Check out the first batch of photos from Milan Fashion Week

And we’re in Milan! Alongside Zeina Esmail who will be covering for us from inside the shows, our resident street style photographer, Stefania Yarhi, has hopped a plane from London and headed to Northern Italy to start snapping the best looks from Milan Fashion Week Spring 2013.

As predicted, we spotted yet another Balenciaga sci-fi sweater (might as well make your own) and Vogue Japan editor, Anna Dello Russo, decked out in red with a peplum and zebra bangle.

It seems as though everyone in Milan is wearing prints—and multiple prints at once. Whether it was a cat sweater, houndstooth, or polka dots, street stylers were wearing it. The shining example of wearing prints goes to the blue power suit covered in pandas.

We spotted model Joan Smalls with a studded collar popping out from under her cropped sweater and Hanne-Gaby Odiele pretending it’s summer yet again, in a low cut printed dress. The women in Milan were paying attention to their necklines and made sure to accessorize their collars with metal tips or a chain tucked under. And if they weren’t wearing a collar, there was a statement necklace set in place.

If this was a taste of what Milan has to offer, it’s safe to say we’re hungry for more.
