MFW: Versace and Etro Spring 2012
Let's start with Versace. I'm excited for this because I think it's part of my anticipation for their collaboration with H&M which is going to be in store very soon. And it turns out that for Spring 2012, there are lots of blue-ish pastel color palette incorporated along whites and blacks throughout the collection. Here are the evening gowns accented with starfishes and corals which I found very appealing. Classic Donatella, lots of sparkle.
The most powerful pieces in both Versace and Etro are to me, no other than the dresses. So let me talk about the dresses.
I know we all can totally picture Blake Lively wearing these to the red carpet.
Etro on the other hand, is presented with lots of bold and colorful prints. The silhouette is still the roaring 20s, still feminine, but rather edgy.
"So why is fashion suddenly schticking on the Great Gatsby and all that?" - Leitch.
Beautiful, aren't they? What's your favorite show of Milan Fashion Week. I hope you won't say Prada nor Fendi. Oh and I heard Jil Sander was great.
