In Milan there were presented a lot of international brands but it was focused on the italian ones.
We all know that after Paris, Italy is one of the most important country for fashion!
Let's start from Les Copains, which mainly used black and white with a touch of colour. This brand tried to mix the classic elegant of tailleurs and mid lenght dresses with the modern and young shorts, crop tops,mini dresses and bows. I loved the almost knee high sandals. Elegant but at the same time so new with the cute bow on the side.
Gucci for its RTW was inspired from the classic of the 70's with these glasses with big frame, the snake leather handbags, headbands and little cute scarves on the neck.
The twines of the bustieres and the prettiness of the skirts were amazing! This collection recalls the colours,shapes and atmosphere of summer and fall.
Fausto Puglisi opted for a stronger touch with big appliques on the dresses. bright colours, high belts and bold cowboy boots. Some fabrics had some greek mythes printed and this remind me some old Versace's collections.
Philipp Plein was brave and daring as always. His collection is always so rock and roll but this year he included some punk rock and classics too with the fluffy skirts and silk blazers. However leather, studs and heavy sparkling necklaces were the protagonists.
It's a perfect collection for young women, especially the striped sequin jumpsuit and the high sneakers which in my opinion are so fun.
Lots of flowers, light fabrics, delicate colours and impalpable white silk skirts. This collection was the glorification of a romantic summer in Versailles.
Dolce & Gabbana kept the inspiration of their previous collections: the 50's, Italy and Sicily. We can basically say that they were inspired by the dresses of our trendy grandmas.The thing that I loved the most are the writing "Italia is love" and "Bella Italia" on the blouses. Some dresses have the exact pattern of the mosaics of Ischia, Positano and Sorrento, others recall perfectly the summer in the south of Italy.
BTW, the models were required to take some selfies on the catwalk! ahah such a clever and funny idea!
I have to admit that the italian brands didn't disappointed me at all, in fact there were a lot of mix of cultures, of styles and colours, which to me is the essential in fashion. You can mix the classics and create new modern styles and it's amazing! Each old style can me reinterpreted and be seen as a new and innovative piece of fashion.
