The second day of Milano Moda Uomo unveiled yet more menswear delights, and with the winter collections came a focus on all things textural. From the fur pieces at Marni to the woolen draping at Vivienne Westwood, there was plenty to satisfy the senses at the second day of Milan’s Menswear Fashion Week.
At the Marni presentation, silhouettes were constructed with minute attention to detail: fur collars adorned camel coats and astrakhan inserts were seen on jackets and trousers. A palette of earthy browns, greens and blues were juxtaposed with statement floral shirts, creating a visual balance of block colouring and print details. Marni has proven its worth in the field of menswear, but this collection was proof that the house has even more unexplored realms of refined designs in store.
Universes collided in the Vivienne Westwood show, in what was a brilliant fusion of a vast number of subjects, which ranged from pop iconography to climate revolution, and even ventured into sci-fi with Marvel-inspired hair. Vivienne Westwood created a complex collection, drawing the onlooker into a game of spot-the-reference (we might call it post-modern, if you will). From almost sheer nylon trenches to vegetable-dyed knitwear, Westwood crafted an incredible layering of textures, fabrics and materials.
Milano Moda Uomo’s second day was also a celebration of all things footwear related, with Giuseppe Zanotti Design Homme showing their new collection of shoes, which included everything from high-tops to dress shoes. An emphasis was placed on the embellished details, with an effervescence of gold detailing. With just a hint of disco and of a 1980s’ night-out, the designs were quite simply as close to eye-candy as footwear can get.
At Cesare Paciotti, a focus on rock and punk culture was seen, with a capsule collection of embellished goods comprising leather-wear, knitwear and fur pieces, which were on show alongside the new collection of footwear. Not only did Cesare Paciotti’s collection excel in terms of the quality of the leathers and of the manufacturing, but the designs were full of fantasy and imaginative freedom to boot (no pun intended).
