Men’s Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012
Milan men’s Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012 started. Burberry Prorsum and Prada in my view, one of the most striking shows so far.
Chief creative officer Christopher Bailey put craftsmanship at the heart of the Burberry Prorsum collection. “I wanted to celebrate the idea of craftsmanship. I love the whole digitalisation of the world. But I don’t think one has to be at the expense of the other,” Bailey said backstage after Saturday’s show. I love the stitching, prints, geometric shades and the natural colour palette which you see in the collection.
Prada, a already many discussed show and collection. The inspiration for Muccia Prada is obviously Golf. The basic theme of the collection was ‘Americana.’ For me a favorite because of the striking items in the collecion. The floral trousers, the shirts with cartoon characters, golf related items like the shoes in amazing pastel shades (I know I’m a woman, but these shoes are on my wishlist. If they are not available in my size, it’s a must for my boyfriend. Anyway these shoes are in a shoe rack in Westerpark next summer.) Furthermore the suits, studded jackets and clutches (Must have and wishlist Hunter Niels) are amazing.
I look forward to the shows of tomorrow.
