If color is the new hemline indicator of the global economy, then things are definitely looking brighter for 2011.
Fashion editors and buyers thinking ahead to spring/summer 2011 have migrated from New York to London Fashion Week, which the New York Times' fashion critic Cathy Horyn summarized today as being all about one thing: "color." Now, they're searching their Italian dictionaries for adjectives to describe the hues on parade.
At yesterday's start to Milan Fashion Week, Gucci aimed for a show-stopper, above, with colors inspired by Morocco and bazaar-ready styles (harem pants, anyone?) Prada, meanwhile, also embraced glaring bright tones, which you can check out after the jump along with the Milan shows for Fendi, Dolce&Gabbana and Alberta Ferretti.
