Blugirl brings romance and femininity to MFW
Blugirl put on a ladylike display for the first day of Milan Fashion Week.
Fashion Month moved over to Italy on Wednesday (24Feb16), with Milan picking up shortly after London Fashion Week came to a close.
Elegance and femininity were the order of the day on Blugirl's runway, with models channelling glamour from a bygone era as they strutted down the catwalk. High neck ruffles and delicate lace put a fresh spin on the Elizabethan era, with one model embodying the look completely in a black lace dress, complete with a high collar and a sheer slip worn over the dress. Woollen white tights and pink fluffy shoes finished the outfit off.
The pastel-coloured furry footwear was a staple throughout the show, adding some fluffy frivolity to proceedings. The shoes appeared in black as well.
Floral prints featured heavily, which only added to the romanticism of the collection. Soft shades of creams, greys and pinks seen on the pretty fabrics meant the dream-like feel didn't go unnoticed.
Black was utilised alongside the girly colour palette, but never appeared too harsh thanks to the lightweight fabrics used, such as lace and tulle. Python print was paired with floral covered garments, adding a little edge to the Autumn/ Winter 16 line.
Grinko also presented its new collection, with a much edgier take on winter fashion. The army of models all sported blunt haircuts, with ruler straight fringes bringing a uniformed look to the show.
The fashion house channelled more of a street-meets-high fashion vibe, with models wearing baggy clothes holding rucksacks.
Black leather was worked into a lot of outfits, and it looked particularly striking when used against sheer black fabrics.
Dark colours and heavy materials like wool, teamed with long trench coats, signalled a more subdued trend prediction for the colder months.
Both men and women walked, with a lot of the designs interchangeable between the sexes.
Some of Milan's biggest hitters are showing later today, with Gucci, Alberta Ferretti and Roberto Cavalli all taking centre stage.
