Milan Fashion Week ended on a good note yesterday and according to WWD, buyers are happy with what they saw. Neiman’s Fashion Director and Senior VP, Ken Downing, told reporters:

“There was plenty to love in Milan this season with the amount of color and print. There’s much more of a focus on femininity, which our customers are always happy to see. There’s a lot of lace in Milan this season, some metallic. Transparencies look particularly beautiful when they are done in layers and leave something to the imagination. There’s also this sportif idea we saw in so many collections, with interpretations of leggings and shorts, bicycle shorts and anoraks. Shorts are becoming what the legging was for fall.”

Shorts seem to be a must-have item for Spring 2010, luckily designer’s showed them in all lengths (from super short to bermuda). I am loving all the fun prints, designers, such as Miuccia Prada did them in (like the beach-themed pair pictured above).
