As usual, Milan Fashion Week brought out that true Italian flare we all know, love and crave. Subdued pastels featured on structured pieces, bold neutrals and fiery colors, not to mention runways with metallics, MFW had it all. Sex appeal and sophistication were major in all the runway looks, leaving no room for leggings and “comfort wear”.
Black and white swept the runways, and Ferretti was no stranger to the theme. Though her collection did feature color, she started with a series of looks in only these bold neutrals, featuring soft dresses that produced a classy feel.
While Armani showed tailored pants and menswear-inspired clothing, he didn’t fail us. He had displayed his true strong point in figure-flattering eveningwear, a number of which had the ever-popular, plunging V-neck.
Polished, sophisticated, sexy and subtle. Sportmax created clean lines, but still combined texture and flirtatious, bouncy dresses for the simple woman wanting some luxury.
Possibly the most interesting collection during MFW, Versace designed completely latex dresses and certainly reflected the edgy party girl seen in Janet Jackson’s style.
