Perfect for a day of sight-seeing at the Louvre and shopping on the Champs Élysée, Michelle Smith’s latest collection combines the classic style of 1960s France with a modern and youthful twist. The feminine pieces included berets embellished with zippers, printed skirts paired with tights in neon hues, and in true Milly fashion, plenty of bows and frills.
With a soulful rendition of “This Land is Your Land” as the soundtrack to the collection, Brian Reyes took us on a journey deep into the forest where we saw birch tree bark in the form of draped dresses and jackets, and foxes in the form of luxurious coats, our favorite being a cobalt blue trench. The collection, inspired by visits to arboretums, also highlighted nature’s most dramatic pigments such as jade, amber, and violet.
