Milan Fashion Week 2011 was held in Milan from 15 to 18 January 2011.  And here I want to present a review on Men’s Fashion Week Autumn / Winter 2011-2012.

The top legislators of men’s fashion from the fashion houses Dolce & Gabbana, Jil Sander, Roberto Cavalli, Bottega Veneta, Emporio Armani, Vivienne Westwood, Prada, Gucci, Versace, Dsquared2 and many others came in the Italian fashion capital.

Dolce & Gabbana

For example, male by eyes of the brand Dolce & Gabbana is still the same smooth, metrosexual, a dandy and a little bit of Italian in his soul.  In the menswear collection of this brand dissonance between the upper and lower part of the attire dominates. Baggy pants at a low planting contrast with tight shirts and slim-jackets. In some models, strap gives way to narrow belt suspenders. Particular attention is paid to Chinese prints and blazer.

Bottega Veneta

The work of Bottega Veneta Modest made a note of brightness in the demonstration of the first day of the week. There were sharp orange and dull blue, diluting with their presence basic black and asphaltic on the podium. The place of the classical three was taken by non-classical quartet, consisting of trousers, shirts, elongated jackets and shortened jackets, business suit jacket with narrow lapels.

Vivienne Westwood

British designer Vivienne Westwood has added a touch of fun to the show of her menswear collection Fall / Winter 2011-2012. Boy models appeared on the podium with retracted back hair and with bright red lipstick on their lips. Modernized Collection had the proven styles of the 1950’s, knitwear and expertly made colors.

Marni and Emporio Armani have also demonstrated their collections. Emporio Armani also gave preference to rough skin tanning by creating more aggressive male image.


You can recognize Missoni clothes at first sight – these geometric prints cannot be confused with any other. Another nice feature of this fashionable clothes of this home – they are very comfortable, it’s easy to understand, even just by looking at photos from the Milan Fashion Week 2011.

Missoni focused on bright colors and flashy prints. He presented the men coats that have become a central element of the collection.

Burberry took male model to the catwalk in shirts and sweaters in the mesh, biker jackets and high leather trousers with accessories in a military style.


By idea of Donatella Versace, model of Versace instead of rocker romance demonstrated revival of glam and rockabilly. They defiled in the narrow leather pants with fringe, especially shortened or tucked to emphasize the shoes.

Designers of Versace shod their male model in high boots, decorated with silver buckles, zippers and rivets.


Founder of the fashion house Jimmy Etro was a connoisseur of vintage fabrics and art collector. The spectacular abundance of prints and drawings in the curious combination of collections of Etro comes from here. Generally,a fashion show of the brand is a kind of master class. And the most difficult topics are raised here. For example, how to combine the cell with peas, or what to wear with a velvet jacket, but not to look too solemn, or simply ridiculous.


A new collection of menswear by Gucci – seasoned, if not boring. However, the costumes, although of the same type, but sitting are excellent and suitable for different occasions.

Neil Barret

In the collection of Neil Barrett are a lot of bright things – a jumper with gradient color transitions, elongated cardigans, and leather pants with a bold finish. When you look at them, there is inevitably a feeling that all this we have already seen, but the overall impression of this does not spoil.

Z Zegna

Z Zegna is a democratic line of Ermenegildo Zegna. The collection features clothing in the casual style, but not fresh. Clear silhouettes, nice colors and interesting combinations of textile designs will not get bored.

So, Milan Fashion week 2011 completed its work, outlining the prospects of development of design in menswear. There are many offrers, they are diverse, and most importantly, they do not restrict consumer choice in their own inimitable way. Be of good cheer, my friends!
