Milly by Michelle Smith‘s SS12 collection is all about color, and geometry. Attending Milly’s show was extremely exciting because I’ve been a fan of the line for years as the clothes are always colorful regardless of the season. I don’t know if this is good or bad, but the clothes kind of reminded me of Tetris, a game I find myself absolutely addicted to as it is relaxing, colorful, and sometimes complex. Certain patterned clothes reminded me of this game more than others, especially the dress below.
I would not use the word “sexy” to describe this collection. Milly’s clothes always come off as a bit preppy, which is not a term I’d use to describe my style, but there are those days when getting all colorful, bright, and girly feels good. Milly’s clothes, overall, have continued to evolve each season.
And what else has improved? Milly’s accessories, which include platform shoes, new handbag designs (rectangular clutches and satchels in bright colors that will have you addicted in the spring- pink, bright citron, and aqua), and some patterned hats.
I especially loved how the models were styled: cute side ponytails, bold sunglasses, fun totes, and bright pink lipstick. So spring! Sitting front-row at Milly’s show was Tinsley Mortimer (who looked city chic, as always), and singer Corinne Bailey Rae, who is just super cool (from head-to-toe).
On another note, my Missoni for Target packages just arrived, and I am thrilled by the way the clothes look, and fit. Everything looks so stylish and chic, and I can’t wait to fashion my new pieces; some for fall/winter, and others for cruise. Can you say le ciel? I can, darlings.
