Milan - Spring/Summer 2007, the rest

Emilio Pucci - A more water-colored, muted version of the classic prints. A less day-glo palette, but still psychedelic - just milder. Thick satin rolled cuffs on pants and shorts, 70s beach chic silk jersey dresses - good for after-swim, and plastic geometric dresses that sometimes act as an overlay.

Dolce & Gabbana - It's not up on American Vogue and the pages are broken on British Vogue...I'll check back.

Fendi - Silver, black, and white. Short dresses and jackets. The chunky sweaters are gorgeous - I particularly like the knitted chain hems. Some bubble hems and thick statement belts.

Blumarine - Fussy, girly, extravagant, pretty, but with some hard-edged sexy glamour that keeps it from all being precious. Like a tougher Chanel girl.

DSquared2 - A Michael Kors-y American JetSet. Silk jersey slink, tight denim, big hair, man's shirting and tie prints.

Gianfranco Ferré - Sexy overall minis, blousy jackets, cropped jackets, kimono jackets...pajama-y trousers and the sexiest laces. Sexy sexy sexy.

Roberto Cavalli - A little YSL, a little Chanel, La Croix, Gucci...of course the collection is nice when you steal from the already successful.
