MILAN MEN'S AW13 - DAY FOUR
15th January, 2013
Believe it or not, Giorgio Armani is still the most awaited collection of the whole Milan Men's shows every season.
So, even for this Milan Men's AW13, Giorgio Armani is the perfect closing of an outstanding kermess of elegance and sartorialism.
It is always surprising to see how the mind of King Giorgio can concieve and develop two great and so distinctive collections every six months and present them through a catwalk, and make each of them so special and "buyable" in every single aspect: we are talking here of Emporio Armani (main fashion show of Day 3) and Giorgio Armani.
Two massive collections (each one consisting of about 90 different looks) that always show who is the real King of the Italian fashion scene.
And who can neglect that. Just by checking out the first looks of this show, you find every single piece as something you would like to own in your own wardrobe.
From the velvet jackets and suits, to the "gessatos" (pin striped suits in grey), to the typical Armani signature four-buttons jacket (here on the right picture), to the beautiful wool open jumpers, to the coats.
The selection is varied, but consider this as just the essence of the looks in a massive presentation.
Formal sportswear has always been a key message from Dean and Dan Caten.
And when they present this element of formality in their detailed denim looks, you know already it is going to be a success.
So, this season they have re-introduced wool trousers and suspenders, in their usual witty way.
Bow ties and ties under sweater were a key feature of almost every look. As there were all the leather bags and accesories in shiny brown.
Even embroidered black flowers looked quite elegant and sophisticated when applied to white shirts.
And tonal looks in brown and grey (and, of course, blue indigo as the denim they presented) were the strongest pieces.
Here below our favourite picks from this utterly very strong collection.
Only two disturbing notes which seem not to amalgamate with the rest of the collection.
Here below is what we refer to...
DIESEL BLACK GOLD
Diesel Black Gold pushes up, once again, the traditional denim-wear of the main commercial line, enriching it with features and new concepts (such as tailored suits).
Here below our favourite picks from the AW13 show.
Possibly, there is still some work to do... Especially, when you see the two looks below coming front-side...
Yep, front in line within our "NO WAY" section...
Marc Jacobs Men
A nice introduction to the Menswear world for Marc Jacobs.
The standing presentation from the creative director of Louis Vuitton showed some interesting looks that are worth mentioning, such as double-layers (and colours) sweater and the suit jackets with sleeves in different fabrics.
Funny were also some of the accessories, such as the cap with the big grand-ma's pin. Check out below for the key looks from the presentation.
