I loved the Milly by Michelle Smith show and found the collection this year to be less preppy-girl. Again, we are seeing lots of black and white, cut outs, midriff tops.
For Spring 2014, Michelle Smith, founder and designer of MILLY, constructs an ultramodern interpretation of traditionally feminine silhouettes with the use of three-dimensional technical fabrics, layered transparency and architectural illusions.
Drawing inspiration from perforated facades found in contemporary Japanese architecture during a recent trip to Tokyo, Smith's laser cutting techniques and sculptural silhouettes lay the groundwork for a collection that plays with the eye and unveils the female form in unexpected proportions. Smith's custom-made prints, based on Japanese and Hawaiian florals and engineered in luxurious European fabrics, pop against a palette of black and white.
