Milan Fashion Week (Part II)

So I have to do Milan Fashion Week in a few parts because its too much to do under one post. Part II i'm gonna talk about Bottega Veneta. So far this is my favorite collection I've seen!

I love love love it, understated and luxurious, Tomas Maier has done a beautiful job on the collecetion with a subtle beige-through-rose palette. I wish I could put in all the looks at Bottega Veneta but if I put on too many pictures something goes wrong... sighh... well here are some of my favorites.... (oh and I also love the runway!)

Isn't it ultra-chic? Ciao bellas.

Milan Fashion Week (Part I)

As Milan Fashion Week 2007 is wrapping up, here are some of my favorite looks from the pret-a-porter (ready-to-wear) Spring 2007 collections.

Burberry Prorsum (weird, I thought they were showing in Paris Fashion Week)

I really liked Burberry's collection; the clothes changed from the start to the end. It began with some neutral shades and then later throughout the collection there was more color, but it was always soft and never too bright but with some metallics and shine here and there. I loved some of the male looks as well.

And then some pastelic colours are introduced...

Men's collection...

Sighh... wonder if the guys here would ever wear those two outfits! I love them! So preppy and chic but for the 2nd look I would swap the trendy silver shirt for a classic white one.

New York, New York!

I heart NY! Yes I do, love love love this city and as a way to salute New York (Thank you for Fashion Week 2007 New York!) here's one of my favorite blooming New York based designers and my favorite pieces from his recent collections.

1. 3.1 Phillip Lim

(i) Cropped Trench Style Jacket

Cute lilac cropped cotton trench style jacket with three quarter length sleeves and dark double-breasted buttons on front.

(ii) Cowl Neck Sweater Dress

Mostly you see sweater dresses being paired with tights and leggings, not that I mind that, but i love this look with loose pants. This looks very sophisticated and I've always loved sweaters.... and oh yay that's the Chloe Paddington Shopper! (see the post before this)

I'm in LOVE...

...with fall's hottest bags! They're super gorgeous and so chic... here are three of my favorite bags of fall... (Love love love the Marc Jacobs one... my favourite)

1. The Paddington Shopper by ChloeSuper sized padlock, distressed scrunchy leather, gold and silver hardware. Need I say more?

2. The Intrecciato Shopper by Bottega Veneta

Bottega Veneta actually do not name their bags; Intrecciato is the name given to the intricately hand woven leather.

3. The Stam by Marc Jacobs

Ahh last but not least, the Stam bag. I love this, named after Canadian model Jessica Stam and inspired by vintage handbags. Looks great with a knit polo or bubble skirt... wish I had one..

I probably could never afford them (they range from $1000 - $3000!), but oh isn't it nice to dream?
