From Milan runways: Bold, colourful prints rule men’s fashion
Milan took over the autumn/winter 2017 men’s ready-to-wear shows over the weekend, and the city didn’t disappoint. The catwalks were alive with colorful prints that set a bold tone for the season. American designer Jeremy Scott’s collection for Moschino was a riot of bold colour — swirling florals and bold cartoon motifs, all teamed with overexaggerated silhouettes for maximum impact. At Marni, Francesco Risso threw together textures and patterns, incorporating everything from pyjama-style suits to polka-dot pants, immersing the collection with the house’s signature playful vibe. The theme continued over at Missoni, where electric prints ran like currents through the pieces, with zebra stripes, tie-dye patterns and geometric checks all competing for attention. Emporio Armani struck a laid-back yet dynamic tone with a collection invigorated with quirky jolts of colour smart tailoring. While, Salvatore Ferragamo kept things classic — layering sharp tailoring and chunky outerwear for a masculine winter style. Moncler Gamme Bleu also stuck to its design codes of chunky outerwear decorated with a patriotic red white and blue stripe.
A darker, more artistic look also crept onto the runway, with Versace opting for a slightly sinister streetwear vibe that featured plenty of patent leather outerwear, sharp suits and pulled-up hoods. Prada was another house to offer a poetic twist on the season’s pieces, blending soft knitwear bearing abstract prints with grungier leather pieces.
