2.Interesting reviews…

On Bottega Veneta:
“…Scan the section of flowy, crinkle-creased shirtdresses and goddess draping and you’d need a heart of stone not to think, There goes something gorgeous…”

On Burberry Prorsum:
“…the sexiest version of Burberry yet.”

On Prada:
” When Miuccia is fed up with being perverse in the anarchic-fierce way, she’ll change tack yet again and go against the grain by being so sweetly unchallenging you (almost) can’t recognize her. “

On Missoni:
“It’s just that… Missoni would do better to devise a more intimate way of showing them, rather than in a cavernous old-style Italian industry venue with raked seating, as they do. Which brings us back to the original observation.”

On Jil Sander:
“One: The crop of the jacket might work on a flat-chested beanpole model, but on a woman with a real-life bosom? Two: Those super-skinny pants are not the most forgiving when viewed from behind… his liking for hot pink, orange, and vivid royal blue seems unlikely to hit the spot at retail.”

On Alessandro Dell’Acqua:
“…fans are probably young enough to enjoy the revival—or simply to not give a damn.”

On Gianfranco Ferre:
“This is a collection in holding pattern, and a confused one at that. Ferré and his legacy deserve more.”

3.Under the magnifying glass…

I’m loving these studs ( or buttons?) at Burberry. They look really exquisite and it feels like wearing a prized coin collection. I think those belts are one of the must-haves for Spring.

Christopher Bailey must be thinking of loving couples when he designed these similar versions of the neon blue trenches for both menswear and womenswear.

These shoes are not made for walking. Did any model fell down during the Alessandro Dell’Acqua show?

Known for not putting any logos on their bags, this is Bottega Veneta’s updated version of the famous woven bags.

I was stunned to see the latest range of shoes from Prada. What’s your opinion?

And yeah, Agyness dyed her hair to black right before the Milan shows. She looks better in this, very edgy and as unique as ever.

4. News

“Swedish designer Lars Nilsson will succeed Gianfranco Ferré at the late designer’s house.” reported by WWD.
