3 Milan Runway Menswear Trends SS 17
With Milan Fashion Week coming to an end, we take a look at the trends for Spring/Summer 2017.
All is fair in love, war and fashion. Milan was recently in the grip of Fashion Week as designers showcased what men could look forward to for Spring/Summer 2017. We bring you the three trends that dominated the runways of Milan.
The men really do get it in the style stakes, thanks to Prada’s colorful collection. With the help of neon piping, lightweight parkas and rain pants, sportswear gains traction as an acceptable outfit. Following in his footsteps is Philipp Plein with a collection that took its inspiration from the all-American basketball attire with tailored leather shorts while the sharp blazers add a little formality to an otherwise laid back outfit. Another brand that trekked down the path of athleisure was Moncler. Channelling an outdoorsy theme, the brand showcased a collection that had a boy scout-themed adventurous outwear.
Versace brought out a collection that featured lightweight materials for long parkas of semi-transparent nylon, silk shirts reimagined as zip-up blousons and silk knitwear that was tied around the waist. In a similar manner, Salvatore Ferragamo chose to explore the spirit and the attitude of a “restless adventurer”. The result was a whimsical and imaginative show case that would have made any dream come true. Dsquared2 showcased their artistic side with an androgynous glam rock collection influenced by the ‘quiet rebel’.
Of course, Dolce & Gabbana chose to go loud with a festive inspired show complete with leopard print trousers that really was the star of the show. Marni featured prints in their collection as well, with patterned jackets and accessories. Taking a softer approach to the trend, was Missoni with their multicolored patchwork knitwear that was inspired by the country of Guatemala.
