In conclusion of the last runaway shows in Milan five trends have been identified for next Winter: Far West, The Seventies, Pajama-mania, metal love, genderless.
The Far West trend has been brought on the runway by the D&G brand: sweaters are decorated with guns and horseshoes, so it is for trousers and fur coats.
A catchy style that surely does not go unnoticed, in fact they are already talking of Western culture: tartan shirts, overalls and jackets with details in fur.
What does this Far West fashion take inspiration from? The experts of the industry dare say that it is inspired from the movie of the year: “The Hateful Eight” by Quentin Tarantino!
The inspirations from the Seventies are adorable. A shining example is the first male collection designed by Peter Dundas for Cavalli who brought back on the runaways bell-bottom trousers, instead of the double-breasted fur coat, embroidered velvet jackets and scarves tied around the neck. Very persuasive is also the Gucci’s style by Alessandro Michele who brought on the runaways geometric patterns, damask cloths and floral embroidery designs with colored turtlenecks. And what of the practicality to go out in pajamas for men? A fashion trend sanctioned by Owen Wilson who, on the very famous Valentino’s Zoolander-runaway has paraded wearing a silk pajamas and a grey overcoat put on his shoulders!
Hogan has also taken on the challenge with denim-style trousers and silver leather trenches.
Versace presents metal trenches with sartorial style and casual suits in optical fiber.
The Calvin Klein Collection favors bronze, silver and gold colors and bets on casual jackets in polished fabrics – with an almost tinfoil effect.
An absolute innovation or nearly is Genderless, that is the clothing items that can be worn both by men and women. The “borders of fashion” are crossed and Giorgio Armani enlists 10 women for his project “Women who love to wear Giorgio Armani menswear”, while the long, oversize coat rules the roost in a man’s wardrobe. Furthermore, man’s bag is no more a taboo!
