The 5 Best Things about Milan Women Fashion Week FW15 Give Me Five

fashion week are followed quickly one after the other. Now Milan is over. Here are our top 5 collections of the Milan fashion week just passed.

#1 Prada - Sweet & Sour

Far from absolute black, away from the "genderless fashion", Miuccia Prada, for next winter, plays with the concept of femininity, reconstructing disassembling its codes and clichès. Bows, decorations, soft colors through the filter of the iconoclastic and ironic designers become a celebration of the strength of the twelve-tone disorientation in fashion.

Prada fashion house remains a genetically modified towards the beautiful, for whom fashion is important because a visual narrative that requires thought.

#2 Marco de Vincenzo 

"I try to work on plain things, but I find them... Boring."The Roman designer admits. Everything has to be wearable yes, but without ever losing that something special that makes a leader.

Behind this thinking lies the love of totalizing de Vincenzo to detail, for details: the overlap of clothing and fabrics, profiles in contrasting tones, the play of textures, diamond patterns, color fringing hidden in the seams .

#3 N21 

Alessandro Dell'Acqua pays homage to "the romance of Alida Valli in Luchino Visconti's Senso and sportswear American-derived".

Her latest collection is a game of reinterpretations, overlaps and oxymorons, in which rigor and romance coexist. Poplin virginal is contaminated with the fur, tweed heads with jacquard effect gold lamÈ, satin with hoodie, diaphanous organza shades with cabans sports. Details, materials, volumes antithetical find a perfect balance, a magic mix of virtuosity and simplicity.

N21 mixes, layering, experiments in a continuous juxtaposition of creativity harmoniously conflicting.

"The groupie attitude" is not only a tribute to that intense period, but a trip dreamed of brocades, surrealist art, embroidery and folk magic.

#5 Gucci - Here is the revolution

Goodbye Frida , welcome Alessandro. The new director of Gucci distorts the codes of the maison to embrace a wrinkled, crooked and cheerfully eccentric style. This thinking is reflected in a series of dresses and look of which Wes Anderson could easily fall in love: pleated skirts, lace blouses, sweaters embroidered with flowers and birds, rumpled suit, berets and fur slippers.
