Milan Fashion Week Run-down

Milan Fashion Week showcased a full dose of diversity from the Italian designers, yet what they all had in common were exciting, innovative, wearable collections for Spring 2011.  Bottega Veneta designer Tomas Maier sent his models down the runway with wet hair and uncomplicated garments that moved with ease and nonchalance that still looked luxe.

Daily Front Row describes the Spring 2011 collection of Salvatore Ferragamo as “a marriage that simultaneously blends bohemian and aristocratic backgrounds.”  Long, flowing dresses were mixed in with tailored shorts, blazers, and trench coats, and were accessorized with head scarves and long-strap handbags.

Lace was the main ingredient of Dolce & Gabbana’s charming spring creation, accompanied by white summer dresses, soft florals, and crystals.

The collection of Donatella Versace exhibited geometric garments and patterns of black, white, turquoise, and red in a manner than was more restrained than usual. 

Missoni stayed true to its signature lively patterns, and experimented with volume for tunics and bohemian skirts.

It seemed as though the American South was the main inspiration for Moschino this season, but the collection steered clear of looking costume-y from bright colors, tailored suits, and bold polka dots and stripes. 

Giorgio Armani’s collection was entirely navy and black and showed luxe gowns, tailored jackets, and flattering pants.

For his 40th anniversary of design, Roberto Cavalli steered clear from what many designers are doing: “I know that a lot of designers are doing minimalism these days,” he said to Daily Front Row. “But I say, who needs minimalism when you could have great sex?”  His collection included sheer gowns and lace-up pants that allowed skin to peek through, fringe detail, animal prints, and alligator jackets.
