New York Fashion Week: my favourites

It was raining this morning in Milan, but if you are thinking that the summer is over, then you have to think again. In just a few days in fact the spring summer collections 2012 by the world’s most exciting designers will be presented on the city’s runways. Milan Fashion Week will start on Wednesday 21st September, and until the 27th the city will be sparkling with the presence of models, designers, and celebrities.

While London Fashion Week is still on, the show in New York closed few days ago. What did you think about it?

Victoria Beckham

I liked the very minimal yet feminine collection Victoria Beckham presented in NY, accessorized with beautiful Laboutin shoes especially made for her…this sandals up here are to die for, absolutely!

Carolina Herrera

I really love the way Carolina Herrera used geometrical motives in her collection also presented in New York. These ‘total white’ dresses are incredibly elegant, sophisticated and glamorous.

DKNY inspiration for the designs seen in NY has a tribal vibe. The colors she used for this collection are black, brown and ochre, mixed in graphic, bold prints, and used on shapes that are sinuous and feminine.

Tommy Hilfiger

Very colorful is the ‘pop and preppy’ collection for next summer by Hilfiger.

Marc Jacobs

Even Marc Jacobs collection was very colorful, still following the color block trend that has been so popular this year.

United Bamboo

Last but not least amongst this selection of designers, I really liked United Bamboo, with the minimal, fresh, but at the same time ‘très chic’ look of their collection. So…what are your favourites from NY Fashion Week? 

Our favourite spring summer 2011 fashion trends

Hello hello!

What a day…are you too surrounded by spring?

Among all the trends seen on the catwalks for this

coming season the one we like the most is the

tropical-inspired one.


 We love the gorgeous floreal prints in Mother Nature’s

 colours, won’t they make you feel like you are strolling

 on a sandy beach in an exotic paradise?

Trend no. 2 absolutely not to be missed: the maxi dresses.

Ok, this is not totally new, as we have seen the look one too many times before, but the spring summer 2011maxi dress is super sheer, super light, and super long…a bit ’70s in fact…

Yes! The ’70s are yet another strong inspiration

 for the summer, although it’s more of a sophisticated look than a funky ‘flower power’ one.

So kiss your old skinny jeans goodbye and start thinking

 about high waist wide-leg pants, really high platforms,and geometrical prints. Add to it long flowing hair and…

… here you go, you have the perfect look for the summer!
