Milan Fashion: Conservative is the new look

Milan designers stuck to the classics in their menswear collections for next winter, presented during four days of previews that ended Tuesday, but sought to enhance the traditional with a focus on technology and details. Radical fashion choices were definitely out.

Staples – suits, double-breasted and pinstriped, as well as coats – were the mainstays in any collection, coming in urban dark colors: anthracite, navy and slate gray.

Yellow as the stand-out color of the season but baby blue also saw more exposure, showing up even as a monochromatic overcoat.

Details reflected the winter season. Pockets were big and bold, as were some of the buttons or clasps. Men were challenged to try a little lace, on both their outer and underwear and male jewelry included lockets and amulets. In addition to ties, there were kerchiefs knotted neatly at the neck.Read more
