Curvy Femininity is what the Milly by Michelle Smith Spring 2014 collection was all about. Like most collections this season, the use of black and white was major but, it could not have been more perfectly done than how Michelle Smith designed it. With body conscious mesh dresses, high-waisted micro shorts, structured flowy jackets and sleek pencil skirts one is ready for their trip to Hawaii. Speaking of Hawaii, this collection was inspired by a recent trip to Hawaii and Japan. The prints were fun and colorful with images of big bright flowers and parrots, done very tastefully. Michelle is known best for her use of fabrics and prints. This season is it definitely all about the knitted mesh “everything” making the line very see through and sexy. How each garment was constructed made for a very pretty and edgy silhouette. It also made great use of mixing and matching black and white separates; which the collection was pleasingly filled with. As shoppers it’s important to find these characteristics within a collection. We all need separates to spice up our wardrobe, don’t we ladies?
Accessories are what we look forward to most at The Style Senders, and Milly always does it right! We love Milly’s bags and believe they are the next best, It bag, especially her clutches,. With a wide array of clutched and satchels gracing the runway, each girl looked perfectly put together; ready for her date out with that special guy.
Overall, this collection was the perfect ending to our time at Fashion Week. It exuded a great feminine simplicity yet was tough and edgy enough to be sexy and free. Overheard backstage was Michelle stating, “Not to worry, these garment’s will be lined when in stores.” I’m sure this will make many women more opt to purchase items from this collection, but we still think it’s hot without the lining!
