Who said pajama dressing was so last season (or few seasons ago)? For his own label, Marc Jacobs already showed some nightwear inspired runway looks. For Louis Vuitton, he took us to a grand hotel taking pajama dressing to a whole another level.
One model walked down the runway in a silk and lace bra top and knee-length skirt complimented with a long wool coat in a beautiful blue hue. Another one wore a black negligee while Kate Moss strutted her stuff in a long-sleeved gown embroidered with flowers. My favorites were the long and short wool coats with degradé embroidery. And Marc Jacobs doing the final walk in his own pj’s, from this seasons Louis Vuitton mens collection.

Back in the nineties, Ennio Capasa introduced a new way of mixing minimalism and good tailoring with his Costume National. Now that minimalism is (still) having its moment on the fashion runways, this obviously can not be called an introduction any longer.
So what does Capasa do to stay new and fresh? The fall/winter 2013 show did not contain a lot of ‘new’ things, or things that not anyone has ever seen before. Just good and functional tailoring in black, navy, white and a bit of burgundy.
There were some strong pieces that could definitely be called cravings, but they did not give me goosebumps. I mean I like timeless and classic pieces more than anyone, they just need to have this little surprising element that was missing here and there.

Massimiliano Giornetti’s Ferragamo runway was all about simplicity and construction, but even more about coats. Did the Italian weather gods whisper in his ears that Milan was going to be this rainy and snowy during the show? I am not sure, but what I am pretty sure of is that every single attendee wanted to walk away with one of his strong coats immediately.
A double breasted short jacket in both navy wool and pinstripes were just right. Giornetti’s black leather coat with pony hair panels and details was just what I needed, not to mention the white alpaca outerwear that could keep anyone from freezing. The boots and bags are definitely worth a visit to the store when the collection hits shelves as well.
Conclusion, the superb outerwear and and well played accessories keep me from talking about the less striking items underneath.
