Milan Fashion Week
Milan fashion week is going on right now, and of course I have been keeping up with the shows online. As usual there are lots of fur coats on the Milan runways for winter. Some of my favorite shows so far have been Gucci, Prada, and Dsquared2. Frida Gianni, the designer for Gucci, designed lots of black python mixed with purple stiff fabrics. Throughout the show the collection evolved and became more fluid and elegant. I loved the feathers and silk at the end of the Gucci show. Miuccia Prada did not design patterns like she did last season. Instead she designed coats with bulky arms in solid colors. Prada also played around with skirt lengths, making the left side longer than the right. I love the bow ties and hats in the Dsquared2 collection.
Here is a great website to keep up with the shows in Milan http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/category/womens-fashion/mfw-women-fall-2013/?ref=womens-fashion
