Besides Prada and Versace, out come eight designer labels that are as hot as flames in the Milan fashion week fall / winter 2012-2013 season. These names aren’t fresh to the ears but their ranges are definitely eye candy and eye-popping with trends ready to take over every woman’s wardrobe in a jiffy. Thanks to the perplexing shows on Milan fashion week, it was easy to pinpoint which collections stood out to be the top praiseworthy and anticipating.
Sexed up is what you call Pucci after seeing an array of seemingly never-ending galore of fashionable leather, thick fur, robust slits, innovative cut-outs and teasing sheers. Peter Dundas made it not too skin-revealing but sexy enough to show a little bit of flesh in figure-flattering tight frocks, solid prints and top to bottom nude looks.

Gucci got glum for fall / winter 2012-2013 but its Frida Giannini’s best range took inspiration from 19th century romanticism and spelled it on stylish capes, fierce slouch pants, high collar and flimsy gowns in hues of the classic black and deep burgundy, green and purple. This time, she makes Gucci more sensuous, moving and off the wilder, sexual path.

What proved to be Etro’s strength is how trends become more voguish in every range such as fall / winter 2012-2013’s peplum skirts and shiny and sheer fabrics. Veronica Etro conforms to the hourglass range and brings about a noble look on her up and coming pieces as peplums are pushed to the limit with belts to heap up the hips and give a more womanly look, with paisley prints.

Feathers also decorate the shoulders. Crystals studded on belts and brooches. Skirts are made of shredded chiffon.

No reason not to lose Dolce&Gabbana’s fall /winter 2012-2013 collection. The famous fashion house re-captured the character of an Italian woman with the inspiration of Sicilian Baroque. Shapes don’t emphasize figures at all, unlike how D&G was mentioned in the Black Eyed Peas Song “My Humps”. Still, the look is sexy, chic and luxurious. Additionally, capes, superb gold accoutrements, lace, prints and a dramatic black veil gave quite an astounding show.

Fun, youthful and edgy – the signature “bag girl gone good” look at DSquared once again mark the runways. This time, the Canadian partners preferred a traditional prom night with disco ball, faint lighting and some 60’s feel with a sign that says “Class 2013”. Nevertheless, the garments aren’t everyday clothes at all. Instead, it was more like popular girls in the campus making fashion statements with naughty pencil skirts, easy going layered below sweaters. Models puffing up cigarettes on the show didn’t indicate saintly school girls but it’s a great collection all the same.

Marni stunned viewers with a neat silhouette that drew the boundary betwixt minimal and maximal styles. A kind of austere and organized classiness was very feminine. Statements on clothes have become blunt, yet somehow under wraps which made the fall / winter 2012/2013 collection beautiful.

Raf Simons gave an excellent last show on the Jil Sander catwalk with a line of brisk coats and lovely dresses in pastel hues. To increase feistiness, Simons utilized metallic appliqués and cut-outs. Sexy, minimalistic, bold and simple, one can definitely tell these qualities were faultlessly combined which caused a major, major applause.
