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

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…)

Ports 1961 catwalk show - Milan Fashion Week

Ports 1961 catwalk show – Milan Fashion Week

What a beautiful second day we had in Milan yesterday, starting with a delicious breakfast with the girls from Castor and continuing with reviewing the latest Giles and Mantù collections from up-close (literally up-close, I got to try on an outfit!!!). Full of delicate textures and digital prints, Giles carried on his signature lip prints applied on cool dresses, volumed pastel pink coats and appliquéd onto chiffon sleeves, while the digital prints pictured Kate Moss.

Mantù also did something truly beautiful; with the inspiration board picturing detail-rich architectural master pieces, the dresses spoke of the same; beaded collars, floral embellishments and clean lines featured their Spring/Summer 2014 pieces. The highlight of the day though was the Ports 1961 show for the very first time in SilkSoFine’s life – from the first to the last minute our attention was driven by the stunning palette of walking beauties. The collection lined up colours from wintery whites and blacks to warm late summer slash autumn camels through springy pinks reminding me of the four seasons, in the shapes of boxy coats, A-line skirts and pleated dresses. The day ended with proper ‘dolce vita’ feeling in the companion of delish cocktails and light dinner.

Wir hatten gestern so einen wundervollen zweitenTag in Mailand! Er begann mit einem leckeren Frühstück zusammen mit den Mädels von Castor und anschließend schauten wir uns die aktuellen Giles und Mantù Kollektionen aus der Nähe an (und ich meine buchstäblich aus der Nähe, ich durfte sogar ein Outfit anprobieren!!!).

So here we go again; yesterday we safely arrived in London and headed to the buzzing scene of fashion dreams, to the Somerset House. Oh I almost forgot, from now on I’ll briefly introduce you our daily happenings, which you can otherwise also catch up with on Instagram in terms of visual treats. Today’s is called about and around – scenes, places and faces. So yesterday was kind of short day due to the lots of travelling, but we made sure to have our daily dose of London Fashion Week.

My favourite corner so far

We first arrived to the Eugene Lin show at the lovely Freemason’s Hall that spoke of clean, precise and deluxe aesthetics, then headed over to Somerset House to spot some streestyle in the pouring rain and get our fast track pass to the showrooms. Unfortunately I was not allowed to take photos there, but I’ll make sure to introduce you our new personal favourites through longer posts later on. Streetstyle-wise I had a crush on this chinese beauty wearing vintage autumn hues while playing the textures hard (image 1.). Isn’t she just lovely? Well, gotta rush now and let the images speak instead of words, but will be back with fresh news tomorrow;)

Es ist wieder so weit, gestern sind wir gut in London angekommen und haben uns gleich in die geschäftige Welt der Modeträume aufgemacht, zum Somerset House. Oh, ich habs fast vergessen, von nun an werde ich euch kurz unsere täglichen Erlebnisse präsentieren, die ihr außerdem auch auf Instagram verfolgen könnt, vor allem was das visuelle Vergnügen betrifft.
