Over time a lot of emphasis has grown on the men’s fashion week. It is very much as awaited as the women’s fashion week. During the early weeks of January the streets of Milan is overloaded with good looking male models. So, the hint arrives – Fall/Winter collections are on its way to be showcased.

This season of Fall 12-13 was a journey through spirituality to bohemian; contemporary way of using classic to smart urban neo look.

The experimentation remains a question when it comes to men’s fashion. Suits are seen as a main identity, may it be classic or leather. The length varied from designer to designer, Frankie Morello used lots of studs and buttons but finally the models went to a naked look with a very Indian look. Costume National was very clean with space age look-white, black and bottle green was his major colors; Jil Sander’s Raf came with a all black serial killer look with a very interesting sound track and rubber floor. Young Daniele followed the foot step of their family and showcased stylish attire with flora fauna and vibrancy. Purple, yellow, black and electric blue colors created a very modern sophistication look. CK showed his luxury sports look with leather pants and panels of reptile leather at places; this was off course the touch of the Italian designer Italo Zucchelli, who succeeded in bring luxury to affordability. The collection of Armani and Gazzarrini were a level of class. Armani showcased its modern interpretation of classic, the colors was black, grey and royal blue. Gazzarrini was bit more experimental by using pink color and sleeveless shirt, though the presence of black, grey and beige was also seen to minimize the risk.

Each designer highlighted accessories in their unique way. Electric blue briefcase bag from FM, big black leather hand bags and clutches from Costume National, Jil Sander’s sophisticated clutch bags. Armani’s brown tote bag and black clutch was the master craft. Shoe’s was mostly black, grey and beige with a variation between broke shoes, classic shoes and boots. The trend this season will be very sophisticated spiritual and bohemian look, classic jacket with a reinterpreting of modernity, some eye catching vibrant colors which will break the monotonous of the winter. A petite accessory to coordinate with the attire plays a very important role and this is well represented by each designer in the form of bags and gloves.

Overall Milan stands out to be a very successful and commercial center for fashion again, may it be women’s or men’s.
