A few looks from Milan - a suitable title may be "unlikely to be worn in NYC"





The good news is that the Gucci design team relocated from London to Milan -this is a sign that the Gucci owners are trying to move away from the Tom Ford way of doing things.
The bad news is that they hired some London aristotart as a "style consultant" - this isn't going to help much.

Donatella V will not show Versus and won't have celebs in her first row.

Richard Avedon and Geoffrey Beene died this week - and since you come to this Blog to read what NY Times, etc "journalism" forgets to mention, Mr Beene once described A Wintour's belief system as follows: "It's all about merch, merch, merch"
He also said that "Wintour is a woman of simmering discontent...a boss lady in four-wheel drive who ignores or abandons those who do not fuel her tank. As an editor, she has turned class into mass, taste into waste. Is she not a trend herself?"

Obviously yes, the dominant trend in a couple of "fashion capitals", at least

Gianne Albertoni, Michele Alves, Elena Rosenkova, Maja Latinovic - not sure about the greenish dress blonde and the one in the light colored dress (she could be a celeb)

Yeah who's the blonde in the green dress?? Milan has been mostly boring, something's changed since a few seasons ago.. Dolce & Gabbana keep it fun but the rest is a repetition of a repetition of a repetition. London was boring too, and New York was even worse. Can't wait for Paris, Paris is the best fashion city imo.

The blonde is from the D-Squared show...

Milan can never been boring modelwise, with over 200 shows and stuff like Un-Dress and Cavalli
- or even Blumarine

As for Paris, I don't see where the excitement will come from - the theatrics will certainly be better, but the only show I really want to see is Elie Saab, the "new (Gianni) Versace"
