Knock knock! Who is it? The most stylish man in Italy. And he’s wearing everything you need to know (and want to have) for coming season. Cause it’s Men’s Fashion Week (yes, we cheer for that!!) There’s an entire man squad making its way through Milano right now looking better than ever. And what can we say: this will make you want to update your closet sooner than later. Time to round up the 8 strongest looks from the catwalks.

Wether you go on a hiking trip, a walking tour, on safari or exploring a city, make you sure you look as fine as our Milanese men right here. The outdoor trend is presumably started by Versace. You no longer have to be ashamed wearing nylon zip-ups, backpacks, athletic leggings and a good ‘crocodile hunter’ hat. That’s the way to go. Also seen at: Moncler, Prada.

Three’s a trend: enter the modern journeymen. The idea that traveling is all about comfort and ease, no, we’re not taking it anymore. You have to look good while exploring the world, and that’s even possible in a suit. And how obvious can it be with Prada shirts covered with hand-drawn symbols of world travels. You better book that ticket fast. Also seen at:  Missoni, Marni.

Just like last season, blue is still the rage. And we’re not just meaning blue, but REAL eye catching cobalt blue. It’s one of the strongest and coolest colours for men, but it’s up to you how to dispense it. If you want to go all the way, your permission lays here in Milano. Just ask Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino, Vivienne Westwood or Dsquared.

Definitely not just a trend for the ladies, but also the gents got tied up this time. And the proof is here in front of you: Versace, Valentino, Ferragamo, and Fendi all showed men wearing tailored coats and jackets with a cinched waist.

What makes the man? Definitely the suit. What makes a dandy? Same answer. But that doesn’t mean the definition of smart tailoring isn’t fluid. And if you thought so, now you know it’s not. And it’s more clear than ever. The chapter of the art of proportions isn’t finished yet. We still got some pages to turn. The interplay of tailoring, sports and casualwear is rebalancing, playing with new proportions, streamlined details and well-defined shapes. Seen at: Sisters by Sibling, Jil Sander, Marni.

It may not rain that often in Milan, but we spotted a lot of raincoats on the catwalk. Showing you the best gear to ride out the storm and survive the rainy days or quick showers after a hot summer day. Make sure you have a light weighted parka or flashy (silver) raincoat by hand as your perfect battle armour.Seen at: Prada, Versace.

One of the most talked about words in 2015 was ‘gender’, or better said: gender fluidity. Something that not only started by celebs like Kristen Steward and Miley Cyrus, but also the fashion industry is one of the biggest players in this game changing development. And it shows again this season, with men wearing female-considered items like furry coats, flower print jackets and glitter tops.
Seen at: Dsquared, Fendi, Diesel by Gold.

The billion dollar fashion industry may be quite serious on the financial front, but let’s not forget it’s mostly about the fun wearing the clothes. Otherwise the designers will help remind you this. Seen at:  Dolce&Gabbana, Dsquared.
