Dear Filep and iDEALS,
Sveglia! Sveglia! I have a tight schedule ahead with six fantastic guys waiting for me. Room 137 at the Carlton Hotel Baglioni is hosting Burak Uyan, a German Paris-based designer, whose eponymous shoe label guarantees designs inspired by architecture mixed with a high dose of glam. For the next season, according to the words of Burak Uyan, his collection is likely to have an even prouder and stronger allure, of medieval inspiration, continuing his exploration of Art Deco elements. The leathers have undergone a treatment to present a primitive aspect, evoking Isam Noguchi's sculptures.
Somewhere on the way, I met Fausto Puglisi, the most chatted designer of the past 15 days, the man responsible for dressing up MIA and Nicki Minaj at the Super Bowl during Madonna's half-time performance, and for designing the deep placket on Belen Rodriguez's dress at Sanremo's.
Then there's the sportswear brand from the Antwerp Six...
Dirk Bikkembergs and his designer Paola Toscano return with a bright and colorful women line and the same bright colors can be found at the Vogue talents corner.
Well, are these fantastic new comers enough? Of course not.Today was Miuccia Prada's day. La Signora, the undiscussed Queen of Milan fashion week, rocked as usual. Prada's 700 sq meters space offered an Opera setting with a white and violet carpet serving as background for tons of full-bodied precious tailleurs and 3D retro suits.
I don't really know much about it, what I do know is that Raf Simons will exit the brand on February 27. The consequence: I can't wait to see his last show on Saturday. Nighty night...
