Milan Men's Fashion Week, Day 2

With Milan Men's Fashion Week in full swing, the trends are emerging and fashion enthusiasts are getting ever more lusty over the new collections. The second day featured shows from Salvatore Ferragamo, Trussardi, Bottega Veneta, Bally, Iceberg, Vivienne Westwood, Ports 1961, Daks, Moncler Gamme Bleu and Caruso.

My favourite collections from Day 2 include Calvin Klein, Missoni and Prada.

Calvin Klein Autumn/Winter 2013

Calvin Klein's Autumn/Winter collection had an abundance of ribbed and quilted jackets and sweaters, but with a more contemporary and futurist aesthetic. Sports luxe elements have carried through from last year, with reptilian leather trainers completing the mostly monochromatic outfits. The trend of ox blood, chocolate brown and deep navy blue has translated into this collection, and in its different shades creates a collection with depth purely through varying colours and simplified ribbed embellishments.

Missoni Autumn/Winter 2013

It was gradients galore at the Missoni Autumn/Winter 2013, the colour palette drawing inspiration from autumn leaves and bringing life to the colours through classic and comfortable fashion design. Accessories such as rugged leather briefcases and totes and are the stand out pieces amongst the myriad of casual chic looks. Missoni has proven their ability to draw on their heritage and design a collection for the modern yet nostalgic man.

Prada Autumn/Winter 2013

A show set full of 60s-70s retro and Bauhaus furniture, the wooden stairs elevates the models to enhance the richness of Prada's latest collection. Though simple in look and detail, the colour choice of the garments complements the retrospective design aesthetic. Prada has managed to modernize 60s and 70s men's fashion to convey the message that fashion is both ephemeral and timeless.
