Best of Milan Fashion Week AW14

Milan, Milan, Milan

Best Front Row:

Ok, so this might not be officially a front row.  Actually it’s not so I’m not going to even try to justify that, but come on Philipp Plein gave us a performance by Rita Ora (ok I know it’s starting to feel that it’s not possible to have a fashion month without Miss Ora making an appearance) and Naomi Campbell strutting her stuff.

Best Hair:

Jeremy Campbell for Moschino doing it only as he could was the saving grace of Milan fashion week.  I loved this show but I managed to tear my eyes off the visual explosion of commercial branding inspired outfits to the perfect pixie cut wigs.  I’m so having a ‘want to crop my hair’ moment and this added fuel to the fire.

Best Make-up:

Roberto Cavalli gave us some good old-fashioned smoke-eye, played down with a nude lip.  It was good to see a bit of eye attention on the catwalk, and some inspiration for those holiday season parties.

Best Shoes:

Totally fell in love with Marni’s metal and jewel encrusted offerings, I’m sure there will be a few DIY inspired posts popping up over the web inspired by these.

Best Bags:

One of my biggest regrets about from having visited Floreance, Italy is running out of time to go to the Savatorre Ferragamo museum and seeing the beautiful pieces that they sent down the runway got me kicking myself, again! But hey a great reason for another visit.

NOT  likely to wear to my local French Market:

I love Dolce & Gabbana and their artistry and storytelling that they portray with their clothing but this little number below…errrghhhh!  Although I do like the dress as an individual piece.

Best for the Party Season:

Blumarine got me thinking about capes for the festive season

Best Coat:

I will definitely be channeling this look from Max Mara with their hybrid coats of tweed, herringbone and tartan, I feel a trend alert coming on.

Most likely to wear in the South of France:

Port 1961 gave us enough classic pieces in noir to keep us stylish and warm.

Iceberg took the chill off (sorry couldn’t resist) with their offering of cosy knits.
