Milan Fashion Week FallWinter'13 | Menswear

This month great Menswear collections were showed at Fashion weeks like London, Milan and Paris.
Italian designers are always looking for new perspectives and point on view. Tailoring as the masterpiece and the look of menswear is now re-viewd with high-tech fabrics and luxury fur, introduced in menswear like it has been here forever.
So, let's talk about my favourite shows in Milan...

Burberry Prorsum
Burberry Prorsum

Ok. I always love Christopher Bailey's work, and this is no exception. This collection was called 'I love Classics', and sure we do. 
I always love a beautiful coat in camel or militar green, and I never resist to the great fashion experiences that Bailey always do with great high-tech materials, like the latex coats. Burberry Prorsum, for me always means Outerwear. It's all about the trench, the coats and amazing tailoring. And I don't even need to talk about the great accessories and technological advances that this brand always show us so well.
The classic Burberry pattern were in bags, scarfs and accessories, but always mixed with leopard print, seen in those amazing shoes, fur coats and beautiful iPad cases.
Oh, I forgot, don't you love those leopard print sunglasses? I'm sooo ready!!

This Gucci collection is very colorful, but in a dark way. I just see beautful colors in dark shades like burgundy, olive green, and almost '50 shades of grey' in that magnificent fur coat! Clear blues opened the collection and aguen Outerwear were the masterpiece of the show, like in so many others this season.
I loved the details, like silk scarfs inside polos or turtle-necks, the luxury fabrics, and also the bags. And the tuxedos at the end of the show... So beautiful.
Did you saw Clement Chabernaud with the last look of the collection, with that coat? Ugh-mazing!


Surprisingly Kenzo is becoming one of the best young brands by the hands of Humberto Leon and Carol Lim. They are creating new house-codes from the brand and with this "Above the sky & beyond" collection, we can notice that so well. Creating a romantic and sophisticated men, inspired by the sky in graphics and cuts, including 'Tiger Fever', that is already an icon of the brand.
It's a collection that makes you dream above the sky, create fantasis and see the difference between night and day.

Fendi, just a few seasons ago created their menswear line. Like the ID of the brand, it's all about fur, luxury and creativity. We notice oversized coats, capes and beautiful colors, like the magnificent yellow in that coat. Many pieces had fusion materials like a coat from leather to whool, or the red shirt showed here. I would love be in one of these coats in the freezing days that we are living, so Silvia Fendi, if you hear me (or read...) I'm here! Waiting...

Prada | FallWinter'2013 Menswear

In one of my favourite runway sets, a minimal house with Rem Khoolaas furniture produced by Knoll, that perfectly match one of the most 'normal' Prada shows. But we know this is Prada by Miuccia, so we know that this 'normality' is not what it seems...
She said about this collection that is "one of the most sophisticated I've ever done". But, How? You ask.
She explains it so much better:

"Simplicity is so difficult. To make perfect something that is normal and classic is much harder."

And what we see just here, is incredibly beautiful. I mean... You want to wear everything! I want it! And that is what Fashion is about. Those normal clothes with perfect 'shades' of blue, yellow and red, full of leather details, perfect fabrics and the perfect cut in jackets and shirts.

That is a collection that talks to me about innocence, in a creative way that explores perversity in some point... We can talk about these clothes as 'normality' but we shure know that it's not about 'banality'.
Those beautiful and amazing shoes that I want to wear right now, are just a new classic in such a different way.

We know that this is so 'normal', but 'different'.

It's controversial. So Miuccia and so Prada.
