Best of Milan Fall 2011

Leave it to Milan to amp up Fall 2011 with a series of forward thinking outings that were as full of nuanced personality as they were of wearable ideas. Here's a look at our favorites, destined to inspire future buys for ourselves & the shop.

Prada(and above)

An intoxicating mix of nostalgia from Yves Saint Laurent in the 80's to sci-fi mermaids with an achingly hip 60's undercurrent to the demure dolly-girl dresses, Miuccia Prada's Fall outing was hedonistically other worldly pastiched with the most charming display of femininity.

Jil Sander

There's not much to contemplate with Raf Simon's latest smash hit for Jil Sander with it's easy on the wear sensibility. Sportswear with a clean spirit met with a techno Couture hybrid made for a sensational collection full of impeccable must-have appeal.


Bravo to Missoni for using the catwalk as a refreshingly seductive foundation for fantasy rather than an all-out knit parade. Something about the magpie layering, devotion to sublime technicolor and the over all fairy nymph appeal paid off big for the Milanese house.
