At this Milan Fashion Week fall 2014 edition, femininity had a variety of interesting interpretations, ranging from reserved and practical to amazingly expressive and opulent. As each label put its own spin on the concept, we’ve got the chance to see some amazing looks which can inspire fashionistas with a variety of style preferences in the upcoming season. If adding feminine pieces to your wardrobe in the upcoming months is among your goals, these stunning lines can definitely prove inspiring:
MFW Fall 2014: Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2014 RTW Collection
The Dolce & Gabbana fall 2014 collection titled ‘Enchanted Sicily’ was the perfect reflection of the idea of whimsical femininity. The two masterminds behind the brand took inspiration from fairytales with medieval elements associated to them.
The label adorned its newest creations with a myriad of sumptuous embellishments and used key, owl, fox or floral motifs to add a strong visual impact to most of the outfits included in the new line. The brand opted for simple silhouettes to avoid making the new ensembles feel too over the top. Accessories-wise, the label went for both simple and understated options and heavily embellished pieces that closely reflected the overall theme.

MFW Fall 2014: Blumarine Fall 2014 RTW Collection
In the Blumarine fall 2014 collection, femininity and sexiness were tightly interlinked. Designer Anna Molinari titled the new line ‘Unexpected Heritage’ and used Far East influences to transpose her vision into reality. The designer worked with floral jacquards, gold lame and rich hues of emerald, royal blue, red and purple to add a touch of luxury to her usual modern and sultry ensembles. Among the pieces that best reflected the theme were kimono inspired satin dresses, while fur trims and fur coats were the elements that heightened the opulent allure of the new looks.

MFW Fall 2014: Luisa Beccaria Fall 2014 RTW Collection
The Luisa Beccaria fall 2014 collection brought ladylike silhouettes, soft tones and subtle fifties influences. A soft, romantic allure could easily be sensed as the label sent her new creations down the runway. It seems like the designer stayed well within her comfort zone as far as the tailoring techniques and the details are concerned. Lace accents provided a delicate allure to the lovely new gowns the Italian label put forward for the cold months of 2014. View more from the Luisa Beccaria fall 2014 collection!
MFW Fall 2014: Bottega Veneta Fall 2014 RTW Collection
The Bottega Veneta fall 2014 collection also reflected the idea of femininity, however, in a much more reserved manner compared to the lines we’ve got to see so far. It seems like designer Tomas Maier decided to forgo focus on unexpected shapes and volume that characterized the Bottega Veneta spring 2014 line and concentrate instead on simpler, modern shapes and abstract motifs for the new line. Chic knee length dresses and skirts along with classic coats proved to be the stars of the Italian label’s new show. See the complete Bottega Veneta fall 2014 collection!
MFW Fall 2014: Alberta Ferretti Fall 2014 RTW Collection
The Alberta Ferretti fall 2014 collection was inspired by nature. The label brought an interesting selection of opulent yet romantic ensembles with a cool feminine twist. By working with heavy embellishments and a somber color palette, the designer managed to bring a variety of cool options with a surprising modern allure. In addition to a multitude of nature-inspired prints, feathers and soft lace details, the new line also featured tweed pieces in rich autumnal hues.
