Milan Fashion Week: Spring 2013 (2)

Read this post listening to this:

MOSCHINO. 1960’s Revival. A runway show where you could easily imagine that in the croud was Mary Quant, Audrey Hepburn and Paco Rabanne. Mini skirts, op art and trompe l’oeil patterns hijack the show and complete the designer’s goal which was playful femininity.

EMILIO PUCCI. White breeze. A collection full of white pieces and sheer fabrics which reflect luxury and desire. Of course, prints could not be missing, as they are the house’s trademark, but this time they were influenced by the dragons of the Asian Mythology.

VERSACE. A goddess in intimates. Heeled gladiator sandals come along with tie-dyed silk dresses and “bling-bling” low waisted belts match sheer black lace creating the familiar Amazon-the beloved woman of Versace.

FENDI. Geometry. Structural forms, dazzling motifs and a colour palette between mustard, grey and black hijack the runway until the armor of sequins came out and “let there be light!”.
