Milan Fashion Week:  Gucci Designer Frida Giannini knows how to deliver clothes that are ready to wear.   Her menswear collection for Spring 2012 strength is it’s just so desirable. From the cut of the narrow pants, to the tailored fitted jackets and the return of the bow-tie for evening – it’s elegant but cool.

I was thinking about Michael Caine of the ’60s,’’ Frida Giannini, the Gucci designer, said backstage to Guy Trebay of the New York Times before her spring 2012 show. “The unconventional, relaxed Michael Caine of “Alfie,the way he wore his suits with an open shirt.’’

The collection felt like it was made for young, fashionable guys like stylist and Bravo TV reality star Brad Goreski, who has made the bow-tie his signature look.  Goreski is currently in Milan reporting for Details Magazine and in the fall you will be able to see him on his new reality show on Bravo called It’s a Brad Brad World.

We love the whole mood of new Gucci Menswear collection for Spring 2012 and we’re sure it will be a hit when the collection goes in stores next year. You can really imagine any man wanting to dress this way.

 

Milan Fashion Week: You can always count on designer Miuccia Prada to stir things up and set a new direction for fashion. The whole vibe at Prada’s Spring 2012 Menswear collection was quirky, eccentric and over the top. From the blue cube seats to the cartoon like, golf themed shirts and pants, Miuccia is once again encouraging men to be more daring, to wear color and experiment with fashion. Backstage before the show Muiccia told WWD that she wanted to deliver a carefree, happy and youthful collection.

The Prada man for Spring 2012 is an arty golfer who loves his kooky flower power print shirts and pants, golf caps and colorful golf shoes. We love the originality of this collection – watch the full runway show here now.

Milan Fashion Week: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 Menswear Collection is built around one idea ‘The Net.’ The perforated net-like fabric was used either in transparent or lined in washed cotton poplin for jackets, trousers, Bermuda shorts, T-shirts, bomber jackets, tracksuits and sweaters. It was the most directional look of the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 collection – inspired in part from the fishermen in their native Southern Italy.

According to the designers, the idea was to update their sartorial roots, and involve the present generation in their fashion story. “We’re in the mood to experiment, to rework tailoring, making it modern and innovative,” Domenico Dolce said at a breakfast get-together with reporters before the show.

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana know how to make men look sexy, but this season they kept it classic with crisp white shirts and tailored suits. There were plenty of new proportions – the pants were slighty shorter, the lapels on the jackets were gone and the whole look was fresh and strong.
