Milan Fashion Week Spring 2014 Roundup, Part 2: Bottega Veneta, Marni, and Dolce & Gabbana

While Milan Fashion Week kicked off with a big, vibrant, Technicolor bang, full of feathers, fringe, and artsy embellishments, it came to a close with more of a light and seductive whisper, one only real Italians can deliver.
