Milan Fashion Week SS08 Wrapup III

Phew, I'm tired. I spent the whole day shopping on Michigan Avenue today and ended with a Ruth Chris' dinner -lots of fun! Anyways, last post about this round of Milan shows...

Gucci
For me, this season's Gucci was a mix of hits and misses. Some outfits were really sleek and gorgeous, while others were just terrible. If there is anything we should learn from this show, it is the makeup -Check out those very cool smokey eyes and shiny hair!

These are some cute, sexy daywear. This collection's main colours were white, black, bright pink and yellow.

Unfortunately, even sticking to such few colours didn't help save the unflattering shapes of these clothes. What is with all those checkers (middle photo?)

One thing one could count on modern Gucci for are cocktail/ formal dresses. Under Frida Giannini's hand, the dresses are usually very in-fashion, sexy and feminine.

This collection showed how the silhouette of the dress really makes or breaks the dress. I personally don't like this print a whole lot, especially where it's used for a huge, formal dress. But surprisingly, the print looks nice enough on the dress on Lily Donaldson (right.) Or it could simply be Lily Donaldson's amazing ability to make all dresses look gorgeous...

Fendi
I've said this so many times, but I'm still constantly impressed by how Karl Lagerfeld comes up with modern, in-style and relavent-to-the-brand designs.
Fendi continues with the block-colour accessories. (Fendi has some colour block clutches.)
OK, Fendi's not really my style but you can tell that if you saw these dresses in real life, you'll think they're really pretty and great for its clientel.
Dolce & Gabanna
I didn't like a lot of the beginning of the collection. But when the dresses started to come out, the artsy dresses totally captured my attention.
Sigh, just imagine going to a nice restuarant or classy cocktail in one of these gorgeous dresses... They're pretty, girly yet sexy and sophisticated.
The last few dresses are like the kind of dresses I would imagine on art school runways -they look like collages of material with paint splatters. Total eye-candy!
Keep checking into the online sites like style.com and elle.com for the new runway photos -it's Paris' round!

The left-most cocktail dress is fab-u-lous. With the exception of the pockets. That type of dress need to be sleek and chic, not sleek and bulky at the hips. Carry a purse for goodness sake.

Oh, Ruth's Chris is amazing. So jealous. LOL

I am definitely not up to date on the newest fashion, I simply wear what looks good, but lets be honest out of all of these outfits, how many people do you think would truly wear those? I think it would take a very special person to pull those types of designs off, and it would have to be a very special event to wear something of that taste.

Love how the Gucci chick in the pink skirt's blouse makes her upper half look pixellated. That's about as scandalous as Gucci gets this season, I guess! -the DCGF

i'm not sure what's going on with the gucc. i've been loving yellow, but somehow, it seemed to hit all the wrong notes in that show. (look how much fresher karl's yellow looks on stam.)

also, was it just me or did the last few dresses of dolce&gabbana seem more couture than rtw?

thanks for the awesome pics from milan! i agree with flashy shades- the yellow was a little off this season- but nonetheless gucci always seems to please. i saw on http://flypaper.bluefly.com/ the 'smoking' theme on the runway- thoughts?

I agree with what you said about Gucci. A lot of the patterns on the dresses looked horribly unflattering. Imagine what they would look like on someone who isn't 5'11 and 105 pounds. I do like the last strapless dress that Lily Donaldson had on. The fit looks flattering and the colors don't overpower the overall look. In the Fendi collection I really only liked the third dress in the first set. It looks timeless and the material looks fabulous. Dolce & Gabanna are indeed very artsy; I would never wear any of those pieces but they are fun to look at and are eye catching.

I really really like this collection!
My favourite was defiently the Gucci collection.



I know this is totally off the theme of this blog but...I've noticed alot of celebrity designers.
Pete Wentz for example with Clandestine Industires.
I'm only 13 so I find this brand really cool.
I hope you check out the site. His designs are really different.
