...for the fellas...

It's Men's Fashion Week in Milan (well, it was!)  I sometimes wonder why the men's collections don't get as much attention as the women's collections.  I know one of the reasons is obviously that we ladies have more options with regard to wardrobe - AND we spend more money on our clothes.

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...

Alexander McQueen

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

Bottega Veneta showed a fresh interpretation on color blocking and textile blocking to make business colors new and different. 

Burberry Prorsum

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.

Calvin Klein

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!
