There were so many amazing shows from London and Milan fashion week, I wish I had the ability to share them all.
I rounded up a few photos from some of my favorite spring/summer ’17 collections, I hope you like them too!
London Fashion Week
Cimone is a new luxury womenswear brand, and this is their second collection presented. Designer Carli Pearson designed for various fashion labels including Stella McCartney, Alexander Wang and Emilio Pucci. I loved the bold and bright colors, especially that splatter paint set.
Barbara Casasola was another favorite of mine, with very modest proportions and trendy cuts.
Pringle of Scotland was a line I hadn’t heard of before, but they had some really cool pieces and unique dresses.
Roksanda had such warm tones (which are my favorite) on its runway with the coolest fabric. I’m not sure if that jacket is satin or silk, but I love the boldness of it.
A trend that I loved were these oversized sweaters with complimenting sleeves, although I would definitely roll up them up.
A trend that I did not like from London was the single earring look. I just don’t like how it throws off the symmetry.
Milan Fashion Week
My favorites from Milan were Etro, Jil Sanders, Gucci, Marni and Bottega Venetta.
At Etro, the palette screamed spring, with peach, sunny yellow and muted green tones complete with paisley print, but it was the simple black and white stripes that captured my attention from the runway. (Definitely going to be mixing my stripes like so to the bottom right corner.)
Marni had very vibrant colors in monochrome sets that I am still swooning over. I also really like the oversized pockets that were featured on a lot of the outfits. (like the pink one in the top right corner) It made the jackets double duty, having pockets the size of a purse sewn right on!
Gucci was very extreme, but soft lines and silhouettes drew me in. There were many different elements, the runway acting as a timeline for fashion, with some iconic looks from every decade. I also thought the menswear they presented was sharp.
Jil Sanders had 40s attire with elements from the 80s, like metallics and broad shouldered tops. I loved the color palette and lengths.
From Bottega Venetta were the coolest looking sportswear for men and women. Slowly but surely I’m starting to like the socks with heels look. Anyone else agree?
My favorite trend was of course all the sequins, even though sequins and sparkle are always trendy.
Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci
My least favorite trend were these pajama outfits. I’m not sure if they are meant to be loungewear or to the office, but I think its over kill for either situation.
