Statement Coats Spotted At Milan Fashion Week F/W 2016

Street Style

Milan Fashion Week only happens twice a year! If I could only attend one Fashion Week in the world it would come down to Milan VS Paris. Milan is home to the Italian fashion houses who show off their collections think Gucci, Prada, Moschino, Versace etc. And who can resist Italian fashion? Many of the shows take place in showrooms, or in studios but what makes Milan special is that sometimes shows can take advantage of the city’s outdoor landmarks. The Piazza Duomo located in Milan’s central square, or the courtyard of a 15th century castle- the Castello Sforesco, and the Arco della Pace located in Parco Sempione have all been the center of a few fashion shows in their time! These places let the public see the shows, so if you’re planning to travel to Milan during FW, check out these historical hot spots for fashion spotting.

Lilacs & Coffee Cups: Elena’s Italian Style

Privet Matryoshka’s If my blog ever featured a look of the day this surely would be one of the looks I’d include. I’m in love with the lilac theme she has going, from her lace up sandals (you can never go wrong with gladiator sandals in Italy, I should know I wore mine out in Rome but the pictures turned out lovely!!) to her loose and chunky sweater. Elena Perminova pays a great deal of attention to the details, and it shows in this feminine look.

An Umbrian Style Tale



Oh to be underneath the Umbrian sun is where I wish I were at this very moment. To be surrounded by a place of beauty, with mountains offering scenic sights, fresh air, and a land that yields foods a la crème de la crop. If I were there I too would probably be as inspired as ever, to dress in my favourite outfits so I could pose for photos all day long just like Elena.
