The menswear fashion caravan has set down for one last big day before it heads on off to Paris during the week, having already set down in London and Florence. Milan is pretty much the defacto capital of Italian fashion. Milan Fashion Week Men's is a place where some of the largest and most influential brands come to show their new collections. Well, at least it was. Through all the change and experimentation, those big names were missed throughout | Days 1 + 2 | but hopefully | Day 3 | will be a different story.
| Day 3 | brought us right back to the 1970's once again - this time with No. 21. A rebel spirted collection with unexpected details made sure that we weren't to be bored at this one. While Etro took us to the Himalayas, with a hiking culture coming through on this collection. Playful at the very least. Speaking of playful, MSGM took a very youthful approach this time around. Creative Director Massimo Giorgetti seems to have spent a bit of time around polo fields, racecourses and probably a couple of castles here and there. We aren't complaining though. Who doesn't love a bit of contemporary? This season, the majority of Milan's designers wanted to keep things simple. They wanted the Milan Man dressed everyday in clothes that you could pull from your gym bag, college wardrobes, sports fields and even hiking trails. Fendi was one of those brands. Oh, I almost forgot - Wood Wood. It spoke for itself.
Hooded parkas, contrasting colour panels, boxy jackets, straight trousers and oversized knitwear - we have seen it all at this seasons Milan Fashion Week Men's. Designers looked to a time when there was more social protest and less social pressure. They searched for a simpler past through experimentation and that brought a whole lot of change. Change that made | Days 1 + 2| very unappealing to me, but experimentation that brought | Day 3 | and Milan Fashion Week Men;s back to life.
