Milan - Autumn/Winter 2007-8, Day 4

Etro - Rather boring colors and prints. Older woman who likes to blend in.

Alberta Ferretti - Elllllegant work clothes. The day dresses are impeccable - classic but perfectly fitted. The evening - classic but with the right amount of dreamy - beaded/studded/furry/unprecious ruffling. Possibly perfect coats.

Jenny Packham - Minis and sequins and psychedelic Indian prints and thoroughly luscious satin - it would be hard not to get excited here. So much fun.

Bottega Veneta - Understated but obviously luxe work pieces and renaissance princess evening pieces.

Pollini - Rifat Ozbek - 80s Space Age. I feel like I'm viewing a Claude Montana show.

Prada - Long, lean, and loose. Loose shag carpeting sweaters, loose scrunched silk pencil skirts, double-breasted coat dresses (leather or wool). I'm not quite sure what to make of it. The standard ugly-pretty applies, and the silhouette is definitely comfortable, but polish (even a wrong sort) does not seem evident. I think this will take some getting used to.

6267 - The label everyone seems to be talking about has me thinking of Claude Montana again. This isnt a compliment. There are some winning dresses, however. I like the tailored bust looks.

Jil Sander - Austere and minimal, but with a hint of quirk (a cape here, lamé there).
