I clearly remember my days as a student of fashion in Milan… Mmmm… Walking the streets of this city I adore so much, seeing all those gentlemen in their suits heading to their usual caffè, l’ufficio e il sempre aperitivo alla fine della giornata… Ah…. It was living life on a runway where extraordinary tailoring and pure elegance were the essence of it all… Perfect!
Therefore, when MILANO UOMO fashion week comes, we know great things happen fashionwise… here some TRENDS FALL/WINTER 2015 to take into consideration when your Italian inner passionate boy needs to come out… Do let ‘him’ be, please!
One cannot expect but the best from the genius Italian sartorial know-how... But this time it was about an EASIER ELEGANCE. Collections felt more casual, mostly because of suits with freer cuts, edgier printed fabrics, color-blocking and for pairing tailored jackets and suits with less formal pieces.

Great pieces and detailing reflecting an inviting MILITARY MODERNITY will certainly fulfill the expectations of those fearless urban warriors and army-boy spirited. Let us just say that this trend is a ‘must’ when it comes to men’s power-dressing code. (Images: Ports 1961, Diesel Back Gold & Dirk Bikkenberg)
For the riskier ones; a variety of graphic prints, motifs, color-blocking and details turned looks into ARTSY and cool compositions; never quitting the innate elegance of these Italian runways. (Images: Gucci, MSGM & Marcelo Burlon)
Edgy VELVET-like fabrics and details concealed that great modern spirit of many men today. Velvety pieces in opulent colors stated somehow an out-of-the-ordinary good taste. (Images: Costume National, MSGM & Roberto Cavalli)
LIGHT-HUED SUPREME STYLE
Very elegant and subtle ensembles in exquisite earthy colors such as camel, dust, beige, caramel; stood out; and delightfully added soft touches to many collections. The best part of it is that no matter your lifestyle and taste; you will find so many pieces to love in these hues; many of them ideal to combine with darker ones! (Images: Canali, Brioni & Etro)
