Yet another Milan fashion week started, this time dedicated to men’s fashion. If that exists any more, because I don’t really think a lot of men will go for the looks we’ve seen on the runway so far. Do you think this gladiator inspired style by Versace will be on anyone’s shopping list for Spring/Summer 2013?
Another show I found interesting was the one by Dolce & Gabbana. First of all, a big change when it comes to the choice of models. Instead of the usual D&G hunks, this time there were more preadolescent looking kids on the runway. When it comes to the collection itself, it does seem, allegedly, that ever since D&G started focusing on one main theme for each collection, that main inspiration usually comes from some other designer’s previous collection. For this years women’s collection it is all about fruits and vegetables, a theme that Stella McCartney explored a year before. You can read all about it here.
And for the new men’s collection, the structured tops with extravagant prints, combined with stripe shorts, and vice versa, remind me of the S/S 2011 Prada collection. Check out the two photos above and below and let me know of you too notice some resemblance between these two collection.
