Milan - Autumn/Winter 2007-8, Day 1-3

Schumacher - Smart separates and dresses. Utterly wearable and put together without over-detailing or preciousness.

D&G - Micro-leopard print and slouchy tuxedos. Not the usual overtly sexual, more buttoned up 60s with bow-front high-necked blouses, Chanel-esque belted minidresses, and lotsa polkadots. Unnervingly nice.

La Perla - Adorable tiered/banded skirts and ultra-form-fitting waists. The tailored looks work a lot better than the drapey freeforms.

Giorgio Armani - Less boring than usual. Puffed skirts and sleeves still seem a little old, but the satin 30s coats are perfection. The fishnet sleeves are sexy and provide a youthfulness that is usually missing.

Just Cavalli - Too much eurotrash cheesy sexy. Like a bad D&G, but with exaggerated shoulders and a fake toughness. Plus, the world's worst mens looks.

Maurizio Pecoraro - 30s tunics, hats, hair, makeup. So chic, but classically dramatic.

Burberry Prorsum - The hardest, edgiest, military jackets. Sexxxy dresses that are borderline scary. Bondage, belts, gloves, and boots. Studded platform sandals. Definitely gorgeous, but are you tough enough to pull it off?

Pringle of Scotland - Grown-up full pleated skirts - nothing cute about them. Perfect, plus pockets! I could wear these dresses everyday.
