Milan Spring Summer '17: Boglioli

One of the collections that has caught my eye during this edition of Milan Fashion Week is Boglioli.

After looking at the proposals presented this weekend for Spring Summer 2017, it was nice to see that simple and timeless elegance are still around because many designers have presented collections that are very sporty, avant-garde, or radical to my personal taste.

Boglioli's looks are perfect to be worn when sightseeing around the French Riviera or Italy due to their fabrics and omnipresent blue-green-grey color palette which blends perfectly with the Mediterranean settings.

Prints are popular again and I liked how Davide Marello opted for bold yet not so overdetailed designs.

The finishing touch for these ensembles were sunglasses from L.G.R, the Italian brand whose eyewear is entirely handmade in Italy, and have recently released a limited edition inspired by Mario Testino.

Mauritius and Scorpio were the eyewear models worn on the runway, and can be seen better on
