Best of Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear (Milan)

Roberto Cavalli
Cavalli's Fall collection was beautifully feminine and fun. His clothes are always so luxurious in every way and somewhat over-the-top at times, but this collection had just enough. All the many different prints, fabrics and colors were combined wonderfully. 

Emporio Armani
I always love the Emporio Armani collections. Everything is so elegant and chic, but they add nice girly or edgy details. The clothes are always perfect for nice modern evening wear. In this collection, there was definitely inspiration from the 1920's flappers (adore!) with the headpieces and low-slung dresses. The long evening shorts looked nice with the frilly blouses. All the girly details to this collection were just right with the dark colors. 

Iceberg is always very sleek and modern. The sweaters were so cozy and wearable yet chic for the high-fashion goers. The bright colors added with the jackets was nice, instead of a black jacket over colors. Lots of black pants and great tops. I would take an outfit to wear right off the runway. 

Donatella had a gothic theme to her usual dominatrix like style this Fall season. I thought it was one of her best collections yet. She is so good at using color, but all the black in a darker look was a different take. I liked it. The body-conscious silhouettes on a dark canvas was a nice combination.

If anyone can make something look "cool," it's Dsquared². The pairing of pencil skirts with sleek jackets was perfect. It was a little good girl gone bad, yet keeping its sweetness.The style was a little early 1960's, as well. I am really loving these pencil skirt looks for the fall (but maybe I will test it out it early in the spring)!

Just Cavalli
Roberto Cavalli's contemporary line had some great fresh fall looks. The first couple of looks had a really nice black and white striped chiffon material. Later, the darker fall colors were so fresh the way they were paired with leggings and fur over tweed jackets or played-up denim then on to golds and silvers. Very youthful!

Miuccia's Fall collection was very bold and a definite fashion statement. It was interesting she chose some styles that aren't flattering, like menswear, pajamas, pillowed toed pumps and weirdly shaped long dresses. However, that is what makes Prada so unique; Miuccia always brings out something different. The jacket and pant looks were very nice with a wide belt in a structured silhouette. New trends are soon to come!

Versace's contemporary line always brings a young edge. I love how Donatella makes tough and edgy look so sophisticated. The colors gave a nice fresh feel to a dark style. The leather sleeved red jacket in the first look was my favorite.
