The first maison to take to the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week has been Ermenegildo Zegna, that amongst the trends of the next winter proposes a simple style, decisively business-inspired, in the classic colors of the winter season, as camel, burgundy and blue, this last one distinguishing feature of the elegant men’s suits we saw on the runway. Among the more casual proposals by Zegna, there are the neoprene tech fabric sweatshirts and long quilted coats. Sweatshirts are also part of the Diesel Black Gold winter collection, but embellished by fur inserts. Denim, of course, leather outerwear and total black outfit are the strong points on which the maison of Braganze insists, but there’s also room for some tailored suits of clean design. Emporio Armani presents a collection for the different man’s needs, from the elegant suit with palazzo pants to the EA7 selection for sportswear. A dark-gothic style with no doubt is the one by Dsquared2: leather outerwear, big embracing capes, all precisely in black. Mauve, violet, and a deep bordeaux are instead the colors to dare in 2017-18 winter according to Salvatore Ferragamo, along with tailored suits and essential lines: a timeless and sound elegance, with high waisted pants and cashmere pullovers in tobacco shades. Accessories like big leather sacks to wear like backpacks, tricot gloves and Chelsea boots’s soles with an industrial touch, really stand out. A modern turning point then, for the florentine maison, thanks to the new flow started by Guillame Meilland, new creative director of Ferragamo, here at his debut at the Borsa of Milan. Therefore, save for a few exception, also the next winter the trends of men’s fashion will be characterized by a classic and essential style, enhanced by the latest hi-tech materials.
