Milan Fashion Week: Prada, D&G, Fendi

Milan Fashion Week continued yesterday with Prada and Fendi, in addition to D&G’s swan song.

The hot rod cars of the 1950s influenced the Prada show, as printed bandeau tops and appliqué leather pencil skirts brandished the car motif. Highlights included the silks jackets with floral appliqué and the 1950s high cut swimsuits. Beading was seen on the shoulder and collar of jackets and knife pleat skirts stopped just short of the knee. A pastel palette of powder blue, lemon and candyfloss pink continued spring 12’s love for colour.

In the last show from D&G, following reports the label is to merge with Dolce & Gabbana, the collection was bright and bold with a hint of Versace about it thanks to the scarf print silks that dominated. Prints and colours clashed in a furore of highlighter pinks, greens and orange. Hemlines were short on strapless mini dresses and silk shorts, whilst the denim shirt played an important role with printed silk contrast panels.

Fendi bucked the trend for florals, and instead went with stripes for its spring 12 show. A neural palette of coffee crème and caramel worked alongside a cooler palette of white and icy blue. Silhouettes were conservative with shirt dresses and crisp masculine shirts teamed with A line skirts. Peek-a-boo details added design difference with cutaway shoulders on shirts and outerwear.

Milan Fashion Week continues today with Moschino, Versace and Etro.
