Milan Spring 08 II

1. Missoni:

I love this because it's the Baroque version of that super simple and chic outfit Anna Della Russo wore in that great Sartorialist picture.

Mondrian Broadway Boogie Woogie + Pixels= this dress. How could I not love it?

2. Marni:

No one makes dresses for the sophisticated smart girl quite like Consuelo does.

3. Alberta Ferreti:

A little Greek inspired, a whole lotta sexy.

Another variation on the blouse and skirt combo I'm obsessing with these days. I love the peach/tangerine combination and the relaxed-nonchalant-glamour attitude it exudes.

4. Anna Molinari:

I'm also really starting to get into 90's body-conscious dresses (see all the American Apparel dresses in my closet), but this is way better. I'm a sucker for stripes and bold prints and this dress has them all.

5. Gucci:

After her amazing Resort collection, I was expecting way more from this show. Maybe I should stop expecting things to be at the level they were when Tom Ford was designing and just look at everything for what it is. Maybe I already am and I'm still not finding it. In any case, this was the only look I liked. It's modern and has tons of swagger. I didn't understand the super bright yellow in the collection or the weird debutante-type gowns that came at the end. I'm still on Team Frida though.
