| Buyers, stylists and press flocked to Milan Fashion Week for Menswear to ensure they were the first to get their paws on the future trends of fashion.
It's the last day of Milano Moda Uomo, and on the eve before Paris- arguably the most talked about fashion week whatever the gender- lets take a look back at some of the highlights from the Autumn/Winter '18/'19 collections and the trends that ruled the roast in the home of Italian luxury.
Suiting with a twist
This season is all about waving goodbye to the boring black tuxe and saying hello to suiting with a twist. Dip your feet in oversized tailoring like Fendi and Giorgio Armani, try applique or printed designs as seen at Marni, or go all out with an opulent velvet embroidered suit to join the Dolce & Gabbana gang.
Anyone that indulged in the glorious new Prada menswear collection is already adding all nylon everything to their online shopping basket, but my favourtie part of the show was the plethora of bold clashing prints, from bananas and neon flames to dancing women and galaxies. Pile on the patterns and embrace maximalism amongst a see of utilitarian styles this season, its very Versace.
Embrace the ongoing workwear and outdoor gear trend by pairing hiking boots with everyday outfits as seen at Zegna, MGSM and Armani, or pile on boxy backpacks a la Tod's, rain hats a la Prada, and shearling jackets a la Gucci.
Dean and Dan jumped into the cowboy trend quite literally this week, dressing models like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner in fur, tassels and rhinestones, along with a parade of men in Stetson hats, checked shirts, fancy boots and of course, the humble blue jean.
