Milan Men's Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012-13 - Day 2

Welcome to the my Milan menswear round-up day 2. A lot of hits and misses for me and some just plain wrong but without further ado, here's day 2.

I liked metallic dusting on the jackets. Great layering pieces as expected from Bally.

I love the "color blocking" effect on the blazers it was classic with a touch of futuristic notes which I found very amusing because it did work for this collection. Overall, Bottega Veneta will always be one of my favorites season after season.

Oh, the minimalism that is Calvin Klein. Great safe pieces, but there were a few jackets that made me, "whow, that's cute." The tan leather with the shearling hoodie? Yeah that one. But there were some looks that I thought I've seen from previous collections such as Armani.

Flamboyant as the they come. Emporio Armani once again showed some Eastern influence for this current collection. The wide brim hats were back and some oversized beret-ish hats. The slouch boots again! Maybe I should start shopping for one now.

Check please! I mean checkered everywhere! Even on the linings of a cotton parka. The Argyle effect was fresh and since most of the pieces were interesting it came sartorial and very dapper.

Great dapper looks from Fendi. Luxe work wear to put lightly. Another grey coat with fur lining. I love the little pop of dark blue on rather dark pieces.

Interesting.

Missoni is one of those brands that will always be a hit or miss. ALWAYS. One most of the time the clothing eventhough they were polished and rich always remind me of hobo's (homeless folks). The color story probably. But I'm loving the collection. For my love of not-so puffy puffer jackets I'm in love with the Missoni puffer. 

Thom Browne did it again. Great Avante Garde pieces for men. The formula 1-ish themed collection was a breath/whiff of fresh air. The jackets in yellow were just a great way of pop in color.

Prada or nada! Hands down the best show I've seen this season so far. The sinister militaristic nature of the collection was just oh-so-lovely! Not to mention, a few well-noted actors making a cameo. I wanted every piece and yes including the looks with the skirts!

I didn't really feel the boxy silhouettes of the pieces.

Another great collection from the house Ferragamo. Every tailored pieces looked very luxurious. The black leather jacket with the fur collar, love. The fanny pack? umm nahh. Nice but nahh.

After the disaster that was the Spring/Summer 2012 show, Trussardi  showcased a literal 70's inspired collection. I didn't really like it. I don't think the pieces were inspired nor interesting. I feel really bad since the collections eventhough looked luxe was a bit costumey.

As we know Vivienne Westwood strives to educate on every show. This time no, it's not Titanic sinking but the melting polar caps. Great outerwear and individual pieces but as a collection, I was a little confused besides the frozen effect the collection seemed all over the place but I still love V.W.

Day2: Bally, Bottega Veneta, Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani, Ermanno Scervino, Fendi, Giuliano Fujiwara, Missoni, Moncler Gamme Bleu, Prada, Pringle of Scotland, Salvatore Ferragamo, Trussardi 1911 and Vivienne Westwood.
