Lucky magazine’s Executive Fashion Director, Alexis Bryan Morgan, explains #MFW in one simple tweet, “Italians embellishing the heck out of things this season.” From Dolce’s lavish collection, to Prada’s over-the-top prints, here are the most important tweets that happened during #MFW as delivered by fashion’s twitter heavyweights.
Adam Levine showed his support to both his model girlfriend, Anne V and Prada tweeting, “@AnneV…Prada show in Milan…no big deal….#HUGEDEAL” Support, a major theme at #MFW continued as @AnnaV tweeted to renowned makeup artist, @patmcgrathreal, "Love you Pat! Thank u for making me look and feel so powerful!" Jet setter and blogger, Bryan Boy also showed Prada a bit of twitter-love, tweeting, “Overwhelmed with the genius prints and suiting !!!!!!"
Kaiser Karl's other label, Fendi, received rave reviews by the fashion elite: Joe Zee tweeted, “Loved @Fendi: tiny braids, savage fur, 2-toned boots, chicest survival gear out there. It was #HungerGames, Karl-style. Cinna: take note!” Bryan Boy agreed tweeting, "Fendi Was such a good show."
Chloe Grace Moretz (above), who was named @MAXMARAUK’s Face of the Future, celebrated her new title by flying out to the Sportsmax show. @BritishVogue tweeted, "Plenty of sporty sass and @ChloeGMoretz in the front row." The teen and fashion darling tweeted during showtime, "#Sportmax fashion show!! So so so fun!! #SportMax." Celebrity sightings aside, Sportsmax was a happening event. Teen Vogue's Accessories Director @shionat tweeted, "Ummmm Ying Yang Twins playing at Sportmax followed by Busta. Playlist is winning majorly."
One of Dolce & Gabbana's highlights included a sighting of the lovely Helen Mirren, who of course, sat front-row. Barneys' Amanda Brooks tweeted, "Helen Mirren just arrived at Dolce with a curled white/blonde bob. Someone asked me it she was Paula Deen!!” W magazine's @wmagKarla replied, “I think it's safe to say we would all like to look like Helen Mirren when we are above an age that will not be named.” As for the actual show, which included heavy embellishments, embroidery, and a lot of flash, Vanity Fair's Fashion Market Director, @carlscrush, tweeted “The @dolce&gabbana finale had more black and gold than a new Orleans saints game, and a lot more leg."
One of the most talked about events during Milan’s fashion week had nothing to do with an actual collection but with a sudden play of designer musical chairs at fashion favorite, Jil Sander. "Raf Simons to leave Jil Sander. Show on Saturday to be his last," tweeted New York Time’s Cathy Horyn, breaking the story, which ensued an explosion in the fashion twitter-sphere. Derek Blasberg followed up with lighter humor, tweeting, “Jil Sander to return to Jil Sander. Just realized that while it's thrilling news to fashion fans, to most people it sounds like common sense."
Raf Simons' final show was emotionally charged and filled with tears. @BagSnob tweeted, ”Best show of #MFW – #JilSander. Standing ovation for a teary eyed Raf. Such an emotional show…” Elle UK described the atmosphere tweeting, “The set at Jil Sander, 7 plinths of flowers one for every Raf year. Is it wedding? Is it death? #mfw “ @Fashionista shared the audience's emotional connection during the show tweeting, “Audience refuses to leave Jil Sander after Raf's bow- they keep clapping and cheering until RAF re-emerges crying.”
And because one goodbye is never enough, Cathy Horyn broke similar news shortly after, "YSL has announced departure of Stefano Pilati, after March 5 show.” See you in #PFW.
