Milan men’s’ fashion week has pretty much come and gone. However, there are some collections which we will always remember.
Here, we take a definitive recap of some of the most memorable:
Francesco Risso and his recycling-themed collection were a breath of fresh air at the runway. His catwalk was staged under a canopy of plastic bottles, a statement which he referred to as humanistic.
He said, “Each little step is a change and that’s why we are here standing together. It’s about standing up [and] transforming what we have.”
The brand featured characteristic outfits. As you can expect, hats were their standout feature in Milan as well.
Silvia Centuri Fendi and director Luca Guadagnino embarked on a collaboration to merge film and design in this collection. The prints on clothes had a story to them, as they were from the sketches that Guadagnino made from a movie. Also, the garden setting and soundtrack were conjured by his Box Office hits “Call Me By Your Name” and “I Am Love.”
In addition to that, the clothes had the symbolic horticultural theme as well. Even the setting had things such as picnic baskets, watering cans, gardening gloves, etc.
There was a similarity between Sunnei and Fendi. Like the latter, Sunnei chose a park as its co-ed collection stage. The only difference was that Sunnei’s exhibition was an urban regeneration experiment. Italian dup Simone Rizzo and Loris Messina designed an exhibition which featured lovely fabrics, which felt relaxed and carefully made at the same time.
Stella McCarthy’s Milan set was a presentation in an amply-lit courtyard. Titled Force for Nature, the set was staged like a fashion protest. Models mingled in the crows and carried placards with slogans such as “We are entirely free to live our lives differently.”
All in all, this set reflected a show of activism. The message reflected in the choice of clothes as well, with creative spins on environmental sustainability everywhere.
Donatella Versace paid tribute to the late Keith Flint, the frontman for electronic dance act The Prodigy. Flint passed away earlier this year, and the ace designer was particularly fond of him. At Milan, models strutted in bug-eye sunglasses and discernible mohawks, but you could also see a sense of rebellion as well.
Most of the clothes were tight and slimmed down, and the touch of Versace was pretty obvious as well.
