Milan Fashion Week: Etro, Vionnet, Blumarine

I always loved the idea of “seasonless dressing”! To me, combining pieces that are unmistakably summer with heavier staples from fall/winter like coats and boots, yields a very modern, richly-layered look and feel! Enter my outfit for the Etro show. I absolutely adore the way this delicate lace dress from Etro’s SS18 Collection pairs with this season’s must-have: trench coat. For this particular look, I opted for knee-high white boots, but it also works paired with embellished sneakers for day, or a slightly more feminine, dressier option for night – high-heeled mules, for example. Finishing touches – an embellished cross-body bag & cool-looking sunnies!

Collection Highlights Day 3:

In both essence and color, Blumarine’s collections are never far from their namesake. Continuing the early ‘80’s vibe set to characterize this season, Blumarine’s fluidity and subtle shades of powder blues and turquoises are paired with high-necked frilled gowns, vibrant flowing sundresses, snakeskin boots and coats edged with luxurious furs that wouldn’t look amiss on Joan Collins during her Dynasty days.

Day 3 also saw Etro showcased a sumptuous yet balanced color palette with its collection of Native-American inspired textiles. Etro’s historical emphasis on textiles and leather is here intertwined with the embodiment of late ‘70s / early ‘80s shift in awareness of minority voices. Embroidered brocades, flowing tasseled dresses paired with patent knee-high boots, shawls, fur-lined jackets, thick belts and bohemian necklaces make Etro’s collection truly a feast for the eyes.

Vionnet’s unmistakably gentle approach to feminine fashion design is interwoven here with the fun and vibrancy of the ‘80’s woman. Pairing classic feminine softness with bold animal prints, waterfall suit jackets in sheer green-gold satin and large block colors of royal blues and clean whites with sharp cutting silhouettes, this is a thoroughly Vionnet take on contemporary late 20th century style: nothing is overstated but everything makes a statement.
