Milan Fashion Week: Blumarine Spring 2009 Photos by Nathalie Lagneau
We think that Missoni might be onto something both culturally and emotionally empowering with their very green Spring 2009 collection. The monochromatic, easy, beaded looks were just the perfect offering for what will be challenging season. After all, if there's anything Missoni understands--it's how not to mess with a good thing.
The wedge has been a popular shoe for seasons and though it's always second runner up to the platform it seemed as thought Milan was banking on a breakthrough. While Salvatore Ferragamo invented the wedge, it was Dolce and Gabbana and D&G that did the most with the form this season alongside appearances from Fendi, Marni, Moschino and Frankie Morello.
