Fashion Week, etc.
Free spirits roamed free on the Roberto Cavalli runway, with a hippie vibe spreading throughout. Think fringe, mixed prints and bell bottoms all meshed to form a perfect melange. Meanwhile, at Fendi, all things oversized, sheer and cropped hit the forefront. Oh, and stripes galore.
Missoni went for the leg on display option, with thigh-high minis and metallic knits all around. There were a few flowy printed maxi dresses, which gave off a serious vacation envy vibe too. Emilio Pucci started off with a lot of great solids and then went straight for their funky style prints with a bit of a retro twist.
Prada went the print mixing route with a great touch of serious feathers. There was a bit of an Asian influence in some of the apparel too, which was a nice surprise. It was all about the feathers flying in the wind though–on apparel and shoes alike. Dolce & Gabbana knows how to play the balance game, rolling out a nice mix of the totally wild and out there, along with the more simple and sophisticated lace looks.
Versace hit the sporty side and tapped into a different set of looks for the show. If you ever needed to leave the house in sweatpants, this would be the way to do it. Then there’s Moschino, who goes all out with no holding back. And with Jeremy Scott at the helm, we expect no less. There was a paper doll meets pin-up girl theme here, and we’re all about it.
