Milan Men’s Fashion Week continued yesterday with an array of relaxed tailoring from the Italian masters.
Gucci offered up a dandyish feel for its menswear with one-button jackets layered over deep v-necked cardigans and jumpers worn with light, rolled cotton scarves. Drawing from the archives of Gucci’s 1970s heyday, Frida Giannini conjured up a bohemian yet colonial look with tailored safari jackets and slim-legged white trousers. Suede and leather were still out in force with a brown snake skin-look jacket and a weathered double-breasted buttoned biker adding to the 1970s vibe. Knitwear was chunky and loose-fitting in oversized cardigans and open-necked jumpers.
While Dolce & Gabbana sered up an Italian seaside look at the weekend, diffusion line D&G stuck to the garden and the golfing green yesterday with checked cotton blazers teamed with belted cotton shorts and knitted polos. Knitwear was kept fine and round-necked to give a preppy feel with khaki, beige and pale green tones dominating. Fine cotton blazers and trousers had a look of weathered denim.
Ermenegildo Zegna gave the crowds a tailored but relaxed collection with light linen jackets and trousers teamed with loose leather belts. Suits came in a variety of shades from crisp white double-breasted styles to heavier bright blues and yellows. A smart, dockside theme dominated with the tailored linen off-set with smart loafers and sandals.Outerwear was heavy on detail with leather piping and small leather buckles on cuffs and pockets.
