Marble staircases, glowing chandeliers and paint-splattered lights filled the exclusive Palazzo Crespi where Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi presented their 2nd collection for FAY, a luxury clothing label owned by Tod’s. The Palazzo Crespi rarely opens it’s doors to anyone, so I felt quite fortunate to step in and experience the collection and palace as a whole.
FAY is mostly known for it’s dapper outwear and in the 2012 Fall Collection, they combined their iconic shades of pine green, mustard, cinnamon, burgundy and noir into mixed-tone looks with alligator prints and cozy fur trims sustaining the grandiose offering. Roger Vivier did well to accentuate each look with a pop color bootie.
As I traveled from one room to another, camera in one hand – champagne glass in the other, I was intrigued to find a new scene artfully crafted with models lingering around and projections camouflaging the fresco-covered walls and ceilings. It was a beautiful sight to see and an exquisite ending to my first day in Milano. Bacini NYS
