Toolally and Milan Fashion Week

No sooner had we recovered from the excitement of London Fashion Week, it was time to turn our attention to Italy’s fashion offering in Milan.

Our fabulous Toolally ambassador Helen was lucky enough to be right in the centre of the action, attending the Dolce & Gabbana and Versace shows (whilst wearing the Sundials)! We loved her Instagram video of the flying handbags!

Elsewhere Gucci, Moschino, Emilio Pucci and Armani all showcased some amazing upcoming trends. Once again, we’ve rounded up our favourites from the runway and we’re very excited about what’s in store for AW18!

Gucci
You may have seen Gucci’s unusual show featured in the news, as models breezed down the runway cradling replicas of their own heads! It made for a sensational show and the clothes themselves comprised an eclectic mix of fabrics, sequins and colour. We particularly loved creative director Alessandro Michele’s mish mash of textures to create a truly unique collection.

Wear with… Sundials black and iridescent

 

Emilio Pucci
Pucci is a great inspiration for colour and didn’t disappoint in Milan, displaying its classic bold prints. Silk again was featured heavily across the collection. The whole show was a riot of colour whilst keeping a warmer vibe for autumn/winter – perfect for if you want to stay stylish during the cooler months. Our love affair with the design continues…

Wear with… Art Deco Chandeliers nude and sapphire

 

Versace
Donatella’s signature glamour was as evident as ever in her AW18 collection. Deep plum was the colour of choice for outerwear which is great news for Toolally as we love using plum and violet acrylics in our designs. We also saw lots of electric blue in the collection, which will be perfect for adding a pop of colour to your AW wardrobe whilst keeping it on season and on trend.

Wear with… Fan Droplets plum and lime 

 

Armani
What stood out in Giorgio Armani’s AW18 collection was the glitz and glamour of the eveningwear. Fringing, sequins and embroidery were top trends, reaffirming the importance of details and accessories to your look. Naturally, we couldn’t agree more! Featuring classic Armani tailoring, we think the trends from this collection will marry perfectly with the luxury of our LBD collection.

Wear with… LBD Hoops black

 

We’ll be back one last time for Paris Fashion Week next week.. Keep an eye on on our blog!
