These two labels exemplify what Italian style is all about in such a pure way, that Milan Fashion Week could just have them and Versace do shows and it would be enough. Sexy, luxe, embellished, with flowing, loose silhouettes along side figure hugging pieces, this is how the Italians define sexy for the world of fashion as a whole.
Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2015
With over 80 looks, this collection is full of very wearable pieces as well as some beautifully encrusted signature items like corsets, purses, shoes, and even crowns. Influenced by Spanish flamenco dancers, this show was all about rich reds, flounces, flowers, lace, fringe and dramatic eye makeup.
Emilio Pucci Spring 2015
Pucci is all about the low slung on the hips, floating away from the body, long lean lines with beautiful patterns and earth tones. This collection brought out some of the biggest names in modeling like Naomi Campbell, Mariacarla Boscono and Saskia de Brauw, models who have the confident, bold vibe that these pieces require.
Phillip Plein Spring 2015
This is a less established label, but it fits in perfectly with the excessiveness of MFW. Circle skirts, party dresses, sequins, motorcycle style vests, bright colors and an overall feeling of playfulness make this a bold diversion from a lot of the muted sensibilities in other Spring collections.
