MILAN MEN’S FASHION WEEK SS14 – 3
First show of the day was Diesel Black Gold. Diesel Black Gold showed what they are good at: jeans and leather. In every look one of each would come across. The most striking were the complete white looks, in which you could see the quality and details of each item even better. Another surprising item was the belt which was worn almost as a corset. A good start of the (early, early) day.
The second show was a very happy one. All the models that entered the runway smiled. Which was nice to see after all the serious, but pretty, faces. The show we are referring to is Emporio Armani. The Armani shows are always very entertaining. Since they use many models, and they mostly walk in pairs. This time was no exception. Concerning the collection the way they handled the fabrics was beautiful. Woolen suits which almost had lots of relief in the print. And the favorite item for Niels were the leather shorts which you see on one of the pictures. Other than that we saw many metallics and stunning and surprising transparent broque shoes.
One of the other shows we attended was Etro. Unfortunately it was impossible to make good pictures of the show itself. However this image shows exactly what the show was about. A mix of young and old. A mix of classic and casual. The mix of the grey older models, and the younger boys made the show fun to watch. The styling of the show was splendid. Very italian, very colorful and lots of prints.
And suddenly we arrived in a musical setting. Antonio Marras organized an event for the collaboration with Piquardo. The event was hosted in an hotel in the centre of Milan. In the middle of the room was a dance floor which was fenced. On the dance floor were a live band and dancers performing. It looked like a movie setting while the dancers were dancing on rock and roll music. Such a fun way to show the handbag collection.
Niels attended the Moncler drink, in honor of the flagship store in Milan.
Linda was invited to a dinner with Dondup in Casa Dondup. An amazing restaurant, delicious food and a great atmosphere (more about this restaurant will follow soon). After dinner Chiara and Ricardo and I went to the MSGM and Toilet paper party. I really enjoyed my last night in Milan! Can’t wait to be back in September.
