From Milan

That prints and patterns are some designers vision of spring 2012 is quite clear by now and according to some the more mismatch the better. Not very surprisingly the prints continued on Missoni’s, Pucci’s and Marni’s runway in Milan this weekend, but Dolce & Gabbana topped them all continuing where Stella McCartney and Prada left the fruit disk last season and introduced vegetables. How would you feel about a chili printed dress, or how about onions, tomatos and cucumber? I don’t doubt these prints will be a hit among some but for me a big no, see the whole collection here.

Call me boring or perhaps I’m lacking humor but my personal favorite this weekend from Milan is Jil Sander’s SS12 collection where Raf Simons have let paisley, gingham patterns and all-white-shirts-looks replace last seasons successful stripes and color blocking. Perhaps not the most exiting collection by Simons but it’s a clean, fresh and minimal way to include patterns and prints, were the long, narrow silhouettes and graphic printed jumpers continues where his A/W 11 collection ends, see the whole collection here.

    [...] Hey ya’ll, hope you’ve had an enjoyable weekend so far, I’ve been cuddling up at home myself and taking things very slowly, hence the relaxing outfit on my Saturday walk. After a whole week in jeans I jumped into these comfy pants by Marant which despite the resemble to gym wear can be quite dressy, this was the relaxed side of them though, but I ‘d love to wear them with an open loose top, sandals and a little bag for the next party. If any impressions are made on anyone it would perhaps be the girl in sweatpants, but I prefer that instead of the girl in onion or chili. [...]
