Primavera (or spring) officially starts today, March 1st is the meteological start of spring. It is a wonderful time of year when trees bloom, looking less baron and generally less dead. Grass gets its gloss back and there is the promise of wonder, new beginnings and obviously sun. However, from London to Milano it is officially still blooming cold!

Spring is the beginning of a new season, and I am talking conventional calendars. In the world of fashion, Spring/Summer begins in January as if you didn’t know. February is the time for fashion week, where designers showcase their next Autumn / Winter collections. That’s where I am, at the end of Milan Fashion Week AW16/17. It is a magical time of year.


Summer doesn’t officially start until June 1st which is a long time to wait. In the meantime what do we wear? I have compiled a few OOTD pics to give my interpretation of Primavera – I’m calling it My Spring in Milan, Italy; for inspiration when the weather is exceptionally non-compliant.

My favorite, in my limited wardrobe whilst in Italy going #casualchic. Navy Wool Jumper Autograph (M&S); Dark Skinny Jeans, GAP; Peach slingback Point Shoes, Autograph (M&S); Zara Leopard Blanket scarf draped on the side. The Cons on the side can fit in the DKNY bag I take everywhere, just in case.

Milan Fashion Week – Grinko

Milan Fashion Week, kicks off with the Sergei Grinko show. The opening catwalk by the humble, dressed in black designer was filled with wonder. Foliage on entrance, white walls and secret scrolls. There were men and women alike, frow and beyond with a very strong sense of self and an exceptional sense of style.


The show consisted of branded oversized beanies, branded oversized sleeves, and decorative structured backpacks. The goth chic ensembles were the memorable pieces or me.

I was particularly in support of the mixed prints and textures, velvet and natural fibers. The FROW sat in agreement and the round of applause confirmed his success.


The models did a great job showcasing the new designs, which I’m sure will contribute to the inspiration on many a shop floor come AW16/17.

For the debut show of Milano Moda Donna AW16/17, it was everything you hoped it would be. It was fashion. It was fabulous.
