Well, yesterday wrapped up another Milano Moda Uomo and here are a few little miscellaneous tidbits and loose ends worth mentioning from collections that I did not feel compelled to post in their entirety.
It seems like pinstripes (along with other classic men's suiting patterns like plaids and checks) made a strong showing. Even minimalist Jil Sander got in on the action...
I don't know why this tickles me so much, but Costume National costumed their models like extras from "Easy Rider" or members of neo-psychedelic band The Cult (remember them?). I really like it... and I also really like the complete non sequitur nature of the chef's knife set tee shirt...
Burberry Prorsum rolled out animal prints, even on sunglasses (check out the last look closely)!
And finally, I just have to say that Donatella Versace surprised me with a few pieces from her F-W '13-'14 collection. I have never been a fan of Versace. Not to put too fine a point on it, but it has always struck me as utterly tacky, with all the inelegant Baroque arabesques and faux-Roman heads. But here, she is rocking some amazing suits in window pane plaid and extra large houndstooth, along with some great animal-like prints (giraffe and leopard). But the most fascinating thing about this collection, which is otherwise littered with arabesques and tacky sportswear, is the return of the wide and short neck tie last seen in the 1940s! LOVE it!
