Milly

It was pouring rain at the Missoni show (sob!). Luckily, the clouds parted for a couple minutes and allowed us to capture a couple of stunning looks, including Ruya’s. She is perfectly poised and elegant in her beaded coat and metallic lace skirt. Pointed-toe flats are a popular new theme, and these patent leather slingbacks are the ultimate in feminine chic.

The moto jacket lives on for yet another season! Genre-mixing looks are known as molto popolare in Milan. I love the way Fabritzia paired her biker jacket with femme florals and a full skirt. Studded Valentino flats are the perfect match to this tough/ladylike look. A small lilac handbag adds a hint of color and even more feminine flair.

Denisia’s outfit mixes the New Model Army trend with menswear themes. I am all about military inspirations for fall, and these loose trousers are right up my alley. The white oxford pairing is on point, as this is a definite must-have for fall. Denisia included some color with her vibrant accessories, which added a fun twist to her look.

Channeling the spirit of youthful laissez-faire, the French New Wave films were often shot with improvised equipment by the directors’ friends. Paying homage to their method, we gathered photos from our own friends who captured the dreamy allure of some of Paris’s most iconic sights and experiences—adding inspiration around some of our favorite Milly looks.

I was thrilled to run into Michelle Smith, the designer of Milly. Michelle said she had an amazing show, but she was glad to take a breath and enjoy Fashion Week from another perspective. Of course, Michelle’s personal style is super-chic. I am totally enamored by her iridescent skirt and voluminous fur coat, and her leopard accessories add a playful pop of print. Thanks for sharing a moment with us, Michelle!

The darkest stages of nightfall and the beauty of classical dance provide the inspiration for Milly‘s ‘Dusk’ entitled fall collection.

Charcoal colors gave way to neutrals for daytime subtlety. From camel paper-bag wool trousers to oversized camel Lurex tweed jackets, designer Michelle Smith constructed a fall statement that emphasized texture and fluidity with precision layering.

Parisian ladies do love to add a touch of the unexpected to their feminine looks! This gorgeous gal’s look is so chic, but her prints and draped bomber jacket add just the right amount of individuality to her outfit. I love the cut and drape of her dress, and that floral Prada bag is highly covetable.
