Italian designers are showing love for the quirky glasses. Dsquared², Fendi, Emporio Armani, Moschino and Just Cavalli.

Let’s begin Just Cavalli. His star-shaped glasses reminds us of the  seventies rock-flower-love era. With a collection that will make you a sex god during the festival season — even though we wouldn’t recommend you to wear his treasure pieces to the festivals. Okay, maybe just the cool glasses.

The bohemian chick at Just Cavalli is sexy, as his designs features loads of slits in his dresses, bringing attention to the legs.

Dsquared²’s collection had sporty basics sophisticated with the glamour of the ruffles, ostrich skirts, ruffled cocktail dresses and suits. It’s the casual with the not so casual.

Our basic white top and denim were layered with a blazer and what seems to be party pieces  (e.g. the golden peplum leather jacket and circle sequinned coat). An average person wouldn’t even risk of placing party pieces together with everyday casual wear. Yet, the duo done it such a way that makes us to experiment more with the basic casual look. Perhaps they were inspired by the street fashion. Maybe they’re sending a message — the basic top and  denim jack works with anything, but it’s the styling that’ll you make you stand out.

Therefore, we must wonder. Is this the street-sophisticated chick? She’s still street, but not enough street to let go of her embellished dresses, ostrich skirts, bags, caged shoes sequins, coloured suits and leather. Afterall, you can spot a few sporty-like pieces in their collection.

Her head’s fixed straight, she still has the sleek tie back hair and glasses. So not all is lost. Okay, let’s assume she’s a little flirtatious, but have you heard the saying that ‘you can be sexy and still classy?’

Remember what we said before as to how designers are using sport pieces to complete sport-sophisticated looks. Guess not everybody is sporting the trainers!

Moving on to Fendi. So far, Day 1 at Milan celebrates spirit the Italian fashion of the sixties and seventies.

We can all agree that these feather dresses (at Fendi) are definitely on our wishlist. Now does Karl Lagerfield do it? Someone please tell us.

The use of the orchids represents another theme that we’ve seen designers across the board be experimenting with —  youth.

Francesco Scognamiglio never shied away from showcasing the beauty of a woman, with the embroidery covering the intimate places nicely. Simply leading the way of all things sheer in a seductive manner.

Fay follows in the footsteps of London’s Nasir Mazhar by creating their own collection of streetwear twist of sequins, trainer-heels and a comic character from a nineties show (that we can’t remember). Many would feel that this is an Italian replica of Mazhar’s streetwear aesthetics. From the elastic underwear logo to the backpacks and basketball shorts. It’s as if they joined both the mens’ and womens’ streetwear into one collection. Whilst Mazhar collection is street-glamour, Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi’s Fay S/S 15 collection is street-a-porter. To be honest, the street fashion has had a massive influence on the fashion scene. Trendforecasters, photographers and bloggers alike in the digital village have shaped brands to tailor their looks to consumers as well as becoming trendsetters overnight. Indeed, it’s the fashionistas on the street of these four cities who are inspiring the looks in high-fashion.

If only we could have the shoes.

Ahh Moschino Moschino. Jeremy Scott has won over the Moschino lovers with his Barbie inspired collection.

Even the model Charlotte Free was on roller skates. One of the dolls’ multi-talents.

The collection featured playful pieces of brights, funky jewellery, sequins, printed scraves, sequins, denim and all things pink. Allowing attendees to enter the Barbie World in prestigious Italia.

To have one of the models roller-skate on the catwalk is an uncommon thing in Milan. Perhaps in New York (since Barbie is American) and maybe in London (because you know how the city does things for the art and individualism).

Either way, the collection is one that our inner child used to admire once our parents brought us the doll from the toy shop. Either as gift, reward or love. Now that we’ve all grown up, the clothes makes us want to grab the whole collection, place it in a (preferably) stain white wardrobe similar to Cher Horowitz in nineties hit show “Clueless” and start to play, mix and match the outfits with no repeats. The models themselves can be easily life-blow up dolls on our shelves of Barbies –that’s if you have/had a Barbie doll collection.

Let’s be real,  we must have all envied everything Barbie had in our childhood days (even though she wasn’t really real in the first place). Now thanks to Scott, we can actually get what she got — but better.

Barbie is no more Barbie.  Barbie is now the Moschino chic.

Prada creates a beautiful contrast collection that explores the tug of war with the contrasts. The poor as in the frayed detail, topstitching and the doubled socks. The rich as in the diamonds featured on one collar line, pointed court shoes and the gilded fabrics. Miuccia purposely wanted her clothes to be unfinished in order for a beautiful outcome.
