Kicking back from the formal elegance of Pitti Uomo, Milan’s mens fashion week took on a more relaxed and laidback vibe that was nothing short of enjoyable. Here are some of our favourite looks from the runways of Milan.

Damir Doma

Damir Doma’s show was a sharp departure from the structured details at Pitti Uomo. The finishings were raw and minimal, yet cut a gorgeous silhouette that was far from plain. The oversized sleeves and ankle culottes, paired with careful layers of kimono jackets made the collection stand out.

Gucci

Continuing their 70s throwback on the runway, Gucci’s went full-on retro as we see combinations of palettes of camel and bell bottom pants, paired with rounded sunglasses and above the waist belts. The collection took a full turn to a romantic summer vibe and while this may not be suitable for all occasions, it was definitely a playful and bold direction this time around.

Fendi

Never say Fendi’s collections are simple, no matter how much they look to you. Beyond the plain palettes and simple cuts lie a greater attention to details. The fabrics and a lux finish to them, drop shouldered coats were cut from python, suede and leather, and shirts gleamed with soft gold and silver undertones. The finesse of Fendi’s collection was simply exquisite.

Armani

Armani continues to bring its A game to the runway. In true classic fashion, staples such as the muted colours, slim-fitted curves of the jackets and comfortable looking suits stand out. Armani’s ability to unstuff menswear and make it simple yet elegant continues to be a true marksmanship of excellent cutting and tailoring.

Dolce & Gabbana

Taking on a very east asian influence to this collection, the runway was a parade of peacocks, dragons and bamboo forests printed on silk or embroidered on lace. Each outfit presented an amalgamation of old and new, but there was never a sense of banality to it as Dolce & Gabbana seemingly continue to reinvent themselves. The collection was a graceful blend of east and west, old and new, and a refreshing change of pace.
