Centenera

Stylist Christina Centenera rocked the most amazing leather trousers yesterday by Australian label Ksubi, wouldn’t mind these at all!!!

I’m on the run again, but if you wanna see what I’m up to during the day, you’ll find me on Instagram under #hedvigso, yes I know, I’m like the last person in this universe to hook up on it, but better late than never right. Happy Friday everyone!

Via Borromei

Ok, I’m heading back to London to get some work done before I repack my suitcase for Paris in a couple of days. Didn’t have much time for shopping in Milan but a quick trip by the Celine store on via Montenapoleone resulted in something that I’ve wanted for years, Christmas in February!

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 allΒ 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?Β I don’t doubt these prints will be a hit among some but for me a big no, see the whole collectionΒ 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 collectionΒ here.

Prada SS12 Full Show

We all know Prada’s massive influence on trends so if you’ve got 11 min this noon and want to have a sneak peak of what Spring 2012 might be all about here’s Prada’s full runway show from Milan.
I love this collection a lot more than the last collections with pieces that are much easier to adopt to your own wardrobe either you have a Prada budget or simply use it for inspiration. I especially like the knee length skirts worn with lace printed wide cropped jackets, also, be prepared for some serious midriff and carprints. See the whole collection here.

Maxis, brogues and bum-bags

Dolce & Gabbana sent down their donnas on the runway today in Milan wearing maxi dresses, brogues with socks and bum bags. I love this unpredictable combination though I find it hard to swallow the star prints that seems to be the red line through the whole collection. Having that said I’ve never been a D&G fan but these bum bags look fantastic!
