MILAN FASHION WEEK
As we're coming to the closing of the Fashion Week’s month (have a look at our feeds on NYFW and LFW earlier this month), with Paris Fashion Week coming up on blingtalks next Friday, lets have a look at the most noteworthy looks and jewelry of the Milan’s Fashion Week.
From Moschino’s paper dolls to Art Deco graphics at Prada, fashion editor Jo Jones cherry picks her top ten moments from the Milan fashion week spring/sumer 2017 shows...
The collection was essentially about a look: baroque leg-of-mutton top over baggy jeans, which was clearly a nod to Anna Wintour's first cover for American Vogue back in 1989: Lacroix top and Canal Street jeans... Repetitive? Yes, but who doesn't love a collection that reminds of that glam rock superstars: glitters, jeans, leather, big statement jewelry and patches!!!
It’s hard to believe the Alessandro Michele era began less than two years ago, so completely has he turned around Gucci’s fortunes... For Spring he’s doubled (tripled? quadrupled?) down on his vintage-loving eccentricities.
Dresses were layered under knitwear, flares teamed with check jackets, delicate chiffon dresses scattered with sparkle, mash-ups of print, sequins, print T-shirts and floral ruched taffeta cocktail dresses. To top all this off each look had at least a bowed turban, crystal encrusted glasses or gigantic chandelier like earrings.
| Or as he described it: “Non-linear and unpredictable connections.”
More is more continues as the Gucci mantra. Jewelry included... Don't be afraid to follow the trend by wearing statement pieces of the same collection.
Marni’s collection is one of the examples of how great plain looks could be. We have already seen plenty of white on white designs these past few fashion weeks, but Marni has taken it to a whole new level, by adding details like shoulder bags, shoes, backpacks, and even white jewelry. Marni also was one of those designers who created looks that were simple yet complicated, with plain colors and wrapped silhouettes.
Add some colour to your white canvas, with jewelry that combine white and colourful Swarovski crystals...
Dolce is Dolce. For the next Spring season, Dolce and Gabanna created vibrant, bold looks combining lightweight silk and heavy fabrics, wide shoulders, and big complicated prints, bright, colourful details and the most beautiful flower embellishments. Our favorites were cropped jackets with epaulets and golden detailing.
Pure fashion, art, glamour, and edginess. There is also this type of femininity that you can get with our exclusive collections at blingsense. This pure beauty and effortlessness that makes you feel Italian... Big jewellery mixed with traditional items is the key for the season!
Trussardi’s new collection for Spring 2017 is unique and intriguing: the designer has used the richest colors to created the most versatile pieces in classic silhouettes. A lot of metallics, purple, pink and mustard colors are mixed in the collection.
Ideal for mix&match with earthy tones and neutral bling! Or as per Trussardi’s catwalk... bold gold chokers! Ace!
In a collection that reflected the designer's crafty, decorative code, the floaty knotted numbers stole the show. This season, Antonio Marras went to Africa for inspiration. It was not the codified Africa one would expect in this moment of widespread exoticism, however.
The big hoop earrings, stole the show jewelry-wise...
This season, Miuccia Prada explained that it was a collection of pieces women want to wear. Uncomplicated and desirable. This was indeed true, from the trench coats to the Art Deco graphic printed bomber jackets through to the opening minimal black kilt worn with a simple tank T-shirt.
What we like about Prada's catwalk was the absence of "heavy jewelry". The outfits appeal to busy women, that are going places, doing things. The women, blingsense is getting inspiration from...
“I wanted to keep it simple,” said Mrs Prada backstage. “I was trying to find a new elegance — an old fashioned word — and make it meaningful in the present. I wanted the clothes to be personal, that they should feel intimate, seasonal, contemporary and real.”
For spring/summer Scott for Moschino took the idea of the paper dressing-up doll with her interchangeable wardrobe, complete with attachable tabs. 3D prints gave the illusion of draping, swimsuits imitated bikini’s, and printed cut-off shorts came with fishnet tights. Maybe 2D printed outfits that create the illusion of 3D are a flattering way forward…
We love the vintage jewelry that bring back a scent of glamorous old-fashion brusque. Discover your inner pin-up with the right pieces!
Till next Friday...
