On the Street….via Alserio, Milan

Fashion week has really taken off in Milan.  The street looks are great and the runways are inspiring.


Marni, Ferragamo, and Jil Sander were all strong collections.  I promise to lock myself in my hotel room tonight to work on those images.


The men’s shot I will post later today is also really great, one of my favorites from Milan in a while.

    Not so crazy about the combination but certainly a great picture!

    Such a pretty mix of different styles!

    I love her! She is so quaint and pretty! My favourite detail is the polka dot socks; I think every outfit should have an element of surprise, and that’s it on her.

    That dress is amazing! I like how all of it has a vintage feel.

    I could not agree with you more. Did you see the Versus show last night? Quite brilliant.

    she is a diamond in the rough.


    September 26, 2011 at 10:11 am

    What an amazing outfit! I love everything!

  16. Giada

    September 26, 2011 at 10:14 am

    In my opinion, this outfit is a total failure…there’s no concordance between the print of the dress and the one of the socks, mixed with blue sandals…

    It’s a lovely picture, but I just don’t like this outfit. She’s swimming in the dress and the socks/shoes, though they’d be great with another outfit, really don’t work here.

    Great combination! love the two prints from the dress to the socks!

    she would look much more feminine without the socks. I really think that so much mixing ends to be wird.

    Cute socks
    but why is everyone dressing like yesterday :(

    wow,she makes this dress actually look good… the socks and sandals

    no, no, no.
    the woman before with the white pull it’s just g-r-e-a-t. this it’s the opposite: just a doll with a wrong and big dress.

    It’s a very interesting blend of eclectic and darling. Definitely a look that causes you to stop and look twice.

    To me, the socks are a blatant refusal.

    Yes, a refusal as in:

    Why conform to the expectations of fashion society?
    Why not wear socks?

    Now, the collar, on the other hand, gives me pause because it kind of reminds me of Baptist Sunday School in a Midwestern -American town, prim and proper.

    Still, there is something about the totality of this look and the vintage appeal it offers, that works on many levels.

    And the novelty of the sunglasses, coupled with the sheen of the clutch bag pulls this look together.

    @Giada, concordance is boring. if this blonde girl is italian, there’s an hope beyond blonde random salad.

    Those socks are so amazing! They go very well with her shoes! :)

    Italian fashion has always been amazing, although Swedish/Stockholm style is uncomparable from Milano, take a look at my blog and you’ll find typical swedish styles:

    she reminds me of a modern, italian dorothy.

    Nice dress. She should have tried knee high boots instead of these bobby socks-sandals.

    I lvoe this Rodarte dress, the print and the colors are so so cool!

    That’s an amzing look – love how the hair is kind of laissez faire whilst the clothes are really quirky and surely thought out somehow. Bravo!

    She looks as if she is straight from The Sound Of Music. Don’t like it. The sunglasses are nice.

    Nice pic, but I don’t like the look. Too sophisticated it ends up to be haphazard.

    I love the shoes and the anklets…oh to have the legs for that look. Personally I love anklets with a skin tight skirt, to 180 the good girl and the bad….but the “good girl” dress in this photo grew on me.

    i love the shoes matched with the socks, she looks so cute!
    can’t wait to see more milan pics!

    Not only does she wear that hideous print with elegance…she has the most interesting expression on her face….!!

    The dress is interesting, the socks not so much. I don’t get why women like to wear ankle socks with skirts. Even as a child I loathed the look of ankle socks…

    I have such a soft spot for shoes & socks in just about any combination, not to mention so much easier on your feet than rubbing skin & leather.

    This is beautiful! I love the dress and the collar, I’m a sucker for peter pan frill collars! And also the spotty socks and heels, you can’t come across a better look. Love this, reminds me of my own style!

    How gloriously odd! Another of those “it so doesn’t work that it works” looks. The dress is also quite lovely in & of itself–the print is great and the neo-monastic cut is graceful.

    Crazy outfit, but I bet she has a big enough personality to match it

    How could you not be head over heels in love with this outfit (and her)? The polka-dotted socks are to die for

  66. Cassandra

    September 27, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    The print is a little overwhelming for me. Sort of swallows her doesn’t it? Love the shoes and socks though!

    Unique and different outfit and look. However the model definitely manages to pull it off. Loving the shoes.

    Today someone said as I was passing by “Socks and heels, ugh”. Then I came here later and I thought damn. Why should I care.

    Not liking the dress pattern and shape at all. Love the “socks and heels” though as well as the photo.
