While fashion month is still running, London and Milan have called it a wrap. From Burberry Prorsum, Peter Pilotto and others in London to Dolce and Gabbana, Prada and the rest of the Milanese fashion houses, each collection delivered something new and something to wow about.
In London, Peter Pilotto once again stood out with his graphic prints and silhouettes while Burberry Prorsum presented yet another successful collection including yet again revamped versions of the traditional trench. Christopher Baily makes one wonder in how many ways can the trench be reinvented, but this appears not to be a challenge for his masterful mind and this is case in point for much of the success the house of trenches has received and how it has been transformed into a fashion savvy empire.
In Milan, Dolce and Gabbana once again paid homage to their homeland and presented a collection of pieces of art with strong religious references (and some monarchic ones; see crowns) along with their trademark lace dresses. The twins at Dsquared jazzed it up, while Miuccia Prada sent down the runway a collection that comprised of feminine shapes contrasted with heavy-duty shoes, which are by the way going straight on my wishlist along with those Jil Sander pointed toe beauties.
One thing I love about runway designer collections is that it inspires. It's the backbone of fashion. They deliver new shapes, new colour palettes and new shoes (Prada's I'm still talking about you). And thankfully, the high-street is always looking.
