Tuesday’s Milan shows had less of a casualwear focus than the previous days, with tailoring revived through injections of velvet and leather.
Giorgio Armani played down the casualwear influences seen at many of the earlier shows, keeping a strong focus on tailoring with strong velvet and suede pieces.
Z Zegna’s show saw suits in suede and leather dominating the catwalk. Trousers were kept tight and tapered, while jackets were a mix of classic doublebreaseted cuts and tight zip-up biker shapes.
D&G ventured more down the casualwear route with models layered to within an inch of their lives. Outerwear was strong with flight jackets and fake fur details. Ski influences had a dominant presence with loose ski pants, cotton all-in-ones and chunky knitwear and scarves.
