SS 2012 Milan Fashion Week Highlights

It’s been one week after another fashionistas ! First we started out in New York, then we hopped across the pond to London for a posh viewing of new SS 2012 designs, and quickly move on to Milan to see our favorite Italian designers. So, here are a few highlights from SS 2012 fashion week in Milan. So much fashion so little time.

Team Pucci presented bohemian glamSS2012 collection complete with skin tight mini dresses with intricate figure flattering patterns, flowing maxi dresses with ascending hems and printed silk blouses. Above from left to right we see white tailored loose fitting slacks (Italian designers are known for their tailoring), next we see an extra flirty leg revealing floor length dress with contrasting prints that Pucci is known for. We also enjoyed seeing the statement jewelry and strappy sandals that we saw on the runway as well.

Jil Sander
Next the SS2012 Jil Sander collection was definitely one of our favorites to see. The looks were the most wearable of Milan fashion week. Simple prints, combinations, and layered dresses sum up the entire line. A variety of light blues, black and burgundy were the main colors. The blazers are the stand out pieces in the assortment of designer digs. We’re also a fan of the veiled headwear that added a bit of dramatic flair to the show.

Salvatore Ferragamo

Known for his elegant gowns, Ferragamo showcased some sexy gowns with bold colors and exotic patterns. Above we see a tasteful use of aqua and purple silk worked into a sweetheart neckline, twist front and high front slit gown. Next week see the sam deep purple with a single cross neck strap and oversized bow at the waist and of course this Ferragamo look is not complete without a high side slit. Last we see a safari print mashup of red orange, hot pink and gold hues, belted in a halter top dress design.

Just Cavalli
As most designers tired to do, Just Cavalli had at least one show stopping maxi dress. We enjoyed seeing the rope neck and rope tied belted accents on the above animal print dress. Then getting back to the Italian tailoring that we look forward to seeing at Milan fashion shows, Just Cavalli SS 2012 did some stitching on leather pants that was a bit innovative and the textured blazers were a refreshing alternative to the safe and simple black. We’re not too sure how wearable the gold skinny pants are, but were sure some fashion divas will try to rock them anyway. We appreciate the glam rock mash up from the Just Cavalli team.
