MILLY TAKES CINEMA FRANCAIS TO THE NEW YORK RUNWAY

HER BOLD INSPIRATION TURNS TO FEMININE STYLE AT MERCEDES-BENZ FALL 2010 FASHION WEEK

No one does grown-up girly better, or more consistently, than Michelle Smith does with Milly.  The films of French director Jean-Luc Godard inspired her for Fall, and she interpreted them in midnight blues, deep greens, rich aubergines and pops of bright, bright color.

The hemlines were a little longer, the designs were as feminine and pretty as ever.  I’m almost tempted to describe Milly’s style as “cute”, but I can’t, because they’re so sophisticated, perfect for work if you want to break out of the gray-or-black-suit mold.  They’re not wild, but they’re different.  The deep blue suit pairs a skirt with a cape, not a jacket.  A maxi skirt is paired with a thick wool sweater.  A flouncy, ruffly dress is topped with a tailored blue blazer.  It was a serious collection full of fun pieces, effortless and very chic.

This is Milly’s year, with a flagship shop set to open on Madison Avenue, a handbag and jewelry line about to launch, and even a kids line on the horizon.  After ten years, Milly by Michelle Smith has arrived, in a big way.
