The menswear edition of Milan Fashion Week is back in full force. The Spring/Summer 2023 season brought in a hint of nostalgia with multiple key trends making a comeback, helping us navigate the best ways to dress. From Versace’s pop statement pieces to Prada’s redefined tailored items, here are some of the highlights of the Milan Fashion Week SS23. Take a look at it below.
A new generation of Versace Men strutted down the runway, fully capturing the collection’s youthful openness, optimism, and energy. The Spring/Summer 2023 will see re-energized graphic prints in pop colours featured on shirts and t-shirts, creating new icons from the brand’s visual signatures. The metallic colours in accessories such as bags and shoes are heavily prominent.
The Spring/Summer collection at Ermenegildo Zegna boasted light silhouettes such as kimono-cut jackets, impalpable coats, shirts and tops that double as outerwear. Models walked in crisply tailored blazers without collars, adding that lightweight element to the entire collection.
‘An ageless sense of freedom to play, as we rediscover the luxury of free time,’ Silvia Venturini Fendi described the SS23 collection. A soft take on tailored pieces, animal prints, and denim everything brings in the ‘90s nostalgia. The signature monogram was the staple of the entire collection with newly added elements.
Titled ‘The Seeker’, Dhruv Kapoor’s latest SS23 brought in unconventional silhouettes, colourful heavy prints, loud graphic prints, neon shades and we are here for it. The collection features loose silhouettes, jackets, neon-embellished overcoats, biker shirts, and printed ensembles.
Raf Simons and Miuccia Prada brought in a harmonious touch to the SS23 collection by capturing the essence of the Italian fashion house. The collection can be mixed and matched with others, making the utility of each piece. Suits, overcoats, sweaters, shirts, denim were the staple of the collection. A key trend spotted was the multiple checkered prints in the shades of red, blue and pink.
Looks like the ‘70s are back in a full-form and are here to stay. Designer duo Dean and Dan Caten showcased a collection inspired by surfing and biker culture, also an ode to Bob Marley. The collection comprises biker-style jackets, hats, t-shirts, tie-dye separates, and crochet knits.
Etro created a breezy set of looks consisting of floral prints. Loose yet functional clothing that is perfect for the hotter months. Think pieces such as sheer shirts, pleated pants, and loose silhouettes everywhere.
