Diesel Black Gold SS 2016

Diesel Black Gold presented its Spring/Summer 2016 collection during Milan Fashion Week. For this collection, creative director Andreas Melbostad reworked an adventurous safari inspiration setting it in an industrial, metropolitan scenario.

Through a modernist approach, the utilitarian and the urban are combined in the collection, which is rooted in a stark, masculine aesthetic. The cold color palette, ranging from chalk white and pale gray to black and blue, enhances the sharp attitude.

New volumes are introduced in the outerwear. Survival jackets, bombers and parkas featuring pockets, flaps and adjusters, are cut for an oversized fit. These contrast with the skinny silhouettes of denim pants, which are cut extra long to achieve a crushed effect. They also come in textured versions with horizontal patches stitched all the way up the leg or are coated for a glossy vinyl-like effect.

Layering is at the core of the collection. Elongated utility vests, as well as iconic leather biker jackets embellished with grommets and lace-up details, are worn over sweatshirts trimmed with striped details and the season’s new shirts – long zippered poplin styles with funnel necks and long sleeves.

Everything is infused with an irreverent feel, also echoing in tailoring, where suits feature safari pockets and utilitarian details.

Emphasizing the urban, adventurous and functional spirit of the collection, footwear includes chunky basketball-inspired high-tops, as well as canvas desert boots with rubber soles, new biker styles and suede chukka boots.

Minimal, utilitarian bags, worn across the body or hunkered down the waist, are perfectly incorporated into the looks.

Walking in the streets of Milan. #MFW

Hello everyone!! A few days ago i had the chance to attend Milan Fashion Week and to be a part of well designed and executed fashion shows such as Etro, Missoni, Vivienne Westwood, Canali, Diesel Black Gold, Philipp Plein, Daks London and of course amazing presentations like Santoni Shoes, Bally and Ralph Lauren.

The outfit i chose for day 1 was  from Hackett London and my shoes of course from Santoni.

Santoni Man Spring Summer 2016

This season Santoni exits the boutique of via Montenapoleone to occupy the beautiful spaces of Palazzo Bocconi with an installation conceived by Patrick Kinmonth and Antonio Monfreda visionary duo of curators and creative directors, authors of sensational multi-sensory interventions. For Santoni they imagined a dialogue between past and present, tradition and innovation. A collection of collages gathered in a great book of alchemic flavor and it was the protagonist of the presentation. A video in which shoes move in a dream like dimension is also available. 

Andrea Pompilio interview for 200 Steps, Canali.com

To celebrate the SS15 Capsule Collection the character of our June 200 Steps is Canali new Creative Consultant - Andrea Pompilio.

Natural born people watcher and one of Italian fashion’s brightest new stars, Andrea describes his creative world as a melting pot of influences. In the video he explores his own inspirations, musing upon key locations from his life and career ahead of his debut catwalk presentation for Canali in Milan next Monday. He’s happiest on the move, in the midst of bustle, relaxing in the airport lounge. His collections, with their sportswear inflections are designed for ease, comfort, motion and versatility mixing function and aesthetic in a way not normally associated with the traditions of tailoring.

Milan Fashion Week SS15 Day 1

Hello everyone!

Finally I am back after a crazy weekend in Milan for the Mens Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015. It was one of the best seasons with some of the most extraordinary and luxury collections ever. I attended several shows like Costume National, Vivienne Westwood, Canali, Dirk Bikkembergs, Etro, Phillip Pelin and some of the best presentations like Santoni, Brioni, Tods, Bally, Marni and many more. For the first day I chose that amazing Vest by Two Italian Boys, pants and shirt by Brooks Brothers, shoes by ShoePassion and Illesteva sunglasses. Those amazing pictures were taken by Julien Thiverny. You can visit his website here.

Photos from the other days will be up soon on the site in the next few days.

Until the next time keep up the gentle mood.
