The Milan shows have come and gone, now the show has moved onto Paris. But before I start dreaming about the fashion that is yet to emerge, Milan was nothing short of noteworthy. A few trends from New York and London carried over to Milan, like florals - bright, colorful and over-sized as seen at shows like Marni and Blumarine. Denim received a high fashion makeover from bejeweled at Dolce & Gabbana to an exaggerated peplum at Giamba (Giambattista Valli's new line, which is stunning as expected). A key shade was clay - a muted and earthy tone that created a soft palette at Bottega Veneta and Marni.
