Milan Fashion Week

On Wednesdays we wear Millenial Pink

On Wednesdays, we wear (Millenial) Pink … means something to a whole generation. I’ve noticed for the first time that I’m part of a different generation… movie wise. It happened when Jennifer, my assistant, told me that she hadn’t seen The Virgin Suicides. She was writing about the Piccione Piccione Spring Summer 2017 collection and the inspiration, the designer had…

Francesco Scognamiglio Monochrome

The color palette for the Francesco Scognamiglio Spring Summer 2017 collection was a bit cooler than one might typically expect. Blacks, whites, the occasional strawberry gold metallic and the ever elegant Willow China floral print in blue and white which served as the most spring-esque of the fabric selections. Keeping with this year’s trend, the designs were of a classically…

A dress full of stars

Kristina Ti dress Fall Winter 2016 2017  Gucci lace-up pom pom boots  Giancarlo Petriglia lipstick bag The second look for Fashion Week was also black. With a colorful Fall Winter 2017 collection at Kristian Ti I managed to pick the only black dress there was. Maybe it is because I haven’t figured out yet how to wear these Gucci lace…

San Andrès Milano Romantic Tale

Throughout fashion week I was privileged to witness many different shows by several different designers, each having their own personal flair; however, none stood out to me in quite the same way that the San Andrès Milano show did. It stood out to me because of how much love and how much of the actual designer was evident in each piece…

Falling in Love with COTE

The COTE fashion show was something quite different to behold during fashion week. Set in a grand hotel in Milan some were a bit confused at first and many did not enter the show initially thinking they were still in the process of setting up. That may be due to the fact that the scene for the show was set much…

Piccione Piccione Blossoming Girls

Piccione Piccione Spring Summer 2017 paints an epic tale of girls blossoming into women and societies need to preserve their youth, pulling a double reveal, of a woman trapped the guise of a little girl whose mask is really hiding a strong independent woman. The show is meant to give off the air of innocence untouchable, the view someone might…

Alcoolique metallics

Shirt and Skirt Alcoolique Fall Winter 2016 This is one of the looks from last Fashion Week in February when I was wearing Fall Winter 2016 collections or as my personal joke ‘The clothes of the future’. Now the future has caught up with me and this look is already in the stores. I’m going to do a mix of…

Menswear Spring Summer 2017

I never imagined what a menswear fashion show would be like. When thinking of fashion shows, the glitz and glamour of the famous women supermodels would always pop into my head. Little did I know menswear fashion week is just as important to the fashion industry. From the abstract collections to the classic pieces we know and love from our…

Alcoolique

If I were to go back in time and meet my teenage self in this dress, she would be surprised. I used to play sports both volleyball and basketball, wearing heels and dresses wasn’t part of me. When events like weddings required a dress I’d borrow one from my sister/mom/friend of whatever color and call it a day. I think I…

Poker Face by Constance C

Once you have in your wardrobe a little black dress, a little white dress and a summer flower dress we would have a complete wardrobe of dresses. But we never stop at number 3, or number 45 for that matter. The more dresses I wear the crazier the designs I pick become because shopping isn’t about the need to get…
