Before the Spring/Summer 2015 collections make way for the Autumn/Winter ones, there’s still time to snap up Milin’s current collection, “Morning After,” a collection designed for those days when you’ve been partying all night, but you still think it’s a good idea to smash some Bloody Mary’s with friends. The Milin girl isn’t one who knows when it’s a great time to slip into some PJ’s, pull out that tub of Ben & Jerry’s, and indulge in a Scandal marathon, apparently.
According to Milin Yuvacharuskul, for a Milin girl, “the morning after is no less spirited than the night before” and “they never let the supposedly lethargic morning after be the anti-climax of her extreme lifestyle.” Sounds tiring.
But, thankfully, there are no rules about wearing the collection after a decent night’s sleep.
While it may bill itself as a casual collection for women who are quite happy to slink around in luxurious fabrics, thigh-grazing hemlines, and sheers at any time of the day, most people will probably opt to wear these pieces for the evening; call us old-fashioned, but shimmering transparent fabrics wrapped around mini dresses and sequins make us feel a tad exposed and a little like we haven’t yet made it home from the night before.
But, if you come to terms with the fact you don’t have the energy to be the Milin girl the designer envisions, the collection of fairytale-esque pastels, glitter-coated mesh, and softly folded flowing “towel-tucked” cuts which hint at nightwear and the kinds of outfits you’d pick out if you were Thumbelina, planning to spend the day sitting dreamily on a flower petal. Slinky nightwear as daywear is a thing now, you know.
Our favourite look from the collection is a bum-grazing white origami-folded dress—the ideal summer party dress—but we’re less thrilled by garments such as the backless white micro-mini dress which “covers” your exposed knickers with sheer netting. We’d still have to be rather affected by the intoxicants of the night before to sport that little number out in public.
This collection will certainly test your nerve. But, if you’re Milin enough, you’ll embrace the stares you’ll inevitably encounter. You might look like you’re dressed in Cinderella’s nightie, but there’s no denying Morning After is a beautiful collection.
