From space to cowboy chic, here’s a look at my favorite collections from the Milan A/W 2016 menswear shows.
Gucci has definitely departed for its hyper sexual style championed by former creative directors Tom Ford and Frida Giannini and has settled into a more romantic and feminine silhouette of girl meets boy in both its men’s and womenswear collections cleverly crafted by newly minted creative director Alessandro Michele.
Roberto Cavalli found new creative director Peter Dundas, on his second outing continuing his exploration to move the brand forward. Known for its over the top ornamentation Dundas has a more contemporary approach and feel as he showed a collection that was filled with 70’s glam references complete with Hefner-esque inspired loungewear.
Dsquared2 designed by twin duo Dean and Dan Caten stepped away from their usual more flamboyant styled and look to the east presenting a collection that was beautifully tailored complete with origami pants and kimono styled skirts layered over trousers and slim fit jackets.
Antonio Marras think Clark Kent and the working boy cut and swathed and layered in retro finished tailored infused with a modern day contemporary feel.
Dolce & Gabbana took their spaghetti western theme to a more stylized place with embroidered denim and oversized fringed ponchos.
Ermenegildo Zegna was filled with beautiful cloak and draping filled with embellished beading and embroidery so masterfully cut showing Stefano Pilati at his best.
Fendi was a lot of bundle up and lets get cozy as the luxury brand known for its opulent furs explored a more relaxed fit in tailoring.
Missoni showed a collection that didn’t’ depart from the brands signature chevron but added a more tailored fit this season filled with rich jewel toned in autumn hues.
Versace zoomed into space, the other frontier as Donatella presented a futuristic collection worthy of a grown up Will Robinson ready to explore the universe in tailored cadet wear in grays, whites, metallic and vibrant bold tones.
Diesel Black Gold presented a lesson in prep school chic with a militaristic collection filled with oversized jackets and coats dressed over skinny fit trousers and leggings.
