As we prepare to say goodbye to this Milan Fashion Week fall 2014 edition we can't help but be amazed by the amazing creative resourcefulness of some of Italy's most renowned upscale brands. Refinement and opulence were mixed with impeccable craftsmanship and unexpected interpretation of modern luxury for an impressive effect every single time. Here are some of the most thought-provoking ensembles that Milan Fashion Week has brought into the spotlight:
MFW Fall 2014: Roberto Cavalli Fall 2014 RTW Collection
The Roberto Cavalli fall 2014 collection was an extravagant display of head-turning ensembles with an opulent twist presented in a rather unique manner as the runway featured a giant ring of fire.
The best description of the show comes from the label itself: “A hypnotizing dance of fire circles the runway: an equestrian atmosphere alternates with flashes of elaborate flapper dresses, like a modern day hunting party that blends with the symbols of the Maison.” Decadent ensembles featuring variations on the label's favorite animal prints, stunning outwear choices, luxurious fur trims and flame motifs proved to be the best highlights of the show.

MFW Fall 2014: Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2014 RTW Collection
The Salvatore Ferragamo fall 2014 collection seemed to be based on the idea of understated luxury with a modern allure. Designer Massimiliano Giornetti put forward a variety of sophisticated but highly wearable ensembles in dark versatile tones with colorful accents, animal prints or plaid patterns and subtle metallic elements. The label opted for well defined proportions and classic structures for the most part, even though the few blanket coats and capes the label first brought into the spotlight seemed to indicate a more bohemian perspective.

MFW Fall 2014: Emilio Pucci Fall 2014 RTW Collection
The Emilio Pucci fall 2014 collection was inspired by the Native American and Inuit cultures. Designer Peter Dundas worked ethnic prints and opulent furs and brought ultra sizzling looks that are sure to ignite every bold fashionista's imagination. Slinky fringed dresses, cozy Navajo-inspired knits, lamé details, form fitting dresses with elaborate beadwork, sexy knee high boots or strappy gladiator sandals proved to be among the best highlights of the new bohemian inspired line, which seemed to uncover a fresh facet of the luxury label's aesthetic DNA.

MFW Fall 2014: Marni Fall 2014 RTW Collection
“Amplification, exaggeration, gentle distortion” were the buzzwords of the Marni fall 2014 collection. Designer Consuelo Castiglioni brought a diverse set of options with sporty, masculine accents and a plethora of eclectic prints, architectural proportions and playful volumes. Luxurious fur coats in bold autumnal tones, asymmetric skirts, masculine footwear, sportswear-inspired pants or boxy tops were among the memorable elements the luxury label's new line put into the spotlight.

MFW Fall 2014: Missoni Fall 2014 RTW Collection
Exaggerated proportions were also an important part of the Missoni fall 2014 collection, however, to a much smaller degree compared to the new Marni line. Rather than bringing shocking proportions into the spotlight, Angela Missoni focused instead on texture and unveiled a variety of stunning outwear choices featuring the brand's iconic zig zag pattern and fur details, wool sweatshirts and sweatpants, tweed cargo pants and cool cowboy boots. The free spirited woman seems to have been the source of inspiration behind the new Missoni line. View the complete Missoni fall 2014 collection!
