Milan Fashion Week Men's: Fendi and Giorgio Armani offer tradition and modernity
The fourth day of Men's Fashion Week in Milan was marked by eagerly awaited shows by Fendi and Giorgio Armani, which presented reinterpretations of male wardrobe classics along with ultra-modern pieces for the 2020-2021 fall-winter season.
Elegance was the watchword in the Fendi runway show, but it was a concept of elegance which has been entirely revised by Silvia Venturini Fendi, who notably presented photo-chromatic pieces designed in collaboration with Kunihiko Morinaga, the creative director of the Anrealage label. A far cry from the streetwear trends of recent seasons, male wardrobe classics were back, but in reworked and functional modern versions.
For its part, Giorgio Armani also presented classic silhouettes with pinstripe, check, and in some cases, velvet suits, in slate gray, midnight blue, and even green. There were also long functional overcoats with multiple pockets, which were often made of contrasting materials. The fashion house also unveiled several futuristic outdoorwear pieces, many of them snowsuits or outfits that would be equally at home on ski slopes as they would be in more urban settings, which were predominantly in wool and cashmere.
Milan Fashion Week Men's is set to end today, on Tuesday, January 14, with a show by Gucci, which will be followed by shows to open the next men's Fashion Week starting at 5:30 PM in Paris.
