A quick look at Milan Fashion Week

I have barely had time to cruise through the London and Milan Fashion Weeks but managed today to grab a few images from a quick look at some collections from Milan.

Dolce and Gabbana ended the week yesterday with a well received show including silk pajama like pantsuits. Loved them. Back in the 80s I had a vintage pair of silk pjs and I wore the top out over a tank usually. I still have that top, I think it may be dryrotted now, but perhaps I should take a look. Is this a practical look? Well no, D&G off the runway isn't in the budget anyway, so no worries there. However, a daring celeb or model could pull it off easily.

Armani's dresses and suits looked like typical, but pretty, Armani. Here we have a photo of the makeup which Linda Cantello did. More metallics again here. She created the "steamy" look with a charcoal grey eye that had a shimmery silver accent in the corners. She also applied pink-gold blush, and daubs of Kiehl’s Since 1851 lip balm on the eyelids, brows and cheeks.

I always like the Blumarine show and this one had a gorgeous coat and a fab pair of big sunglasses. Beautiful.

Lastly Burberry Prorsum gave us some nice new trench coats. A gold brocade and a beaded black one.
