Milan Spring/Summer 2006 Wrap Up I

MILAN has finally arrived. It is just too bad that Harrods Girl is going to miss gushing about her favourite fashion week because she doesn't have an internet connection in her new apartment yet. But I shall try my utmost to pay fitting tribute to the best of Milan despite my terribly busy first week of school. Ok, so lets start with the more "junior" brands.

Emporio Armani
There were a few random pieces, but overall I am loving this collection because everything is just so wearable! I definitely wouldn't mind owning a few of these pieces. In typical Armani fashion, it was sleek, chic and very elegant with a more street flair to it.

A prime example of the few random pieces I mentioned. The skirt is gorgeous and the sailor shirt matched with satin pants creates just the right degree of contrast to make it intriguing. But if they hadn't been on the same catwalk together I wouldn't have known they were from the same collection. As I said-random.

The others were much more coherant. Like here where similar types of materials are used to create contrast. And both are just beautiful. The very picture of a very chic young lady shopping the streets.

Here the aforementioned young ladies are ready for a night out about town.

The definition of Armani chic.

D&G
This collection is very pretty, feminine and romantic.While the color palette is all very innocent white and pale blue, the collection is most definitely not. It will take a very classy (and brave) girl indeed to wear them in public and not appear skanky.

But perhaps its all just for the catwalk. Maybe in reality one wears a slip underneath the white dress and that ripped bodice is detachable. That would make them really gorgeous!

Ditto for these two. Or am I just begin too conservative here?

Marni
Ok, so Marni is most definitely not a junior brand, I'm just putting it here. Anywho, this was a very typical Marni collection with big jackets cinched at the waist, loose dresses and boxy jackets.

These jackets are all very typically Marni, but what I'm LOVING most are those belts! Those belts are just amazing!

In fact, Consuelo Castiglioni is just a GENIUS at accessories! Ok maybe not perfectly displayed on these pictures since there's only one necklace, but if you look at the whole collection yourself you'll agree too.

And the bright vibrant colors and patterns used in this collection is just so refreshing after seeing so many nuetral palettes on the other catwalks.

The Armani and Marni collections are so lovely and classic-looking. It looks like mid-waist belts are going to be the "it" accessory for seasons to come...

So far, the Milan collection that took my breath away was Ferretti. Pure genius. Also Moschino. The others, not so amazing...

The D&G dresses are SO cute! Very I'm-hanging-out-at-my-parents'-country-estate-for-summer.
I definitely think they are meant to be worn with slip dresses, that or as a naughty girl-virgin Halloween costume.

The black Armani pant suit is also fab.

Ahh!!! I am so sad that I am missing my absolute FAV fashion week! I am loving all the fashion seen so far. Although fashion week is coming to haunt me now, because all the hotels in Paris are booked next week and my family is finding it hard to book rooms!

Anonymous: That's what my dad keeps telling me too! He says that if I don't get a high-end businessw-woman type of job, then I'll never get to wear these gorgeous clothes, like Armani and Prada!

You make me remember this old song.
Night in ulanbator.
This is my translated word of montrolian original song. I am chinese, english not enough. Please give me some advice. Thank you.
There is a place so far so far
There have the winds and the old grassland.
Proud mother looks so far so far
Dolce lover wispering with the smile
Night in Ulan Bator whisht so whisht
Songs light singing
Winds light blowing
Night in Ulan Bator whisht so whisht
The singers
Please not tearing.

There is a place so far so far
There have my heavy memory in the grassland.
We not worry everything.
We singing and drinking.
Night in Ulan Bator whisht so whisht
You are at my front
You are so far
Night in Ulan Bator whisht so whisht
The hearers
Please not tearing.
