All My Fashion Week Looks – The #MFW Edition
All the itty-bitty details in one place. Thank God for chilly-enough-for-a-jacket-but-not-cold-enough-for-thermals weather.| October 1, 2016
It was not until the entire Milan Fashion Week was over that I realised I had a colour theme going on with my outfits. Red, white, navy and purple subconsciously became my go-to colours. Not unlike last season’s looks, comfort was again at the centre of it all as evidenced by the many pairs of jeans and trousers that I was so glad to wear (these deconstructed Vetements jeans are steep, but I wear them to death). I must admit though – the comfort was mostly reserved for everything above the ankles.
Compared to last season where I had a few easy-pairing shoes on rotation, this one saw me lugging an entire luggage full of kicks halfway across the world. What can I say – shoes really are my drug. Even when they weren’t too kind to my feet. Those white patent Balenciaga boots (shop similar here), for example, are my shoe of the moment and I love them, but I’m not kidding when I say that they require a lot of work to walk in.
Funnily enough, the towering black platform boots that really are stilts in disguise rank pretty high in the comfort department (shop similar here). Who would have thought? As always, I had my Candy Bow Sandals (shop here) with me again. They really are the perfect shoes to wear if you need added height under too-long trousers or skirt. If you’ve been thinking about getting them, here’s your sign to add to cart.
In a strange coincidence, my favourite outfit of the Milan leg involves Gucci again, though it is Alessandro Michele’s Gucci this time. (The Gucci jacket I wore last season was by Frida Giannini.) It was so comfortable – jeans, low boots, oversized coat – but very Gucci at the same time without being outwardly so, you know? Indulge me for a second, but I love how all the details are at the back of the coat and shoes. As Refinery29 says – it is Madeline in the front and fun, fun, fun at the back.
