Ciao, my beloved readers. I hope y’all are following Milan Fashion Week closely because there’s so much sartorial goodness going on right now. In case you missed the first day of Milan, here is a brief recap of the best shows. And I stand so corrected when I said that more eyegasm is in store for us. Day 2 of MFW was a sensational visual feast. There wasn’t a single collection that didn’t leave me hanging and wanting so much more. As I’m typing this, Day 3 is well underway, and though some shows are really outstanding such as Gucci, I haven’t quite felt the adrenaline rush that Day 2 gave me. (Yes, you heard me. In some way, it was even better than fornication. Lol, just kidding.) The Italians have proved once again that fashion remains their territory. They know what to do and do it exceptionally well. One of the day’s overarching themes was sexy and futuristic well-constructed sportswear at shows like Salvatore Ferragamo and Calvin Klein. At other shows like Bottega Veneta and Trussardi, it was all about craftsmanship and perfect tailoring while Vivienne Westwood, Missoni and Prada seem to have loosened up quite a bit on the razor-sharp tailoring concept that their Italian counterparts are still banking on. As for Moncler Gamme Bleu, which ended the day on a high sartorial note, Thom Browne’s name was simply written all over it from the setting, the makeup to the clothes. I’m just very happy that some designers have carved out their own niches so successfully that we oftentimes don’t have to know beforehand the name of the show we attend yet still manage to identify whose it belongs to. Now before we proceed to Day 3, let’s re-see some of the best looks from each show.
