Milan Fashion Week: Review Ready-to-Wear Fall 2010

As I promised, here's my review about Milan Fashion Week. 


There's no other word that can describe Milan Fashion Week. Glamour, elegance,  sophistication, and perfection are not enough. Maybe breathtaking could be a better adjective but still, it's not what I'm looking for. If you don't believe me, look at it yourself.


Versace:
Donatella Versace switched from her pastel-colored dresses from her Spring 2010 collection to tailoring. The pachtwork pants and leather blazer gave a rock&roll spirit to the collection. The typical short and tight Versace dresses were still there, but this time the bodice was corseted with glossy fabrics making it look like armor. According to Style.com "Even in times when all the fashion chat is about calming down and pulling back, there's still plenty of room for designers whose natural instinct is to fly the opposite way."

Giorgio Armani:
Most of the garments in Giorgio Armani's collection had black velvet, so the stand out pieces were in color. One which I particularly  found breathtaking is a oversized green velvet coat (shown on the left hand side on the second row of this collage).  The needle-heeled stilettos and fringed berets, which looked like dangling leaves, were intriguing. I'm looking forward to Armani's Fall Haute Couture collection.

Prada:


"It's normal clothes, classics. Revising things I did in the nineties" said Miucci Prada backstage (source: style.com)
Since black was everywhere among 50s and 60s inspired dresses, the tweedy knee-length socks, pointed high heels, and futuristic were certainly eye catching.

After her show, Frida Giannini said "I've grown up. It's more mature clothes for more mature women, because that's what I am." The palette of neutral colors gave a more mature spirit to the collection but it still had some youth and said GUCCI. One of my favorite shows at MFW.

Dolce & Gabbana:



Dolce & Gabbana showed their classics, such as the men's tailored jacket fitted on the women's body and leopard print garments. A video behind the runway showed Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana in their ateliers, tailoring, sketching, and taking measurements with white coated women and men.  At the end of the show, an army of models wearing black tailored jackets came down the runway, leaving everyone breathless. In a video from Style.com Stefano Gabbana said " We make it again in a different way, and you fall in love again with Dolce & Gabbana:"

Roberto Cavalli:
Roberto Cavalli went for a rich-hippie look with multi layered pieces for Fall 2010. The collection had a vintage feeling which could be found in the use of studded leather, brocade, embroideries, and dévoré. Harem pants and military coats were among the stand out pieces.

So, what do you think of MFW? Did you love it as much as I do? Which were your favorites?
