The runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris have been walked, leaving us breathless and inspired! We were taken on journeys around the world, through time and into altered realities. These are the collections that we will certainly be ready to wear, come fall…

Marchesa took us on a lavish Scottish adventure with glamorous variants on tartans and argyles in colors that awakened the senses.

Temperley London delivered demure offerings with a “funky”, yet elegant mix of floral prints, Byzantine patterns, quilted fabrics and layered draping.

Salvatore Ferragamo‘s inspired leather pieces, dipped in metallic paint, were beyond sensational, as well as a pair of fitted ribbed-knit dresses that appeared to be gilded in gold leaf.

Alberta Ferretti charmed us with her ethereal “metamorphosis of nature and woman”, presenting feather infused frocks and a fabulous parade of textured fabrics.

Iris Van Herpen seduced us with her vacuum-packed alien fashion titled “Biopiracy” and her emerging signature 3-D confections.

Lanvin was all graceful chic with Alber Elbaz’s “Triple X—Xtravagant, Xtreme, and Xperiment” vision. Hats trimmed or lined with marabou cast shadowy drama that enhanced the shimmering fabrics, furs and feathers of his glorious garments.

The entire collections can be viewed at Style.com

Maurizio Pecoraro, Irving Penn, Mark Rothko, Robert Mapplethorpe, Lee Ufan, Milan Fashion Week, Spring 2013 RTW

What is modern minimalism in Milan? Maurizio Pecoraro has a few ideas and has literally made art of them with the help of a few well curated friends: Irving Penn, Mark Rothko, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Lee Ufan. His garmets may seem ultra paired down to basic shapes and forms, but there is a deep intellectual sensuality at play. Particularly in the evening tanks, skirts and dresses that resemble single elongated petals loosely enveloping the wearer as they drip with sequins. It is this fresh, yet smouldering wetness that makes this minimalism, well, so much more…

Alberta Ferretti, Milan Fashion Week, Spring 2013 RTWCiao Milan! On the heels of so much fashion travel (over land and through time), Alberta Ferretti offers a welcomed invitation to dip our toes into an aquatic world of ethereal femininity. Her collection inspired by the watery underworld is profoundly beautiful with illusions of iridescent anemones, lace seaweed, and other delicate sea creatures – all of which seem unaware they are made of fabric and swim through air as if it were liquid. It is exactly this quality that gives merit to showcasing this collection in abundance. Most remarkable are those looks layering sheer organza over beaded or embroidered fabrics. Without doubt, Ferretti’s luminous garments would leave even the most potent Siren of the sea breathless.
