As promised this is what I did during Milan Fashion Week : a few shows, a few presentations and a lot of eating.

My highlight of Milan Fashion week was definitely the Gucci show. As i told you in my previous post, it was such an honor to be at such an important show.

Those below are some pictures of the show but the quality is not that good. You can see below for better picture of the collection:

I think that what I preferred, was to go to the Gucci showroom where i could see the clothes from very close, touch them and even try a few pieces from the Fall/Winter 2013 Collection.

The collection was very femme fatale.

But my favorite part of the collection are the evening gowns. So spectacular! I was wondering if someone would wear one of those evening gowns at the Oscar on Sunday but unfortunately not.

This blue coat is ma favorite piece of the collection.

And I also loved the accessories. Those vintage look alike school bags for example!

And those mirrored sunglasses are really great too. Never though mirrored sunglasses would stay a trend that much. But it seems they do. And despite what I have say before; i might buy those as soon as they come in store!! Don’t you think they fit me well?!

2- The Blugirl Fashion show

My 2 favorite dresses of the collection. Romantic and bohemian chic!

3 – The Furla Presentation

Those famous Candy Bags got a warmer color for Fall/Winter 2013

My favorite “Candy Bag”. Nice for everyday and big enough to put my camera in it!

For the weekend I could totally imagine wearing those furry bags!! I think it’s a big trend for Fall/Winter 2013; I have seen those furry bags everywhere!

4 – The Aigner fashion show

As you can see furry bags are everywhere, here at the Aigner show!

5 – Food!
Spaghetti al Cartoccio!! Best meal i have eaten in Italia!!! Bread + Spaghetti + Seafood!

Dinner with Vicky & Sarah

Aperitivo! Salami I am addicted!!

6 – Parties
At the Pinko X Vogue Event

Also Franca Sozzani, editor in chief at Vogue Italia was at the Pinko X Vogue event!!

At the Grazia Italia Party the same evening

7 – The Persol Reflex Presentation

I had so much fun trying on those sunglasses with Renรฉ from Styleranking. The Persol reflex Edition collection is lovely, absolutely my style. A touch vintage and inspired by analog cameras.
The sunglasses are already available now!!

8 – The Phlipp Plein show
I couldn’ take much pictures as it was veryyyy crowded but those below are the press pictures of the show so that you can have a little glimpse into what happened.

Grace Jones, YES!! GRACE JONES!! opened the fashionshow!

And those 2 looks are my favorite looks of the collection that was very sexy and dark. I dream of wearing one of those knits, see the shoulders!!!!!

On Day 4 i also had the chance to go backstage at Tommy Hilfiger where I have seen my favorite model Jordan Dunn. Also Cara Delevingne was there but there i wasn’t lucky enough to catch her do one of her famous funny face.

The collection was really similar the the men collection I have seen a few days before, with lots of houndstooth and prince of Wales checks. Tommy Hilfiger created a classic preppy look but with a rock’n'roll touch .

I am a huge fan of the accessories also. The shoes and bags were chic and beautiful and i could imagine wear them on a daily basis!

Saturday started with the Lacoste show at the Lincoln Center. Right afterwards I went to the Lacoste Showroom where i spent a big part of the afternoon having a look at the Fall/winter collection that was showed the same morning.
This collection signs the 80 Anniversary of the brand and for the occasion, Felipe Oliveira Baptista gave the brand a fresh wind. The collection was more futuristic with a mix of materials and texture, colors such as orange, green, white, and grey and an original print

I had a big crush on the accessories. I didn’t even know that Locoste was doing jewelry (since 2 years) but I loved the crocodile necklace and armband from the Lacoste L!ve Fall/Winter 2013 collection that will be available online from July 2013.
The camera bags and motorcycle gloves were also one of my highlight.

After this we (Maurizio and I) had a very quick walk in Central Park but as we had to walk on a slippery ground we turned away very quickly. I will return the next days when it won’t be so dangerous.

