This Milan Fashion Week, I found myself really liking a variety of collections, which is fairly unusual as I usually much prefer the Paris, London and New York shows. My favourite collections from Milan really encapsulated a sense of fun and femininity, which proved very refreshing:

D&G

 Love the garden prints, cute floral details and repeated use of layering throughout, very festival chic.

Jil Sander

Bold colours, tropical prints and experimentation with proportion made the Jil Sander show one of Milan's most memorable. 

Fendi

The Fendi collection featured delicate prints and had a very bohemian feel, with maxi skirts and batwing sleeves taking centre stage. The majority of looks showcased in this collection also appeared extremely wearable and easy to recreate on a smaller budget. 

Moschino Cheap and Chic

Yet another kooky and kitsch show from Moschino Cheap and Chic, where the midi length skirt remained a staple and eye-popping patterns were everywhere. 

MaxMara

A collection of beautifully cut pieces, with emphasis once again on the waist. City chic perfected.

Dolce and Gabbana

The Dolce and Gabbana collection is probably my pick of the Milan crop. Not only are the clothes absolutely beautiful in terms of design vision and detail on an individual level, but the collection as a whole was so cohesively presented and conceived that you really got a sense of Dolce and Gabbana's vision for SS11. Extensive use of lace and sheer fabrics gives the collection a really romantic feel, and there is a feel of antiquity to all of the pieces which I adore.

What did you think of Milan Fashion Week? Which of the shows were your favourites?
