According to the Milan designers, the menswear fashion next season will be easy to wear and will be athletic even if the wearer is not. The clothes will be inspiring and might even make the wearer do some exercise.
Sportswear has been the inspiration of a lot of collections on the runway during the Milan Fashion Week. Jackets were seen in a lot of models and they come in various designs, such as short bombers to long overcoats. Trousers are cropped and close-fitting. As for shorts, designers went for Bermudas.
There were several types of footwear on the runway during the Milan Fashion Week. Some of the favorites include snug, slip-ons, high top sneakers, and sandals. Outfits are designed for urban exposure and not for any rugged adventure.
Day 1 of the Milan Fashion Week featured a lot of colors. On the second day, fashion previews showed that designers went for paler shades. They preferred high tech fabrics for a low fuss look. Wrinkles and crinkles were made to be part of the clothes.
Prada said that summer is for the classic denim look. Miuccia Prada decided for the conservative look as Italy is still trying to get out of the economic downturn. She said that the times require some seriousness.
Prada’s collection is based on the classic denim look with top stitching. It was described by the designer as classic Prada. They kept the elements simple with a color palette of brown, beige, blue, and dark green. Most of the looks consisted of a light blue shirt to reflect the waters of a swimming pool.
Jil Sander is undergoing a transition as the collection was made by a design team that bridges the gap from Sander’s exit from the label and the upcoming collection from the new designer Rodolfo Paglialunga in September.