To finish the day we went to the Project Runway cocktail where we had a great view over New York by Night. The cocktail wasn’t that interesting though, and of course Heidi Klum wasn’t there.

On this day i wore the same sweater than the day before ( no, no I am not ashamed) from Asos, a skirt from Asos, as well as a coat from Asos, my vintage hat and my Zara ankle boots.

I am afraid i am a bit slow updating the blog with all New York Fashion Week News but as you can imagine, i am pretty busy and for once i prefer spend time doing things outside in the cold as in front of my computer ;)

On day 2, so Friday, a big snow storm was announced and as planned the weather was pretty bad. No snow but a lot of rain during the morning and the afternoon so that it was just not possible to do something outside. I decided to catch up with a friend of mine from Switzerland who is visiting her boyfriend in New York those days. We decided to go to the theater and watch a 3D movie. We choose to watch Top Gun with Tom Cruise and eat popcorn with lots of liquid butter! The movie wasn’t bad at all and I even recommend you to download the movie soundtrack somewhere as it is full of really great 80′s tracks!!!

After this i went to see the Tommy Hilfiger Men show on the Upper East Side (almost felt like Serena from Gossip Girl ;) ). I was wearing : A sweater from Asos, a pants from sara and shoes from Mango from the summer 2012 collection.

The Tommy Hilfiger show was great. The location looked like an old library. Boys were wearing timeless pieces with prince of wales and houndstooth prints. I personally had a big crush on the bags and on the bomber and motorcycle jackets that gave the collection a rock’n'roll touch.

After the show i went with Maurizio from Mau Fashion to eat a burger at five Guys? Really a place i recommend if you go to New York for cheap but tasty burgers. After dinner we went to a game center close to our hotel in case the storm would arrive suddenly. The storm wasn’t a storm though. Just lots of rain and snow but i know worse from Berlin!!

So this is what i wore today, for my first show at New York Fashion Week (very 70′s with my Kaleidoskop print Dress) : Nicholas K. I wore my coat off just for the picture of course as it is freezing!!! And this is just the beginning as they say the biggest snow storm New York have ever seen will arrive on Friday :S

Anyway with 2 pair of tights and by swapping my heels with my Ugg Boots for sightseeing everything is ok.

Late i will try to post my impression of my first day of fashion week. But now I am off to the La Perla Presentation.

I am wearing :
Hat : Vintage
Staring at Stars Dress : Urban Outfiters
Shoes : Zara

On Friday I went backstage to see Zoe Ona’s collection. Zoe Ona is a newcomer brand at Berlin Fashion Week and the story of the brand is fascinating to me. Andrada Ona was once a doctor and gave up a brilliant career for working in the hard business of fashion. This is something i extremely respect as I think most of people would never take a risk like that.

A new career seems to start very well though. I really loved the collection, very girly chic, and with bright colors.

Below you can see a few pictures i took backstage and my three favorite outfits of the collection.

Andrada for Ona’s life is as a designer and founder of the brand ZOE ONA already. their second career and her third world life 2010 she gave up her career as a doctor in order to devote themselves to their passion for fashion and their brand concept for ZOE ONA implement. It describes itself as a “fashion person” who always dreamed of implementing a personal style, but also as a “learned realist” who knows the demands of their careers, the importance of careful planning for the success of demanding schedules. Your quality of experience is also clear that the big picture is mainly a matter of details.

I discover Barre Noire last season when the brand presented it’s collection for the first time at Berlin fashion Week. It was my favorite collection as the clothes but also the atmosphere during the show was girly and fun something i haven’t seen before at Berlin Fashion Week before.

This time again Barre Noire was the show I couldn’t wait to see. What Tim Suessbrich did for this season was as good as last season, wich i think is difficult to achieve after such a great start last season.

Below you can see how the Fall/Winter 2013 collection looks like, very bright and with lots of prints.
