LONDON & MILAN MEN'S FASHION WEEK: FALL-WINTER 2016/17
The year just started and the fashion calendar is already running. The first few weeks of the year were marked by London and Milan Men’s Fashion Week. So, here I show you what happened there.
London Men's Fashion Week was a mix of long hair, tailoring, militarism, streetwear and fun. And speaking of fun, the master in it is Jeremy Scott, who brought all the color chart for the fall-winter of Moschino.
Burberry, one of my favorites, presented sports sweaters with zipper and Turtleneck, accompanied by dark and straight pants. And, complementing the outfit, the elegant and traditional covers. The color chart rotated between strong yellow, royal blue and dark red.
Inspired by the theory of evolution - Charles Darwin, McQueen, brought to the catwalk moths, butterflies, flowers and fossils. In a perfect tailoring that blended the Victorian Era with militarism.
The 70's and hip-hop were the bet of Coach. The designer Stuart Vevers invested in earth tones, blue, black, green, mustard, and red. The American rappers’ hat, leather jackets and fake fur were the highlights.
While London was marked by warm colors, in Milan, was the time of the silver and white.
Versace presented a super futuristic collection, where the silver and other metallic shades stole the scene. Donatella, proposes a mix between tailoring and sportswear and some details in fiber optics, super high tech.
Embroidery and jacquard are the proposal of Stefano Pilati, for Ermenegildo Zegna. The highlight was the elegant tailoring covers.
Dolce Gabbana was inspired in Westerns, or better, in the western spaghetti -for Italians and brought the world of Clint Eastwood to the catwalk. The result was a mix of Italian mafia with bang-bang and hip hop!
Check out some of what we will see in the streets next fall/winter 2016/17.
