Milly Fall 2012 Runway Review

In true Milly fashion, it was all girly, all the time at Michelle Smith’s presentation. There was a definite American in Paris vibe with edgier fabrications paired with girlish millinery and soft shapes. Cinched waists reigned supreme and the collection was filled with strong, wearable pieces. Noteworthy looks included cloque jackets and coats and an arsenal of girlish skirts, and the collection was certainly more cohesive than showings past, but where Milly shows often fail is in presenting a memorable and standout collection. Granted, this may be asking too much, as it is a very wearable, contemporary line, but this type of collection doesn’t exactly stick in the mind.

Flashes of shimmering texture and neon were peppered throughout the wearable pieces and there were definitely memorable looks sprinkled throughout. Overall, it was a nice collection, of nice clothes, for girls with nice style. There was nothing shocking or even particularly remarkable but that’s not really why you see a Milly collection, you go for easy separates and flirty dresses perfect for a young woman’s wardrobe for work or play.
