The menswear shows in Milan have just wrapped up, with designers including Fendi, Gucci and Armani showing their visions for next winter. These are our highlights from the runways.
Fendi (above) looked to the cords and stripes worn by bookish British academics.
Gucci (above) completely redesigned its collection following the premature departure of creative director Frida Giannini, and it was all lithe rockstars wearing their girlfriends’ silk or lace blouses.
Prada (above) showed the women’s pre-fall collection alongside its menswear in a show that focused on a monochrome palette cut through with camel.
Marni (above) showed a sculptural collection with a Seventies vein and statement tunics.
Missoni’s muse (pictured above) was a travelling man on the Trans-Siberian railway.
Ferragamo (above) looked to invalid soldiers returning from the Crimean War, and used folksy embellishment.
Versace (above) focussed on silhouette and a softer cut than previous seasons, in a palette based in neutrals.
Armani (above) worked from a typically sombre palette of grey, blue and black and was all soft tailoring and flashes of checks.
