I just realized this is post #501. For my 500th post click here.
Dolce and Gabbana killed it yesterday with their amazing collection for A/W 2013~14 during Milan Fashion Week. My breath was literally taken away. This collection is very Brit," Stefano Gabbana said before the show began, leading me through a labyrinth of backlit mirrors where scores of models were being made up to look like Sophia Loren in her heyday, towards rails of lush tweeds and delicate lace. D&G drew inspiration from the Byzantine empire, beauties in bejeweled crowns and gold and turquoise mosaics."
The show opened with a series of dresses in mosaic patterned silk, dripping with encrusted jewels and at times depicting an iconic image of a saint.
Accessories included the models wearing a gilded crown, necklaces featuring a large Byzantine cross and heavy pendant earring.
Next followed a series of black silk dresses with lace.
Tweed pieces with fitted jackets and flared skirts. Hair pulled back in the style of Princess Grace.
My fave pieces:
The finale featured a series of Byzantine beauties in ruby.
Today was the final day of Milan Fashion Week A/W 2013~14. Giorgio Amani presented his collection. Armani called it ‘Garconne’ and reinterpreted his long-held fascination with masculine cuts for women – the idea being that pieces could be mixed according to attitude and mood.
Wispy overcoats worn over dresses
The collection featured double breasted jackets worn over flared pants.
