I was watching the menswear shows and I was a bit sad because almost all of them were boring nad not interesting...But then I saw Burberry!! Bailey is a genius and his last collections show this thing. Here the colors, the double breasted coats and the use of materials is so chic that define an evolution (definetly) for the brand: more luxurious and cool, but also with a lot of creativity. The prints, the use of PVC capes (maybe it reminds to you the YSL show...), the color not fluo but not classic are intersting and the patterns too, the down jackets are really cool because of the lavoration (the aestethic) and the details (very lightfull). I also love the use of fur (chic because it's not "uniform" but made by geometries and decored with contrast materials). The sweaters are very interesting for lavoration and mixed of materials. My favourite jacket is the left one in the third pic, the only thing I have to criticize is about accessories. I love the crocodile bag (not so Burberry Style but awesome) but I can't see that shoes and bags, oh no.
However is a great collection and I love every season more Burberry I'm litterally dying to see the womenswear collection of the brand...
Summary of the men shows:
- Prada: Maximalism or simple absence of creativity...?
- Bottega veneta: leather and shapes classic but beautiful, but where the creativity is?
- Costume National: an evolution, finally, Ennio Capasa purposes something new and reallyc hic, interesting the asimmetries.
- Ermenegildo Zegna: the brand purposes new trend and went out of the clichès, elegant the addition of the fur and for the daywear the itlaian maison presents a travel-glamourous man with a lot of charme.
- Gianfranco Ferrè: a delusion after the amazing show of the f/w 2010 this is boring, classic and is somethign horrific to see at ferrè...Where is the creaivity and geniality of Aquilano&Rimondi?
- Jil Sander: Somons goes on with the fluo trend and the extreme simple lines that he creates. I like the collection because it's really Jil Sander style but I don't like the jacket too sportly!
- Missoni: old clothes and not so new, the brand made a lot of effort in womenswear but there's not creativity in menswer. The only new thing are the hats that cover the faces but the appearance of the models is more like old people than mysterious young fascinating men.
- Roberto Cavalli: interesting knitwear and fur coat but the other compeltely boring!
- Salvatore Ferragamo: clean collection, elgant and perfectly allineated with the philosophy of the maison. I love the use of whtie and soft (but strong) color: Massimiliano Giornetti made a wonderful work...the contemporary dandy!
- Vivienne Westwood: one word: finally a wearable collection....
