No fashion week would be complete without some beautiful dresses to covet. They may be figure-hugging and sexy, they may be formed of the most delicate lace, they may be an explosion of tulle and embroidery… the matter is not their style nor even if you’d wear them, but rather whether they’re simply breathtaking to look at.
And so we kept an eye out during the spring 2014 fashion season of Milan for just some of those beautiful frocks. Because why wouldn’t you want to take a few minutes out to admire a pretty dress or 10?
Gianfranco Ferre’s fierce white dress looks like it might be accompanied by a samurai sword. The cutaways and silver accessories make it fit for a superhero.
Laura Biagiotti’s runway was intricate dress after intricate dress, but this sheer, bejewelled example had a particular classical grace.
