Milan Fashion Week Men ended on Tuesday with a sense of unfinished business. Nearly all shows were virtual and there was little buzz in the city, though designers conveyed unreserved optimism in their videos.
Never before had Milan Fashion Week Men showcased so many new international labels, notably Tíscar Espadas and Mans from Spain, Franc Elis and Zenam from Africa, and 424 from California, all waiting to be discovered.
On Sunday, Dsquared2, Fila and Emilio Pucci injected a dose of cheerful energy into Milan Fashion Week with their riotous presentations, showcasing sophisticated collections liberally sprinkled with sporty notes.
There are two opposing camps this season in fashion. One sees women post-lockdown refusing to sacrifice comfort for future; the other, led by Dolce & Gabbana, insists women are desperate for a night on the dancefloor.
