The ghost of past year's romance tromps the runway at Francesco Scognamiglio's Fall winter 2011 - 2012 runway show in Milan.
You can only really feel and appreciate the warmth in winter when you are surrounded by all the cold, when
everything is painted snow white and you exhale white smoke when you breathe.
Winter or the end of the year is the best time to retrace the steps you have taken for the entire year and start counting your misfortunes and blessings with a open, honest mind. Time to do some soul searching now that the end of the year is near. What could you have done better this year or another year has passed with you and your beloved one and what would you do to make your relationship better and stronger?
I love winter, and Francesco Scognamiglio has chosen the correct pallet of colours for this winter - Faded rose pink and beiges, creams, wintry grey and whites. Francesco Scognamiglio has also chosen an abundance of frills, folds, wavy patterns on trousers, lace, crochet, a stunning metal gold rose belt with gold thorns on the arm holes matched with thigh-high strappy sequinned boots.
The colour for me this winter will defintely be beige and pale pinks. I would gladly step away from dark and gloomy black and grays.
Winter is a time for reflection and a time to rekindle the warmth of love again.
