(Alberta Ferretti aw2013)
While looking at photos for London Fashion Week, I realized that Milan Fashion week is well underway! Alberta Ferretti showed today, flexing classic muscles that brought Downton Abbey's Lady Mary to mind. Working in black and white, and a jewel toned palette for simple embroidered dresses and adorable full skirted coats, the clothing is uber feminine and sweet without being precious.


Back in London, Christopher Kane is mining all that's bright and beautiful (as usual) with textural dresses that looked like scribbles, plush gardens, and tape collages. 835d6f041b855c113d61d2ab87e65e6b8b7f3feb

Last but not least, Rihanna debuted her new line to mixed reviews...
