Milan Fall 08 I

1. Francesco Scognamiglio:

I think this is an absolutely beautiful look suffering from horrible styling choices. The gloves are disgusting and don't even get me started on those clunky shoes. Although I think the real reason why I love this look so much is because it reminds me of the bottles of Chloe Narcisse that I used to always see at my grandma's house. I remembered them much more extravagant, but it makes sense since I was so young.

2. Jil Sander:

This collection was amazing, but is that even surprising? Raf Simons is brilliant. It's true. This season the silhouette was kept minimal, with explosions of pleats and folds that were both slightly wild and rigorous, carefree and accidental while perfectly put together. I don't know how he achieved that. I don't think I am yet the woman that wears these kinds of clothes, but I sure do hope I'm on my way.

3. Burberry Prorsum:

I love the new Burberry Girl. Those pants are so Versace glamazon, yet they look slightly subversive in the hands of Christopher Bailey. It's cool that he showed it both relaxed, with a top and an easy blazer, and more dressed up, with the sculpted (yes, Balenciaga-ish) top.

This is one gorgeous dress/coat. It's the perfect shade of purple.

Perfect color, perfect shape, perfect pattern. I would live in this all winter.
