2. Flawless Tailoring
It is true that designers in Milan and the rest of Italy love to express their fashion heritage through elegantly tailored outfits. This was also a highlight of the fashion week, and the acceptance of gender fluidity took it to another level. Definitely, Armani was the standout designer in this respect, especially with the shorter jackets and loose pants.
Top designers always insist that the essence of elegance is to be remembered for many eons. Therefore, it was not a surprise that exciting patterns and prints were visible throughout the event. Notably, Dolce&Gabbana; did excellently in this area with the west inspired collection.
4. Comfort Everywhere
Recently, the comfort of the home seems to have taken to the streets. As the season becomes unbearably cold, the man can wear anything that is comfortable and warm. Fendi and Burberry were able to capture this notion wonderfully with their jackets, long scarves and pajamas.
5. References to the 70’s
Many of the collections from the Milan fashion week for men showed strong reference to the 1970’s. This was especially showcased in the display of oversized raincoats that always seemed to bring disconnect.
The above trends are definitely an indication that the man is ready to raid the wardrobe for the sake of style and glamour. With this new kind of sophistication, we can only enjoy the excitement of a blend of future and vintage.
