One would think we’ve experienced a fashion overload with the plethora of fashion shows this past month. This is not the case. Tomas Maier for Bottega Veneta, Peter Dundas for Emilio Pucci and Jil Sanders for Jil Sanders have certainly left the public amazed by their Spring 2014 collections at Milan Fashion Week.
Colors, embellishments and the now staple classic black-and-white were seen on the designers’ gowns plus a luxurious revamp of athletic wear made the collections just perfect for every occasion.
Each collection was distinctive and true to the brand. Each of them offered a different view for what we could expect for spring next year.
Bottega Veneta collection was full of simple flat colors, but with lots of reworked materials giving texture and volume, almost making it hard to even think about prints and contrasts. Their only colors were black, white and olive green.
Emilio Pucci, on the other hand, went completely opposite from Veneta, and showed quite an amount of royal-like embellishments, mixing sexy with sporty and creating such a chic vibe that it makes us feel we really want to hit the gym on this! Or better, we want to wear these athletic pieces to a night out! Other references on this collection are tribal motifs, hip-hop street wear style and ‘80s.
Designer Jil Sanders went half-way between the previous two designers, making every piece wearable for every women, from work woman to red carpet celebrity. The simplicity of colors made each outfit an easy-to-pull-off and even easy to combine each piece with other garments from the same collection. The whole resort had a minimalist theme, and that’s what makes it grand in reality.
We loved Milan Fashion Week, but we just couldn’t resist the temptation of highlighting the most buzzed runway shows.
