Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, Milan Men’s Fashion Week strikes again. The timing actually seems to make more sense this year because it’s so fucking freezing in LA right now that I wouldn’t mind wearing one of next year’s coats over the one that I bought this season.
Saturday was a big day with a lot of important shows beginning with Jil Sander’s for Jil Sander in the morning. Her collection is simple with boxy, minimal shapes and featuring the double-breasted jackets and large-scale plaids that you’re going to see everywhere next fall. I was a little disappointed by the Ermenegildo Zegna show after their slim, sexy collection for Fall 2012, which was my favorite in Milan last year. This year’s is more rocker than usual but struck me a bit cold with its pale grays and shiny silk fabrics.
