MFW, Day 1

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Transitioning between London and Milan seems to be the smoothest part of my Fashion month, every season. It's like actually catching a break from all of that Fashion Week madness, especially with London being slightly more chaotic than Milan ;) Do not get me wrong, I love the energy of LFW and there is nothing that suits more my lifestyle and personality than a busy schedule in an extra-busy city, that said, for some reason, Milan simply is more tidy, methodical. There is a reason for everything that happens in Milan; no fuss, no moss !

For my first day at MFW, I wore this snake print twinset from Sinequanone, courtesy of my friends at Wilshire Fashions in Montreal. I love me a good matching ensemble and this silky duo happened to be just what I had in mind for Milan. I find it is very reminiscent of the 1970's Italian era in all its glory. At the time, Fashion Week was held only twice a year and lasted a couple of days in the Fashion capital that was (and still is!) Milan. Paris was on its way, three short years later…

It may sound funny but what really made me fall for this dress was the camel leather halter collar; I have a thing from neutral details. Plus, I had the perfect pair of Go-go-like suede boots, rounded square oversized sunnies and camel leather handbag to complete my look. The 1970's are famous for many things when it comes to Fashion. Among them, the glamour wear and tailored style stood out strongly during the decade, with boots at the height of their popularity, becoming the accessory of the hour. Despite the widespread boho vibes, loads of girls would opt for a more elevated style inspired by 1940's movie star glamour.

The only thing missing here would be more volume in my hair. Yes, yes, big hair is a thing too ;)
