Here are our final three picks from the recent Milan Men’s FW 18 shows.

Prada

Prada stood out with its collection that remixed house codes and prints with a strong focus on nylon, the fabric made famous by their iconic backpacks in the 90’s. It covered literally everything from baggy trousers to bucket hats as well as a special collaboration titled PRADA invites that saw creative minds Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Konstantin Grcic, Herzog & de Meuron and Rem Koolhaas interpret the Black Nylon.

Valentino

Valentino’s Pierpaolo is on a roll. His smart tailoring and uncanny sense of colour have been apparent in his collections for the house and he carries on that story for autumn/winter with elongated coats and colour-blocked layering. The VLTN logo introduced in spring on T-shirts makes another turn on the runway in down coats and jackets. The latter was made in collaboration with Moncler.

Dolce&Gabbana

Dolce&Gabbana love putting on a show and this was truly a show of force in numbers. With over a hundred looks, the collection had everything, from a cast of social influencers and models, to a mini concert by Maluma (unbeknownst to this reviewer but a quick check on Instagram reveals that this Columbian singer has followers six times the population of Singapore.). The clothes were as usual, brightly coloured, deeply embellished and Instagram ready.
