Designers have been rewriting the rule book for sophistication at this season's Milan Fashion Week Men's, with Marni and Magliano bringing suits up to date with a cool twist, while M1992 took a more structured approach.
Milan has lost Prada, MSGM and N°21. Giorgio Armani, however, will be there in force, both opening and closing the event, which welcomes four new names: Youser, David Catalan, Edithmarcel and Miguel Vieira.
At Milan Men's Fashion Week, Dorian Tarantini for M1992 and Luca Magliano for Magliano showcased two high-calibre collections, well-crafted down to the last detail, each with a distinctive personality.
The three-day Milan Men's Fashion Week kicking off on January 11 features a much-changed line-up, losing eight names, including Giorgio Armani, and introducing eight new ones, among them John Richmond.
With buzzy newcomers and big name label comebacks, plus a slate of special projects and events, Pitti Uomo promises to be a particularly interesting and intense program this season, kicking off January 9 in Florence.
This season, the men's tradeshow takes inspiration from the cinema, unveiling a "film festival" theme for January. The return of major names, as well as special events and new collaborations, are all part of the glamour.
