MFW

Photo 26-09-15 06 38 27

 

Oh Milan… Italy… Rigatoni and ravioli. Sorry, I’m loosing it. It’s been a year ever since I’ve last been in Milan and needless to say for someone who used to go there all the time, it did feel so good finally coming back. When living in Switzerland, it used to take one train ride to be in the city of gelato and perfectly tasting espresso, not to mention the very heart of fashion and brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Armani, Cavalli or Versace… Ah Milan. Having an Italian best friend definitely also made me reconsider my love for Italy. I mean Fiona’s religion is pasta and good wine. Because of her, inside of me started to grow a new love for cheese and anything truffle. But enough for the food (you know I can keep talking about it for hours!), we are here to talk fashion.

Early 2015, we decided to skip February’s Milan fashion week. And it wasn’t really skipping it as much as it was that we actually couldn’t make it. We had just moved to the US and were settling down in Los Angeles which as you can imagine brought so much unexpected work. Plus some of our personal projects came along side, making it impossible for us to lose another precious week. Therefore, this September was the occasion to compensate. I’ve really missed Milan fashion week and the madness that goes around it. The people, the joy, the laughs and of course all the bold colors, prints and flamboyant dinner parties. MFW, I was so ready for you!

As we arrived with Cibelle and Fiona right after wrapping up London, it felt like a breath of fresh European air. Imagine, we had just spent so much time in America and London, which is after all also an english speaking city, that we almost forgot that there are other existing languages in this world. And I can tell you, when travelling to Italy, make sure one of your friends does speak a few words of Italian if you want to make sure your taxi brings you to the right place. Everyday, we were grateful for Fiona’s skills, so much that we practically let her do all the speaking when it came to restaurants, cars and even hotel receptions!

It was Cibelle’s first Milan fashion week and I was so excited for her to experience it and hear her talk about it. It ended up being more intensive than what we thought… After two cities already wrapped up, Milan came third. As you can imagine, our energy levels were not at their max. Though Fiona and I were already used to this lovely little circus, Cibelle unfortunately faced some back issues and had to back off the very first day of MFW. Imagine, running around all day with a backpack filled with photography material and having to twist your body in all sorts of different positions to get the right shot is not particularly healthy for your back. So there it was, the Fendi show was starting in one hour and we didn’t have a photographer. So what did we do? Fiona grabbed Cibelle’s camera and improvised herself as the photographer for the day. And guess what? She slayed it.

The whole experience was filled with little anecdotes like these. Unfortunate situations turned into challenges and then funny stories we would share with our friends because we all know that the fashion month can be a pain… But it’s still such an amazing one, and we love a little sweet torture. The collections this year in Milan have been surprising at times, fascinating at others, but the overall impression was a sort of distant observation of sophisticated, polished beauty. But not necessarily something new or something revolutionary. It’s not that we were disappointed but our hearts were not beating as fast and our eyes were getting as big. I had a few personal highlights though.

First of all, Gucci. Gu-cci! What an incredible collection. Alessandro Michele who took over from Frida Giannini early this year absolutely killed it, reinforcing the codes of the new aesthetic he had created for the house. See through, sheer materials, a mix of rainbow colors and patterns, déjà-vu surrealistic prints and retro glam, boho details all got together to create a completely remarkable SS16 collection. I was in awe. Then let’s talk about Versace who set the bar very high as well this year with a new show location and absolutely stunning production. The show was rhythm by a girl power anthem as the models strutted the runway with a firm, confident grin. The whole collection was about empowerment to create a military, sexy, playful look. An absolute blast.

As for my own personal looks, being in Italy usually always means for me playing and experimenting with colors. This season however, I decided to have a little bit of both. Edgier, darker looks and more playful ones with fun prints and crazy materials. My favorite look of the whole week was actually total black with just a red lip for color… A Versace sweater, skirt and boots and Fendi backpack for an overall comfortable yet strong look to run from one show to another. I couldn’t get over these high knee patent boots, there were seriously everything. Not only so comfortable but they made me feel like a comic book super hero, and that’s a big fashion goal. Another look that I really enjoyed wearing was my first one of the week, which I wore to attend the Fendi show. Very simple with a white top and bottom but all the detail is in the stunning Fendi feather jacket with it’s red, black and white stripes, tied to the waist and just casually sort of hanging there… Total love. And what about you guys? What was your favorite MFW moment? Share it with us bellow in the comment section ;) x

You put a huge smile on my face with your whole post. Ah the Italian food, I mean NYC is amazing, but I grew up in Germany which is closer to Italy and I can tell you how hard I miss it. But as you mentioned back to fashion: All of your outfits were amazing, perfect details and gorgeous bags and heels – as always. My favorite outfit is your yellow dress with the stunning black over the knee boots. Perfection.
Thanks for sharing all your personal thoughts about this MFW, it’s always a blast to read your articles. Enjoy NYC ;) xx

This is rather random, but you have fabulous eyebrows. And Italy sounds ah-mazing! You are looking beautiful as usual :)

Enjoy New York honey xoxo

Ah,that all black outfit with the long coat and the yellow dress one make my heart stop! Amazing!

Italian food is my weakness, especially cheese and pasta so you totally had my attention in the first few words, yum! I honestly loved all your looks this season. Your most colorful and playful looks ended up being the most fun and sophisticated and although I’m not a fan of patented boots, you really made it work! Your hair was also on point with each outfit too.

It’s hard to choose so I’ll say it’s a tie between your white jumpsuit with the textured jacket, yellow dress and the outfit with the Versace sweater (very preppy chic)! I can’t wait to see your next adventures now that the storms have calmed down! xo

Amazing picutures. Also love the outfits a lot!

I’m glad you stopped talking about food. I was starting to get hungry with all that talk about cheese haha It must have been so nice to be back! I hope Cibelle got better! It must be really intense. Especially to attend for the first time.

I loved this blog post. I love reading heartfelt blog posts from bloggers and this was definitely that. I loved all of your looks specially the one with the fend coat!!! It was just perfect, and really brought out your complexion. Love your blog, and how I can feel I am there reading this. I miss Milan so much. I lived there for a whole year studying fashion in Istituto Marangoni and I would give anything to go back! I remember fashion week time, it was crazy crowded and filled with fashion and colours and different styles. It just really reassures your love of fashion.

Your writings your style your blog ,everything is just perfect .

La veste Fendi à rayures est très chouette, la tenue originale avec le pantalon bleu éléctrique et le haut blanc (mais c’est une combi on dirait?) j’aime bien, mais j’aime tout particulièrement la tenue la plus simple peut être, avec la veste bleu marine et beige et le pantalon camel.

Quand aux problèmes de dos avec le matériel de photo, on connaît ça lorsqu’on voyage et qu’on a l’appareil en bandoulière toute la journée… alors je n’imagine pas avec beaucoup plus de matériel à transporter …!

La avaricia natural del sistema financiero (que es, no lo olvidemos, su primordial lubricante) lleva a algunos bancos a prestar el dinero de los depositantes, a costes
muy altos, a quien tiene pocas garantías de devolverlo en el plazo y con el
interés previsto.

What’s up, every time i used to check blog posts here early in the break of day,
since i love to gain knowledge of more and more.
