Armani urges political action to preserve fashion

Milan and Rome are Italy's yin and yang: fashion capital, political capital, their fates entwined. This week, while Milan revels in what it does best, showing off its Made in Italy ready-to-wear fashion to the world, Rome is mesmerized by the rapid rise of Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi who confirmed Friday that he has formed a new government. Though one capital is viewed as productive and the other as entrenched, Italy's fashion world is mindful that whatever is decided in Rome is crucial to the industry's global competitiveness. "If China can make plastic jewelry for 30 euros, why do we have to pay 150 euros in Italy," Armani asked during a chat with reporters after his Emporio Armani preview show. Emporio Armani joins Blumarine, Etro and Versace in showing their wears Friday, the third day of Milan Fashion Week. The mood intensifies with double-breasted military style coat with epaulets, a short colored fur with metal buttons down the V-front, a cropped military jacket worn with slim trousers and satin-finish dress capes. And the collection wraps up with form-fitting sensual silky dresses worn with gold-embroidered macrame sashes and one big golden medal, Olympic style. The bling in the collection is at a minimum for Versace and the message is clear: power comes from within. BluMarine designer Anna Molinari has seemingly set out to preserve Italian craftsmen singlehandedly by dint of her elaborately embroidered collection. Sequins are sewn into jewel-colored dresses, one a mini and one a snug gown with blousy top. The collection evokes Japan, in its kimono colors and floral prints as well as the subtle addition of understated Obi belts, while retaining contemporary Italian fashion in the supple leather jumpsuits, tuxedo accents on silky pantsuits and... Veronica Etro infuses the label's trademark paisley print with an exoticism in a collection of ethnically inspired looks. Etro seems to have taken the globe up in her sweep, with plaids reminiscent of the Scottish highlands, shawls that suggest the Andes and Oriental accents on sheer tops that evoke an East-West travel route. A blanket shawl with fringe finish is worn over printed skirts with boots.

a crafty girl in London

there's been a pretty major reason why I've been quiet on the blog the past week. it's because we've recently returned from a trip to London. I was very, very nervous about attempting such a big trip and such long flights with the little ones (see accompanying post about traveling to London with toddlers below), but it turned out great and I would do it again (with a few modifications)...
