Video: Cathy Horyn's Spring 2012 Report Milan

Saturday, October 1, 2011

Ms. Horyn's intrinsic eye focuses on modern day Milan and the references of the past in the Spring collections

In my opinion (and further to the musings I made after the New York Report), the Italians do sportswear (or the new "sport" trend) like no one else has (or can), and this season's presentations further drive this point. There were so many references to the feel-good of the 50's and 60's of La Dolce Vita that, I feel, will be a trend unto itself created and executed by the Italians for everyone else. The pitch perfect candy colors in soft hues evoke Spring, again, like no one else has shown in NY or London. Ms. Horyn's observation of "cinematic" feelings running through many collections I agree with wholeheartedly. There really is a strong reference to images of cinema in the Milan collections that each look becomes a picture of Sophia Loren or Anita Ekbert or even Brigitte Bardot. And in true form, Milan brought cinematics to the runways, with DSquared doing it tongue-in-cheek style, with mud to remind us that fashion really is dirty, no matter how you clean it up.
