The Best 5 things about Milan Men Fashion Week FW15  Give Me Five

Ciao - ciao. 

The Milan Men Fashion Week fashion is over. Farewell to the ranks of models in a flurry of fashion shows, clothes and emotions have swung our minds between joy and disappointment, ecstasy and frustration.

Bye - bye to the men in short skirts, those strangled by mileage scarves, muscle guys squeezed into skimpy yellow canary pull, the aspiring rock stars, the unrepentant dandies and all those who have been sacrificed on the altar of the next trend.

Ciao - ciao Milan. Welcome to our 5 best collections.

#1. Salvatore Ferragamo: into the woods

Massimiliano Giornetti transformed the catwalk in a shady forest inhabited by refined creatures. It's a tactile, material elegance, composed of relaxed volumes, traditional tailoring and touches reminding of a dreamlike nature. The suits, the double-breasted jackets, the bluson, the mohair thick sweaters are basics of the male wardrobe that, mixed with the huge, dramatic scarves and prints of birds and flowers, give them a surreal allure. Ferragamo's creations have a whispered, romantic, yet manly sensuality.

This is a subject always under investigation." Miuccia Prada continues to explore the relationship between the male and the female wardrobe and brings to the stage in Milan her answer.

Textures, materials and patterns meet and collide a dress, after another, becoming the backbone perfect for a new tale fashion signed Marras.
