Milan Fashion week has inspired all fashion followers into the new trends for Spring/Summer next year, with an abundance of bold colours and prints reeling us in.
Yet to fail us with their designs, D&G wowed in bold printed silks and draping fabrics; a perfect mix for warm weather travelling in style. 70’s accesories were brought from s/s 11′ into s/s 12′ again, but with a more glamorous, exotic feel.
Marni decorated the catwalk with ice cream pastel hues in lose fitting fabrics, with contrasting strong prints. Consuela Castigliani’s collection exposed a 60s feel with collars, ankle socks and florals.
Missoni brought the colours of the sea to their s/s collection, with textured fabrics on flamenco skirts and sheer tops.
Alberta Ferretti’s designs sashayed out in mismatched prints and clashing colours of purples and reds, but the designs really worked and gave a fun take on summer style.
The 1920’s was encapsulated in the Gucci range of designs, with shimmering flapper dresses in monochrome, and tassled box clutches to compliment the glamorous designs. The other half of the collection portrayed a smarter feel, with black and gold double ankle strap heels against sheer blouses and tux trousers.
There was a futuristic feel at Emporio Armani’s classy robotic collection, which included diagonal fabric cuts, plastic heels, and without a colour to be seen. Armani’s range gave a grown up, sophisticated goth vibe to the catwalk.
Prada showed beautiful vintage styles, with 60s wallpaper prints and burlesque style kitten heels and sheer, lightweight long coats. Crop tops and pencil skirts in satin and silk finishes outshone the collection, and pleated knee-length skirts oozed glamour sex appeal teamed with sheer 3/4 sleeve blouses.
Overall I LOVE the new S/S 12′ collectiona that were shown at MFW , especially from my favourites; Prada and D&G. I reckon vintage will be a main trend from the 20’s through to the 70’s (which I admitt im still excited about!) I also think it would be wise to keep an eye out for sheer, luxe blouses for Spring and skimpy bustiers for next Summer.
