From the past five days, Milan gave us his Men's Fashion Week for the Winter 2011/2012.
I didn't have time to post about every detail, as i would like, but now i show you my favourite collections from this Fashion Week.
This is »Part I«, because many shows thrilled my eyes!!! And all of them in just one post, will be just, boring!
Soo, i hope you like my choices...
Burberry's designer Christopher Bailey loves himself some coats. And this season there are ship loads of em across a range of iconic cuts and fabrics, from a lumberjack coat in buffalo plaid to a duffel in burnt orange to vinyl slickers in shades of toffee and caramel. It's a collection that's deep in the Burberry roots, especially the two-button suits in camel, black and dark moss, but Bailey also mixes things up and reaches into all the references a modern man knows, throwing in Kangol-esque fur caps any MC would dig as well as lug-soled creepers that a new wave '80s boy would rock.
Fifty-odd years of American pop culture gets put in the Italian mix master and spun on 'high'.We've got suits in late-'60s era bold plaids paired with preppy check shirts; T-shirts with big Coca-Cola logos and Mickey Mouse images paired with bright-colored high tops and baggy jeans. There's even a Joe Namath-worthy fur coat.
A nod to Gucci's '70s heritage. Frida Gianni takes that era's colors (dusty rose, brown, camel) and puts them on today's sharply tailored slim suits, then pairs them with shirts and ties in subtle color combinations like teal, tan and brown. This is a quieter swagger for Gucci this season, but don't think it's not a Gucci swagger through and through—not when coats come complete with a curly lamb shearling and fur collars as well as ostrich.
What happens when Teutonic minimalism gets a shot of pop? This. It's like an iconic Joseph Beuys cashmere suit got left in a grade-school art room and retrofitted with bright tempera paint-colors (hyper blue, fuschia and Cheetos orange, among others) to create bold accents. Jil being Jil, the suits and sweaters and shirts are still cut slim and form-fitting, just like the cropped, quilted overcoats that have the feel of '60s Gstaad ski patrol coats.
