Milan Fashion Week: Gucci vs Fendi

It's really exciting to see how these collection overlaps. Somehow they are similar, but different at the same time. Look at how Frida and Karl made use of purple, turquoise, and orange. How can I not make a post of 'battle of the designers'?

Fendi combined casual and couture, centered around that fashion favorite, the shirtwaist. Gucci's creative director, Frida Giannini, said the clothes were designed for "modern amazons; an intellectual tribe of exotic women, seen through an urban lens."

Their bags are very different. Gucci goes for the exotic bags with edgy and exquisite detailing while Fendi is more playful. It looks like Gucci has won the bag, but Fendi goes with the best accessories. Look at the color combination of the bracelets and the watches. I feel like they are in harmony with the subtle yet lively energy of the bags.

Shoes are always a favorite. For me, its shoes over bags. Then again, I am pretty disappointed with both shoes collection. Gucci has always made the edgiest and statement making shoes for their runway, recall last years' Spring. Fendi has subsequently made the prettiest modern Cinderella shoes made of plexi glass and chiffon. Compared to that, Spring 2011 is more of an understatement from both.

So what do you guys think?

A must have , I would say is tassels belt. Look how beautifully it unites with camel harem pants.
