We're in full swing of men's fashion month as the world turns to Milan to get it's dose of Italian tailoring. From fashion houses of Damir Doma, DSquared2, Moncler Gamme Bleu and more, it's proven to be a huge couple of days for all involved.
The first day of events went swimmingly, with showgoers exploring the Italian fashion capital in Supreme & Gucci loafers. Braving the cold in multi-faceted layers in a monochromatic palette. We're seeing a similar theme from London & Pitti Uomo where the Grey's and Navy's are taking over!
What you expect of traditional Italian wear are well constructed double-breasted suits and and every bit of suited accessory one could think of. This year's street style has taken a turn, to the luxury athleisure mixed accordingly with well tailored pieces. The zany Italian looks have been muted to a relaxed tonal affair. Don't get me wrong, you'll still see sprezzatura styled gent about town. But it's not in it's usual sense.
Day two and three continued much the same. With more and more denim and classic street aesthetics found, we saw MA-1 bombers and overcoats to Nike Air Max's, mixing in an almost Japanese flavour to traditional Italian looks. None-the-less, statement coats is a continued theme, along with the much needed accessories to make the outfits.
