Versace is a brand I have always admired in terms of their creative direction (and their perfumes!) but in terms of their collections they never really scream out to me personally until I seen this collection for Fall 2015. The show started out very simple and chic with a collection of black pinstripe office style wear with suits, jackets and pencil skirts. Each look had a slight pop of colour injected which seemed to be an indication of what was to come.
Thereafter was an explosion of colour onto the runway. Bold hues took over through a collection of capes and coats with 60s style wide belts. The 60s theme continued with a range of geometric prints and the silhouettes took an interesting turn with cutouts and high slits up the leg. The collection certainty carried the Versace name not only through the style but it was clearly emblazoned on a number of pieces through the collection.
The end of the show was really the wow moment for me. Mainly black based mini dresses and sheer tops featuring rainbow hued embellishments stole it for me. Donatella certainty showed her inspiration of the digital age with hash-tag and ‘@’ symbolism embellished on the designs. Karlie Kloss sported the winner for me with a sheer top halved dress featuring a range of Technicolor embellishments which certainly was a fresh take on the classic LBD. The collection was bold, bright, current and had the Versace name all over it (literally). Check out the rest of the collection here.

Milan Fashion Week has officially kicked off and the first collection to hit the runway was Dsquared². The collection was full of bright colors and prints perfect for Spring. There was a slight poolside look element to many of the designs with short lengths, sun hats and swim wear which would look perfect at any glamorous pool party. This collection has got to be one of my favorites from Dsquared² and its cocktail bar look and poolside glamour makes me want summer back already! Below are some pieces from the collection. What do you think of this collection? The rest of the collection can be viewed at Style.com.

Last week Dolce & Gabbana took to Milan Fashion Week with their Fall 2013 collection. The collection had an interesting Religious theme to it with notable religious figures regularly appearing throughout the show aswell as the cross symbol making an appearance. A mosaic design also played a part in the collection that was featured on many of the designs which gives another suggestion towards the religious theme symboling a church decor possibly.There was also very ladylike dresses with many lace numbers which are typical to D&G.

Fashion Week is moving swiftly on as we have now approached Milan! One of the collections to hit the runway this week was Moschino. This collection had an interesting theme running through it with a Tartan highland inspired look and an equestrian inspiration. The collection seems rather unusual and quirky to say the least but did contain the usual Moschino monochrome which is always making an appearance. Compared to previous collections this one is very ‘out there’ if you know what I mean and seems to be too much for a Ready to wear collection in my opinion.
