FAVOURITE MILAN SHOWS

It’s always interesting to discover each season what a vast array of inspiration designers can play on. For Dolce & Gabbana, it was the graceful elegance of the Mamma (or Maman, as most of the inscriptions on the clothes were in French), complete with dimpled bambino on her arm – but obviously no Bugaboo pushchair in sight. At Philosophy, Lorenzo Serafini’s take on romanticism is all ruffles and flowing blouses, with that denim edge favoured by Brooke Shields, the collection’s main muse. Eye-popping colors streamed down the runway at MSGM, while Marco de Vincenzo’s textured silhouettes got us all wishing for those technicolor sunglasses to brighten up our days. Tales of folklore were spun by ace designer Stella Jean, who, inspired by « multicultural crossovers », added embroidered Himalayan capes to denim and tweed. And, predictably, Miuccia did it again: pastel hues, opera gloves, Perspex brooches, fur stoles and kitten heels make up the wardrobe of the ultimate modern débutante at another glorious Prada show.

FAVOURITE LONDON SHOWS

London designers have definitely chosen to look on the bright side of life : playing with textures and tones at Mary Katrantzou (that baby blue plastic ruffle!), optical prints at Jonathan Saunders and a major eighties revival complete with metallic jacquards and oversized mismatched earrings (we predict a sell-out) at J.W. Anderson. Our favourite looks have to be the drawings featured on Christopher Kane‘s silhouettes : if the nudes make for a definite art school vibe, we’re loving the elegant profiles sewn on to simple shift dresses and skirts – a bit surrealist, a bit Monsieur Saint Laurent, and very chic.

FAVOURITE NEW YORK SHOWS

Spring is only just round the corner, but the latest New York collections (almost) make us yearn for the cooler days again… Can you really blame us : one look at the vibrant polonecks at J.Crew or the “cool-girl-with-a-biker-boyfriend” leather jackets at Coach and we’re on board. And if all that is teamed with the sleek seventies look at Derek Lam or, at the other side of the spectrum, the pop art world of Spanish brand Delpozo, we’re a completely hopeless case. Sorry, spring!

STAR BOOTIES BY TOMMY HILFIGER

What better way to start the week than with a pair of amazing shoes ?

Major love for these Tommy Hilfiger star-embossed ankle boots from the spring-summer 15 collection – who would have known that the king of preppy would come up with such a rockstar piece ? A cross between a 70′s groupie vibe and David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust, we at Please! think these metallic leather booties would look just as good on our feet than put up on a shelf for all to admire…
