The fourth day of Milan Fashion Week signals that it’s over half way through (and thus drawing rapidly to the end of Fashion Month). With things starting to feel a bit frantic, but with the end in sight, there was only really one collection who could sum it up…
It was one big party at Moschino – who is celebrating its 30th anniversary, and dedicated this collection to the founder, Franco Moschino, who died of AIDS in 1994. Each piece that came down the runway was all-too familiar, as each one was a re-imagined piece from Moschino’s huge back catalogue. The collection finished with a live performance of I Am What I Am from Gloria Gaynor.

It looked like a tin of Quality Street (which has cross-pollinated with a tropical garden) was coming down the catwalk at Aquilano.Rimondi. Designer duo Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi showed a sportier look than normal, with the overall theme being described as “nonconformist”. Think couture-like embellishments like jet-beads, petal adornments, sequins, stiff pleats and elaborate bows on the back. Other pieces had Paul Gauguin’s paintings of Polynesian women printed on them, the lower half of the silhouette body-forming and smooth (apart from the odd lampshade mini skirt), whilst the upper half bold and billowing.

I covet this Jil Sander coat! It looks nearly weightless, with a perfect fit across the shoulders and a sharp cut that speaks volumes of Sander’s designs (her third collection since taking back the reins from Raf Simons). I love this pale, pale pink colour. The single button fastening keeps it clean, and the long line is perfect for that switch from Autumn/Winter to Spring/Summer. I’m always partial to a wide, military-esque lapel as well. So when can I expect it to reach the highstreet then!?
Best Dressed on the FROW
You can only really wear Roberto Cavalli when you sit on the Roberto Cavalli front row! Actress Elizabeth Hurley sizzles in this RC bright blue dress, whilst the nude shoes lengthen the leg. Completely chic! I love the little clutch to finish it as well – and the loose hairdo makes something club-worthy, FROW-worthy. Top fashion points!
