Giorgio Armani Leaves a Lasting Memory at Milan Fashion Week

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.

A Candy Coated Gucci Fall 2014

Ever since Pre-Fall 2014, Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini, has been a more simple route with her collections, leaving just as much a memorable statement as Marc Jacobs’ last Louis Vuitton show back in March. Kicking off Milan Fashion Week, every single a-list model that didn’t seem to make an appearance at New York Fashion Week, (think on the list of: Sigrid Agren, Anja Rubik, Kasia Struss, and Daria Strokous), stormed down the white-out Gucci catwalk, in a candy coated ensemble, and Equestrian boots in a light brown neutral, or Snakeskinned. As trenchcoats and outerwear seem to be the big thing at New York and London Fashion Weeks, they also seemed to make camo at Gucci, in militaristic inspired silohouettes and of course, fur. While outerwear, animal prints, and pastels may seem to be the big thing at Gucci, for the evening wear, Giannini sends out an array of leather cocktail dresses, plastered in silver, metallic chains. Definately the perfect collection for some Simplicity and Classic staples, with a bit of that bold, edgy twist; Purely Chic. A very Mod feel, overall.

Fuzziness Fury

“The show must go on!” The memo today at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, after like 3 billion feet of snow touched down at New York City last night. In honor of the most recent blizzards and chills, pretty much all across the East coast and in the Midwest, (Chicago is now colder than both the North Pole and Antarctica); Calvin Klein Creative Director, Francisco Costa, brings us with a capsule collection filled with all things fuzzy. As skirts and dresses become knitted. A trench coat and boots get embellished with calf skin. In shades of: black, white, and grey throughout the beginning of the collection. While the end mainly focuses on a more artistic like approach. Adding elements of tweed, and many rich and bright hues knitted together, very similar to that same artistic feel seen at Calvin Klein’s Spring collection, back in September. Fashion Blogger, Byran Boy may just be right when it comes to the best hue in the collection: a rich Olive. So whatever Winter chill may be on it’s way, for next Fall, at least Francisco Costa has provided us with the knits and tweeds to keep us perfectly warm, in a fuzziness fury.

Celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and Anna Wintour front row, a garden like scenery, and Supermodel Stella Tennant making a runway appearance; you know that this is a coveted show. After many seasons of a coveted Hugo Boss show at Berlin Fashion Week, Jason Wu takes the helm at Hugo Boss, moving the Berlin venue, all the way across the Atlantic to New York City. Wu’s first collection at Hugo Boss was most definately not a slip; as there seemed to be this such sleek, Chic polish throughout the collection. As the looks in the collection are very wearable, extremely well-tailored, and not too Preppy to the extreme.
