Dual Personality

For the Milan Fashion week spring summer 2010 RTW, 4 brands caught my attention and exceeded my expectations: Armani, Fendi, Etro and Cavalli.

Emporio Armani and Fendi opted mostly for neutral tones and minimalist silhouettes synonymous to elegance. Etro and Just Cavalli’s collection is more free-spirited with an unusual mix of texture, patterns and colors.

2 looks that I really love but far so different from each other: Understated Elegance and Boho Chic. So, let’s start the show.

D & G Spring/Summer 2011

Dominico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection is relaxed, fresh, young and pretty. Bubble shorts, floral tops,  gingham head scraves paired with sky-high wedge espadrilles and over-sized canvas bag.

The collection reminded me of my house dresses and cabbage patch kid dolls more than Snow white and the seven dwarfs. The runway filled with fresh blossoms, ferns and ivy reminded me of mom’s pocket garden in the province, (the side of our house, passage from our lawn to the backyard) filled with roses, daisies and bougainvilleas.

Here are some of my picks from the collection

I love all these. Spring will be exciting!
