The Milan Men’s shows just wrapped and there were two distinct themes, luxury and military, making for quite a dichotomy. Here’s a look at some of the most memorable shows.
Forget the Golden Globes, Miuccia Prada closed her men’s show with a bang by having the likes of Gary Oldman, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Garrett Hedlund, Jamie Bell, Tim Roth, and Emile Hirsch walking the Prada runway. Fittingly, the designer showed a collection befitting of the A-listers she enlisted with a slew of austere military-inspired looks, some of which were finished with cool-as-can-be shades
From the quirky to the classic, Sarah Burton covered all of her bases in her well-tailored collection for Alexander McQueen.
It was British prep at its best at the Christopher Bailey-designed Burberry Prorsum show with newsboy caps (similar to those of past seasons), enviable man bags, fitted suits, color-block accented outerwear, and cozy knits.

Who says luxury is dead? Come Fall, men will be able to stock up on the likes of gold embroidered separates and silk pajamas and – for the truly adventurous – this seaon's Dolce & Gabbana collection also included a dramatically chic (Andrea Leon Talley, anyone?) cape.

It goes without saying that Giorgio Armani’s Fall 2012 men’s collection would include impeccably tailored suits, but this season, bolder prints, velvet, patch pockets, and loosely draped pants added a new (though not always in a positive way) dimension to classic closet staples.
