Milan Fashion Week Wrap-Up

Milan Fashion Week is finishing up, and then it’s off to gay Paree. If you were suffering from fashion fatigue this week, here’s a cheat sheet to what the critics had to say:

  • NYT fashion scribe Cathy Horyn was none too pleased with Milan’s presenters, singling out Dolce & Gabbana for “cafe curtain lace” corsets, Marni for “Dr. Seuss characters,” and, “Heavy on beige, Karl Lagerfeld’s boudoir show for Fendi made you think a giant pair of old pantyhose had fallen over Milan.” Ooh, burn. [NY Times]
  • Bottega Veneta earned the highest marks for taking the “fashion detox” route, ignoring splashy prints and colors, and instead presenting a minimalist collection of white summer dresses with Japanese-influenced construction. [LA Times]
  • One prominent trend: see-through designs, whether through mesh, transparent fabrics, Lucite, or cut-outs. [Guardian]
  • Dsquared2’s collection was apparently stolen from the wardrobe of “Zoolander.” Mugatu must be raving mad now. [The Frisky]
