fashion week recap, milan

School has been absolutely crazy these past two weeks (ever since my birthday put me behind on a lot of readings I should've done) but I really wanted to finish up my fashion week recaps for the Spring/Summer 2011 collections. Milan was a great mixture of tailored and whimsical. I loved the playfulness with bold colours, but I also loved the neutrals, as always. Two of my favourites were Bottega Veneta and Emporio Armani - the collections are so wearable, yet bold and unique. I'm always amazed at what designers come up with, and how sometimes the simplest of outfits make the biggest impact. Fellow Canadian designers Dean and Dan Caten's line DSquared2 was one collection that completely blew me away - I had a hard time choosing just two outfits to showcase! Although, I'm loving the long, fierce gauze-like gowns of Roberto Cavalli just as much. Keep reading for the final installment, and my favourite place in the whole world: Paris!

Bottega Veneta | Moschino Cheap & Chic | DSquared2
Prada | Emporio Armani | Alberta Ferretti
Dolce & Gabbana | Emilio Pucci | Roberto Cavalli
