Nevertheless, this was another day for Milan to continue to show off their marvelous talent and wonderful creativity.
Moschino showed naval inspired suits combined with coats, red and black dresses, teddy bears, tuxedo dresses, gold evening dresses and suits, captain hats, and more all thought by Rosella Jardini.
Bally gave mixtures of herringbone tweed, leather, beautiful wools, and dresses, all in addition to its 160th anniversary.
Antonio Marras dedicated his collection to his mother. And his mother was proud! A delightful collection, very Italian indeed. Lots of black, some red and cute dresses with some beautiful floral motifs.
Etro did nicely showing off pieces with prints that are uniquely Etro designed. It was very rich, indeed.
Blumarine was a bit of a surprise. No whimsy that they are known for. A lot of basics. Probably too many and some of them that were done in greys and blacks and were repeated in different bright colors and then there were some black lace numbers that came out. At that point I was bored. An editor said "What is going on?!".
There was a collection by Gabriele Colangelo that is a cornocopia for women at any age and are great for work and for evening. All created to put a smile on any woman's face. He did an amazing job.
Gianfranco Ferre designed by Tommaso Aquilino and Roberto Rimondi was a fine modern collection that captivated my interest. Coats and jackets had interesting double collars, suits and dresses were truly edgy and showed some of the Ferre spirit in the construction and detials of the designs. Amazing.
Donatella did a great job in showing some restraint, never losing the sexy glamour. Versace was beautifully done. There were pretty black dresses designs of bright colors, sexy coats, beautiful edgy short evening dresses and, of course, beautiful, sexy gowns that are great choices to wear to the Oscars.
So if you want to see more collections from Italy, stay tuned for more Milan.
