HAPPY 300th POST!!!! So glad it's dedicated to fashion. :)
Dolce&Gabbana! Oh! Whatever you design...I always love them! Today was full of black and gold and ever so Italian. Corsets! Capes! Laces! Details! Army of models! All these traditional Dolce&Gabbana elements come into one! Pretty much everyone else today fails after you see this collection...
Salvatore Ferragamo = lots of sophistication. I've always liked their power dressing. Idk what else to say..who doesn't love to wear sophisticated well-tailored clothes? They are extremely functional too!
Aquiliano.Rimondi - more baroque details seen in Italy! I'm loving them. :)
I love how I only picked out the blue outfits in this Missoni collection...I think these are mediocre Missoni to be honest. But, if I am really honest here, I should say that it's been mediocre Missoni for a while recently. Don't you agree?
Marni - pretty much the only things I love about this Marni collection is the color block combos (seen in example 1, also seen in the most recent Marni x H&M collection) and print matching outfits (seen in example 2.)
Trussardi's collection started out great with the sharply tailored menswear but the rest all kind of have some problems here and there. Like, the leather is too stiff looking in this one look. However, they are all small problems and many individual pieces are not bad at all, especially if you compare this with some of the more famous brands' (that are going downhill) showings today.
