Sportmax Catwalk Fashion Show Milan 2011
The Sportmax fashion show on the second day of Milan Fashion Week had something in it for every woman. The many outfits represented looks that were chic, sharp and sexy. Or like the show notes said ‘A new elegance inspired by the petite parisienne of ‘Les demoiselles de Rochefort’.
The bright colors and playful dresses from that specific sixties movie were indeed visible throughout the whole collection. Lemon yellow, red, magenta and white being the main shades, alternated by several denim looks.
There was a lot of variation in fabric and shape. Patent leather coats and blouse collars were mixed with romantic lace-like fabrics, organza and crepe de chine. The dresses were A-line shaped as well as body-tight (with cutouts) and always ended above the knee.
On several transparent dresses and tops small butterflies were attached. They looked graceful and perfect for summer, yet also reminded us of the Claes Iversen collection we saw three weeks ago in Holland. The Dutch designer had butterflies all over his dresses as well. So that might just be the next big fashion trend…
The show ended with some sequined looks and a few designs with colorful graphic prints. It was not the most cohesive Sportmax collection we’ve seen, but there’s no doubt the modern woman won’t find anything she likes for upcoming summer.
