For the past few days, the ongoing high on glitz and glamour extravaganza Milan Menswear Fashion Week has been presenting a dazzling array of autumn/winter 2013-14 creations by the most prominent and renowned fashion houses of the world.
Dolce & Gabbana, the Italian luxury fashion house, kicked off the event with its Sicily-inspired collection based on plenty of religious ethos. The line showcased a delightful blend of brightly coloured loose fitting shirts topped with prints of Virgin Mary and other religious symbols, as well as long over-sized coats with furry collars.
Italian luxury label Prada featured a deeply conventional collection on the second day of the event. The range was an exclusive mix of camel coats with a touch of teal on the neck, straight cut trousers, check-shirts, round-necked sweaters and thick-waist jackets with laser precision cuts based on eye-catching colour combinations.
Italian fashion and leather goods brand Gucci, under the guidance of its artistic director Frida Giannini, presented a romantic collection infused with generous hints of modernism. Made with a healthy mix of sleek silhouettes and techno fabrics, the range included military redingotes, mohair jumpers, loose trousers and classic tuxedo jackets with lavish silk lapels in black.
Emporio Armani, one of the sub-labels of international Italian fashion label Armani, showcased an upbeat collection on the third day of the event. The line featured supremely sleek business suits, jewel-toned bulky pullovers, velvet dinner jackets and slim-fitting ankle-cropped pants on a basic palette of blue and asphalt, with occasional dashes of yellow, orange, emerald green and purple.
