MFW, SS13.

Paris Fashion Week is in full swing, and with Milan now complete, this post looks back at my favourite aspects from Italy; including monochrome magic at Gucci, look-at-me lace from Alberta Ferretti and Dolce & Gabbana showed us Sicily in its rawest form: potato sacks and raffia - yes, really!

The Dolce & Gabbana Show later attracted unwanted attention due to racist imagery.
(See the model's earrings - Azaelia Banks certainly picked up on it)

1. Gucci + Eveningwear = Perfection
Hollywood starlet and growing style icon, Emma Stone loves wearing Gucci on the red carpet and the SS13 runway show had plenty of options for any budding actress to wow in the fashion stakes. From white shift dresses with ornate coral jewellery, to high-necked ruffled evening gowns. There was even a nod to London Fashion Week as vivid animal prints showed us why Gucci remains one of the sexiest labels in town.
2. Libidinous Lace
Perhaps best known for her floaty evening dresses, Alberta Ferretti mixed it up this season with incredibly sexy pastel lace designs with sheer panelling giving the illusion of (almost) bare skin. On the whole, the collection was very ethereal - true to Ferretti's signature style, however the almost mermaid quality of the pieces really brought something new to Milan.
3. Homegrown talent
Italian design duo Dolce & Gabbana have clearly been influenced by the Sicilian way of living for their SS13 collection. Raffia corsets and potato sack mini dresses made up a large amount of the collection. Along with their signature, calf length dressed with capped sleeves. The inventive use of fabric is what really caught my attention and I think you'll agree, we've never wanted a potato sack more!
