MFW: Day One

Gucci, SS’14

So I’m a bit late on the Milan Fashion Week stuff (more busy weekends and #bigproject works! Again you’ll hear about it soon). But better late than never, right!? Milan is notorious for super-luxe brands who drown in opulence, and Day One promised no different. The likes of Gucci and Alberta Ferretti (the truly big-hitters) were interspersed with some of fashion up-and-coming greats – Angelo Marani and Fay (whose Snoopy prints I just died over). Paola Frani’s collection ticked all the new-trend boxes, including splashy florals, primary green and bright corals, and there was a definite sense of fun and spring in their step (geddit?)

Here’s what happened on Day One of MFW…

Best Show

DSquared2, Milan Fashion Week, Catwalk, Ready-two-wear, SS'14, FashionIt was another one of those shows where the fash-pack goes in to furore. DSquared2 are not new to the scene, but it feels like this collection really pushed them in to the foreground for me. Twins Dean and Dan Caten brought us a Fifties-inspired, sultry summer – tropical colours, slim dresses and swimsuits and huge hats for perfect poolside looks.

Wardrobe Wishlist

It was a simple palette at Luisa Beccaria – eggshell blue, coral and shimmering pale gold – with creations as much at home on the red carpet as on a hot summers’ day – I can see some of the full gowns appearing at awards ceremonies all over. This coral and lace dress is perfect with some tan wedges (try a pair similar to the ones on the catwalk for a bit of glamour) and little straw bag for summer evenings. Wear it in DSquared2 style with a wide-brimmed hat.

Suki Waterhouse

Best Dressed on the FROW

Doesn’t Suki Waterhouse look incredible in this graphic strapless dress!? She took the front row at DSquared2 on Day One of Milan Fashion Week sporting an incredible beehive ‘do – the Sixties eat your heart out! I love that she’s teamed the dress with a structured, patent black bag – the contrast makes a bold statement. I feel like she is a Bond girl ready to speed away in a posh car or boat in Monaco! So perfect for the front row in Milan.
