Spring 2015 Fashion Week Wrap Up: Milan and Paris

It's October already and while most people are picking out Halloween costumes, we can't stop thinking about how quickly fashion month has come and gone. This past month has been a particularly exciting on for us both here at P.S. Truly Yours because it has been confirmed that we will be traveling to one of the world's fashion capitals in January. Can you guess which one?! Okay, okay we will tell you! We are going to London! 

While living abroad, we absolutely plan to keep you up-to-date with every second of our lives. Don't you worry. And seeing as though that it is time to wrap-up these past few weeks once again, we could not be more excited about the very possible chance that we will actually be in one, if not more, of these cities for the Fall shows. Could life get any better?! In the meantime, we will focus on this season and the insanity that ensued in Milan and Paris. We wrapped up New York and London and showed you once again how to take looks from the runway and style them your way.  We're back again with the opulent styles of the two most luxurious fashion capitals, Milan and Paris. 

Bri's Picks
I really had no other choice, people. Oh, to think of what it would be like to spend a day in the shoes of Jeremy Scott. Clearly, it would be very pink-filled occassion. Yes, this great creative decided to pay a full on homage to one of fashions most historic icons - Barbie. As little girls, we all dreamed of being her. Well, now thanks to Jeremy Scott for Moschino, we totally can!

Sure, it's a bit 'costumey', but really how could it not be?! He has created an entire line taken directly from Barbie's dream closet! Of course he had to incorporate the signature Moschino graphic tee, this one reading "Moschino for ages 5 and up." Yup, I need that. It is safe to say that you will likely be seeing many life size dolls prancing down the streets next summer, and that is so not a bad thing at all. Love, love, love this. 

On a more serious note, Barbara Bui seriously brought it this Paris Fashion Week. How beautiful! I absolutely was enamored by her patchwork to begin the show. She put a tribal spin on modern, sleek looks that then evolved into extremely sleek and kind of futuristic preppy sportswear. It was amazing. 

White and black were the base of each look, aside from a slew of orange pieces  at the end of her show, and of course the all gold sweatsuit, which I need immediately. And to top off each look with a pointed toe oxford was so refreshing. With added elements of color and metallics, this show was completely on trend and absolutely to-die-for. 

Samantha's Picks

With all the big names of Milan and Paris, it is always an extremely hard decision on which shows are my favorite. Fay, however, was definitely my Milan favorite because of how unexpected and sporty it was. I loved seeing such a fresh line walk down the catwalks of such a glamour-related fashion capital.

My attraction to this line is definitely because of its influence from street style and English designers Nasir Mazhar. I loved the mix of pastel and sporty pops of neon. The play on Charlie Brown was adorable and gave the collection life on the runway. I'll take one of everything!

The always amazing Giambattista Valli topped my list for Paris fashion week. Valli told that this collection marked a point of clarity in his career, embodying the art of his design skills. 

This season's inspiration was drawn from Japan's postwar Metabolist movement, a time in which the perfect balance of industrial and artisanal design was achieved. This concept is so reflected in the materials and intricacy used in the looks. Claimed to be Valli's most accomplished collection to date, Spring 2015 definitely didn't disappoint. 

Off the catwalks and into our closets one more time until Fall FW...
