Milan Fashion Week Spring 2013 - Part 2

Milan Fashion Week
Spring/Summer 2013
Part Two

The second chapter in my Milan Fashion Week coverage. If you missed Part One, snap this. Click to enlarge the images.

The thrill of the carnival saturated the stage of Aquilando e Rimondi, where circus shades prevailed in electric blue, teal green, yellow, red and purple. Graphic geometrics were imprinted upon psychedelic jacquard dresses with layered peplums and balloon skirts. Checks, stripes & diamond patterns were all swirled into this vivid display of theatrics.

Luisa Beccaria
There are no better words to describe Luisa Beccaria's SS13 collection than utterly girly and supremely pretty. A Seventies Brazilian seaside affair was translated by the saccharine pink, blue, lilac and and white palette in floral curtain prints and an abundance of ruffles. The darling dresses were clinched in the waist by pink bow belts and styled with turbans.

Roberto Cavalli
Cavalli presented an alluring range of black and white streamlined ensembles, spiced with a splash of lime, acid yellow and orange. Sexy slip dresses, chicly tailored tuxedo coats and languid pajama suits in artsy prints were seen alongside slashed trousers and sheer beaded evening gowns with brazen bodice cut-outs.

Dolce & Gabbana
Sicilian street scenes in radiant shades coloured in the catwalk of Dolce & Gabbana. Blue, red, oranges & greens mingled together in bright beach striped & puppet-print dresses. Raffia made an unexpected appearance, woven into mini frocks, corsets and circles skirts. A scattering of jewels, brassiere tops and basket bags completed the very kitschy-cool collection.

Salvatore Ferragamo
Ferragamo's Spring range was a transition between seasons, equipped with a heavier dose of leather, over-the knee equestrian-type boots & strapping trench coats. The sharply cut riding jackets and well-tailored trousers were stippled with gold sequined skirts, vests and dresses.

Making voluminous waves with a play on proportions, Marni proffered contrast-coloured blocks and floral, frilled peplums, flaired leather tunics and knee-length skirts - all in the custom clean-cut and oversized silhouettes. The palette of red, khaki, forest green, mint and coral was anchored by midnight blue and the purest white.

Jil Sander
A monochromatic palette of burgundy, navy, black and white emphasized the pristinely cut shapes at Jil Sander's SS13 collection. Curvature and crisp elliptic lines were prominent with long-length coats, duo-tone dresses, tailored gilets, bell-shaped tops, metallic belted A-line skirts and slim-fit trousers. Modernity with a gracious elegance.

Emilio Pucci
For Spring 2013, Pucci drifts across Asian seas with dragon print dresses, quilted kimono jackets and mandarin collars. There was a lightness in the white-shaded silhouettes - diaphanous sequin-specked blouses, see-through chiffon paneled pants and sheer overlays on halter-neck evening gowns. Peter Dundas also threw a few bomber jackets and slouchy pajama suits into the oriental-inspired ring.

Which collection has had the most impact from the part two of Milan Fashion Week?
