MILLY F/W 2016

CLASSIC MILLY

Michelle Smith does it again for F/W 2016! Her latest collection features all the elements of the classic Milly woman- feminine, sexy and strong.

We start out with with flirty effeminate looks – shorter hems, exposed shoulders, trapeze dresses and plunging necklines. These looks remain soft yet mighty due to their geometric lines and vivid colors. Then we visit a powerful, alluring woman wearing streamlined body conscious pencil skirts and fitted tops. Even when looks cover most of the body with a button up shirt and slim trouser, we see sensuality in sheer blouses paired with bra tops and bandeaus. Milly also revisits playing with volume through swing coats, inverted pleat culottes in a longer length and dresses with full, flouncy skirts.

A wide variety of color was shown in this assemblage. We saw black paired with saturated red, green and navy, along with pastel cosmetic tones in pink, cool blue and nude. Consistent with her aesthetic, Michelle showcases exciting prints including a graphic, painterly watercolor in cool tones.

Textures were strong and exciting, something we look forward to from Milly. Touches of metallic gold, fur, honeycomb lattice and sequins were seen. The pattern showcased the most throughout was a fringe adorned black fabric that was featured in either green or red blossom floral. Also presented was a 1960s inspired white textile with soft, black tufted pom flower print all over.

We saw quintessential Milly silhouettes layered up for the colder months. Bikini tops, bottoms and miniskirts were seen worn under long, elegant swing coats. Ribbed turtlenecks worn under sleeveless minidresses did the job of warming up a look as well. The looks were finished off with square handbags in black leather and provocative d’Orsay heels.

Though it feels like we are just getting away from a very cold winter, Milly gives us a breathtaking cast of magnetic, coquettish looks to be inspired by. Words by Xina Giatas. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://www.milly.com
