There are surprisingly quite a lot of wearable trends I spotted during the recent Milan Fashion Week Fall 2013, coming from the all-time favorites, Fendi, Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Emilio Pucci and Blumarine.
Fendi Fall 2013 was all about crazy fur, neon colors, extravagant stripes and funky mohawk. This collection is basically trying to show you fur like nothing you have seen before. I really want to get all of those furry bag charms! Apparently it's Karl's 96th collection for the house, but we are once again assured that nothing feels at least a little bit dated or boring.
Gucci Fall 2013 The Gucci woman next winter is a playful mixture of demure and daring. "She seduces with her dangerous femininity," writes creative director Frida Giannini in her show notes. There were sumptuous python skin textures, feathered embroidery, and re-imagined houndstooth print, all of which offered a visual twist on the overall demure and daring vibe.
Bottega Veneta Fall 2013 First of all, the 'Katherine Hepburn' make up was genius I would say. Perhaps the right tone has perfectly set by the waves, or the bold brows and strong lips to begin with. It was heavily inspired by the '40s femininity with bold shoulders on modest dresses cut to the knee; a rich red, brown, black, and golden-yellow palette; and lace-up oxford-style heels to complete the looks. I still can't get enough of how Tomas Maier continues to explore retro femininity so genuinely.
From the famous knot clutch to exotic ladylike bags Bottega Veneta is always the answer to everything understated elegant.
Emilio Pucci Fall 2013 Although for years, some people I know remained to think that Peter Dundas collection for Emilio Pucci is way too trashy-sexy, too pandering to celebrities and red carpet culture, and frankly not paying enough homage to the house of prints, I still love what he did this season with all the unapologetically sexy energy with a rock-and-roll edge.
Blumarine Fall 2013 Pastel colors came out to play at the Blumarine Fall 2013 runway show. Anna Molinari, known for her high note, shiny color-stories, chose to stay within its known minimalist style as most of the pieces maintained a monochromatic theme.
Powder blues and elegant peach hues were the colors of choice, which was seen on almost every one of extremely romantic number. The collection’s heels, with their center curvature completes the look and make me want every piece in my own closet.
It seems that yes the views of the parade was very pure and refined. Who wouldn't want to wear these for Fall?
