Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2010

Who: Versace
What it made us think of: Pam Grier as one of Charlie's Angels
What we liked: shoes, coats, metallic
What we didn't: patchy pants, knits, the asymmetricality was too haphazard
Who: Marni
What it made us think of: Class eccentric circa 1965.
What we liked: beautiful use of color combinations, shoes, glasses, fat bead necklaces (easily picked up at Goodwill), classic bags in pretty colors
What we didn't: awkward shorts, boxy silhouettes with boxier pelpums, predominantly ugly shorts. Most of the prints were too graphic for my taste.Who: Prada
What it made us think of: Sophie Loren shopping in Edinburgh.
What we liked: The 60s Italy vibe, shoes, buttons, leather, nubby knits, beehives, skirted coats. Prada, a major supporter of the size zero ideal, put some curvier models on the runway along side their usual pre-pubescent waifs.
What we didn't: I jumped for joy because I thought I saw a plus size model too. No, the dress just made a lovely size 4 model look like a lovely size 14 model. Miuccia, you either need to do some major tailoring or feed the other models.
