Spring Fashion Week usually tends to be very uninteresting to me. Bright colors, pastels, and prints are so blasé. Despite the differences in taste, I'm still keeping up with the collections. Fashion Week is such an exciting glimpse into the future, I just can't help it! I was very bored with what New York had to offer but I knew Milan would have at least one collection I'd fall in love with. And I did fall in love, not with one, but with two great collections.
Salvatore Ferragamo consistently produces beautiful collections. As I was looking through designers' latest works, there'd be a few pieces that I liked here and there, but I wasn't enjoying any collections as a whole. Ferragamo never seems to disappoint! I'm one of those people who wear black all year round so I'm thrilled by the use of a minimal color palette. I hope that come springtime people will be clad in more blacks and neutrals. It'll be so much easier on the eyes. The details in Ferragamo's garments are always superb. I enjoy the subtle prints and the repeated use of eyelets. This collection has strayed away from the typical spring prints and florals, and I really applaud that.
Dolce & Gabbana is the epitome of over the top fashion. Despite being completely ridiculous, D&G is always so well executed. There are quite obvious inspirations from Frida Kahlo in this collection and personally, I would have loved to see the models sporting unibrows! Even with that aside, her persona clearly shines through. Another thing that I was ecstatic about was the shoes. Not the big heels, but the tiny kitten heels and flats! Sky high heels are all the rage at the moment, so it was a breath of fresh air to see just the opposite. Don't get me wrong, I love a great pair of heels, but I can get tired of seeing something so many times.

I can always rely on Milan Fashion Week to tickle my fancy, but now I'm looking forward to what Paris has to bring! If you've been following me for a while, you should know who I'm looking forward to seeing ;) Out of curiosity, what collections have been your favorite so far and which ones are you excited to see?
