Milan's Moda Uomo Fashion Week
While we're waiting for the high sewing to get ready in Paris, in a few days time, Milan is going to be a busy place this week. 46 different brands, and a total of 118 collections are expected to run over the five days. The focus is men, and although we're delighted to see a complete homage to the other gender, most of the collections so far have been completely mad. While Jill Sander opened up the week with a typically German collection, Alexander McQueen suggests that feathers, sequins, and buttons are the key features for men next spring/summer. What Vivienne Westwood had been up to looses a lot in translation - go check it out yourselves! Christopher Bailey's charming country boy influences for Buberry Prorsum were nice enough, but when he brought in the 'car sales man' double sided dinner jacket from 1987, he'd clearly gone too far. (Below, one of Alexander McQueen's numbers).
