Warning: This collection might give you an irrepressible need to want to spend the rest of your summer in Sicily. If you decided to continue reading, for better results, click here and play while reading.
Dolce & Gabbana was the first show I attended in Milan this season and I was extremely excited about it because it was my first. The traditional runway space at the Metropol had been stripped down from al decorations. Only at the back, a little peace of Sicilian landscape served as decoration – very old school. As everyone took their seats and the lights dimmed, a traditional Naples folk band lifted the mood with a Tarantella Napoletana (which you should be listening to from the link above).
For the casting, Domenico and Stefano had chosen mostly non-models and had instead gone finding teenagers and young kids from sound Sicily. There was something so charmingly authentic about it. The collection found inspiration in the Sicilian 50′s. A young boy would wear his brother’s hand-me-downs – trousers might be too short, or too wide but they would make it work.
It might be because I come from a similar Mediterranean culture but I was actually quite moved by this collection that was almost romantic. It reminded me slightly of one of my favourite Dolce & Gabbana collections ever – their FW10 Baarìa-inspired ultra-sober yet full of sentiment line. Read more

Even though Prada always hosts their menswear and womenswear shows at the same space on Via Fogazzaro you would never think you’re ever entering the same venue as last season. The wide open carpeted runway from last season had disappeared, the steps were now a ramp. Instead, I found a white sterile room flanked by blocks of press and buyers and a zig-zagging ramp at the back.
As soon as the show started it was evident that this was a game of precision. Perfect beams of light created a maze-light catwalk – geometry. After toying with flowers, pastels, golf motifs and colourful studs Miuccia seemed to want a clean slate. The SS13 collection was a beautifully precise story of modern lines and androgyny with a subtle reference to sportswear, specifically to tennis, via The Royal Tenenbaums – we wouldn’t want to miss out on Miuccia’s signature quirk.
Because it was about starting from scratch, we saw the reinvention of the basics: the polo shirt (my favourite), the v-neck jumper, even the slacks. The colour palette was restricted to white, beige, blues and blacks, apple green and burgundy used in a form of colour blocking that had more to do with the visual effect – is that part of the shirt or the jacket? is that top one piece? – than with any trend. Miuccia creates her own.

Today, exactly a week ago, during Milan Fashion Week, the by Styling Amsterdam team was invited to the Moncler Gamme Bleu spring /summer 2013 fashion show.
The show started with dancing sailors, boat flags hanging from the ceiling and the great music choice of Michel Gaubert. Thom Browne’s collection was centered around the sport of sailing, with jackets that have sailor collar flaps or trousers that flare from the knee. A full collection of white, red, white and blue and yellow, accessorized with white shoes, socks and sail-like capes.Thanks, for another amazing day in my favorite Italian city. Too bad I got 2 broken rib and must be in bed after Moncler Gamme Bleu Show.
