Milan Fashion Week- A very graceful first Tod’s Pret a Porter collection by Alessandra Facchinetti

Leave a comment

The desk clutter in my hotel room before the SS 2014 Tod’s show. My purple note book, the current book I am not reading but devouring and Alessandra Facchinetti’s mood board for her first Tod’s collection. The colour palette ,  the ponchos, suits, full skirts, crisp constructed shirts, Gio Ponti-influenced color-blocked leather pieces along with the incredibly strong tradition of Tod’s accessories made this a collection one to remember and look forwards to– come Spring!
The interior of the setting for the show- the PAC Museum (the Pavilion of Contemporary Art) in Milan, incredibly elegant interior.
The catwalk

Classic , timeless but with a twist above

I can really see this being something that Milicent Rogers would wear

and below the re -interpretation of the classic ballerina

Something I could wear day and night for years and years to come

The post show dinner …or what’s left of it

The small private dinner at the incredible Villa Necchi after the show . If the name does not mean anything to you- you might remember it better from the film ” I am love “. A Museum today it is a very well preserved jewel of 1930′s architecture allowing visitors a glimpse into the life of an industrialist Milanese family.
