Day 2 - Milan Fashion Week S/S 2014

There was something to love from each collection on Day 2 of Milan Fashion Week, but I'll only list my favorites. Let's start with Prada! Their theme was street art, which reflected in their backdrop & designs. I must say, I didn't particularly care for the collection (covering my head). I had to look past the leg warmers and bra's-on-top-of-clothes to see if I liked anything. Prada is an over the top brand and requires a certain palette. I did like four pieces from the collection and included them below. For the record, I'm a minimalist, so I prefer (smaller extravagant accessories) Prada handbags, shoes, eyeglasses over their clothes. I did LOVE Fendi! Gorgeous geometric designs, colored metallics and beautiful color made up this collection. Max Mara also showed off some colorful monochromatic designs. Blugirl and Kate Spade must've collaborated with one another when designing their collections! They both had a LEMON, citrus color theme. It's a cute collection for young ladies. I wasn't impressed with Just Cavalli. A jacket here. A skirt there. It was flower-y and kind of skitter scatter. There were a couple of pieces I liked, so I hesitantly included them below. Honestly I was less than impressed with the collection. Just Cavalli always comes across cheap to me. My FAVORITE collections of the day were designers I never heard of before Anteprima, Daniela Gregis, and Ports. Each were minimalistic and simplistic (right up my alley). I felt these collections were DIVINE and would scoop them up in a minute. What are your thoughts?

  3. Hahaha I know what you mean with Prada. I sometimes really just don't "get" the outfits and clothes from the big name designers. But the accessories, now the accessories I can usually find something! :)

  7. P.S. I just noticed that if you looked at the Daniela Gregis collection from the bottom to the start, it almost looks like colour has been added over a time lapse, it's quite interesting. I like the all red dresses in that collection :)

  8. The Blugirl looks really appeal to me. They have that kind of sixties vibe.

  11. I love your honesty with the collections rather than the all out 'fab' views that some blogs share. For me Max Mara definitely caught my eye. I've been getting more and more drawn the brand of late with the classic shapes and clean lines.

  14. Hi Kim! I agree with your choices. Fendi suprised me this time (I didnt like the previously in particular): the new is bold and I like the lines. But my ever fav is Blugirl, to die for! I found it so romantic and feminine, the kind of clothes would love to wear right now. Also Anteprima, Ports and Max Mara are really beautiful. Happy Friday dear, kisses! xo

  19. Have never been a big fan of Just Cavalli either, as it always seem to me like a Versace clone.
    I do love the Prada collection, and the Ports one is also pretty nice.

  20. Another day of gorgeous shows! I've never heard of Anteprima but I'm definitely a fan now and Fendi never disappoints. Thanks for putting this together Kim! Happy weekend!

  22. Great round up Kim! I think the most wearable looks for me would be from AntePrima and Max Mara although I love the colors Fendi used!

  26. Thanks for the updates on MFW Kim! Loving Anteprima, Blugirl and Fendi here, not too sure how I feel about Prada yet, although I know no matter what, it will still be a trendsetting collection. Thanks for your kind words. Have a great weekend!

  27. When it comes to Milan Fashion Week, Max Mara is one of my great weaknesses. I love it for different reasons than I love Luisa Beccaria and Alberta Ferretti. The Max Mara designs are always so wearable and yet beautifully high fashion, I can't help but fall in love. And imagine all the ways I would wear them. They were my day two favourite, no doubt about it. As for Prada, as much as I absolutely admire Miuccia Prada as a person, as a woman and as a designer, her collections are never my favourite. Miu Miu, however, is a different story :)

  32. I loved Daniela Gregis too! I also agree on Prada and Cavalli: there's this Italian VIP who wears only Cavalli and I always think how cheap and mismatched her outfits are. On the other hand I like perfumes by Cavalli, especially Serpentine.

  33. Another look at these, I'd like the Anteprima line, I like all the black and then the metallic materials used in the skirts...I would buy those :)) well...if I was rich, haha ;)

  34. Prada and Fendi are my favourites. Miuccia Prada is one of my favourite designers.

  35. I like Fendi's quirkiness and colours! Of course, Prada's design is definitely outstanding. Blugirl's designs are fun and easy to accept on the street.
