MILAN FASHION WEEK MENSWEAR SHOWS/ Part 6

DSQUARED

It was "THE HOCKEY HORROR DSQUARED SHOW" complete with its own ice hockey ring for a catwalk! Full of rage, nose bleeds etc. And the sweet transvestite from transsexual Transylvania was the very skinny Bill Kaulitz the lead singer of Tokio Hotel.




The collection included generously cut shirts that resembled hockey jerseys. Some had patent leather appliqued numbers and Canadian maple leafs others a Jason hockey mask in black and white.

Vivienne Westwood

This year Westwood was inspired by what she called "the roving vagrant whose daily get-up is a battle gear for the harsh weather conditions" what we call the homeless people. I think she was more inspired by DERELICTE by MUGATU to be honest.

I am not sure if anyone can actually pull this style off, but somehow the Westwood vagrants will face the all weather conditions in style!



"Spare Change?"

A Vagrant Queen, he probably ate the dogs already and made them into boots!



Chim chiminey
Chim chiminey
Chim chim cher-ee!
A sweep is as lucky
As lucky can be

Love you Vivienne really!

PRADA

Miuccia Prada went all all American preppy with accents of bold streetwear style patterns such as a colourful camouflage and 70s geometrics. Love those short cardigans and jumpers that finish at the waist exposing the shirts.

Versace
If Terminator had sex with Tron and had babies that would be it. Love the folded, darted leather jackets, leather bags and jackets that looked as if they had been studded with ball bearings. Tailored wool felt trousers and jacket lapels coated to a mirror-like finish with polyurethane making it look like patent leather.

MILAN FASHION WEEK MENSWEAR SHOWS/ Part 2

Allexander McQueen

My favorite menswear show, McQueen called it "An bailitheoir cnámh," (a Gaelic phrase that means "the bone collector") and based the collection on the lives of the seafaring natives who survive the harsh conditions near the N/S poles the ends of the earth.

The result was insane ice-print shirts, melting-ice jacquards on wool on silk suits and on leather. Mohair suits, leather parkas, bags and gloves were printed to look like they'd been made from fur. The prints were also extended to accessories like bags gloves and shoes.








The repetition of pattern, as well as the gray-black color palette and rounded shoulder-line on some shirts, sweaters and jackets, turned the models into reptiles.



There was that chunky cable-knit sweater a gray knitwear piece that i fell in love with. The origins of the cable-knit designs goes back in the day when each fisherman would have a unique design to his sweater so that when bodies that had been swept out to sea later washed ashore unrecognisable, they could be returned to their families for proper burial. Sad but true!

I can't wait to get my hands on some ice-melting jacquards or some scale-like jacquard printed trousers.

Alexander McQueen pure genius!

MILAN FASHION WEEK MENSWEAR SHOWS/ Part 1

Men's fashion week opened in Milan on Saturday 17th January, my favorite week in January! Not really a week as it only lasts 5 days but well, 5 days full of menswear fashion enough to get you craving for Autumn to arrive again!

Burberry Prorsum a/w 10

Forget about the summer i want to get my hands on one of those insane Burberry brass armor like shoulder detailed sweaters.






It is all about outwear, heavy coats, classic pieces that were amplified in silhouette and details.



Overall a modern military inspired collection. The show was broadcasted online, following the new craze of live streaming shows. Watch the full show at (http://live.burberry.com)

Cristopher Bailey you did it again! oops
