MY #MFW SS18 DIARIES

IMG_2969.jpg

I had promised myself that this season I will try to make a daily blog diary while in Fashion Week. As you can see I didn’t meet my promise, BUT at least I’m posting the MFW recap just a couple of days after am back home - which truly is a success. Read on!

MFW DAY 1

First day in Milano and had a super early wakeup call for Max Mara, where lean tailoring and giant totes were the main protagonists and a beautiful Bella Hadid closed the show in an understated elegant black organza suit.

This season I’m also the fashion week correspondent for Luisa World and thanks to them I attended my first ever Fendi show - man that was good. Supermodels - Kaia, Bella, Gigi, Kendall, and the list goes on - parading down a colorful runway in some coveted modern-day chic ensembles.

Last show of the day was - wait for it - Prada baby. It’s always so emotional seeing Miuccia’s creations from up close. She was feeling artsy for her SS18 collection, where the main players were cartoons and graphics. Did I mention that Kaia {Gerber} walked the show too? This girl is seriously everywhere this season and to be honest I'm still not sure how I feel about her.

My day ended with a glass of bubbly at the Dolce & Gabbana millennial event at via Spiga before I headed to an intimate dinner at "Carlo e Camilla" - aka my new fave restaurant in Milan - with MAC cosmetics. 


MFW DAY 2

After a couple of espressos, I was up and ready to seize another beautiful day in Milano. God bless the Italian weather, for making it so much easier to jump out of bed and straight out on the streets.

First up, TOD’s. I walk in and immediately spot the ultimate "momager" - aka mrs Kris Jenner herself - along with Derek Blasberg and it’s the moment I know that Kendall will surely be opening the show. 10 minutes later, I see a naturally beautiful ms Jenner strutting down in a chic & timeless combo straight out of an Italian Summer.

Second show for the day; Sportmax. The main focus was on elevated sportswear as per usual and I really dig the idea of flat shoes for the entire SS18 season. It’s finally time to give our feet the much needed rest they deserve.

Etro was a feast for the eye, full of patterns and bold colors. I absolutely loved the finale, where designers and models walked down the runway smiling and cheering for the new colorful season ahead - or at least that’s what it looked like.

40 minutes & 5 blisters later I finally walk in Parco Sempione and take my seat for the Roberto Cavalli show.

The newly appointed creative director, redefined the brand’s idea of sexiness showing a much more casual side of the Cavalli woman. Flat shoes and easy silhouettes dominated the runway and I’m not sure I got the main message of this collection; it felt..confused. But who am I to judge, right? I better leave that to the experts.

I’m writing this article from the safety of my own bed, as I got back home earlier for some very special reason, but I’ll see you in Paris very soon, where my schedule will be even more hectic and you’ll probably get sick of my IG stories showing clothes and more clothes and parties and street style and…that’s all. 

Love you always.
