However, I think men's collections give designers the opportunity to challenge their creativity as well as showcase impeccable workmanship because men's garments require lots of structure in every piece. With that, here are some highlights from the shows...
McQueen did several double breasted pieces and played quite a bit with subtle plaids and bold pin stripes.
Bally's color palette was an array of browns - my favorite! There was lots of leather as well. I would love to own that travel bag that was shown with the collection.
Bottega Veneta showed a fresh interpretation on color blocking and textile blocking to make business colors new and different.
Burberry went very classic and very proper (like a good Brit) with pops of color - polka dots or stripes or a wildcat - (yes, a wildcat!) here and there.
CK went with a sporty chic theme with hoods on several pieces and lots of outerwear.
Dolce & Gabbana
Dolce & Gabbana had 76 - SEVENTY SIX - looks!!! Some were very crisp, clean, and traditional; others were quirky, fun, and out of the box. All beautiful garments as expected.
Stay tuned for part 2 - it was a busy, busy week in Milan!
