Top 5 Trends from Italy

Just like that, another batch of gorgeous Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collections hit the runway and leaving us wanting more. With Milan Fashion Week coming to a close, we reflect on our five favorite trends from Italy:

 

1.       Sporty Chic - With the sporty trend already embraced during New York Fashion Week, Milan designers focused on adding a more athletic touch to an already feminie look. Case in point, Prada adding a sporty detail like leg warmers while Emilio Pucci adds sparkley details and feminine shapes to sporyt wardrobe basics. 

2.       3D Florals - Florals for spring and summer is nothing new but Milan fashion designs Dolce & Gabbana ad Marni fully embraced the trend that will blossom all season long!

3.       Let’s Rock! - Milan Fashion Week pushed the envelope with a rocker chic looks for spring and summer featuring fringe, leather and of course sexy cut outs. Versace and Roberto Cavalli lead the pack wth these gorgeous yet daring looks. 

4.       Bling - One of the biggest trends we saw for spring/summer 2014 was the use of embellishments. Each collection impressive us more and more as the week progressed as designers seem to follow the same philosophy when it came to bling–go big or go home.

5.       Bold Hues - As always, spring runways are full of light and bright colors and this season is no exception. Several of our famed Italian designers are playing up the punch and injecting color in a big way just like Fendi and Gucci!

Botanical Inspired Fall Collection

An explosion of color inspired by an imaginary visit to Italy’s and the world’s most beautiful botanical gardens, such as the Hanbury garden in Ventimiglia, the Villa Demidoff park in Florence or the Altea garden of Valencia.

The silhouette is simple and immediate, easy, it wraps around the figure which is often highlighted by borders which frame the garments. A subtle Eighties inspiration reinterpreted in a modern guise and deprived of all rigidity. The oftentimes asymmetric hems with wrap over skirt effect for simple straight-line dresses contrast with soft mini dresses with maxi pull effect. Lace is an important detail decorating necklines and enhancing the back. The dresses find volumes in small frills around which wind python-effect metals. Part of the collection is dedicated to colder climates with comfortable color-print down jackets, small coats with soft rouches, sinuous dresses in heavy Milano stitch and short wrap-around dresses in warm modal jersey. The evening section consists of dresses almost completely embroidered with mermaid line or small mini dresses and corsets with embroidered fringes or wrap dresses with deep V necklines and long sleeves.

This collection is available at the Roberto Cavalli boutique at The Shops at Crystals.
