Salvatore Ferragamo - Creative director Massimiliano Giornetti definitely had the tropics on his mind when creating the Ferragamo ss 12 collection. With an array of mixed combinations of animal prints, vivid colors and floral patterns, the presentation illustrated a sleek and sexy Ferragamo woman with form-fitting silhouettes, high slits, cut outs, and old Hollywood glamour hair. No tropical ensemble isn't complete with exotic bags to match so Giornetti accessorized his looks with maxi-bags made of Nappa leather and crocodile maxi-clutches. Overall great collection in my opinion. View the entire collection here.

Dolce & Gabbana - With the dismissal of their sister brand, D&G, Stefano and Dominico brought out an equally as strong collection for their main line. Their ss 12 collection presented feminine and sexy pieces adorned with fruit and veggie prints, crystal embellished bodices, floral prints, incredible lace/eyelet and twill suits in shades of orange, light blue, and soft green. Just like the past ss 12 collection I've seen, the Dolce & Gabbana collection continues to prove how strong statement earrings and tummy showing bustiers/bandeaus are as a trend for it's season.

Emilio Pucci - I've always been a Pucci "girl" at heart. Sexy, feminine, and fashion forward all at the same time. I love how there always seems to be a subtle fetish or kinky undertone to Peter Dundas' creations. In my opinion, the collection was inspired by Rock and Roll/gypsy glamour with sheer skirts, lace embroidered blouses, big ruffles, waist-tied sashes and shoulder & tummy bearing tops. I love the printed shirt and slid grey bermuda shorts; sexy and still sophisticated. THe presentation showcased a variety of colors with focus on white, red, and black and a myriad of 70's inspired prints. Gwyenth Paltrow was lucky enough to get her hands on one of the ss 12 pieces and rocked it at the 2011 Emmy's a few weeks ago. View the entire collection here.

Sportsmax - Probably the most sportswear inspired collection I've seen during the ss 12 Milan shows, but also the most minimal in a sense. All the previous Milan shows I've mentioned as favorites donned consistent prints, patterns, and vivid colors, but I loved how refreshing and minimal (but still a twist of prints), the collection was for Sportsmax. With a youthful mix form-fitting silhouettes and slouchy outwear pieces, the Sportmax girl exuded confidence and a subtle tone of sexiness. The presentation focused on pastel colors in blue, pink, and purples, but also included neutrals in white, beige, grey and black. I thought the knits were impeccable, and I enjoyed how the prints complimented the solid pieces and we're the main attraction of the collection. Just like Vera Wang and Mulberry's ss 12 collections, Sportmax used drawstring details, which will be a trend for the season. View the entire collection here.
