models on the streets

Models are constantly influenced by what is happening in the fashion industry: new trends, new looks, new designers. Models also have their own "models'" style:) See yourself:


i hate seeing socks with shoes, but this deserves some attention!

Milano Fashion Week Review P.2

Gucci didn’t set any big trends but clearly said that colour is the key. The collection turned out to be very chic and expensive looking, modern, cool shapes, and camel and black coming in from fall winter and bright colours to celebrate spring-summer season. We can see fringe and beading again, and a number of sillouhetes got menswear tailoring. Models: Hair back, fresh face, red lips, definitely very sophisticated and clean look. Loving golden belts.

Fendi: ‘not so safe’ this season playing with shapes and volumes. Orange in the clothes is the new black, and orange on the lips is the new nude, seen on the models, again! Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi yet again created a gorgeous collection. A bit casual, but so elegant that you can take on different levels and play with to create new looks for yourself.
D&G. This season it looks like their woman goes to work in a country and them comes back to a big city ready to rock it! We can see platforms instead of high heels; well that is definitely comfort plus luxury, and some beautiful details in flowers on those shoes. Flowers are also present through the entire collection, which makes you feel like you are in the garden and beautiful flowers are moving around you while you are just standing there so full of emotions but unable to move. Even the runway was decorated with a lot of flowers to get the garden vibe going.

Another one of Dolce and Gabanna was shown in the last days of Milano Fashion Week. Here the greatest Italian duo showed off a lot of lace, sheer white garments, florals and leopard prints. The collection is very feminine, girly and laid back.

Although I am usually not a fan of Moschino, this time I think it requires some attention. The collection is very interesting inspired by the West and the country, lots of white, black and red with polka dots and stripes. Really fun but surprisingly wearable. Not sure if I like it or if it will be liked by many people as it comes across a bit too costumy, but it is interesting enough.

Etro got a beautiful collection, resort like with nice calm colours and tribal prints. I am loving their t-shirts with bare shoulders and dresses that connect neck with the top part through the diagonal line. The collection is really cohesive, glamorous and easy to wear.

Gianfranco Ferre’s woman this season is very chic, alluring and ready to rock any city at night. There is a lot of options from evening gowns, fitted pants, light jackets and flirty miniskirts.

Milano Fashion Week Review P.1

The shows I was really looking for this season are shown in Milano during the Milano Fashion Week:
Wow, Blumarine got a lot of print, really. That animal, leopard print is clearly the highlight of the collection. It appeared in different colours like blue, pink, beige through out the show, but it is way too much for me. Although the silhouettes of the pieces are gorgeous!

Emilio Pucci’s girl is a glamorous rock star in the season of spring/summer 2011. From fitted pants and flowy dresses to swimwear, all these in gorgeous prints in great colours! As accessories models are wearing bandanas and sunglasses. 

N° 21 by Alessandro Dell’Acqua: You look at ths collection and it gives you no emotions. Beautiful and everything seems to be so right, so in place, but nothing too exciting. Usually no criticism is bad, in this case ‘Well Done’. We can see the continuation of the need for long skirts, white colours, beautiful lines. Also loved the look of the models. Very laid back and fresh. This is exactly the situation when long hours are put into creation of a ‘nothing done, natural’ look.


Iceberg brought up a casual and relaxed collection with the hints of rock and roll to the ‘table’. Loved seeing new shapes and solutions in dresses, pants and shirts. Highlight: slits on the skirts ;)

Fellow Canadians, our loved ones DSquared2 showed a great collection, yet again!Models were wearing big ‘sun’ glasses, fedoras, flats and dressed in casual pieces, but looking very chic. Collection is most definitely inspired by strength, which resulted in masculine silhouettes, fedoras and wide pants. Very unexpected, given the fact that this duo usually comes up with sexy collections.

Roberto Cavalli, oh, thank you so much for having Natalia Vodyanova to open the show! Sexy sleek long and straight model’s hair complemented the use of long dark fringe in accessories and main pieces itself. Collection itself is interesting, with really calm colours such as pale lavender, beige and black of coarse, crystals, prints and fringe with long dresses, yet it is sexy thanks to low rise pants and fitted tops.

Alberta Ferretti: Once again, 70’s ARE back! Gorgeous gowns, big hats, lovely earth tones.
