Fendi RTW Fall 2013 / Photo By Giovanni Giannoni Linda Fargo, senior vice president, fashion office and store presentation, Bergdorf Goodman, New York: Sound off: “The messages from Milan which meant the most to us were either romanticized or of great textural interest.” Trendspotting: “Prada stood out as one of the best international collections thus far, with its desirable hybrid of vintage references, provocation and innovation.

For the Spring 2013 campaign, Miu Miu took a page out of parent brand Prada‘s book, choosing to forego the hard casting decisions by hiring every girl that made it to the short list. It was a varied bunch of model types: the only thing Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, Arizona Muse, Malgosia Bela, Bette Franke, and Martha Hunt have in common is that they’ve now all been photographed by Inez & Vinoodh for Miu Miu’s Spring 2013 ad campaign.

Written by Rob Hill By the 50′s, Capri had become a byword for glamor and a magnet for the international jet set: the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy and Truman Capote mixed and mingled with Italy’s beautiful people on their annual vacations. The island’s inherent fashion-consciousness is, these days, exemplified by the myriad designer boutiques from Prada to Armani and Dolce & Gabbana that line the streets of Capri Town offering slick, shiny contrasts to its pebble- strewn bays and sandy […]
