Milan’s fashion week has already garnered a ton of gossip (grrr Katy Perry) and some of it is actually fashion related. Whether it was mesh, peek-a-boo styles or geometric patterns, Milan hasn’t disappointed.

At Prada and Dolce & Gabbana, vintage prints and streamlined, classic shapes made a huge impact. Several collections offered quirky styles, but more on that later.

Giorgio Armani and Emilio Pucci created highly textured pieces using fur and leather. Transparency and cut-outs are notable trends!

Last fall, navy was a key runway colour and it looks like it may continue its reign this season. Houses like Fendi just couldn’t get enough.

Since the start of the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Canada has been swelling with pride. With the medal count on the rise, thanks to the incredibly talented athletes, you just want to whip out your maple leaf flag and wave it loud and proud. But even when the Olympics are over, it’s important to keep that patriotism going. One easy way is to wear Canada.

Fall 2014 Fashion Week Report #LFW

With the end of New York Fashion Week marks the beginning of the Euro fashion weeks. First up, London.

Only a few days in and we’re all getting a sense of what’s to come for Fall/Winter 2014…British style. So far, designers and houses showing in London are using bold prints and patterns, a great deal more than in New York. Black is still a huge colour, look to Tom Ford to see what I mean. However, patterned rusts and muted yellows were present at the stunning Burberry Prorsum show. The whole collection was executed so well. ¬†Other crowd pleasers included Canadian ex-pat Erdem and wild Peter Pilotto.

Which look is your favourite so far?
