Milan Fashion Week: Spring/Summer 2012 Favorites part one

Iceberg - This collection is so far one of my favorite ss 12 shows in Milan. The collection showed a variety of menswear inspired pieces mixed with well tailored trousers, skimpy bandeaus, striped mesh tops, intricately crocheted separates (which we're probably my favorite), jumpsuits, stripes, and sequins. I thought Paolo Gerani, creative director of Iceberg presented a strong presentation with his creations. The accessories from the belts, shoes, and bags we're also beautiful. Pure chicness in my opinion. View the entire collection here.

D&G - Although Dominico & Stefano stated that this was their last collection for the sister brand of their household label, I thought their final presentation was incredibly strong. I loved the the prints, which is fair to say because of the history of D&G's expertise in prints. The presentation showcased a lovely range from pants, skirts, dresses, shirts, and even a double breasted denim suit. Not a huge fan of the shoes, but I thought the jewelry was absolutely stunning and complimented the collection very well. Will you be grabbing a piece of D&G''s final collection before it goes buh bye? Can't wait to see the mens collection. View the entire collection here.

Prada - Miuccia Prada never disappoints and after a very VERY strong collection last spring, I think Miuccia did a very good job in delivering another great spring collection. This season the creative director used several themes of the 1950's with vintage automobile and floral prints along with flame motifs. The collection illustrated classic Prada shapes with bulky coats, wide shoulders, and pleated knee high skirts. Miuccia also included bandeaus in her collection, which I'm predicting will be another trend for the season. The earrings we're incredible and I think that jewelry mainly earrings will be a strong trend for the ss 12 season; chandeliers, tear drops, oh my! A standout collection for sure.

Etro - Utilizing signature prints and patterns, Etro unveiled a modern 1920's silhouette with cut outs in it's collection. This season, it seemed like Etro turned down the prints and combined more solids in both black and white, which in my opinion is refreshing. The presentation wasn't drowning in prints and patterns, but more complimented or emphasized by it. The touch of fringe was also great, because I haven't seen the Italian house do fringe in a long time. View the entire collection here.
