Miuccia Prada returned to flower and bird patterns, with sophisticated, glamourous 1940′s inspired silhouettes, triangle shoulder coats and slim pencilskirt dresses. Chosen colours were black with white collars and flower prints, rust-orange shades, fresh white, dove blue and mustard. I love Abbey Lee in that flower dress!!!
There is no Milano without Gucci! Frida Giannini created a beautiful, glamorous Seventies collection enriched by strong colours like smaragd green, deep blue, burgundy to rust shades and accents of mustard yellow. “I loved how she looked to the Seventies but not in the exaggerated way that everybody seems to,” said Calgary Avansino afterwards. “It was a genuine tribute to the best of that look.” The Gucci girls wore luxurious materials like shiny leathers, transparent dotted chiffons, flowing silks and bright coloured fur stoles as accessories.
Topshop Unique AW 2011 showed a fun but glamorous collection inspired by the jazz age and the movie “One Hundred and One Dalmatians”. Playful dot patterns and cute puppy intarsias were paired with sleek silhouettes and sophisticated looks like silky pyjama overalls, cute tea dresses, pencilskirts, playful patterned blouses and statement faux fur coats. One of my favourites is the burn out Brooklyn Bridge dress!
