more milan, please
how to get inspired by the coolest collections at milan fashion week.
Ciao, Milano! It's been a great fashion week in Milan (as you might have noticed on our Instagram), but with the Giorgio Armani show this morning, the week of Italian fashion is over.
Don't be sad, though, we know just the way to keep the collections fresh in your mind until those Gucci Chelsea boots and Iceberg blazers hit shelves this fall. Just click through the slideshow to find out what to wear, beautify with, listen to, and watch to channel all the inspirations from Milan Fashion Week into your daily life. Che figo!
Ronald McDonald, Spongebob Squarepants, Coca Cola and Budweiser might not be what you think of when you think "high fashion," but leave it to Mr. Jeremy Scott to prove us all wrong. For his new collection, the designer transformed junk food into amazing sweaterdresses with winky slogans, purses that resembled Happy Meals, and even a flowing Budweiser gown modeled by Lily Mcmenamy. It was consumer culture at its coolest, and total Instagram bait. -- LIZA DARWIN, SENIOR WEB EDITOR
BEAUTIFY WITH: Lancome Eyeshadow Palette--$50
WATCH: Good Buger
LISTEN TO: "Kids In America" by Kim Wilde
With a name like "Iceberg," you'd better hope it would serve up plenty of cozy winterwear inspiration...and designer Alexis Martial did just that, in slouchy trousers, sweatshirts with chiffon overlays, and the fuzziest funnel fur collars imaginable. -- LIZA DARWIN
BEAUTIFY WITH: Guerlain Bubble Blush--$42
LISTEN TO: "Games" by Claire
The Gucci show was a tightly edited homage to the Chelsea look of London in the '60s complete with chubby furs, slim suits, and plastic framed aviator sunglasses--all in pastel hues. If anything could make fall and winter seem exciting, it's this collection. -- STEFF YOTKA, ASSOCIATE WEB EDITOR
BEAUTIFY WITH: Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint in Lots o'Lattes -- $16
LISTEN TO: "Victoria" -- The Kinks
WATCH: The Darjeeling Limited
If a sporty Italian woman inherited her grandmothers furs and repurposed them into her wardrobe of feathers, bright colors, and brogues, you'd get the Marni fall '14 collection. Eccentric, athletic, unexpected, and a little off-kilter, the show had just enough whimsy to be aspiration, but all the practical things (from turtlenecks to satchels) a modern girl needs. -- STEFF YOTKA
WEAR: Grenson Oxfords -- $625
BEAUTIFY WITH: Bumble and Bumble Texture Hair (Un)Dressing Creme -- $29
LISTEN TO: "Digital Witness" - St. Vincent
WATCH: I am Love
The Prada collection was an exploration in the '30s Germany, from the Art Deco prints that adorned the clothes to the opera music that accompanied the show. But like all things Prada, it wasn't a simple homage, it was a clever retooling of themes for a modern age. I'm in liebe. -- STEFF YOTKA
BEAUTIFY WITH: Lancome Hypnose Mascara -- $28.50
LISTEN TO: "Berlin" - Call Me Senor
