Following an energetic four days, Milan Men’s Fashion Week is set to conclude with Fendi on Monday evening. But before we bid addio to the Italian metropolis and set our sights to Paris for the final stop of the four-city circuit, we look back at the seven best shows from the men’s runways in Milan. Read on to discover the standout looks you need to see.
Dolce & Gabbana
Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2019 men’s collection was an educational journey through the brand’s evolution. The offering featured every element of D&G’s DNA. Of course, we can always count on the Italian house for a legendary cast of models, and the latest collection was no exception. The runway included everyone from millennial model Cameron Dallas to show-closer Naomi Campbell, and Nigerian rapper Wizkid.
There were plenty of notable pieces from the DSquared2 runway— paneled tracksuits, net shirts, khakis aplenty, and arguably the most humungous waist-bag we’ve ever seen. However, it was the women’s wedge-sneakers with Perspex and Velcro straps that had all the iPhone cameras clicking.
Designer Francesco Risso injected a much-needed dose of playfulness into Marni’s Spring 2019 men’s collection. with windbreakers printed with abstract drawings by German artist Florian Hetz, oversized jackets paired with bath slippers, and bombers with mismatched sleeves. Not for the fashionably faint-hearted.
Featuring knitwear in racing checks, leather trousers, and deconstructed suiting, Missoni’s motorbike-inspired Spring 2019 men’s collection was an homage to Angela Missoni’s late brother, Vittorio.
Massimo Giorgetti’s newfound obsession with anime inspired a colorful collection punctuated with hoodies and oversized cotton shirts bearing images from the ’80s Japanese anime Attacker You.
Backstage, “sexy” was the word Miuccia Prada used to describe her Spring 2019 men’s offering. On the runway, this culminated into psychedelic prints, tailored jeans and jackets, and plenty of micro-shorts— or “miniskirts for men”, as the designer called them.
Men’s power suits came in bold, highlighter hues, pinstriped prints, and worn over graphic T-shirts emblazoned with a tabloid print, proving to be anything but basic.
