Day 1 - Milan Fashion Week S/S 2014

Milan turned up the HEAT for Fashion Week! The models for DSquared2 came out struttin'! HaHa I don't know if I should listen to 'Welcome to the Jungle', watch the 'The Lion King' or book a trip to The Serengeti. Day 1 was all about animal prints, butterflies and flowers. Designer's for Fay even made Snoopy look fashionable. I don't know about Gucci you guys. I only liked one item out of the entire collection. Maybe I'm the only one, but I couldn't get with it. It's not the Gucci I'm use to. Below are my favorites. My ABSOLUTE favorite was Alberta Ferretti! Her collection was gorgeous. I'm going to eat some animal crackers and concentrate on Day 2. What did you think about the 1st day of Milan Fashion Week?


Angelo Marani

Alberta Ferretti

Luisa Beccaria


I bet you a MILLION monopoly dollars ;) we will see that rainbow snoopy sweater 
on some young actress/entertainer (hopefully NOT Miley LOL) in some magazine!

Ironically Gucci was the ONE show I saw from MFW before I read your post! Really liked the dark, loose glamour at Gucci!

I'm with you one Alberta's collection. You know, at Cipriani's they had a small gown display in the window of the hotel reception. Nearly snapped it but didn't, should have for you! X

Hi Kim! I get your point, is the same I also thought looking at the Gucci show, though I like it but wasnt as the brand was used to do before. Btw, agree with your fav, Alberta Ferretti collection is dreamy, love the second total black look, to die for! Also I like Angelo Marani and Fay! Have a good day dear and enjoy the second day of the MFW! Kisses! xo

I always watch Milan Fashion Week just to see what Luisa Beccaria and Alberta Ferretti with come up with - and they did not disappoint this year! I have to admit, Luisa Beccaria is always my favourite by a mile... those delicate fabrics and ethereal blue shades stole my heart... but Alberta Ferretti's collection is gorgeous, too!
