Milan Fashion Week: Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Marc Jacobs

Military marched out onto the menswear catwalks of Milan yesterday with Sarah Burton at McQueen serving up a triumphant autumn 11 collection.

Alexander McQueen, creative director, Burton focused on the commercial theme of military for autumn 11 and looked to regimental themes for the season, with Victorian gunner jackets - complete with gold braiding, trench coats, shearling collars and white, flood-length Naval trousers making a strong showing. Splashes of red were employed, and were rendolent of red, infantry miltary sashes.

Frida Giannini is at the helm of one of Italy’s most powerful fashion houses in Gucci and she didn’t disappoint. SB suiting featured loose but tailored trousers and slim-line jackets in chalky 1970s pastels and neutrals, khaki and black.

Military and equestrian were the two key themes at Marc Jacobsas the designer played with fur-collared coats and two-button suits with pitched anvil esque shoulders on display. Prints by New York graffiti artist Bast on caramel, knitted jumpers added a contemporary twist.
