Currently ‘suffering’ from some post-fashion-week-syndrome, we are all thrilled, dazzled and exhausted, yet still are lively carrying each show and little detail in our heads and hearts. I’ll now make an attempt to sum up our last seven days briefly for you guys and more importantly provide a rather exciting visual treat with the usage of our own images taken by a Canon EOS M. Besides the tiredness, we are also dealing with the after effects of painful queuing in killer heels and zipping delicious alcoholic drinks, but despite all, we still wish that the season never ends.

This time we got to enjoy a few days of fashion madness in London, and thereafter in Milan for the very first time. Having previously lived in London, all the getting around went really smooth, mainly since most of the shows are concentrated at the Somerset House, as well as the designer showrooms that showcase an edit of contemporary and luxury designers over two floors to improve visitors’ navigation and ease. While in Milan it’s a bit like in Paris; in between the shows it’s a proper rush to get to one venue from the another, catching cabs and sort the maps.

Both cities though present the biggest names in fashion such as Mulberry, Burberry or Tom Ford in London, while Prada, Dolce&Gabbana and Valentino in Milan just to name a few, whereas in contrary to the big fashion houses, London also lines up the most refreshing and upcoming bunch of talents each season. Hence obviously there is a much bigger space for the underground scene in London; crazy blue hairs and eclectic styles strive to catch the press’ attention, while in Milan you rather spot hot brunettes arriving in heels and chic looks on red vespas wearing helmets.

To avoid cliches and generalisations there are argues for both; I mean London will always be the crazy, the dirty, the fun, the greatest place for the ‘anything goes’ belief. While in Milan there is an instant impulse due to the climatic zone and temperament; constant delays, matchless elegance, buzzing city life, the magical Duomo, the bella-s and ciao-s will make the Fashion Week stay unforgettable. Besides breathtaking shows, showrooms and great new connection, we enjoyed some rain and sun, croissants and cocktails here and there, the buzz around tastemakers, paparazzi, bloggers and celebrated stars. Thank you Spring/Summer 2014, you were such an unforgettable joy!

Wir leiden aktuell ein wenig am Post-Fashion-Week-Syndrom, wir sind begeistert, überwältigt und erschöpft und gleichzeitig erhalten wir jede Show und jedes klitzekleine Detail in unseren Köpfen und Herzen am Leben. Ich werde jetzt versuchen, unsere letzten 7 Tage kurz für euch zusammenzufassen und was noch viel wichtiger ist, euch einen ziemlich spannenden visuellen Leckerbissen anbieten mit Hilfe unserer eigenen Fotos, aufgenommen mit einer Canon EOS M.

Despite our Fashion Week travels are over by now, I still owe you a report from our last day in Milan. We weren’t sure whether it’s really happening or only stepped in our sweetest dreams, but  the morning view was rather gorgeous; a spacious white showroom fully packed with exceptional shoes and bag designs à la Nicholas Kirkwood for Pollini. The label is providing us with the best quality leathers and crafted designs since over 60 years now, each piece exclusively made in Italy.

Antonio Marras Spring/Summer 2014 - Milan Fashion Week

Antonio Marras Spring/Summer 2014 – Milan Fashion Week

It was more than a pleasure visiting the lovely team and showroom and the visual pleasure just continued  with Antonio Marras‘ show that showcased heavenly fairies, prom queens twisted grunge flare, through painted watercolour textiles and delicately draped backs in voluminous silhouettes. The collection was inspired by the whimsical sculptures of Kathy Ruttenberg and yet blurred the boundaries of fashion and art with it’s painterly prints and textural contrasts by recalling a pure poetic vision of 17th-century floral gardens. Then a light picnic at the very bohemian Maliparmi garden and a collection review at the originally Scottish brand, Ballantyne’s showroom followed. Grazie Milan, see you soon!

Unsere Reise zu den Fashion Weeks ist nun vorbei, aber ich schulde euch trotzdem noch einen Bericht von unserem letzten Tag in Mailand. (more…)
