Milan Men's Fashion Week just wrapped; here's a look at some of the most memorable shows.
“James Dean crashes his plane on a tropical island and adapts” is how Dean and Dan Caten described their men’s collection this season. One might assume that would mean loin clothes fashioned out of leaves and the likes, but, in fact, it translated into a slew of models dressed in little more than tighty whities while others strutted out in fitted print separates. Rolled up denim pants, low slung shorts, and cropped trousers cut relatively wide were also prominently featured. So much for Dean's classic leather jacket and white tee...
With cinched waists and oversized collars prominently featured in this season’s Massimiliano Giornetti-designed Salvatore Ferragamo collection, there was a distinct feminine feel to many of the pieces in the line-up. Also notable was the brand’s head-to-toe monochrome looks, which worked well given that the designer played with various saturation of a single hue and varied the texture within each look.
There’s no doubt that Ermenegildo Zegna makes some of the world’s best classic suits, but this season, with Stefano Pilati at the helm, brought with it a number of more fashion-forward daywear looks. Cuts were kept tailored and slim throughout making even the more out of the box cuts wholly approachable.
Will men be wearing loosely fitted suits and Hawaiian shirts next season? They will if Miuccia Prada has her way. The designer showed a vacation inspired lineup that included quirky prints (think pinup girls) and sporty, relaxed separates.
