Young girls today are so conscious of their looks from top to bottom. There are also women who make it a point to keep track of the fashion trends so they won’t go out of style.[Read more…]
That’s the tagline of the Milan Fashion Week, which is in full swing as of this writing. The coverage is nothing but phenomenal, and it seems that the designers have gone out with all the ammunition that they have, even on the first day.
The main attractions of the first day’s show were the collections of Moschino and Dolce & Gabbana. According to Moschino, fashion is “full of chic.” The slogan was actually printed on canvas tote and was backed up by oversized jumpsuits decorated with daises. Oh so plum white ruffles and striped t-shirts reminiscent of candy colors also livened up things.
D&G, on the other hand, sparked a lot of interest with their cow girl line. Some models were showing off skin in pannier mini skirts. Others wore faded denim shirts and brown obi belts. Bottom line: the D&G show oozed sex appeal, which no one can ignore!
Blumarine’s line featured silk skirts and cotton knits. Colors were bursting – hot pink, lemon yellow, and lime. Tie-dye cloths were also present, adding to the plethora of colors that made for very nice eye candy. Designer Anna Molinari decided to take Jamaica to Milan with a rasta theme. Her tube dress in yellow, red, and green definitely took viewers to that island paradise.
Sportmax took the lingerie route, with padded bras serving as tops. They also made use of lace to soften up sports wear. Other features: garter belts on the hips of loose shorts and laced up corsets for blouses.
Needless to say, Milan Fashion Week is making waves.
Or the grunge decade (think Nirvana). Then there were the styles during the 90s were inspired by the 70s retro trend. Cargo pants were very popular and the color olive green in general.
Does anybody watch Two and a Half Men by any chance? Well, Charlie on the show is obsessed with bowling shirts, a trend that was in its peak during the 90s. Now, I think Charlie is the only one who wears them in the new millennium. I guess he never got the memo. The punk and gothic look made a big scene and to me, it was just scary. On the plus side, the 80s and 90s were the decades of the supermodel. Claudia, Naomi, Cindy and many others reinvented the fashion industry. It was the first time that models became celebrities.
Personally when I think of the 90s I think of young Kate Moss in her Calvin Klein ads with Mark Wahlberg…yummy
