ever onwards. As the shows begin in Paris, flash back with Report Card to see what restrained (mostly!) acts of creativity had critics buzzing each day in Milan.
Psst… Roberto! Yes, you of the leopard spots–want to know the silver lining of showing the last day? In a Milan season where minimalism is king, when you show opposite the Caten twins’ homage to O.P.U.L.E.N.C.E., critics will consider your white leather lace trousers positively restrained thereby boosting your fashion week GPA. Here’s what they had to say.
Following her fairly recent gender reassignment surgery, the fashion world’s most prominent (and gorgeous) transgender model Lea T.’s career is still going strong. She popped up on the last day of Milan Fashion Week yesterday, opening and closing Philipp Plein.
Ferragamo‘s spring 2013 collection doesn’t hit the runway in Milan until tomorrow at 6 p.m. (that’s noon EST for those of you who want to tune in and watch it stream live), but we’ve got an exclusive look at what’s to come. Ferragamo Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti has given us a sketch from his new collection.
Let’s get one thing clear: Heritage is the name of the game this season in Milan. So critics were actually pretty excited when MaxMara went back to its house codes (read: Sharp safari-wear for the urban jungle). But, oh, that Miuccia. Girl gets extra credit for making Japonaiserie of all things look, well, the most original it’s ever been. Find out what everyone had to say about these two aesthetically different collections.
You say you want a revolution.
Ciao, Milan! It’s a little over a week till the official unofficial start of Red Carpet Season (AKA: the Emmys), and on the first day of Milan fashion Week Alberta Ferretti got the party started early sending out even-more-beautiful-than-usual shimmering, glimmering evening gowns. Meanwhile, Frida Giannini earned top marks with critics for turning back to the Dolce Vita era for a look that was very Gucci, if not Gucci, Gucci.
Let me guess, you aren’t reading this post from Milan, are you? No? Me either. That’s why all of us sitting at our desks right now can be grateful that Milan’s designers have fully embraced the live stream. Can you say P-R-A-D-A? And hello Ferragamo and Gucci! So, take a bathroom break at school/work/set an alarm to wake up at 2:30 in the morning to watch from your bed, glue yourself to your smartphone/computer and relish your front row seat at Milan’s hottest shows.
