Milan offers women colour, patterns for next summer
MILAN (AP) - After New York and London, it's Milan's turn to have a say as to how women will dress for the spring-summer 2013.
If the first day of previews on Wednesday was any indication, next summer will feature a lot of bold colour and patterns. While the more structured, usually daytime, looks were in heavier fabrics, evening or playtime came in airier, diaphanous materials like chiffon and tulle.
Milan designers are offering more romantic looks rather than their trademark slinky and sexy. Long and loose pants were paired with ample tunic tops while voluminous long skirts offered a nice sweep.
The accessories - high-heels and bags alike - often replicated patterns in the outfits. Hair styles were long and simple, either tucked up in a chignon or behind the ears.
