The highlight of day 2 at Milano Moda Uomo, being the new Neil Barrett headquarter at via Ceresio 7 is for the first time the backdrop of the Spring/Summer 2018 show. This space represents the evolution of the collection, created while the building was constructed around it and intimately influenced by its minimalism, linearity and precision. It underlines the singularity of creative vision; it is a definitive statement of the aesthetic of Neil Barrett.
Coming up next was the Christian Pellizzari man and woman show for Spring/Summer 2018, influenced by the Italian city, reproducing the pattern of Piazza San Marco’s pavement on shorts and jackets. The shapes were kept simple in the men’s lineup, given the richness of the motifs. “There is a bit of Tadzio in ‘Death in Venice’ [by Thomas Mann] in the collection,” Pellizzari said.
Whilst, Emporio Armani presented Asian motif for Spring/Summer ’18. As the Armani Teatro hosted the brand’s sartorial collection, along with outerwear. The designer closed his show by debuting the commercial for his new smartwatch, Emporio Armani Connected, starring Shawn Mendes.
Philipp Plein clothes brought the Fifties vibes in black T-shirts with rolled sleeves, leather jackets, tight jeans with sparkle. The designer took a bow by riding into the catwalk in a gold hummer with an entourage of models and motors.
