Fendi was the designer who took inspiration from the hot summer season, making their models walk on sand and embracing the relaxed fit which is perfect for very warm weather conditions. Light fabric, neutral colours and oversized print t-shirts are the rock-solid elements of such collection, lightweight outwear is also available, giving a casual touch to the trench coat, leather jackets and parkas.
It isn’t all about casual wear, as smart-casual suits are available in different hues such as military green and sand.
Interesting the range of accessories, the many weekenders, manbags and satchels seen on the models. As well, impossible not to mention the leather brogues to top up an incredible S/S14 collection.
Surprisingly masculine and ultra-chic: Giorgio Armani brings to the world the most elegant collection for men who LOVE to be men. Forget the swag. This is class! Showcasing a colour palette that ranges from different shades of blue to sand, turns to greys and ends with a sporadic splash of magenta here and there.
The clothes are always very sleek, made of light weight cotton, neoprene material for the bomber jackets and shiny black leathers to mix up the perfect S/S14 collection. Tailoring is once again, seen as the signature piece of the Giorgio Armani brand, demonstrating a wonderful ability in creating the most perfect suits.
John Richmond on the other hand comes up with a mix of sporty and smart casual vibe, matching colorful print bomber jackets with narrow suit trousers, tribal prints and lines motif. The colours stay pretty much around the grey tones but sometimes we get surprised with splashes of orange, red and green.
If you are a fan of knitwear,simple lines and light fabrics, then Ports 1961 gives us an amazing S/S14 collection that focuses on such elements, proposing a very creamy colour palette translated onto lightweight outwear, tailoring and shorts. Conservative and mature, Ports 1961 surprised us with its classic touch and impeccable silhouettes. A collection perfect for the everyday wear to use over and over again.
Z Zegna, which we had the pleasure to stream their show on the blog, brings an unconstructed and relaxed feel to the table, embracing minimalism and the need of simplicity, Z Zegna avoids going over the top with futile embellishment, zips and pockets. Oversized shirts, flare trousers seem to be another big key elements for the Italian brand, bearing in mind the relaxed silhouettes we talked about before, which are suitable for the hot Italian summer heat. Lots of sandals and lightweight bags are the featured accessories of the collection.
To finish off the wonderful Milan Fashion Week parade, The crazy duo team Dean and Dan Caten give us a bit of fun on the runway, the collection is said to be inspired by super legend James Dean and revolving around the survival in the jungle theme, we get to enjoy a great selection of clothes ranging from fun print t-shirts displaying tribal icons, leather jackets, colourful bombers and shorts! Yes, we can finally let go a little and enjoy the sight of muscly models in beachwear and cowboy hats. Tailoring is kept to a minimal, featuring dinner jackets matched with tailored shorts, and made specifically for the young audience – the flowers are meant to give the jacket a very prom vibe. Canadian much?!? We couldn’t be any more pleased by the great job given by the Canadian duo and the Dsquared2 brand.
