Milan: Men’s Fashion Week (fall 09): trend report

There were clear trends in color for this season; the most startling shade we saw again and again was camel. The summery shade made its debut in the fall collections of many designers, some even dedicating half their line to the color. Don’t just thing trenches, get camels in the form of ankle showing cuffed pants, or warm turtle necks, even go in for a hardy camel leather coat instead of a predictable black one.

Its all about the gloom and blue this season; John Varvatos sent the message out quite clearly with his whole collection dipped in the darkest navy. Blue can be fun, choose blues with a bit of quirk like baby blue tinted leather jackets, or allow cartoon figures to make a statement like seen on the Iceberg runway.

At the opposite end of the spectrum; reds popped up practically everywhere, some done subtly like a red crisp shirt under a slick dark suit others creating bold statements with reds being used for coats and dinner jackets, if you don’t want to see red this season choose the subtle highlights like a red scarf, or a brilliant red skinny tie.
