Milan Fashion Week: Mila Schon Fall 2013
Mila Schon has turned to a new team of international designers to usher in a new era for the label. The first collection, cold weather clothes for next year, had an ingénue appeal, with flouncy and feminine looks. The design team created volumes with ruffles and blousy effects that projected an easy-to-sketch silhouette. Fur-and-wool coats had tiered ruffle necks. Sheer black spandex turtlenecks finished with a flourish with long, bell-shaped ruffles that start at the elbow. Ample skirts, short and long alike, promised sashay to any walk. Miniskirts and short coats showed off leather high-heeled boots that disappeared beneath the short hemlines. But hemlines on coats, skirts and pants also were left to trail.
