MFW AW17

Continuing from my NYFW show highlights, it’s time to delve into the heart of Italian fashion at Milan Fashion Week. MFW is definitely my favourite week of fashion month because it hosts my favourite designer house – Dolce and Gabbana! See my best bits below..

Gucci Gucci baby oh ma werddddd can’t deal at all with all 120 looks that Alessandro Michele delivered. Both male and female models debuted the collection as Michele claims he finds it easier to consider a collection when both sexes are together. There is so much going on in this collection but i’m 100% here for it. The British aristocracy feel, met with 80s prom. These designs are destined for red carpets and we actually saw the purple floor length satin gown featured on Dakota Johnson at last nights Oscars (albeit in gold)…here are a few of my faves!

I love everything about this collection from the suspenders to the usual Puglisi sunbursts stitched on erratically wherever they sit best. The feathers, the frills, the button downs all make this collection what it is. The words “We are not at all like you,” flashed on a screen before the models took to the runway and it was the perfect start the the perfect sassy collection in my opinion.

screen-shot-2017-02-28-at-15-26-32Alberta Ferretti’s show kicked off MFW with a bang. The red carpet favourite designer began the collection with frills and floats which delivered an airy grace. Towards the end of the collection darker prints and richer materials came out to play as the models were cloaked in deep velvets giving a very fantasy based feel.

The big talk of the Francesco Scognamiglio show was whether he was going to make the leap into Cavalli. This show only fuelled the fires of that rumour even further with it’s sexualised styling and fruitful butterfly print. One of my favourite favourite dresses I’ve seen this season appears in this collection – the nude satin mini dress skilfully modeled by Cong He. The ruffled neck and structured fit are the things my dreams are made of. The garish frills of the underskirt and cuffs are everything!

Karl Lagerfeld declared that he was ‘not in the mood for fairytales’ when unraveling this collection. It became quickly apparent that the collection was a mature, and somewhat formal one. The formality was broken down with the delicious thigh-high boots which were described as ‘sealing-wax red’ by Amanda Harlech. I really enjoy this contradiction and it’s definitely a trend to take up later this year.

‘carboard couture’ – it was certainly a bold move even for the likes of Jeremy Scott. There were only a few things I enjoyed about this collection and mostly they were the beauty looks worn by the models. I also enjoyed the 50’s style accessories. The striking colours of the middle section of the collection were created with pages of old vogue magazines featuring early Moschino articles. If anything good comes from this collection it’s that the lack of recycling will certainly catch up with us and our planet.

screen-shot-2017-02-28-at-15-23-38When people ask who my favourite fashion haus is, this collection is EXACTLY WHY I will always and forever answer Dolce & Gabbana. I am never let down by them and especially not this season. Over 140 looks consisting of models of all races, sizes, heights and ages. Every single family dynamic you can think of walked as part of the show; The cool aunt, the subdued sister, teen queen, prom queen, mom queen, grandma queen, sultry brother, gay brother, DILF’ing dads, cool AF brother/sister combos, EVERYONE you could possible think of! The message behind the collection – ‘You need to accept yourself as you are. That’s it!’ All I want is the entire collection immediately thankyou thankyou for bringing this to life Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana. Thankyou.

UGH Max Mara just made me fall in love with camel all over. The richness of those neutral hues gives such a warmth that makes the entire idea of an all camel outfit absolutely appealable. A trend that definately took a dip post ‘camel trench coat’ trend. It’s potentially one of the best looks I’ve seen Elsa Hosk in this season & the burnt orange eyeshadow makes the outfit pop. The mix of heavy wool, velvet and wool add different dimensions to each look yet they are kept simple with one colour blocking. The all red, and all black looks have similarly striking effects & I’m here for it all!
