It´s business as usual in Milan as the fashion train has moved on to Paris for the SS2018 menswear collections. But fashion professionals might have headed to the city of light, there´s still lots of Milan menswear to discuss. So let´s recap on one of the hottest fashion weeks we´ve experienced in a while.

Quite a few trends occurred in Milano. From unusual models to technology (Prada spoke of Virtual Reality while Armani introduced it’s brand new touchscreen smart watch) and from nineties influences to crazy head pieces and boiler suits, here are our Milan Fashion Week highlights.

1. Anyone can be a model
Garderners, convicts, musicians and social influencers were walking the runway in Milan. Canadian pop star (and millennial) Shawn Mendes closed the Emporio Armani show. Former prison inmate Jeremy Meeks walked the runway for Philipp Plein. A landscape gardener from Bulwell, Kai Taylor, took his chances as a Versace model. And of course Dolce & Gabbana formed an army of social influencers (including Raury who protested on the D&G runway).

2. Logomania
Big logo’s and brand names are still a thing and go hand in hand with the nineties revival trend (another gift that keeps on giving). And of course Dsquared, Dolce & Gabbana, Philipp Plein and Versace are the brands most likely to keep that logo look alive. And why shouldn’t they. The simplest branded T-shirts (like that sold-out-everywhere Gucci tee before and the VLTN T-shirt at Valentino now) are making those brands lotsss of money.

3. Boiler suits
Boiler suits, jumpsuits or just matching pants and shirts (that appear to be overalls) are about to become every guy’s go to look for upcoming summer. Workwear inspired, but not entirely suitable for the office.

4. Go shorty
Time to show off some leg boys. Short shorts are the new trend. Luckily for those in doubt there are still tons of shorts-options out there. Diesel paired it’s shorts with leggings, Marni offered a patchwork short, Dsquared suggested some leather boots underneath and at Emporio Armani the shorts were double layered. Long story short: there’s something out there for every man.

5. Hats off
Head pieces came through in all shapes and sizes. So what will it be? A velvet cap (Versace) a Dsquared beanie, Emporio Armani’s leather straps or the only hat fit for a social king, a Dolce & Gabbana crown? Pieces to make or break your summer 2018 outfit. Or at least drive your Instagram account into a frenzy.

It’s officially Summer in the City! Short skirts, off shoulders tops, leather sandals and the sunniest sunnies are all you need this week. And when it comes to the latter, there’s lots of options to choose from. From teeny tiny to XL deluxe. And while every Instagram queen seems to be rocking a pair of white colored eye cat sunnies we spotted a different trend out on the streets. That of the colored glasses. Yellow, orange or red, let’s give the world a touch of color and make the city look even sunnier than it already is. Are you wearing your vintage Ray Bans, your floral encrusted Dolce & Gabbanas or perhaps a brand new sparkly pair of Gucci sunglasses? Sun’s out, sunnies out! Have a good one!

Give a girl a statement suit and she can conquer the world. No seriously a bold suit goes a long way. It work for business meetings, family dinners, fashion parties and just about everything in between. And as shoulders are turning into fashion’s focus point the statement suit of this summer has quite a lot to offer. It is bright colored, oversized and preferably has some kind of accentuated shoulder (pointy, strong, rounded). Something the influencers and streetstyle stars in our gallery already knew months ago. See how Carolina, Doina, Rebecca and Leonore worked this trend during the latest fashion week season. And yes, your hems will get dirty and distroyed, but it’s all part of the oversized, overstated look. Now it’s up to you to decide which sorbet shade you’re going to rock in the upcoming months.

The pajama inspired look just doesn’t seem to get old. After having worked our satin PJ’s in evert major fashion capital we’re slowly moving over to robe dressing. Whether velvet, satin or kimono inspired wearing a robe outdoors is now officially the chicest thing. A trend obviously inspired by the catwalk collections of Haider Ackermann, Lanvin and Burberry. Wear it with some chunky sandals or a good pair of denim jeans to give it that contemporary, urban feel. And of course don’t forget the it-bag, the designer sunnies and that extra cool out of bed hair style. The robe keeps you warm and makes it easy to hide those extra pounds you’d love to shed. Yet another extremely comfy summer trend coming your way. Get up, have breakfast and go!

Summer Streetwear Trend 2017: A whole lotta dress

Just about anything Alessandro Michele has sent out on his Gucci runway has become a hit in the last few years. The loafers, the nerdy glasses, the pleated skirts, the bow tie blouses and the berets. Next it-item introduced by the Gucci God is the costume dress. Of course many of the clothes from his latest show appeared to be coming straight off of a theater’s styling rack, but these dresses overruled everything. First time we took a good look at them they even seemed too dressed up, costume-y, perhaps a little ridiculous? Yet, as it goes with fashion, give a fresh idea a month or six and we’re all head over heals with it. So it was only a matter of time before we were all craving these over the top dresses. And now we don’t even know how we ever survived without them. Clicking through our gallery above you must admit these highly comfortable dresses are the most effortless way of going all out. A showstopper look guaranteed and you can still eat, drink, walk and do a little fashion dance. So there you go, a maxi ruffled dress up on your wishlist. And don’t be shy. Opt for color, print and a little extra sum sum while you’re at it. More is more in Michele’s world.

Summer Streetwear Trend 2017: Side Stripes

Athleisure is all the rage these days. So your wardrobe isn’t complete without a pair of bold trainers, colored hoodies, bomber jackets and statement joggers. Especially the latter have proved to be extremely fashionable and versatile. I mean who would have thought in 2017 you’d be able to attend a meeting in a pair of black and red striped jogging pants? As you can see in our gallery above the styling can make or break the outfit. But the trick is to start thinking of joggers as a neat pair of pleated pants. So mix them up with a deconstructed blouse and some adidas sneakers or pair them with your Gucci (it)-sweater and some good leather loafers. Easy does it and going out was never this comfy.
