Milan fashion week isn’t over yet, but unfortunately for me it is so I thought I’d wrap it up for you guys as well (we’ll just ignore the last day collectively). It was a crazy week: I flew to Milan on Wednesday, gave a presentation for the Joint Research Center on Tuesday and flew back Friday. Meanwhile I was feeling the love for tissues more and more as I got sicker and sicker. Bah, hate when that happens! Just before I left for Milan my boyfriend got sick and I did everything I could to avoid getting sick myself, a.k.a. I pretty much avoided any contact (I introduced separate salad bowls and a pack on the cheek was the highlight of the day). And it was all for nothing… Ah well, luckily I can see the rest of Milan fashion week from my computer screen with a shitload of vitamin C pills.
A more detailed report of my time in Milan will follow soon, but for now I’d like to share some highlights of the SS16 collections. I’ll be implementing these 4 things to my wardrobe:
1. Classic tailoring with unexpected details
2. Yellow & burned orange have never looked this good
3. Light layers and white tones for Spring ’16
4. Full on prints, from abstract patterns to flowers
