Prada, Cavalli Debut in Milan

And now Milan is taking her turn. Fashion Week raged on this weekend with Roberto Cavalli and Miuccia Prada debuting new collections for the masses. Thigh high boots and draped furs took center stage and were far cries from the flimsy fabrics of last season. Prada was described as “utilitarian” and “practical,” with simple leather belts and oversized bags. Even the designer says the collection was “for the outside, for the countryside... for being in the fresh air, not being in a nightclub.” Roberto Cavalli, meanwhile, toughened up the catwalk with a biker chic look, aggressive, studded accessories and tiny, daring leather skirts. Fashionistas have two more days of fashion-gazing ahead.
