1.  Hello gorgeous morning in Milan!

2.  The perfect Boy to accompany in Milan this week. @chanel that is. #mfw

3.  Max Mara is all about coats – surprise! These ones are army officer inspired with more volume & blouson backs. #mfw

4.  “Each man kills the thing he loves” the trilling refrain at Max Mara. Disturbing with military inspiration on runway #mfw

5.  Last night’s No21 was inspired by Queen Elizabeth in her private life, gardening etc. Who knew? #mfw

6.  Every kind of fur on Fendi’s runway – broadtail, mink, curly lamb, mink. Mad Max meets Pebbles theme. Lots of sleeve detail #mfw

7.  Could Fendi’s new iPad frame bag – shown in broadtail & patterns – be their new baguette? #mfw

8.  Accessories reign at Fendi – weightlifter belts, high heel boots in patched skins, major totes & the new box bag fit for iPads #mfw

9.  In a residential area of Milan – an unlikely place for the Marni outlet

10.  This time last year at #mfw we were buzzing about John Galliano. Now it’s all about Raf Simons. A huge talent & a favourite.

11.  My invite to DSquared2. Could this mean a non-bondage or non-Western theme?? #mfw

12.  Bumped into Tommy Ton at Prada where we admire the hot wheels heels. Shoes? Or garden furniture for me? My home wins this one. #mfw

13.  A stark purple carpeted set at Prada. Flourescent light with neon tubes. #curious

14.  Prada’s footwear is always copied. Today’s pumps feature rubber caps, flats are like rubber deck shoes.

15.  No hot wheels, no monkeys. Prada goes for a hardcore geometric patterned look, or embellished black in structured shapes. #mfw

Classic Prada – if there is such a thing – that highlighted geometric prints, brooch-like embellishments on all, belted jackets w/ crop pant

17.  Madame Prada herself almost takes a tumble in her rubber-capped heels.

18.  Prada beauty: white powdered faces, orange brows, thick black eye liner & dip-dyed long hair. Looks as odd as it sounds – goth circus.
