Burberry proved that classic items such as a peacoat/trench coat and pullover sweaters are never out of style. Less is always more.
Etro (below) was the bohemian show this season. Like always Etro's paisley inspired prints and patterns made one think of Rasputin, Russia, The Beatles, and Brian Jones. Big pendant necklaces are a good accesory for winter ensembles.
Roberto Cavalli was one the innovators and trendsetters in Milan with its very original "teleidoscopic" pattern, the next paisley. This brightly executed pattern used in ties, linings, shirts, and jackets had the power to turn dark ensembles into bright ensembles perfect for any soiree around town.
Iceberg somehow paid tribute to Mondrian and Yves Saint Laurent with this geometric sweaters.
Ferragamo paid hommage to those rainy nights at Times Square with a black+blue collection that used leather and wool. Its creator, Massimiliano Giornetti thanked the audience wearing a Winter essential: a black velvet jacket.
Prada was a combination of 80s, minimalism, color blocking, and Miami Vice .
