22.11.2011- Fashion Week Top Five: Milan SS12

Tuesday, 22 November 2011

I realise this post is very overdue by now, but what better way to brighten up a gloomy November evening than with a look back (or forward, depending on how you see things!) to the SS12 presentations from Milan:

Antonio Marras' collection incorporated a selection of stunning prints and androgynous touches such as turn down collars and oversized shirt dresses. Bold prints contrasted beautifully against plain fabric backgrounds, and loose fitting swing shapes sat alongside more classic hourglass silhouettes.
The Marco di Vincenzo presentation oozed Italian glamour- side swept hair, waspish waists and optical illusion style prints made this a Milan highlight for me. 

Moschino Cheap and Chic's presentation was a riot of colourful dresses, showcased against an equally vibrant market-style backdrop. Sea greens, mustard yellows and bold graphic prints made this collection a perfect vision of summer, and sat perfectly alongside softer, more feminine touches such as tiered ruffles and brocade details.
Versace. The definition of sun soaked Italian glamour. This collection instantly reminded me of the beach- seahorses, shells and mermaids came printed in an array of sorbet shades, and the signature gold studs featured throughout made this presentation unmistakably Donatella.

The looks showcased by the design team at Piazza Sempione were sophisticated and effortlessly chic. Layering, loose tailoring and a sprinkling of sequins combined with quirky floral patterns gave this collection a cool, modern and relaxed feel- perfect for the summer.

What did you think of the Milan SS12 presentations? Which shows were your favourites?
