So you don’t miss out on any of the new men’s Fall/Winter 2019 collections this week in Milan, we’re sharing some standout debuts below.
In a metamorphic exploration of the new youth, Marni’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection first began with the classics—and then ran with a sizeable twist. In an all-black space lined with walls of speakers and sound equipment, we saw details like loose and lanky tailoring and wide-legged pants with floor-dragging hems, brought to life through a vibrant medley of color. Traditional suits and overcoats were reimagined in ample cuts and liberties were taken with patterns, employing a mix-and-match idea in a pairing of opposing-printed jackets layered over a striped shirt, and worn with white pants and a cheetah print shoulder bag.
Aspesi played with subtle experimentation for its Fall/Winter 2019 collection, incorporating a number of sophisticated basics and technical outerwear with a lighthearted mood. Free of glitz and embellishments, the garments were captured in front of a simple concrete wall, where the dark palette of navy, brown, gray, and burgundy seemed right at home. Paired together with ample layering, the relaxed silhouettes created a nonchalant effect, making the Aspesi wearer appear undeniably easygoing and cool. A highlight of this season was the sleeping bag-inspired line of down jackets, which come in ultralight styles and reflective nylon, and are thermos-sealed to make them suitable for all climates.
Crystal chandeliers, stone columns, and marble-inlayed floors created the runway for Pal Zileri’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection. As models paraded through the space to a soundtrack of classical orchestrations like Johannes Brahms Hungarian Dance No. 5 dressed in double breasted coats and pinstripe suits, one couldn’t help but think of a scene out of a romantic era novel. Merging a number of influences like sense and sensibility, vernacular and new wave, and the male-female dualism, the collection featured deep hues, heavy wools, silks, and brocades and could easily be considered the embodiment of modern romanticism.
Ease and elegance were exemplified in Brioni’s Fall/Winter 2019 collection. Photographed atop a simple taupe backdrop, the garments were seemingly timeless, featuring a number of classics like plaid overcoats, turtleneck sweaters, and sleek blazers. Tailoring was precise, yet caressed the body, and materials ranged from velvet to wool to crocodile leather, ensuring a range of options for any occasion—day or night. One of our favorite looks was the black velvet tuxedo jacket paired with the white trousers with the black silken stripe.
