Best of Milan

February 25, 2008

Collections that I like so far:

Jil Sander

The coats with the structural collars are the killer— wearing them is like wearing a piece of architectural art. I also like the fact that the coats are not as boring as the previous fall collection’s, there are more shapes and silhouettes this time. But I don’t understand why Sarah Mower of style.com doesn’t like Raf’s work.
For the latest fall 08′ she thinks that ”there are aspects of Simon’s work that need further refinement.”
For Spring/Summer 08: ”To be picky on the pragmatic front, though… there are difficulties.”
How did she manage to pick out all the little flaws out of a seemingly perfect collection that is of true Raf-Simons-for-Jil-Sander style?

Burberry Prorsum

The feathers and the flared pants are obviously similar to what he had done for the menswear but I still like them. Christopher is creative and every season he managed to put in a new vibe into the collection that appeals to wide range of customers/fans of the label. Genius.

Versace

I was quite shocked at how much I like the Versace pieces. The colours, the gowns and the shoes are simply amazing. Like what everyone else is saying, Donatella is definitely improving.

    I liked the Vesace collection too.It was modern and graphic keeping with Gianni’s codes.Loved the coats at Gucci inspite of the paisley print overdose.Burberry was very pleasing.I was intrigued by Prada’s fetischist trip.A lot of designers seemed obsessed with fur rugs.Does anyone know the song from the Burberry show?The 2nd one with ‘John Travolta’ and ‘Richard Burton’ in the lyrics.Thanks.

    I’ve really been starting to fall for Burberry lately. I especially loved the feathered dresses. I didn’t notice the shoes from Versace before, but I absolutely love them!
