MILAN MENSWEAR A/W’2015-2016: DAY 4
Day 4 of Milan Fashion Week witnessed an assortment of some of the biggest Italian fashion houses. From Gucci’s fresh chapter post-Giannini to TOM REBL’s metallic funk, fashion week at day 4 got pretty exciting! Here are snippets of some of the designers that showcased their collection:
Emporio Armani: The Italian fashion brand was all about chic menswear with a muted colour palate in shades of navy blue, black, grey, camel and brown. The acclaimed menswear designer played with subtle prints on seemingly silk jackets with a combination of regular and baggy-fit pants. Fine Italian tailoring was quite evident in the classic coat-pant ensemble. From lambskin leather jackets to shearling stoles, the designer went winter all the way! It seemed like they underwent on a snowy expedition.
Gucci: As Gucci bid adieu to the unexpected farewell of Frida Giannini a month earlier than expected, thoughts about the collection left everyone puzzled. A fresh new Gucci chapter opened as head accessories designer, Alessandro Michele along with a group of young designers went back to the drawing board to redesign the entire collection. The collection was titled ‘Urban Romanticism’. The color palate consisted of tangerine, chocolate brown, cream, navy blue, army green, white and red. As both men and women walked down the ramp, the androgynous trend was quite. While military coats with brass buttons gave a subtle hint of the French Revolution, the Florentine label also played with lace in floral patterns. Men wore regular fit pants with the signature Gucci belts. Gucci was given a fresh makeover under a new direction of fresh talent.
MSGM: The collection displayed took you into a space odyssey with the prints the designer played with. From stars, constellations to rockets in black and grey ensembles, the colour palate for this collection was black, grey, baby pink, aquamarine, tangerine and navy. Corduroy, patent calf-skin leather and silk were some of the fabrics used. The designer also incorporated prints, polka dots, animal print and vertical stripes.
D.GNAK: The collection kept a highly minimalist colour scheme in red, black and white. The designer kept it casual and sporty with rugby socks and loose silhouettes. Opting for simple geometric patterns and prints men, the collection showcased was very utilitarian.
TOM REBL: A funky mix of metallic with black, the designer went glam all the way through his collection. The range of garments showcased prints, geometric and abstract patterns. Some of the silhouettes displayed had a touch of avant garde in terms of garment construction. From silk to shearling, the designer went luxe all the way. A variety of pant fits from loose to skintight were also on display.
