A Quick Roundup of Milan Fall 2020 Men’s Looks
With Prada’s innovative set design that reinforced its geometric presentation, Gucci’s new interpretation of art-school-cool, and Iceberg making its return to the fashion capital, we highlight some key looks from Fall 2020 in Milan.
Silvia Fendi commissioned Kunihiko Morinaga, the designer behind Tokyo-based label Anrealage which was shortlisted for the LVMH Prize last year, to help with the collection. The result of this collaboration was most evident with the abundance of dual-texture jackets, but a series of chunky rubber rainboots and updates to the Italian label’s bag line were a welcome surprise.
Geometric patterns were the star of the show, from the spatial set design to the numerous prints that were prominently featured on a series of sweater vests paired with tailored trousers. The designer experimented with proportions, with exaggerated coat lapels adding a new dimension to the classic jacket styles.
Vintage-inspired looks in cropped and oversized fits, ripped jeans, and traditional tailoring were a whimsical update to collegiate cool. If Yorgos Lanthimos ever made a movie about an art school, this is what they would wear.
Making its return to Milan’s fashion schedule, Iceberg incorporated a number of recent trends — most notably side bags and fanny packs — into its rave-inspired sportswear.
A COLD WALL
The designer had an ambitious inspiration for Fall 2020 — the history of human evolution. However, the collection was a nuanced and brilliantly crafted series of looks that handled the subject matter with ease by balancing an earthy color palette with sharp cuts and subtle yet effective fabric techniques.
