Milan Men’s Fashion Week: Giorgio Armani, Missoni and Diesel Black Gold

As Milan Men’s Fashion Week drew to a close yesterday relaxed tailoring took to the fore with designers opting for a smart casual look in sandy summertime shades.

Designer sportswear label Diesel Black Gold showcased a more mature look, yet still kept a casual edge teaming tailoring with relaxed attire. Looks included blazers and waistcoats paired with jeans and bomber jackets matched with tailored shorts. Throughout the collection geometric patterns were prevalent whether used as a print across suits or as trims.

Relaxed suiting was the order of the day at Giorgio Armani with the designer sending models down the catwalk in crumpled tailoring in lightweight materials. Pieces included sports jackets, linen shorts and breezy knitwear. The colour palette was made up of dusty and stoney tones, with splashes of white and midnight blue. Proportion also played a key part in the collection with long jackets teamed with pleated trousers.

Sandy tones prevailed in Missoni’s spring 13 collection with utility jackets, Bermuda shorts and embellished knits all in earthy shades. Angela Missoni utilised weaving patterns across suiting and jackets giving the range an ethnic feel. Towards the end the sandy tones gave way to richer colours with ruby red and beetle green glints from sequins and threading.
