Milan - Autumn/Winter 2006-2007, cont cont

Emporio Armani-
Pretty textured suits - either with ruffles, pleats, or alternating fabric stripes. Very formal, but confidently sexy.

Disco, jet-set, a little sleazy. In case you were wondering, now's the time for perfect legs. All about draping and leanness.

Jenny Packham-
Grown-up and vampy glamour gowns, with a slight dusty vintage edge to them.

Jil Sander-
Yawn. Dont waste your time.

Similarly tunic-styled dresses, jackets, and blouses; wide-legged trousers; boxy cropped jackets with 3/4 length sleeves. A very proper collection with enough "off"-ness to make it totally wearable and covetable.

Prim dresses and coats, with the occasional nip of a waist or flash of skin. I'm thinking you cant go wrong with little 60s/70s hostess dresses (well, would that ever be wrong?).

Pollini-Rifat Ozbek-
You cant say you feel a 60s vibe here, these are full-on vintage dresses. That said, I love them and I love the prints and matching boots.

Structured pieces, but not too formal. More naturally pretty than previous collections, but also a bit tougher. These cool girls know what's going on, and they definitely know it more than you.

Salvatore Ferragamo-
Love the brown tights, blue shoes, green gloves. So unexpected in color, but classic and cool in shape.
