Milan Menswear Fashion Week kick of the s/s 11 season in grand style. Offering five days of exciting shows presenting premium ready-to-wear style from a collection of the world’s best designers, there is no question of the event’s influence. An array of top trends hit the esteemed runways highlighting next summer’s ‘looks de jour’ with relaxed sophistication and vibrant festivity underpinning the mood of the season. Crumpled linens, worn and open knits and painted denim mark a trend for ‘salvage fabrics’ while super bold colour-blocking and graphic piping have a 90’s techno-sports appeal. Bright brilliant blue emerges as the hue of choice bringing energy to everything from casual separates to smart suiting while the crop top is pushed as a daring seasonal basic.
