Did London even happen? What a blur! We’re almost wrapping up Milan, but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention some of the amazing highlights that happened after my last London Fashion Week post. Here’s the short-and-sweet synopsis.
Burberry: All the buzz surrounding this show was solely focused on the shearling coats. But the thing that caught my eye were the thigh-high boots paired with military-sleek looks, like this little coat (I’m dying to find out if the bottom part zips off completely). Talk about sexy!
Erdem: I can’t decide if the eye-popping prints at Erdem more closely resemble a scene experienced while deep sea diving or looking at molecules through a microscope. In either instance, the view is pretty breathtaking, and that’s the case here. This dress is my favorite, but it’s impossible not to love the boots too!
Peter Pilotto: You need to know this name if you don’t already. Peter Pilotto and his partner Christopher De Vos have been carving out a niche for themselves with their photo-printed cocktail dresses and draped skirts. This season they tackled more daywear, and the result is a totally sleek, but playful look. I love their Braveheart-esque inspired top here.
Stay tuned for more from the Milan madness.
