Milan Fashion Week - Review Part I

I'm going to write the comments after the pictures. In that way you can make your own judgment before getting influenced.

Alberta Ferretti

Alberta Ferretti deserves a couple of large pictures. With lots of satin and chiffon, Alberta Ferretti is the ultimate place to go for lovely yet sophisticated dresses. The colors are mostly quiet, but the details just look amazing.

Marni


We can always count on Marni to wear vibrant outfits in the summer. In this season, Marni used highly saturated blue and lemon colors. The accesorries are still very Marnish and girls just love them. There is nothing new in this collection, but it is well made and it makes you look forward to the hot summer.

Prada


I know what you are going to ask. What's the point of dragging the luggage on the runway? "I wanted to go forward by trying to cancel out nostalgia. By canceling out the body," said Miuccia Prada. Does carrying luggage mean leaving for the future? The whole point of nice clothes is to enhance the body not to cancel out the body. Hello! The only legitimate reason of carrying bags in that way is to train the triceps instead of the biceps or the bags are too heavy. Is that what you are trying to do, Miuccia?

I have to admit that there are a few nice pieces though. The outfits shown in the second group remind me Prada's FW '04 collection. That collection is my favorite Prada collection so far, and I am glad that she is making more of the gorgeous skirts. (Although some might argue that she lost the creativity.)

How do you like those collections?

The Alberta Ferretti collection is fabulous! The 3rd and the red dresses are very pretty.

Great blog you've got here! =)

Hello! I also adore Alferta Ferretti show! Everything about it! And I really don't know what should I think about Prada... What about Marni? Of course, I like it, but it's quite boring. I love your blog very much! Have a nice day!

Thanks min! I also realized how well they designed the stage when I edited the pictures. They are very "picture friendly". The color of the background just make the whole collection stronger. The red dress looks fabulous!I want to own it!

Hi Amelia, my friend in Poland! Alberta's show is so beautiful. Did you watch the vedio on style.com? She was talking about the new design process she used for this collection, and the result is amazing!
I like the Marni show in general, although you are right that they offered nothing new. I wish they were a little more adventurous. Their cut is always too loose on me, so I guess that I am more generous on the collections that I can't wear:-p
Thanks for your comments again. Have a nice weekend!

Thanks floatinglili! I like the bag as well although I hate the way they carried the bags! Do you like the skirt in the same picture? That's my favorite in the entire show ;-)
