I have probably never had such a busy fashion week as this last one in Milan. I am exhausted but couldn't be happier with all I saw.
My second to last day in Italy's home of fashion was spent at the Jimmi Choo and Charlotte Olympia showrooms (I am a huge fan of Charlotte and make sure to pay her a visit anywhere in the world!) I then headed to the Ermano Scervino show where I found the dreamiest evening clothes. Can it be Summer again so I can wear these works of art out ASAP?
At night I headed to the amfAR gala, which ended up raising $1.6 million for AIDS research. Amazing! Us lucky guests were gifted with performances by Debbie Harry - how much cooler can you get? - and Icona Pop. I had a blast, especially because I got to spend some time with some Brazilian friends and fellow digital influencers, like the dearest Helena Bourdon. Oh, and what did I wear? The most flawless jumpsuit by my go-to-red-carpet-designer Alice Temperley (remember that I wore a dress by her at Cannes?) I felt incredible thanks to this talented woman - thank you, Alice!
On my last day of MFW, I had the company of Dolce & Gabanna and Missoni. Missoni returned to its origins with its traditional stripped knits. Staple Missoni items such as slinky dresses, palazzo pants and tank tops over capris were ever so present on the runway. D&G turned their fashion show into a social media theater as models walked down the runway taking selfies. The clothes continued on the same wave as last season's, with a lot of embroideries of flowers and phrases. This time around they read "Italy is love". It is indeed!
