This week it’s all about the boys, as Milan kicks off the second Men’s Fashion Week this month.
Designers and fashion enthusiasts have left the runways in London behind and have flown to Italy for the ongoing showcase of the latest trends. The show kicked off with Dolce & Gabbana showcasing its winter-autumn 2014 collections for men, which had an unusual cast of 'ordinary' people walking the catwalk, instead of professional models. Shows will carry on until Tuesday before heading over to Paris for the third instalment of trends for 2014. Other noteworthy designers showcasing include Vivienne Westwood, Prada, Burberry, Roberto Cavalli and Missoni, which showcased on Sunday. Fendi, Gucci, Emporio Armani and John Richmond were featured today, and Dsquared2 and Giorgio Armani present collections on Tuesday. However, the event started on a slightly sombre note as news arrived that the CEO of the family owned fashion house, Missoni, was reported missing. Doubts on whether the Missoni show would go on during Sunday were cleared when the fashion house decided to go ahead with its showcase. Men’s Fashion Week is relatively new to the fashion world, starting in 2009, and has since been going on due to a push to provide a platform for the growing popularity of menswear. Since its inception, Men’s Fashion Week now runs in many cities including London, Paris, Singapore and LA. Fashion lovers who missed out on Men’s Fashion Week won’t have to wait long until Fashion Week returns to Milan, with the original Milan Fashion Week hitting the city on 20th February to showcase the latest women’s fashions.
