Epic masculinity was at its peak is this season of fall 13-14 at Milan fashion week. I saw some fascinating catwalk of men’s fashion; my day started with Jil sander show military style double breasted red color suit. Again long trench coat with single and double breasted shown up constantly in all the shows, David Bowie’s inspiration was seen in the Costume National homme collection black leather pants and t-shirt with matching black leather satchel. Dolce and Gabbana continued with their traditional Sicilian village style beige t shirt with traditional print, white rose printed black coat though i hope to see something new next month at the donna atleast.  The skinny look of Neil Barrets with a Bauhaus touch impresses my eyes, the beige sweatshirt and tailored black jacket with band collar and black shoes.

Umit Benan tried to do a bit natural winter ambiance around the ramp, dry winter leaves scattered all around, It was a shopper’s feast of double-breasted overcoats, cotton mac raincoats with raglan sleeves, popover hooded anoraks, and leather field jackets.   Simplicity is so difficult to obtain said Prada, the harry style look worn in a distinctly casual way by distinctly normal young men, somehow I feel it’s very my style. For Armani it’s nothing else except classic, a touch of modernity with a sartorial look grey is the color seen throughout the collection. Gucci used a simple feeling with herringbones, hound’s-tooth, and flannels with mohair sweaters and knit polo’s open at the neck, for all it’s trimly tailored, classically fabric, soberly toned salute to tradition.

The runway’s love affair with Russia continues at Canali, the romantic style of pale winter giving an impression of Saint Petersburg luxe, colors dominated were ones of petrol blue, plum, and brick; Rothko colors. Brand that was totally out of the others completely energetic and vibrant was Dsquared; La Nouvelle Noir, 1940s jazz club, their models were bebop hepcats, so recently de-mobbed that one of them was still wearing his khakis. The military precision of his outfit was reflected in the Catens’ hyper-tailored coats and jackets in classic camel, gray flannel windowpane, and Black Watch tartan.

The four day affair with the men in Milan came to a sophisticated end. With-in a month begins a new quest at the women fashion week.
