With all this football talk over the last week or so, we’ve barely had a chance to mention Menswear Fashion Week in Milan. The likes of Roberto Cavalli and Vivienne Westwood have had such inspirational catwalk shows, giving us a sneak peek into what style conscious men will be wearing next summer. It all kicked off last Saturday with Dolce & Gabbana, who were celebrating their 20th anniversary in Menswear. With so many gorgeous menswear looks – and models – on the catwalk we were spoilt for choice, but our firm favourite in the office was Versace.
Inspired by their archives and photography by renowned fashion photographer Bruce Weber, the collection has a definite Eighties vibe. We loved the new suit silhouette, which was very fitted with slightly shortened sleeves and trousers rolled up at the ankle. As well as sleek and sophisticated suits, they also had some more casual, rockabilly-inspired looks with fringed leather and plaid shirts. The collection featured a lot of black but with splashes of white, aqua blue, pink and red which are refreshingly summery.
Here are some staple pieces you can use to achieve this look at an affordable price:
Invest in a dark navy suit, that you can wear with a contrasting collar shirt. You can also mix the jacket with a lighter shade of trousers, and for days when you don’t need a formal jacket, pair the lighter trousers with a checked shirt.
You don’t need to spend a million to look like a million dollars…
