As you already know, last month we went to London and Milan for fashion week! Well, fashion week is a big deal for many reasons. For some people, fashion week is a way to express themselves through their outfits. For others, is a time to admire designers work and art. For us, it was the biggest fashion experience we’ve ever had! As fashion bloggers we have always wanted to attend fashion week but it took a lot of hard work and time until we could finally go! We didn’t want to miss this opportunity so we decided to make it reality! We had a crazy schedule. We were running from meetings, to events and then to shows! The truth is that we had barely the time to change clothes and eat but every single day was an experience full of new images and emotions!
Fashion week is an inspiration on its own! We’ve met so many people and they all had their own story. Bloggers, writers, illustrators, photographers that were as crazy about fashion as we are and we had the most interesting conversations with them. It was also a great opportunity to meet with other people who were following us on social media as long we were waiting in line to get inside the shows!
Also, fashion week is the best way to find out which key trends and pieces are “in” next season! To go through the internet, the magazines and the social media is never enough! With all the designers showing their new collections, we sparked many new ideas and it inspired us to work harder!
We can’t show all the shows and the presentations we attended so we’re highlighting our favorites from London and Milan Fashion Week below.
MM6 Maison Margiela SS19
MM6 Maison Margiela was definitely one of our favorites! It was an urban streetwear collection inspired by the classic AIDES t-shirt created in 1994 by the house for the French charity! The collection included denim pieces, luxurius fabrics and vintage garments, printed textures and dresses and tops with asymmetrical hems! The accessories were large ruched bags across models’ bodies, black sunglasses, thick waist belts and long satin gloves! The colors were pastels, a lot of black and whites, blue denim and magenta.
Malan Breton SS19
Malan Breton’s SS19 collection was named “SHOW GIRL” and it was inspired by the films of the 1920s. Gowns and capes with sequins and layers of tulle and leather. We also saw brocade pieces inspired by Malan’s origin, Taiwan! Our favourite pieces were the ones with the playful feathered details! It was an incredible show with rich colors and metallics which was followed by a spectacular carousel sound!
Paula Knorr SS19
This collection was an absolute dream! Paula Knorr’s SS19 collection plays with the contrast between volume and fitted silhouettes. Through this exploration of extremes, Knorr reveals obscured shapes, together with figure-hugging silhouettes.
Fabrics include soft viscose crepe, light stretched cotton and shiny metallic lamé. Soft jersey gowns and light cotton tunics are fused with bold, Swarovski crystal embroidered mini-dresses and voluminous trousers. Illusion tulle is printed with glittery clouds to create translucent textures.
Neutral colors with a pop of electric blue, patchwork and deluxe leathers for Tod’s! A powerful collection with almost everything made from leather. This collection was about the Italian holiday. Chic easy-to-wear dresses, loose shorts, shirts and printed trousers all you need for your summer getaway! A continued collection with complementary looks which reflected the elegant lifestyle!
Leather outfits, sequinned dresses and metallic details by Ricostru. Sheer tops, dresses and trousers perfectly matched with sneakers. Metallic accessories and high heeled sandals in purple, green and peach!
We loved every single piece from this collection in Milan, highly desirable products both conceptual and commercial to get people shopping.!
