Milan Fashion Week Men’s has wrapped up for another season and before the international circuit makes its way to Paris tomorrow, we’re taking the opportunity to look back on Spring/Summer 2020, thus far. While street style lit up the laneways of Italy’s fashion capital, the real showstoppers were found on the runway as a slew of internationally recognised designers presented new season style.

There were many different interpretations of what Spring/Summer 2020 will bring. The use of technical fabrics dominated the scene, as well as the introduction of recycled linings and sustainable materials – finally. Similarly to SS/18, bright colours are still going strong especially amongst the likes Burton, Versace and contrastingly Armani, Zegna and Sunnei introduced earthy tones.

Scroll below for the highlights from Milan Fashion Week Men’s.

Fame and rebellion is the theme around the latest season of M1992. Think a mix between punk-luxe and sharp, old-school tailoring.

Always translated through impeccable silhouettes, SS/20 saw an unusual triumph of vibrant green, orange and brown for a new Emporio Armani.

Zegna

Surrounded by sand and an abandoned, rusty bridge provided the frame for Satori’s newest collection. SS/20 was characterised by the use of recycled wool and nylon, relaxed tailoring and soft pastel colours.

Sunnei

Simplicity and fluidity was the theme for the latest collection of Sunnei. SS/20 was made up of very homogenous variations of colour, embraced gracefully through the urban location, fully painted and surrounded by water.

marni

This was art and fashion at its finest. A masterful balance of contrast, clashing and a collision of colours with a sense of rebellion intertwined.

Ralph Lauren SS/20 – like seasons past – could be defined as the perfect wardrobe for the modern and confident gentleman. A combination of brilliant and vivd colours and outstanding tailoring.

versace

Versace SS/20 is centred around the celebration of modern masculinity. Punk and street elements were represented by pop-art graphics and was reminiscent of the transition from adolescence to a more sharp and mature look.

Marcelo Burlon follows his own rules and this season saw everything from tailoring to technical, jacquard to bright blue nylon and precision to functionality.

Philippe plein

Now this is production. The huge show opened with a monster truck and biker as if it was pulled out of Mad Max. SS/20 showed Plein’s real essence – bold and loud – and triumphed fluorescent colour and studded leather.

Entitled ‘Machine Vision’, this was an interesting take by Giorgio Di Salvo. A reinterpretation and recreation of video image through the use of technical fabric.

A swim in the past through tie-dye prints, old-school bombers, Hawaiian shirts. Avant garde sunglasses and technical fabrics sat alongside the looks as SS/20 presented dualism between what has been and what is to come.
