Milan Fashion Week Fall 2012 Top Trends
From brocade to lace to embellishments, it was seen all over the runway especially at the Dolce & Gabbana show where Domenico and Stefano covered their entire collection in elaborate gilt and pearl ornamentation with plenty of Roman Catholic iconography thrown in. There were bejeweled crosses and embellishments at Aquilano.Rimondi cut gold foil patters at Marni.
2. Head to Toe prints
If you are up to it, head to toe print is very big trend in Milan. This is a simple concept that’ll stretch your wardrobe a bit further: buy building blocks in the same print to wear separately or, more dramatically, together—for a full dress or pantsuit look.
3. Black Black Black
Black is perfect for fall as we know but the black for this season’s fall is very dramatic. There’s a distinct Film Noir feel in the air, with ‘40s silhouettes as seen in Antonio Maras’ lean, World War II-era dresses and Gucci’s Hollywood Regency sets.
Texture play, mixing prints, patterms and colors are still in season. The visual interest comes in the unexpected texture combinations: lamb fur with latex and thick knits at Missoni, and leather with wool next to micro-pleats and lace at Fendi.
