All roads lead to Milan! About the spring-summer trends, in Beau Monde!

It was a great honor to talk about the hottest trends of the season in the March issue of Beau Monde magazine. And a great pleasure reminiscing about some of the most influential collections from Milan Fashion Week.

Here is the full article:

The show you were most impressed by

Emporio Armani was the show with the most impressive front-row I saw at Milano Fashion Week. From the big guns of Condé Nast US headed by President Jonathan Newhouse, to the full editorial team of Vogue US, with Anna Wintour, Hamish Bowles, André Leon Talley – and I can assure you, the list was longer than any of us could imagine.

The best collection

I’d call it a tie between Roberto Cavalli and Gucci. The Gucci runway show was just as revolutionary as it had been expected for. The collection put forward sets of innovative ideas, altogether atypical with respect to the established style: seductive and athletic, simple and yet ornate. On the other hand, I left the Roberto Cavalli show with a heart filled with lavish furs and the cocktail dresses of the new season.

Janina Nectara Lardini #MFW Milan Fashion Week

The fashion item you cannot forget

The most striking piece of S/S 2014 was actually given to me. I was invited to the Lardini showroom, and I found a wrapped gift, with a note ’’With the kindest regards, for Janina Nectara.’’ Inside – a classic suit, designed for me, after my measures. It was exactly the look in the advertising campaign, gracing all of their promotional materials.

The biggest disappointment

I did feel a tinge of sadness when I found out that Luis Vuitton’s Paris collection would be the last for Marc Jacobs with the brand. In his 16 years at the creative helm of the label, Jacobs’ input not only managed the greatest sales ever, but also provided a coherent definition for the previously non existent ready to wear line of the House.
