Men’s Fashion Week kicked off in Milan on Saturday. The collections are being published in our fashion-show galleries as they’re ready — speaking of which, hello, Burberry Prorsum. Hello, Costume National.
Christopher Bailey turned out an impressive 43 looks, awash in of-the-moment neutrals and loaded with Burb’s inimitable trenches, but toughened up with a run of studded leather vests and jackets. (Click here to see a video of the Burberry boys struttin’ it live to “House of the Rising Sun.”) Though Bailey allowed his men to show a little skin by way of netted tanks and cropped trousers, Ennio Capasa went quarter-monty with flesh-colored, belly-button-baring mesh tops (sliced diagonally with a graphic slash) and high-sheen short shorts. Also worth a shout-out: Costume National’s too-cool tucked-away ties.
