Second day of Milan Fashion Week and as I promised, here is another short-post to let you live a little bit of my fashion week before the posts of the single collecions.
Milan is completely paralyzed by the snow, or rather, fashion people are completely paralyzed by the snow. Some photographers complain that this year the street-style is undertone, because of these terrible weather conditions. Are we seeing a return to sobriety? No, it’s just really cold.
In front of the Krizia theatre in Via Manin, there is the usual crowd of customers and buyers, bloggers and photographers, I found even Filippa Lagerback.
On the catwalk, a change of course: sexyness declined on the icon elements of the brand: extra-big shoulder pads, high heels, pleats and the wild beasts with gaping jaws.
The surprise: two menswear outfits. Is it a sign of (re)opening even the male universe?
In the late afternoon there was Daniela Gregis show in the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio, under a relentless snow. A “rural! collection with very colorful artistic inspirations.
The real excitement? Seeing the 60s fashion icon Benedetta Barzini modeling on the catwalk. So elegant personality!
In the evening I attended the Vogue and Pinko party where was launched the project “Pinko Bag for Ethiopia”. A special capsule collection dedicated to the iconic Pinko Bag designed by Marina Spadafora following the Fashion for Development project, which fight for development in the third world countries through fashion. A tribute to the culture and people of the Horn of Africa. (Needless to say, very soon you will read a post totally dedicated even to this special initiative.)
