For me, I can’t believe that Milan Fashion Week is coming to an end!!!! It feels like yesterday that models like: Katya Riabinkina, Yumi Lambert, and Marine Deeluw’s Instagrams were filled with pictures from castings, a week prior to New York Fashion Week. As we all say good bye to Milan Fashion Week, and pack our bags for Paris; Giorgio Armani leaves us with another stellar collection. Infusing lime into Classic Staples, we are left with a collection that’s perfectly futuristic, yet Classy and polished. And those wet like curls, also give the collection that extra modern zest. So as we may be saying farewell to Milan, Giorgio Armani infuses our minds with a lasting Fall collection, just as our favorite models, editiors, and bloggers hop on a plane, train, or bus to Paris.
Taking inspiration from Indian Sarongs, Volcano inspired prints, the Sea, Flowers, and even Japanese Pop Songs. Angela Missoni incorporated many colors and patterns into her collection. Making it very vibrant, and filled with tons of character.
And what would make a Missoni collection a Missoni collection without an endless number of Beautiful prints?
The first few looks bring a very Grecian vibe, with the one shoulder dresses in Neutral hues of tan and grey. The ruffles give the gowns a more modern, playful vibe.
Bottega Veneta‘s Spring 2014 collection was very Sophisticated and Playful. Bottega Veneta’s Tomas Maier showed off many very Sophisticated and Classy vibes, with Monochromatic dresses in Rich shades of: Black, Navy, Emerald, Purple, Grey, Oxblood, and a Persimmon. The ways Maier played with the ruffles, fringe, and Sparkle really left a Playful vibe.
Each look in the collection was paired with a really Classy pointed-toe pump, in a Rich hue, matching the look. Giving each look instant Sophistication and Class.

Alberta Ferretti gives the Russian fashion staples her own Glamourous and Modern zest for Spring. Using many shades of pink, white, black, orange, and red. Staples so far at Milan Fashion Week. Ferretti includes many Beautiful floral prints and many Gorgeous sheer fabric dresses. Definitely the perfect wardrobe for any summer day.
Ferretti’s collection ends with many Beautiful evening gowns, each with many flowers sewn. And each paired with Gorgeous long, dangling earrings sported by each of the models. Now I can’t wait for Cannes!

I’ve always loved the such timeless Class and Femininity with a modern British Girl twist that Christopher Bailey has really brought to the House of Burberry Prorsum. His Spring 2014 collection has definitely brought that Class and Feminity, with such Beautiful Glamour and Romance, as the collection starts with an array of all Sweet Things: Lace and Pastels.
In the middle of the show, Bailey sends models out in cute, very British Girl ensembles of stripes and polka dots, such a fun and Sweet way to incorporate prints, while still having effortless Class.
I see a little bit of a 40s inspired Sillohettes towards the end of the collection with many of the Beautiful tan and pastel shaded trenches belted Glamorously at the waist.
And then the finale came about, raining Cherry Blossom petals as the models made their way down the runway; then in a Cherry Blossom plastered runway, Christopher Bailey took his bow, then exiting the runway. For the most Classy and Feminine show I’ve so far this Spring season.
