Milan Fashion Week begins today. What am I looking forward to seeing? Lots of gorgeous prints, of course!
My love for several Italian fashion houses runs deep. Pucci has been a big influence on me for several years now. Cavalli, Marni, Etro and Prada also turn out amazing patterned clothes. And of course there are the iconic Missoni multicolour chevron knits. But there are also some younger brands, such as Stella Jean and MSGM, who are doing really exciting things, in my opinion. I can’t wait to see how the shows play out!
For a wealth of information on Milan Fashion Week, check out the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana website.
