Paris fashion week is in full swing, therefore fashion month is nearly over.  While the editors and buyers push through the final days of a busy, exciting and exhausting month, we're taking a minute to look back at our Milan Fashion Week favorites. 

Unlike New York Fashion Week, there doesn't seem to be a clear trend running through all the collections, which makes for more interesting viewing and a more versatile closet come Fall.

Les Copains:

They got the 70's memo at Les Copains, with lots of flared wool trousers and billowy chiffon blouses.  But this collection is far from boho - with oversized jewels and luxe fabrics - it's glamorous, like 70's icon Bianca Jagger.

Max Mara:

Never one to disappoint when it comes to outerwear, this collection from Max Mara is full of luxurious and oversized wool, fur and quilted winter coats referencing Marilyn Monroe and 1950's glamour.  The theme is taken even further with cat eye glasses, beautiful wool wiggle skirts and oversized sweaters.  The tasseled loafers are both on theme and modern at the same time.

M Missoni:

Shanghai and it's bright lights and late nights was the inspiration for the latest collection from M Missoni.  As usual, it's youthful and colorful with a strong use of Missoni knits.  We can see the Asian flare through the use vibrant colors and traditional Chinese details.

Piazza Sempione:

Totally modern and totally beautiful, the Fall collection from Piazza is full of clean lines and a balance of neutral and rich colors.  The influence of the fine art world can be seen in the sleek styling and painterly prints.

Once again we're feeling inspired and invigorated by the Fall collections and we're eager to see what Victoria and Haley have in store for us here!
