MILAN MENSWEAR A/W’2015-2016: DAY 3
Day 3 of Milan Fashion Week had an interesting mix of designers who had their own statements to make on the runway. From Vivienne Westwood’s plaid-on-plaid extravaganza to Moncler Damme Bleu’s twist on classics, here are some of the hottest collections of Day 3, Milan Fashion Week A/W’2016:
N°21: The collection had a sporty-casual feel to it. The garments were featured in shades of black, smoky grey, sandy brown and tan. Men walked down in straight fit pants and the hard-to-miss sandals and socks combination. The collection comprised of prints like argyle, solid colours like bright yellow and stripes.
Salvatore Ferragamo: Layer and more layers was the essence of this collection, as men marched down in an assortment of coats both short and long. Draped in fringed scarves paired with regular-fit pants, the models certainly stayed cozy in their ensembles. A variety of designs from floral, print to plaid were showcased in a neutral colour palate of tan, cream, black & white.
Vivienne Westwood: The English designer definitely ‘plaid it well’ with her collection. The colour palate primarily consisted of navy blue, tangerine, black, grey and mustard yellow. The designer experimented with plaid on trousers. The outfit that stood out the most was the plaid-on-plaid ensemble. The designer showcased an array of jackets from long plaid jackets, double-breasted coats to jackets with a shearling trim.
Daks: The collection presented by this particular designer oozed confidence through a red, black, white and grey color palate. From textured long coats to a combination of that with another knit in a short jacket, the designer was all about experimentation and innovation through visual texture and material. Men walked down in straight-fit pants with classic oxfords to go with the ensemble.
Moncler Gamme Bleu: This particular show pretty much stood out today on Day 3 of Milan Fashion Week as the designer used classic old prints like plaid and argyle and gave them a whole new dimension. The colour palate was red, black, white, camel, grey and navy blue. Men looked quite dramatic with the eye-gear as if they were to undertake a snow expedition. They primarily sported tailor single-breasted notched jackets but each with its own funky print.
Day 3 of the designers ended on a funky note with Moncler Gamme Bleu’s collection. A lot of designers showcased collections that spoke of classics in a rather modern manner. There was a splash of colour on the runway, the color palates weren’t as sober as designers incorporated bright colours, especially mustard yellow.
